3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, amber color and a large, thin, off-white head of poor retention. Aroma is very yeasty and spicy, floral and fruity esters feature prominently as well. Taste is sweet, fruity, floral, a tad spicy too - it looses its yeasty character to an extent to be replaced by esters. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and weaker than could be expected. Overall the brew is decent and quite drinkable. Would not mind having it more often.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear body, deep orange golden in colour. Tall off-white head, thick with very good retention.Medium lacing left behind. Weirdly nice aroma, fruity, On tap at the Brugge Beer Festival: 2nd Feb 2014: from notes. Unclear copper body with a thin off-white wisp or two. The nose a floral and fruit mix sprinkled with sugar, some banana maybe. Taste is less floral and more fruity, again bananas but now joined by peaches and a yeastiness. Gets semi-bitter towards the end of each sip. Medium to thin body feel, carbonatiion is a little high, almost fizzy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle@De Bierkamer, Kluizen-Evergem 08/2014. Presents a well-managed, semi-dry portfolio of fruity aromatics (pear, honey blossom, some banana) within the style of Belgian blonde ale and is easy to drink. Some metal and a bit of a dive in taste in the mid part, somewhat lacklustre in the nose and yeast profile as with many Proef brews.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hobby brew commercialized through ’Proef’, the creator from Evergem near Ghent now has his own beer company, but no commercial brewery (yet). Medium stable, off-white head, peach blonde colour with orange hue, misty. Aroma of orange, ripe pear, coriander, some grassy and herbal hoppiness. Fruity taste with spicy notes, bit yeasty, caramel maltiness, herbal hoppy finish. Well-balanced and correct but not much of a personality among its peers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stubby bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7%
Clear body, deep orange golden in colour. Tall off-white head, thick with very good retention.Medium lacing left behind.
Weirdly nice aroma, fruity, some bananas but processed-like an not the actual fruit, sugar, some dough. Now that I am thinking about it the smell I was looking for is banana bread but a quite sweet one.
Taste is also fruity but more complex, again banana bread, along with peaches, hops, sugar, light yeast, light wine notes, with a mild but satisfying bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, carbonatiion is a bit high but still on good levels.
Overall very surprised by tis one, it was dirt cheap and sitting on the shelf along other more mediocre beers so I was expecting yet one of the sae but it really surpassed my expectations.
