So they have real labels now? When did this start?
What d'ya mean? The white ones?
No, they have regular looking ones. I guess that I should of noted the names on the two bottles.
But master, white = regular?
Like Henry Ford said, "any color that you want, as long as it's black".
No, these looked normal as in had color labels. In the lower right it had the De Molen symbol. Could these be export only? No sign that they were a collaboration.
Well today I'm brewing, when I'm done I might go to the bottle shop where I saw them. I'll take a picture.
If you scroll down BA's list of De Molen beers (and the list on De Molen website), you'll see quite a few of the bottles have colorfully-designed labels--some with illustrations. Looks like the ones sold more widely in the U.S. are black and white. Not sure if that's for consistent branding here.
I looked at De Molens site, I couldn't find a beer list. But the bottle under the word special looks to be an example.
These were 750's, but yes. And thanks.
The two that I saw had the symbol in the lower right. So the Americans have more info on this than the Euros?
Ahhh. Those are the same labels we have here. A few beers, like engels and amerikaans, have colorful labels, and the older line used to have brown labels with a picture on them. A few special collaborations, like Bat out of Hell, Black Damnation, and Super Saison, all have colors and drawings too. For the most part, however, all of De Molen's beers have a white label with black writing.
That's it. Nothing has changed.
In the picture, under the word special, you see a 75cl H&V 666 and a Black Damnation. This picture is about 2 years old and indeed, they both had "regular" labels.
OK, I'll try and get to the bottle shop to see how new these are.
Oh, I did look and there was no mention of what style the contents was. So I guess that they are "keeping it real"!!
Sorry, should have included a link. It's under Brewery/Beerography
But Jeffo knows much more, and seems to have answered the question.
Separate names with a comma.
