2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I dunno, yeah, it pours with a great foamy frothy sudsy thick cream colored head and lots of lace - color is a hazy amber with a little sediment. And the aroma is massively malt and caramel plus yeast... But the flavor is HUGELY SWEET. Way too. Maybe cook with it. I canít drink it. Body is of course full and round; it does have good carbonation. But the finish is overwhelmingly sweet. Not a session; canít drink more than a bit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2010 750ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, sugar cookies, slight honey, candi sugar, and some spices. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of yeast, light vegetables, and candi sugar. Medium body. Lightly dry, slightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Yeast finish is lightly sweet. Tons of yeast... A yeast bomb, if you will. 10%ABV is hidden throughout.

Poured cloudy dark orange color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Complex spicy citrus, alcohol and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich frothy white head tops this dark gold, slightly cloudy brew. The aroma is clean and malty with no hop presence to speak of. Flavor is very clean for a 10% beer. As with aroma, itís sweet and malty. A beautiful strong golden.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A blond should not be 10%. A tripel should be more interesting. The only disappointment I have had from De Proef. Gorgeous hazy golden pour with a medium white head. Simple, sweet nose announces simple sweet flavor. Just not interesting, and it is pretty much essential to get complexity into a beer this strong.
