3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. How in the BLUE SAINTED CHRIST have I only rated ONE MEASLY BEER from De Proef?????? It seems like madness! Alright, so this bad boy pours murky green/gold with a copper flash. Thick, 2-finger+ off-white head that laces very well. If this was a shade less cloudy this would get a 5 for appearance. Sharp-looking brew! Nose is extremely yeasty, yeah this is De Proef alright... hops are very much in the background, some confused background citrus mixed with some caramel, almost totally dominated by the yeast. Some leathery old apples and a bit of earth here too... Flavours are Nicely bitter, with dried apple, leather, cedar, stale tobacco, earth... A fine beer, but far more in the Belgian Strong Ale category than IIPA. No.

Poured burnt amber/copper with big lasting off white head. Aroma of peppery hop spice, fruit - mango, peach & slight citrus, sweetness of the malt. Taste of peach, sweet malt, Belgian yeast with a tongue coating hop oiliness and a big booze hit. Very interesting - one to seek out for sure.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ar: Pungent tangerine - some peach, melon, and pepper.
Ap: Cloudy orange - medium-large mousy off-white head - very good retention with thick foamy lacing.
T: Lots of citrus, particularly tangerine - high, but soft, bitterness - herbal and resinous hop character comes next - some caramel flavor and a medium sweetness throughout.
P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation - palate seems a bit oily, and a touch fuller, seemingly mixing with the hop flavor - finish is medium-dry.
O: Very bold hop character, with an especially pronounced tangerine flavor - the oily palate and hop character really complement one another, giving a very nice "sticky" impression - solid.

Pour hazy golden yellow nice white head little lace. Aroma stone fruit, slight booziness, citrus, fresh fruits, sugar, caramel. Taste light bitterness, candy sweetness, stone fruits, caramel, citrus. MF medium body fizzy lively carb however very short lived palate. Good beer feels like something is missing but quite tasty and has a great aroma.
