fiulijn (19369) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle; parallel tasting with the US Ale Yeast version
Hazy amber color; generous head. Nice aroma, sugary caramel, the hops are both fruity and resiny, but there is also the spicy touch typical of a Belgian Ale; it reminds me some other attempt to brew a Belgian IPA. Well structured, the caramel flavor is still quite sweet; the resiny and partially fruity hops are clearly joined by a yeast spiciness. Good bitterness level, with a shady final astringency; I still find that sometimes American hops and Belgian yeast can clash a bit,and this can be true in the very end of this glass. More aggressive than the other version, but it also offers a more interesting set of components.

drinking with BuckeyeSammy! As noted, right off the bat I picked up that distinct De Proef yeast that I’ve grown to enjoy. there’s also dark fruits, black cherry and fig on the nose. the beer poured cloudy with sediments, light amber with cream, fluffy white head. reminded me of cognac. biscuit malts, esters. sour acidity and dry finish. dank, basement flavors. complex and tasty.

Funky nose - stale malt. DDemmingJR noted that it smells like de proef yeast. Turns out it was brewed there! Flavor - candied malt. Some darker fruity notes.
