tderoeck (4448) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2011
24/05/2011 33cl bottle @ Café Vooruit (Gent) (2011-225)

Clear deep golden coloured beer. Didn’t get to pour myself, so maybe there was yeast in the bottle, but it was not in my glass. Big creamy white head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: fruity (citrus and melon), grassy, malts. MF: lots of carbon, full body. Taste: very fruity, citrus notes first, then peaches, even some pineapple, turning to a bitter hoppy flavour. Aftertaste: nice dry, crisp finish, lots of citrus, sour notes are very present, alcohol warming the back of the throat. Pretty decent beer.

douglas88 (5842) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle (aged a bit) thanks to Eric. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet bananas, some spiciness, dusty. A rich robust flavor; mostly dry banana esters, some heat, dry earthiness. Quite enjoyable.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle:   Dirty straw, hazy, moderate white head, foamy, nice lacing.   Floral and bready on the nose.   Fairly bright with a sweet tartness.   Sweetness on the nose, soft floral aspects, pale breadiness, a little perfume.   Reminds me of a Saison crossed with a Tripel.   This one is fairly tasty.   Only wished I had the cheese to pair it with.   Soft on the tongue, a little bubbley.   A little tart, slightly dry, this one is quite interesting.   Floral finish, sweet, lingering grassiness.   I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.   Would seek out again for sure.

popery (1372) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Lots of raisins and light malt. It’s not a bad beer, just kinda simple. It reminds me of Valley Brew’s Decadent Evil. I have no idea how this beer is supposed to compliment cheese; personally, I’d take the Flemish Primitive line for that job. Anyway, the beer is golden and a touch cloudy from some suspended yeast. It has a nice creamy white head. The aroma is just raisins, malt and a touch of grassy/citric hops. Taste is mild to medium sweet. It’s fairly well carbonated - lots of little prickly bubbles. Not my favorite from de Proef, but I’m still a fan.
