TrefwoordPunk (732) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark orange with a small white head and an aroma of fresh hops and citrus. The taste is mainly based on the complex bitterness of the different hops and some malts and fruity sweetness. A really nice beer, but not too surprising.

Entrada molt aromatica a llúpol i flors blanques. Poca retenció d’escuma. L’aroma és relativament volàtil. Bona amargor en boca. IPA molt floral. Lleugera i fàcil.

Cunningham (4011) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2012
Hazy orange colour with an off white head. Rich floral hoppy nose. Rich hoppy and fruity flavour. Rich taste, but also mild and easy drinkable.

Very nice bitter hops beer. Great taste as usual with beers by De Molen. Beer reminds me of De Ranke XX Bitter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skakapa (52) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2012
From bottle at tasting arranged by Sällskapet Malte in Feb 2011. Light amber and hazy with a stiff fluffy head. Fruity bubble gums and biscuits, simple aroma at the first sniff. After a few sips, more complex and all the fruity hops find their place. Good bitterness and very well balanced.

MaartenRF10 (1460) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2012
Cloudy amber beer, with huge white head. Lots of carbo made it very difficult to poor this beer making a massive head and allowing the yeast to come out of the bottle. Aroma is delicious citrus fruity hops. Taste is very good, nice balance between the hop bitterness and fruity sweetness. Good body as well.
