NikkTwist (1581) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Cloudy amber pour with a large frothy white head that reduced to a lasting foam and lace. Feels really smooth and mild for such a high ABV. Big tangerine notes. Honey. Marmalade. Figs. Pineapple. Green plums. The coconut only appears at the end. Mostly sweet though the oak tannins add a bit of dryness.

onceblind (4011) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Slightly hazy brilliant gold with a thin sticky foamy head. Nose smells yeasty and a little like coconut with a touch of mango. The flavor is not so hot, with earthy funky coconut and yeasty dough with a bit of peppery melon. Weird.

On draft at CCB. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some sweet fruit, some apple, some yeast, some orange, peach, and stone fruit. Flavor is similar with sweetness, candi sugar, coconut, some stone fruit, and some apple and yeast. Medium to full in body and lingering sweet citrus and yeast in the finish.

The aroma is slightly fruity with yeast and malt. The appearance is orange gold. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of bitterness. The palate is Average. Overall interesting but nothing out of this world.

suprchunk (2158) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Hazy orange colored pour. Small white head that is quick to disappear. Little bit of lacing. A yeasty aroma with some notes of malt. Much like most of De Proef’s run of the mill beers that lack much of anything. Taste is sweet malt with a dry yeasty finish. I don’t think much of what is listed as being added was actually even included. This tastes like most of De Proef’s regular ale lineup.

Bottle. Deep golden body, Off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of coconut, toasted grain, peach, oak, pineapple, vanilla. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lots of coconut in the flavor plus tropical fruit and peach. Light oak, vanilla. A bit boozy, but overall enjoyable.
