3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 03/16/2013. Pours mahogany, dark reddish brown, nice dense creamy head, solid lacing. Aroma is roasted caramel, toffee, big tropical hops with resinous character, thought perhaps a little soapy. Taste is dominated by resinous, piney hops, light tropical notes and cantaloupe even, roasted caramel malts and bitter finish. Medium body, good carbonation makes it pop. Not bad at all, good interpretation of the style.

33 cl bottle @ olio, BBE 30.10.2012
Lots and lots of foaming, definitely brewed at De Molen. Aroma is somewhat stale with fruits, resin, nettles and gooseberry bush. Later also some vegetables. Flavour has vegetables, some berries, caramel and resin. Not good, too much vegetables here.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark ruby brown colour with a thick white head. Aroma of strong nettles, gooseberries and dried fruits. Flavour of strong gooseberries, mango, nettles, grassy bitterness and nuts. Medium bodied, hard carbonation and a grassy finish with loads of nettles. Alcohol burns. Not good at all and quite homebrewish. Also, I don’t like the hop profile here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cheers to Simon for the generous pour! The appearance is deep amber with a small white head. The aroma’s orange peel, resin, slightly spicy hops. Strong marmalade fruitiness with a robust malt profile. The taste is in a similar vein. Chewy caramel maltiness. Sweet marmalade and orange. Sticky resinous bitter hop finish. Medium body, this hides the ABV well. Overall, a really well made beer.

10/III/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) or Biernavigatie (webshop, NL) @ home - bottled: 30/X/12 (2013-228)
Clear amber beer, big creamy yellowish head, very stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, canned pineapple with syrup, mango, some other exotic fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity start, piny hops, pretty bitter, resinous, quite some exotic fruits, bit sweet, malty, honey. Aftertaste: some citrus, sweet malts, alcohol, bitter hops, pineapple, mango. I’d classify this as a double IPA... but who am I? A guy who sure does like this beer!

Vackert röd öl. Bygger tyvärr inte mycket till skumkrona. Tyliga beska av grankaraktär.
