rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - SEP 17, 2012
0.3l bottle from Viti in Vancouver. Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange with a small bubbly fine white head. Aroma: hops, spice - cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, slightly smokey. Palate: Medium bodied, smooth, clean finish. Taste: Armaillo comes out here. Starts out sweet, moves to bitter near the end. Probably not as bitter as a bitter should be, but i really like it.

From Aushopping Petite Forest : Dutch Bitter >> Bire blonde de visu fort avenant : une belle robe orang livrant un col pais et crmeux avec beaucoup de saveurs maltes et un beau nez aromatique. Superbe attaque sur lAmarillo: fruite la mandarine, labricot et au raisin mais fuyante cause dun faible ABV. Heureusement, son maltage intense charnu contre-balance bien le milieu de bouche: la gorge devient trs agrable quand je dcouvre que je gote un biscuit au carmel fruit et moyennement amer lgrement herbac et qui laisse une longue sensation sable granuleuse au palais. Bire bien quilibre qui se savoure en deux temps grce un usage parcimonieux de lAmarillo et gnreux du malt cara. #391 IBU:38 - PLATO:9 - EBC: 24

FinnIckler (393) - GERMANY - APR 8, 2017
UPDATED: APR 8, 2017 Bottle from le comptoir des Saveurs in Brussels. Pours orange. Nose is apricot, orange, citrus raspberry. Palate is toffee sweet at the start hoppy fruity in the middle and bitter finish. Good bitter, just a touch to bitter in the finish, the contrast between the almost raspberry sweetness and the bitterness is particularly interesting.

DrNosha (2223) - Wrttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2017
0,33l Flasche. Die Variante mit 38 IBU. Orange Farbe, cremiger Schaum. Beim Duft wird es gleich recht komplex. Ich rieche rote Johannisbeeren, Crannberrys, Malz, Himbeeren und ganz sanft Holz. Auch der Geschmack ist toll. Beeriger Antrunk. Dann schne Bitternoten. Johannisbeeren, Pfirrsich, etwas Karamell. Im Abgang eine wunderbare Himbeernote. In dieser Kategorie hatte ich kaum bessere Biere!

Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber with foamy white head. Aroma is grapefruit and bitter hops. Taste has grapefruit and grass. Quite nice for quite lower ABV.

Cuso (8577) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle, kindly shared by fajry, many thanks. Amber color with huge off-white head. Amarillo hops in aroma. Taste, caramel malt with light Amarillo hops. Not bad.

Gurthnar (5732) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle at a tasting. Slightly candyish and kind of chocolatey, mixing well with flowery and citrusy hops flavours. High carbo, low-med body, very easy drinking. Tasty.

colui72 (946) - HONG KONG - DEC 19, 2016
Hazy amber-brownish with a large soapy head. Nice fruity aroma (orange, grapefruit, grass). Taste goes on the American Pale Ale side because of the dry-hopping with Amarillo hops, but the caramel malts balance well, giving it a nice toffee touch, which comes after the fruity hoppiness. Very well made, tasty, refreshing, well carbonated.

CanCrusher (1060) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 6, 2016
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Gregor. Clear orange color with a finger of frothy, off-white head. Aroma is blowing my head off! All kinda tropical fruits - mango, tangerine, orange, lychee, maracuya.... Taste starts light bitter, fruity and caramely, than turns to moderate bitter finish, still fruity and refreshing. Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation. Another great beer from De Molen!
