This collaboration beer between Cigar City and De'Proef Brouweru has an aroma and taste of Peaches, candi sugar, coconut and musty wood. Caramel taste lingers in the background as the Belgian yeast shows itself. The beer is an amber color and overall was a decent effort from the two breweries. Wayne Wambles from Cigar City and Dirk Naudts from De'Proef are the master minds behind this brew. Aged with oak chips, coconut and peaches this beer is worth a look.

Bottom Line: Decent effort from both breweries.

750ml corked (rubber) and caged bottle poured into a Chimay goblet.

AP: Rusty amber and orange colour, a bit like clover honey. Frothy white 1" head with decent lacing on the sides that dwindles down to a 1/4".
AR: Peaches, honey, musty wood are the strongest aromas on the initial whiff. Caramel, Belgian yeast and white grape skins underlying the first wave of aromas. There's some sort of bready scent hiding in the background also, like sourdough and toasted baguette loaf. Not really getting any coconut, which brings the score down.
T: Yes! There's the coconut. One of the first flavours to greet me and it blends immediately with the peaches and musty oak/wood. All the aromas are also in the flavours, though that bready component can be more discerned in the taste along with caramel. I'm also getting some orange in the aftertaste, like marmalade at first then turning to the rind. The flavours hit you in stages with the coconut/peach/oak being the first wave and then rest of the flavours following them up to the finish. Interesting, it works for me.
M: Rather smooth, a bit creamy, mildly carbonated and coats the palate with some juicy moistness on the finish/aftertaste.
OV: Very nice effort from DeProef and Cigar City. You wouldn't think the combo of peach and coconut would work and play off each other well, but they made it happen. If you like coconut flavour then you should enjoy this brew. It's not a strong dominating flavour, but it's there at the start weaving in and out with the other tastes. The 9.5% ABV is pretty well hidden, though I do get a little warmth in my belly after several sips. I would definitely drink this one again and it would probably go great with sushi and spicy Asian cuisine.

Bottle poured into teku

So much going on with this beer, the aroma is crazy good. Love tropical fruit and zest notes, smells like a super juicy hopped up APA or IPA. The triple taste is there in the body; nice malty bread and the yeast lends that estery banana and clove as well. A really complex beer that is worth a taste
