4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
My favourite proefbrouwerij brew. Fruity and sirupy as it is, there is a common element to all their beers that seems to have reached an optimal equilibrium here. Starts out very sweet but tender complexities cause for a long finish. One to take in large trusty gulps, a very pleasant beer to drink. Don’t believe the 7% though, you can easily underestimate this beer’s effects.
Hard to find, even in Ghent.. I know only two places here that serve this one. All the better, I guess.

Copper-red beer.Nice hoppy citrus aroma. Also coriander noticable. Flavour is nicely balanced. Again coriander and citrus but nothin overwhelming. A very nice beer indeed.

Orange blonde color, frothy head. Flowery aroma with soap, citrus and a hint of coreander. Flowery flavor, somewhat soapy with loads of mandarin. Evident hop character hidden by the fruit and the flowers.

Bottle at het waterhuis Aan de Bierkant, Gent. hazy amber with a rich, fluffy head that left nice lacing.Coriander and spicy hops aroma. Sweet flavours with good bitterness as well as spiciness (coriander). Medium mouthfeel. Very similar to their Gandavum housebeer, but darker. A well-made and very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 Pale orange, hazy; slim white ring with some lace. Sweet nose, candi sugar, spicey-peppery. Very sweet taste, lots of coriander, bit soupy. Medium-bodied. Beer is virtually devoid of aftertaste. Made perfectly, more than reasonable aroma, bland boring taste. I wonder if they want to start concurrence the big brewers now, at De Proef.
<P> Rerated 9/10/04 Much better impression - especially impressed by the balance of this beer. Balance between hops, malts, orange zeste flavour is great. I have added some points on taste and overall. </P>
Brewed for the village Kluizen near Ertvelde
