3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Dark clear amber liquid with a stunningly creamy white head. Great aroma, malty, raisins, chocolate, plums and barnyard. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is initially a little metallic (sadly), but as it warms up, it begins with lots of dried fruits (raisins). Aftertaste is vinious with quite a nice nutty chocolate flavour mixed in. Quite special for a Belgian, but I really like the fruityness combined with the chocolate flavours :o)

Orange amber color. Toffee and peach in the aroma. Toffee, caramel, nutty bitterness and rubber in the flavor, though not in extremity. Strange flavor. Something went wrong in the brewing process?

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Commissioned beer (like everything from the ’Proef’) named after a baron who once was a regent of Belgium. Cream white, irregular, dense, not too stable head, orangey copper colour with equally divided yeast particles. Strongly nutty aroma, bit smoky, some mango, banana, kiwi, rhum, grass, candi and sherry. Caramelly malt taste with dried fruits, very nutty in the middle, rounded and smooth, finishing in mild hop bitterness and a mild ’toastedness’.
