A - hazy shimmering gold full of tiny streaming bubble topped with a four finger head of fine foam.
S - grassy, tart, and yeasty like a Saison but with some undefined(to me) spice character.
T - heavy sweet grass notes up front with a distinct citrus tart and bitter middle. Leaves a long lasting residual mild peppery light sweet tart bitter combination that is quite enjoyable.
M - ticklish crispy carbonation with a medium body and slightly dry finish.
D - fantastically drinkable if you like Saisons or derivatives of Saisons.
It goes pretty quick and if your not careful you'll certainly miss something. Very interesting, thirst quenching, and just all around plain good.

750ml bottle
Appearance: Golden opaque body, massive white cloudy head.
Aroma: Spicy belgian yeast and banana
Taste: Agressive bitterness, very prominent wheat flavors
Creamy lovlyness The long lasting spicyness overcomes and outlasts the bitterness. This is something made special by the aggressive bitterness (of course not by stone standards) and lack of sickening sweetness common in Belgian brews.
Drinkability: Simply amazing.

BB 6/2009

Pouring a cloudy orange, thick white head.

Immediate notes of metallic hop, but giving way to citrus, malt & fleshy yeast notes.

The flavour profile is wonderful; malt complexity, spice & perfume, yeast, sherbet, honeydew, ginger, late macadamia nuttiness... I baulked at giving this a five, but I did wax lyrical (to my wife's annoyance)... that's good enough for me.

Feels tingly, creamy, with a long palate.

All up a superbly balanced ale; suitable for most occasions, and a joy to drink on its own. Highly recommended.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: (5.0)
- Wonderful cloudy yellow brew with a hint of zesty orange. Big fluffy fingers of white head which slowly settled to a light thin layer over the brew with a thick half-inch ring of lace which is hanging on to the glass.

Smell: (4.5)
- Oh damn this smells good. Herbal grassy floral and zesty hops.. lovely herbal quality, a light skunky hop which is a good skunky, lemon zest, light citrus fruits, sugars, bready grain, biscuit. Right when I cracked the bottle I was in bliss.

Taste: (4.5)
- Bready sweet malt backing, light brown sugars, Belgian candy sugars melded with a great zingy citrus flare while noticeably playing well with great herbs, grassy and zesty peppery hops... light clove and banana from the yeast, and just an overall zesty fruity touch. Solid and fantastic.

Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- Little syrupy, drying, and cloying... also chewy to a point. This is a well carbonated if not over-carbonated brew which is medium bodied. Overall a nice zingy tingle which makes the mouth water.

Overall: (4.5)
- This is one hell of a solid beer. Fantastic really. Everything seems to be balanced so well, and the 8% ABV is dangerously well hidden. One could crack this on a summer day and want it as a session brew, one with full flavor. One of my new found favorites from this brewery.

I received this beer in my monthly Rare Beer of the Month Club. The bottle looks great with a natural cork and wire cage. The label has a nice historical anecdote.

This is a hot beer! I thought I was uncorking a bottle of champagne for a second. The pour is large head of wispy foam that hangs out for a few minutes and dissipates nicely. The nose is very floral with a slight twang that is not apparent in the taste. Lots of clove, honey and spices. The beer is very nearly sweet, leaning closely towards mead territory but with a more mature taste. It is not like anything I have had before. I greatly enjoyed it, but not sure how often I would drink it due to the sweetness.

4.38/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 750 mL bottle into cervoise.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, dirty lemon with high carbonation producing a prodigous 3+ inch bubbly white head. Good retention. Not much lacing to speak of.
S: Herbal spice, pungent hops, floral aromatics (orange blossom?), pepper, and honey.
T: Interesting amalgam of herbal spice (quite spicy!), sweet floral and citrus notes, dry and biting hops (but well balanced by the sweetness), grainy yeast, and a lemon-honey note as well. Quite interesting and complex.
M: Light and effervescent. Pleasantly dry, sweet, and spicy with a hint of bitterness (not as much as one would expect given the hop notes in the aroma and taste...the gruit is responsible for this).
D: I always like it when you can learn something from the label on a beer (in this case the origin of Proost!). The gruit seems to lend an interesting twist to the complexity. Pleasantly refreshing and very drinkable. A wonderful saison-gruit.
