Ignite your passion with this unique multigrain beer. This golden ale is brewed in the typical belgian tradition and brewer's knowledge. The golden color radiates warmth and noblesse. The recipe is based on barley, oats and wheat. Historically the combination of these three grains has proven to be the ideal one. Coriander and spice are to be found in the nose. The smooth flavour is very well balanced and combines a slight acidity with a sweet body and a subtle bitter finish. Alcohol is 7° vol.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2008
It’s a hazy orange-golden beer with a huge, white, creamy and very lasting head. The aroma has notes of fruit, coriander, malt and yeast. The flavour has sweetness and notes of fruit, sharp coriander, alcohol and malt. IMO it’s a tad out of balance.

GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2008
Claer orange golden color with good white head on top. Aroma is malty and in a way spicey with some citrus like touches and some hoppyness in the nose. taste is cake like with hints of coriander and some sour fruits to counter the sweetness. Slight hoppy accents in the finale.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2008
Witbier haze flecked with lace. Yeasty marmalade snout sprinkled with pepper. Tangy citrus/apple peel with robust finishing bitterness and soapy coriander. Solid yeasty ale with some pine and hop presence.

Bottle. Clear medium orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty and yeasty, fruit, toffee, notes of coriander. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (250807)

JorisPPattyn (9529) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2007
Huge white head, pale yellow-gold beer. Spicy nose, garden herbs and coriander, stale cookies. Coriander, yeast, and German (stale) cookies, even Leberkuchen ; citrus retronasal. Medium bodied, alcohol comes peeping out in the end. Again a typical De Proef product; technically very good, but characterpoor to boring. Many thanks to Danny for the sample.

A very nice tasting beer. The combination of the 3 grains makes this beer very special.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2007
(Bottled, 0.33l) Opaque orange with a largeish, very persistent, creamy and lacy – almost Duvely – head. Very fruity, sweetish-orangey, grainy-pale-malty aroma. Slightly acidic, fruity and mildly yeasty flavor – again much like Duvel, only smoother, thicker, and with less hops. Medium-bodied with pretty smooth carbonation. A simple and straightforward recipe, but it seems to work surprisingly well, and doesn’t irritate in any way. You don’t always have to try to be different – as long as you brew enjoyable beer.
