5000 (6600) - 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.

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.

Mora2000 (6097) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2010
The beer pours a dirty yellow color with a white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast and citrus. The flavor is yeast, grass, spicy hops and some citrus notes. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

750mL bottle. Excellent head. Light golden color. Fruity aroma. Nice balanced taste with a bit of hop bitterness to offset the belgian yeast. Some citrus. Excellent beer. Need to try it with cheese next time.
