Bottled on: 22/01/13

A: 1" foamy cream coloured head over murky amber liquid.

S: Lime rind, apricot, peach.

T: Watery malt back bone that underpins a hop presence with lime rind, lemon and apricots.

M: Watery and thin viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation.

O: I have never tried a single hop citra beer before to my knowledge and as a brewer this was a good lesson in its characteristics.

Pours a deep golden orange with a sticky white head.

Aroma is citrus and a touch of lychee from dem Citras. Nice. Slight caramel peeks in. I'm thankful it's a light malt character.

Flavor is a little thin but comes with bigger hop flavor and a light malt backbone.

Light in the tongue with low bitterness. What you would expect from a lightweight beer.

A pretty good light hoppy beer.

On draft at In De Wildeman, appearence is hazy dirty blonde with sicky, foamy head, white sand colored.

Smell is modestly hoppy citrus.

Taste is bready malt with soft hop citrus flavor.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter, slippery side.

Drinkability is good, solid session ale, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

Hazy amber color with a thick off-white head with good retention.
Delicious sweet aroma of caramel, bread, mango and overripe oranges and pineapples.
Flavor of Belgian yeast, lemon, tangerines, Citra hops, peaches, white grapes, bready malt and brown sugar.
Hints of tea bags. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation.
A fruity and citric Belgian IPA neither American nor English) with a superb aroma and good complexity.

On-tap. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed at the Freiburg on agt´12. Pale golden color. Foggy appearance. Froth is white, close, nearly creamy. Rocky crown leaves copious rings on sides. Strong aromas of pine, citric, tropical fruit & resins. Strong resiny flavor followed by heavy bitterness. Even tough standing up malts against hop attack provide a dense & flavorful palate. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Grapefruit & mango join hops to create a long bitter finish & fruity aftertaste.

3.5 Appearance: Yellow, with a cloudy substance floating around, which looks kind of weird. White creamy foam. Not much foam, but nice lacing.

4.0 smell: Hoppy, citrus, mainly grapefruit.

4.0 taste: There is citrus together with some hoppy bitterness. Finished of with a slightly more bitter grapefruit kick.

4.0 mouthfeel: Thin, but somehow with a more medium finish. Gives it a creamy feel. Medium carbonation.

4.0 Overall: I don't like every "De Molen" beer, but this one goes down quite nicely. It's very refreshing. It's quite bitter, but the fruity undertone mellows it out. Also this one isn't as killing as most of the other "The Molen" beers regarding ABV, making it a nice refreshing summer beer.
