MMortier (11) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2008
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.

Pours a clear golden to light orange beer, creamy white adhesive head. Aroma is meaty, smoky and with a hint of caramel and malts. Also some dead yeast. MF is ok, full body. Taste has fruity hops, some malts and a very balanced hop bitterness. Pineapple and caramel. Very balanced beer and interesting use of aroma hops. Aftertaste is dry but fruity with citrus notes. Very nice brew!

imdownthepub (10641) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Gold with white head. Good tropical fruity nose with a hint of spice, fresh & tangy and thankfully this follows into the flavour. Light and juicy fruit flavours, pineapple, mango with a light malty body and a yeasty smack. Very pleasant beer which I would love to try again.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle from Bierkoning. Pours a slight hazed light amber with a nice good big off white head and good lace. Aroma is earthy zesty orange and mango citrus with a little earthy hint, some toffee malts, leather and musty hops. Flavor is light toasted malts, and has a slight weed- marijuana herbal kick to it in the aroma and flavor, some cracker cereal maltiness with lgiht caramel sweetness, then a citrus tart light finish with some mineral and earthy hops in the end. Good stuff!

Douberd (2589) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
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.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2006
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.
