douglas88 (9630) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle (aged a bit) thanks to Eric. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet bananas, some spiciness, dusty. A rich robust flavor; mostly dry banana esters, some heat, dry earthiness. Quite enjoyable.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle:   Dirty straw, hazy, moderate white head, foamy, nice lacing.   Floral and bready on the nose.   Fairly bright with a sweet tartness.   Sweetness on the nose, soft floral aspects, pale breadiness, a little perfume.   Reminds me of a Saison crossed with a Tripel.   This one is fairly tasty.   Only wished I had the cheese to pair it with.   Soft on the tongue, a little bubbley.   A little tart, slightly dry, this one is quite interesting.   Floral finish, sweet, lingering grassiness.   I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.   Would seek out again for sure.

Lots of raisins and light malt. It’s not a bad beer, just kinda simple. It reminds me of Valley Brew’s Decadent Evil. I have no idea how this beer is supposed to compliment cheese; personally, I’d take the Flemish Primitive line for that job. Anyway, the beer is golden and a touch cloudy from some suspended yeast. It has a nice creamy white head. The aroma is just raisins, malt and a touch of grassy/citric hops. Taste is mild to medium sweet. It’s fairly well carbonated - lots of little prickly bubbles. Not my favorite from de Proef, but I’m still a fan.

Hazy gold with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of hops, corn tortillas and light fruit. Taste is of corn and fruit.

3.7
Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2010
The beer pours a dirty yellow color with a white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast and citrus. The flavor is yeast, grass, spicy hops and some citrus notes. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

DewBrewer (294) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2010
750mL bottle. Excellent head. Light golden color. Fruity aroma. Nice balanced taste with a bit of hop bitterness to offset the belgian yeast. Some citrus. Excellent beer. Need to try it with cheese next time.

(750ml bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, citrus, and yeast. Flavor of grass, herbs, and yeast with a dry, somewhat bitter finish.
