Flavour is malty, dry, light floral, yeast, hint of citrus, light fruity, nice malty and hoppy bitter finish, dry. Light-bodied but with a decent mouthfeel. Nice and subtle beer, I’d like to have this as a substitute for pils in bars in most cases.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A dense, white head leaves lacings. The body is almost clear, dark golden in color. Biscuity malty aroma with some grassy hops and a touch of yeast. Medium body, soft carbonation. Lightly cheesy, grassy hoppy flavor with a bready maltyness, bitterness and some fruity hints. Bitter, bready and malty finish. Not my favorite in any way, but it drinks quite easily. 130516

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Obtained @ Willems. BBF 07/11/2013. Pours bright amber orange toffee amber with a patchy white head. Sweet oranges, toffee in the nose, candy, very fruity, nicely sweet, floral hops, sweet malts. Taste is sweet malts, toffee, oranges, candy, very fruity, lightly sticky, floral in the finish with sparkling green hops, sticky hops, light grass, quite hoppy. Mmm delicious glorious hops. Oily body. Excellent APA almost IPA – not an Belgian Ale – and all of this with Golding hops. Just comes to show what De Proef can do if you give them a half decent recipe & enough money to do it properly & motivate him a bit. Bit surprised by the ratings, maybe too EU hoppy?

Pours a slightly cloudy dark amber with a thinnish white head. Aromas of apples, caramel and light floral hops on the nose. Taste shows apple again up front, with a light earthy/tobacco note and some sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel and quite a clean finish. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours clear orange, sparkling. Rocky frothy white head. Nose of Euro hops, slicky palate a bit buttery, guess it’s also and English yeast they’ve used. Finishes with a touch of caramel malt and spritzy bitterness. This is the perfect base ale for a dryhopped bitter / APA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber-blond with lots of head, a lot of carbonation. Reminds me of a simple lager. Not bad but certainly not great either.
