FatPhil (10343) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2013
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Messy yeasty aroma, even though I poured it almost entirely clear. Head was brief. It becomes obvious why in the taste - as itís positively humming with saison grunge. And upon swallowing thereís an alcoholic and acidic kick. A bit fizzy palate. Rough. Eww. Iím sick of messy saisons. Each one makes me more annoyed than the previous.

Xstream (193) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Plain and boring. Especially if youíre familiar with "De Molen" beers this flavor profile really starts to annoy because they have 50+ beers or so, and maybe 5 can be called great and original, most of them donít add anything to their selection, like this one.

Marduk (3636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy orange color. Medium size white head, stays. Sour, wheat, yeast in aroma. Sour, grainy, bit of breadiness in flavor. Alcohol and unpleasant bitterness in aftertaste.

coempa (18) - Reeuwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle from De Molen, at home. The color is hazy dark blonde. The frothhead is tall but collapses fairly quickly, and doesnít last very long afterwards. The taste is that of fresh spices and a touch of fruitiness, with a bitter, and alcoholic aftertaste, especially towards the end of the drinking experience. The bitter and dry aftertaste lasts fairly long. This beer is not top notch, but definitely a good choice for a fine, latesummer evening.

inbirraveritas (1322) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottled, 33 cl. Hazy yellow body with a foamy white head on its top. Nose and aroma ruled by grapefruit and lemon underpainted by earth, bread and hints of florals, mouthfeel is slick. It finishes tart-bitter and gently warming with distinct citrusses and herbs. Liked it.

Tap @ De Molen, gele kleur en niet helder, witte schuimkraag, ruikt naar mout, citrus, sinaasappel, beetje kruidig, niet veel koolzuur.
