Bottle. Hazy golden, whitish head. Fruityness, bit of spicyness and some minerals on the nose. Some breadyness too. Grassy bitterness and citrus fruityness in taste. Lemony juicyness and summer meadow towards the finish. Pleasant one.

danielecamo (704) - ITALY - OCT 24, 2014
In bottiglia. Colore ambrata chiaro, velata, schiuma abbondante. Aroma intenso di erbaceo, terroso, leggero skunky, miele. Al palato subito una base maltata molto mielata, zuccherata, corpo medio, alcool ben nascosto. Finale amaro secco, di nuovo erbaceo e terroso con speziature e pepe derivante dal lievito chiaramente belga. Bottigli in cui il luppolo ha subito uno shock, manca completamente la parte fruttata.

mile (3321) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty – faintly wheaty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness with some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty – faintly wheaty and lightly sweetish - sweetish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Nicely hopped Belgian ale. Bit too sweet/too much caramel for me. In the finish bitterness gets bit sharp/soapy.

bastarda (156) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2014
courtesy of bartlebier, thank you! fruity nose with hints of lemon zest, herbs and a bit of pepper, great mouthfeel, great drinkability, layered taste of more citrusy, peppery, herbal and yeast estery aromas. Interesting beer!

erickok (4093) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2014
Fruity aroma, pine apple, tropical, biscuit malts though and interesting yeast. Well developed, light sweet, full mouth feel. Not very bitter. Smooth and drinkable, not quite the freshness I wanted in the aroma. Another high quality brew from these guys! (Sample at Nüetnigenough)

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
Pours a very hazy blonde with a very large tight head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma has some pear, some wet limestone, a little pineapple, and some herbal hoppiness. It’s an odd combo, but it’s not dissimilar to many of the other De La Senne beers, and is in fact very pleasant the way it’s balanced.

The beer is basically pretty dry with a moderate level of bitterness. It’s got a mild funky earthiness to it and a nice bit of herbal hoppiness. The minerallity is very nice as is the mild spiciness & pineapple.

Totally similar to many other hop forward De La Senne beers, although I wouldn’t be surprised if I found out this one was done with Brettanomyces.
