Belle bière rousse avec un joli col de mousse , elle est très surprenante avec une odeur de litchis. En bouche le gout de litchi reste très présent avec une belle amertume plaisante. Au fil des gorgés ce gout de litchis (soho) devient vraiment écœurant et on ne trouve pas la flaveur de l'amarillo.Dommage on a pas envie d'y revenir.

Beautiful bitter with a generous moss, it is very surprising with its smell of litchis. In mouth the taste of litchi remains very present with a beautiful pleasant bitterness. In the course of the full this taste of litchis ( soho ) becomes really disgusting and we do not find the flaveur of the amarillo. It's a pity we have not desire to drink a new one.

De Molen Amarillo has an extremely thick, creamy, cream-colored, frothy head, a hazy, orange-gold appearance, with numerous tight bubble stream, heavy lacing left behind, and a descending gray cloud, once the bottom contents are swished and poured into the glass. The aroma is strong and rich- hop oil, caramel, toffee, and white bread. Taste is equally bold- rich, sweet bread crust, bread, caramel, toffee, char, hop oil, bitterness, candi sugar, regular sugar, and a brandy aspect from the pronounced alcohol. Mouthfeel is heavy and oily, and De Molen Amarillo finishes mostly dry, super-sweet, alcohilic, and decently drinkable. This beer is exceptionally good and almost worth the over $6.00 a bottle that is charged for it. A great, great beer!

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Drunk 6 months after bottling, label states good for 2 years after bottling.

A: Deep gold

S: Dried apricot & peach, mild yeast and some caramel; not getting the expected citrus/tropical

T: Malt-forward, but fairly bittersweet finish so not cloying.

O: Very drinkable DIPA, no alcohol burn though this is a big, rich beer. Good match for charcuterie, preferably 36m jamon iberico
