Quelle merveille que ce travail dans cette bire Magma. On pourrait dire une bire progressive (pour voquer le groupe de musique franais de lpoque), et cest bien le cas, parce quelle est un mariage technologique (je nai pas dit techno!!) entre une IPA amricaine et une triple belge. Une bire inventive donc, qui est une russite magistrale dans ce monde difficile de linnovation intressante en matire de bire . Les brasseurs en question sont 4 ingnieurs de haut vol, et font preuve dun esprit daventure bien inspir. Cette magma ravira tous les amateurs de spciale, pas dans lancien sens du terme, mais dans le sens des microbrasseries. Ici ce sont plutt des microinventeurs avec lappui de la structure ultra-moderne de la Proef Brouwerij. Bref, regardons la bouteille: trs jolie criture gothique pour le nom Troubadour, instrument de musique du moyen-ge ( lpoque des troubadours...) et devise o se mlent bire et musique cerevesia et musica laetificant cum hominis. Quon se le dise Niveau alcoolique: 9% abv. On ne plaisante pas chez les troubadours (sans jeu de mots...) . Couleur ambre claire allant sur le roux brun caramel. Clart nette. Bulles trs trs fines par gerbes au centre et partout. Mousse beige assez haute, puis nappe bien en crme la bire . Armes de lgumes, carottes, raisins secs, candi et une pointe de Pre Blanc. Volume trs doux sans aller au soyeux. 1re bouche sur le whisky speyside, et lgre tourbe, arrire-bouche amre sur le houblon fin. 2me bouche sur la pomme de terre des polders, labricot et un peu dpices douces. 3me dans laquelle le whisky revient en force, avec de la bruyre et une pointe de violette. La longueur est superbe. La levure souple et soyeuse est magnifique. Lalcool est progressif (encore) et trs bien dos. La finale est riche, fruite mais avec du bois de ft larrire. Quel chef doeuvre concoct chez de Proef qui nous gratifie dune preuve internationale hors catgorie.

Creamy amber-orange, nice persistent foam that is sticky and leaves beautiful lacings. Aroma is has some creamy bitterness, herbal and fruity hop character. Taste is nice warming and creamy, has some herbal kick and bitterness, alcohol warmth and malt body. Many elements that are all superbly balanced. Some bitterness and herbs lingering in the finish. Solid beer, Belgian, not really sure if it is IPA but well, it doe snot really matter.

Dark hazy amber color. Frothy white color. Very phenolic yeasty nose with modest fruitiness. Very phenolic fruity, very yeasty, full body, alcohol well hidden, just well put together. Nice stuff.

GvanGool (67) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2017
Appearance is hazy amber. Nice lace in the glass. This is not my kind of beer. It seems a blend of IPA, tripple and some fruits (banana). Could be it just doesn't pair to well with fried snacks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a triple IPA in the usual sense but rather a Belgian triple meets an IPA. Sweet full bodied to counter the moderate bitterness. Aroma and flavour is a blend of herbal, bread and banana for the triple aspect and light pine and grapefruit for the IPA. This is incorrectly categorised on rate beer.

Grima (2386) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle from Miorge Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours clear amber-red with a short-lasting white head. Aroma has strong floral hops and belgian yeast. Taste has belgian yeast, flowery hops and spicy notes. Not bad, but defenitely no IPA!

Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2017
On tap at Yardhouse. Pours golden with a finger of creamy white head. Yeasty aroma with citrus. Strong alcohol bite with plenty of hops, but enough sweetness to be drinkable. Great beer.

Aroma veel gist met gedroogd fruit en banaan. De smaak is hoppif, romig maar te zoet. De afdronk is bitterder.
