Amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, apricot, candy and spices. Sweetish flavour, yeast, banana and malts. Quite hefty carbonation. Bitter malty finish, hops and yeast. Another nice beer by a great brewery.
(From 33cL bottle @ Tim’s place. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck!!)

Thx! a lot to Sebletitje for this one. Apparently a one-off for a local event, in honour of the 130th anniversary of Koekelberg. Bright orange with a firm white head. Nose is a bit zesty with strong sharp spices, some pepper coming through, sweet yeast & sharp hay. Taste is sweet yeasty, light fruits, sharp hay, quite a bit of spices & some white pepper coming through, light hops, some mellow sweetness, light touch of herbs & peel, touch sugar. Quite yeasty body. Neat.

33cl bottled, BB 20-03-2013. Ambrée-orangée, col beige crémeux et généreux. Arôme présente un bouquet levure distinct de DeLaSenne suivi de notes herbacées et ponctué par un fruité agréable rappelant le coulis de fruits; pêche? et limite de baies rouges. Palais reste ici aussi dans la lignée des nombreux brassins se penchant sur un houblonnage et levure reconnaissable immédiatement. Le houblon est d’ailleurs un atout certain de cette version procurant de fines notes d’agrumes-citron suivi par des malts euro oscillant entre cara, munich-pâle. D’ailleurs, ce fruité me rappelle aussi tout comme dans l’arôme, un coulis fruité. Le palais reste assez sec sur un profil grains très belge. Au final, une petite bière sympa, un cran en dessous de certains brassins uniques récemment produits par DLS. Ici, je retrouve plus une bière belge typique agrémentée par le savoir de cette brasserie bruxelloise.
