sebletitje (9553) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2012
33cl bottle, shared with 77ships, Martinus and Tderoeck. Bottled on 8-4-2012. Cuivre, col pais blanc-beige. Arme est malt moyen laissant penser un bouquet de vieux grains voire de grenier, possible seigle? Palais reste trop effervescent rappelant ce ct aspirine, le tout est sec et terreux avec un malt lger tirant vers un fin caramel. Amertume reste modre en fin de bouche avec ce profil typique de DeMolen qui parfois ne fonctionne pas trop bien pour certaines bires. Ici, cest un trs bon exemple, la bire est ennuyeuse et ne montre pas franchement un caractre qui invite visiter cette bire une deuxime fois.

MoritzF (9500) - 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

tderoeck (8426) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2012
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 its only 8 months old!

Thx. to Sebletitje for sharing this one // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tims De Molen & assorted beers tasting // bottled on 08/04/2012 // pours a bright golden / light amber with a fluffy white head // smell is of sweet white bread, hops, sugar, fruits, sweet herbs & even more sweet spices, cheap American cheese slices & touch of yogurt // taste is yoghurt, sugar, American cheese slices, light vegetables, bitter herbs, lots of Molen yeast, flowers, thick baking floor, bakers yeast, herbal bitter // full Molen yeasty body // its weird but I dont think that it infected or anything, Molen sometimes simply brews this kinds of herbal / spice / whatever beers & they taste like this, even fresh, prefect condition, whatever, // its not my thing but I didnt find it as atrocious as the others, just weird stuff
