harrisoni (19423) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2007
33cl bottle from Noel Cuveliers. Gold/orange with lasting beige head. Belgian yeast aroma, tangerine citrus too. Nice hop kick on the finish. Some tangerine/caramel. Pleasant.

omhper (25831) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden, small head. Strong aroma of ripe red apples. Sweet and fruit with evident yeast character. Rounded mouthfeel with some lively carbonation. Feels like a standard offereing from de Proef with no flaws, but also nothing to separate it from the mainstream Belgian ales. And at 8% I require more character from a beer.

3.7
skortila (5996) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2007
Aroma of citrus and yeast. Hazy, orange coloured with a beautifull, creamy, white head. Taste is sweet, citric, yeasty, some herbal tones. Good bodied beer, some alcohol. Nice balance. Good brew.

fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 2009-02-20, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Hazy golden color; creamy head. Delicate aroma, with some farm, and Belgian yeast; light honey. Ordinary malt flavor, a bit of hay and light Belgian yeast. Correct bitterness. Not impressive.

2006-10-17, bottle, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Cloudy golden color; generous creamy head. Quite original beer, a Belgian blond ale with a touch of herbs, giving a nicer aroma but not that impressive taste; light soap aroma. Residual sweetness, and some vegetables. Dry final with strong bitterness.

3.6
JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2007 Slightly hazed, orange beer; fluffy off-white head. Very orangey/citrussey nose, bit of ...wheat? - something grainy, not like your usual malt. Alcoholic flavour, with alcoholic sweetnes, and still some traces of the citrus, but less markedly than the nose; oranges, figs, preserved fruit. SLick, alcoholwarming, well bodied, near chewy despite the thinnning cold it is served at. Nice beer. Bit stereotypic, but not without merits.

The beer is currently brewed at De Proef, the brewery in Kuringen is only for trial brews, and training of aspiring-brewers.


new trial Aug, 18 : Slightly oppressing nose, which, if one knows the ingredient, is easily identified as garlic. Much more pronounced as in the first bottle. Sweetish spicey taste, bit oily MF.

3.8
Bart (2936) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2006
Hazy light amber coloured with a small ferm creamy white head and lots of yeast on the bottom. Very sweet yeasty aroma, herby, ripe fruits (banana). Full palate, nice balanced body, malty, light roasted. Finish is light alcoholic, sweet yeasty with some light bitter touches and a fruity (again banana) dry finish. Very nice homebrew.
