Bottle from the shop in Bodegraven. It had a huge head. Fruity and hoppy on the nose. Similar taste with a yeasty aroma and note of earth cellar. Might have been a bit old.

Aroma: Tropical aroma of pineapple and lime. Light biscuity note.

Appearance: Cloudy amber body with a massive white head that holds well. Great lacing.

Taste: Grassy, caramel and sharp citrus flavours. Really hoppy. Delicious tangy lime on the finish.

Palate: Medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Light carbonation tickle.

Overall: I’ve not had many De Molen beers, but this is easily the best one I’ve tasted. Very hoppy and full of citrus flavours.

750ml bottle

Pours light orange with a large bubbly head. Aroma of fruity hops, some earthy notes, soapy caramel notes and hints of lemon. Taste is quite fruity and lemony with some grassy hops and malty notes. Finish is bitter and slightly fruity with some grassy notes. Quite nice mix of American and German hops, surprisingly good and a great summer beer.

Sweet, fruity aroma of sweet tangerine oils. Flavour also has that bittersweet orangey feel and hints of tropical fruit. The finish is of very fresh, dry hop. Medium body, medium carbonation. Slightly sticky, oily feel. A real thirst quencher.
