3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75 L bottle from Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. A fluffy short lasting blond head, upon a near-clear, amber colored body. Fresh yeasty up front, offset by a scent of toffee, fruity hops, and some mild tartness. Medium-bodied and fairly dry in the mouth. Taste is quity hoppy, citrussy and light resinous. Notes of caramelly malts down below. Warming alcohol throughout. Subtle brett tones. A very good one, but not as funky as expected.

Thanks for sharing Bill. Pours to a deep orange body with a crisp starch white head that’s frothy and foamy with some pretty nice lacing. The aroma is strong with a sweet candi sugar and a light dry silage. The flavor is sweet and has a significant coriander with some light yeast and minty cinnamon. Honey biscuits.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle -
Aroma - truck loads of ripe fruit in the aroma, some spicy grapefruit rearing it’s head, cut roses and alcohol....strange.
Apperance - reddish golden body, thich white head, lacing was decent
Taste - man, this one seems all over the place...mint, corriander, lime zest, yeast, caramel with a twisting, spicy/yeasty finish. Not sure if I was digging this or not. Kinda different the first 1/2 of the pint, but afterwards...no way I could have finished this bottle myself.
Overall - not sure if this was just an experiment, or if they dumped whatever they had left into the boil but it was just alright. I guess calling it a BSA is as good as anything.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper with a decent beige head and an easter candy aroma. The flavor is not quite as funky as the name would indicate, but enough so, as with many of the De Proef brews. There is a substantial caramel malt base with some spices and a dry bitter peppery finish.
