Lozen Boer (ABV 10%) from De Proef Brouwerij was created for a famous restaurant of that name in Lochristi near the brewery. Lozen Boer loosely translates from Flemish to "gentleman farmer" -- the name celebrates the restaurateur's father who pretended to be a farmer but in fact made his living smuggling cows from Amsterdam into Belgium.

Lozen Boer is a dark burgundy colored abt/quadruple style ale that pours with a small but persistent tan head. Traditional Belgian ale yeast and a complex selection of malts yield dark fruit notes, hints of chocolate, vanilla, anise, and toffee. A notable hop presence on the finish balances the sweeter notes and the alcohol is well hidden. All in all a rich, well-crafted ale worthy of savoring. rating: 91 (out of 100); 25.4 oz corked bottle.

In 1996, Dirk Naudts, a highly regarded brewing engineer and professor, with his wife Saskia Waerniers, created De Proef Brouwerij (the Proof Brewery) in the village of Lochristi, Belgium. The brewery blends modern equipment and technologies with traditional brewing methods, operating predominantly as a rental brewery to develop and produce beers for third parties who do not have their own facilities, or who want to produce experimental small batch beers. Their focus lies exclusively on recipe/product development (never copying existing beers) and beer production.
