Pours murky brown color with large foamy head. Aroma of goose berry, nettle, herbs, malts and some fruity notes. Flavour of goose berries, malts, fruits and some grass. Not good at all.

33cl bottle, shared with 77ships, Martinus and Tderoeck. Bottled on 8-4-2012. Cuivrée, col épais blanc-beige. Arôme est malté moyen laissant penser à un bouquet de vieux grains voire de grenier, possible seigle? Palais reste trop effervescent rappelant ce côté aspirine, le tout est sec et terreux avec un malté léger tirant vers un fin caramel. Amertume reste modérée en fin de bouche avec ce profil typique de DeMolen qui parfois ne fonctionne pas trop bien pour certaines bières. Ici, c’est un très bon exemple, la bière est ennuyeuse et ne montre pas franchement un caractère qui invite à visiter cette bière une deuxième fois.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 30/XII/12 - 33cl bottle @ home: De Molen & assorted beers tasting - bottled: 8/IV/12 (2012-1415) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear deep orange to amber beer, huge fizzy off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very smelly, swimming pool, citrus, peppermint, herbal. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: bitter start, herbal hops, pretty spicy, sourish, cocoa powder. Aftertaste: very bitter, cardboard, bit spicy, dry, hint of sugar. Tastes like the bottle is 5 years old, but it’s only 8 months old!

MoritzF (10095) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 7.5% abv) Slightly hazy, copper to deep amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Slightly sugary sweet malty and distinctively fruity aroma with notes of candied berries, strawberries and peaches, accompanied by shades of caramel in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty and fruity taste with present herbal and slightly woody hops; dry-ish bitter hoppy and quite lasting finish with fruity spots. Really nice. 25.XII.11

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a clear, light orange with a small, whiter head. HUGE yellow apple nice, insane cidery notes and acetaldehyde. Orange cough syrup comes to mind as well. Even small vinegar. Uhhhh. Taste is bitter, soapy, very astringent like over steeped malt. Tannic red apple skins as well. Super tea tannic astringency. What.....happened.....

jmgreenuk (9978) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle from De Molen. Poured a cloudy medium brown with a long-lasting thin white head. The aroma is caramel treacle toffee alcohol. The flavour is medium bitter sweet with a rich sweet malt alcoholic palate and a smooth short bitter finish. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.

3.4
gunnar (9695) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours hazy deep amber with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, toffee and wood. Taste is moderate sweet toffee and malts, piney hops underneath. Lingering dark liquorice at the end.Good for sure.

3.7
The_Osprey (9120) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Slightly chilled bottle. Two years and one day old. Dark orange/red with the usual huge head which endures. Smell - old ale, caramel, yeast, molasses, tangerine. Carbonation - mid to soft. Taste - typical De Molen caramel, liquorice, sweet honey flavours with a decent dose of bitterness. Enjoyable high quality beer. Not quite to my taste though, which reduces the rating slightly.

4.3
Cuso (8935) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 28, 2011
Bottle from De Molen. Hazy amber color with medium beige head. Aroma of honey, fruits, some flowers, toffee. Taste, toffee, honey, citrus, hints of grapefruit. Nice long flowery bitter hops finish. Excellent.
