Pours hazy yellow golden with a fine, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has grapefruit, esters, light crisp malts, peach, doughy. Citrus and a bit a sweet wheat. Medium carbonation, very dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good hoppy dryness on top of a mild sweet base. Not much residual sugar left. Grapefruit, peach and mango. Very dry and quite bitter finish.

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2012
33cl bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy yellow color, average sized rough white head that lasts a decent while. Smell lightly hops, a bit grassy. Taste lightly malts, again grassy and lightly hoppy, delicate bitterness. Nicely balanced, suitable carbonation, low to medium body. Quite fresh, very nice easy drinkable beer.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2014
From bottle at Brasserie de la Senne, Brussels. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head.
Straight up American hops in the nose show a strong grapefruit and pine resin core with minor apricot and orange accents. Malt is pale and cara, lightly toasty, somewhat bready. Fine natural carbonation with soft malt, that’s the highlight. Medium body, semi-sweet, finish is appropriately bitter and a little resinous. It’s certainly well-made, but the ingredients limit the appeal. Yvan’s noble-hopped beers are some of the best in the world, he doesn’t need to be making the prototypical western resin/grapefruit IPA.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2012
Half of a comparative tasting of both Be and Que versions, thanks to the brewers! Very hazy, very carbonated grainy/straw yellow beer, very good white head. Grains, bit bready, and a short sharp solvent nose. Dry, sharp and spiced, other grains (rye), finish has a sudden hoppy (and slighlty harsh) bitterness. Light to medium bodied, well-carbonated. Very grain/malt oriented beer.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2012
33cl bottle. Dorée tirant un peu sur l’orangé et ayant une légère opacité, col blanc. Arôme laisse pas mal de place à des houblons nobles mettant à profit un bouquet d’agrumes fruitée et légèrement herbacé. Pointe de grains et de malt restant discret. Je note également la levure et ce profile typiquement DeLaSenne qui pour moi couvre un peu le houblon. En bouche, je retrouve cette signature de DeLaSenne avec cette levure qui en fait leur signature. J’imagine que br. Le Trou du Diable intervient dans l’ajout du houblon. On y retrouve un houblon amer et citronné laissant percé des notes d’agrumes qui sont en parfait mariage avec la levure, le tout laisse une pointe herbacée en bouche avec en retrait un malt de type pale/munich pour un style belge. Néanmoins, un houblon rappelant le Nelson Sauvin vient donner dans l’amertume une note fruitée qui passe pour un raisin blanc, très agréable. Carbonnation est modérée et donne sur la langue un profile épicé. Le tout n’étant pas agressif et bien digeste pour le volume de cette bière.

kermis (8085) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2015
Draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours cloudy orange with a big white head. Aroma of fruity hops, grass, weeds and light yeast. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Some orange peel coming out in the palate. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
33cl bottle courtesy of sebletitje, cool a Brussels brewed beer, pouring up slightly hazy deep gold with copper hues and tall near white head. The aroma is on the nose-prickly side with some yeast and some yeasty spice and then picking up tart citrus notes and pineapple. The taste has a fresh bright yeasty spiciness as well as lemon to lime and toward sort of a peach note or two. It has a little tartness as well and finishes crisp and refreshing but not light on flavor. Nice stuff.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Peppery spicy yeast, light sweetness, some flowery hoppy nites, and mild bitterness. Pretty good.
