FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2013
330ml bottle (BB Brevinga, Riga)
Initially a very earthy aroma, quite like bramlin cross, later, however, after its settled in the glass, its quite sweet. Has some pungent hoppy hints too. Lovely in the mouth, a great bite and gentle tingle from hoth the hops and the carbonation. Nicely attenuatated. Quite green and fresh hops in the taste, delicious roasted grains, very bready, but not sweet. Love that finish. So crisp and a great noble hop bite. No sign of 7.5% - classic de Molen!

Ferris (13526) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle - Boozey caramel, brown sugar and bread. Cloudy copper with a rich big beige head. Tons of caramel and candied sugars, bit of bread and some bitterness. Very nice, especially if you like caramel.

Scopey (13311) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky dark amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, earthy, musty, cereal, cracker, brown bread, mild ketchup and squash. The taste is toasty, earthy, cereal, cracker, sort of watery, toasty grass, light spice and sugary with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavour is a but wishy washy and muted. Disappointing.
