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.

Hazy gold with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of hops, corn tortillas and light fruit. Taste is of corn and fruit.

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.

750, corked and baled. Pours a crystal clear dark gold with medium amber overtones. Towering, fluffy, eggy platinum blonde head, just a surging monster that keeps you coming back again and again to finally finish the pour. Nice herbal, slightly piney hop nose--surprisingly deep west coast touches rolling through here. Fair bit of fresh cut wood as well, along with plenty of yeasty spicel. Creamy medium body, very low in carb. Toffeeish mid-palate, bits of wood and brown bread. Kind of bland and ordinary flavor profile on the tongue, alas. Mild toffeeish finish. If this beer smelled stronger and tasted as good as it smells, people would really be talking about it.
