Temptation (257) - - NOV 21, 2012
Aromas to flowers and tropical fruits (pineapple, mango) with honey, very warmy and fragrant. Amber colour, cloudy aspect and a perfect white and solid head. The bitterness is dry, with citric peel and flowers. Really nice.

Alengrin (4340) - BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2016
One of De Molen’s more classic beers, an American style IPA with lightly lacing, moussy, snow white head and hazy orange blonde robe. Aroma of mango, biscuit, orange peel, grapefruit flesh, bitter honey, wry grape peel, lychee. Crisp onset, dried mango and redcurrant hints, minerally accent, citrus freshness early on and evolving into a lush, aromatic hop character, citrusy and ’tropically’ floral, softly but persistently and in the end slightly tonic water-like bittering over a rounded, biscuity malt sweetness. Rich, very dry and very long in development, this is an exemplary IPA.

yossamity (4) - zutphen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2016 does not count
Nice ipa but the head is pretty much gone in seconds and the carbonation is too weak in my humble opinion. Nice bitter aftertaste though

bonkiedeaap (607) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle from a local Albert Heijn supermarket. The beer is hazy orange colored and has a large broken white colored head, with good carbonation. The aroma is fruity and hoppy, with tones of citrus, grapefruits, grass and tropical fruits. The taste is malty and fruity with a light sweetness with tones from the aroma and some appricots. The finish is dry and medium bitter and above all very refreshing. Liked this IPA, not as bitter as usual.

Medium body, light silky texture, average good carbonation, dry resinous peppery finish. Overall, a great IPA ; nice fruity spicy resinous character.

vincentvega72 (349) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 Mooi donkeroranje troebel bier met rijke volle schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Fruitigzoet aroma (mandarijn, citrus, beetje caramel). Zacht maar toch vol van smaak met lekkere lange bittere afdronk. Zeer goeie ipa niks mis mee maar De Molen heeft toch (nog) betere....

33cl bottle: Amber color. Orange fruit and spruce hops with faint toffee in the aroma. Banana esters and a nice dry bitterness on the palate. Low carbonation and fairly light-bodied, but top quality beer with an interesting twist, as I’ve come to expect from De Molen.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
