jaghana (4488) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 17, 2012
Bottle 33cl, a cloudy copper beer with good head. Nose is hopy and malty, the aroma is very malty with malt, buckwheat and grain notes, very nice hops bouquet on grass, lemon and pepper, very long bitter aftertaste. Again a good beer from this brewery.

erickok (4138) - 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 NŁetnigenough)

JulienHuxley (4032) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle batch #2, from the Bierkoning. Hazy gold pour, with super creamy white head. Aroma is really really hoppy, piney, peppery notes, intense lemon grass. Taste is bitter, really citrusy, intense grapefruit, really bitter, really IPA-ish, with only a light belgian profile. Palate is med-full bodied with med-low carbonation, creamy. Really tasty.

Bottle (330 ml). Hazy yellow/golden with a medium white head and little lacing. Aroma is of grapefruits, grass, yeast, pine and lemony notes. Taste is lemony with grass, grapefruits, pine, yeast and light bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry and grassy finish. Tasty, super drinkable and quenching. Nice hoppy Belgian Ale!

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
33cl bottle from Belgium. It pours a clean golden color with a large white head. Aroma is crispy, grainy, bready, with grassy and citrousy hops. Taste is similarly crisp, lightly bitter, with more notes of grass, pine needles, hay and citrus peel. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok but less vibrant than many De La Senne better beers

CanIHave4Beers (3537) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2014
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. Itís an odd combo, but itís not dissimilar to many of the other De La Senne beers, and is in fact very pleasant the way itís balanced.

The beer is basically pretty dry with a moderate level of bitterness. Itís 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 wouldnít be surprised if I found out this one was done with Brettanomyces.

theisti (3416) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 18, 2013
~14 oz draft pour in a Lost Abbey tulip type glass at Proletariat in New York. The pour is a lightly hazed golden yellow, with a one inch white head that falls with nice coating lace. The aroma is grass hay earth, with a nice mineral edge. Overall, leafy is the best descriptor of the nose I can come up with. The taste is the same leafy dry grass straw of the nose, crisp cracker malt and the mineral in the finish. The palate is light bodied, with bright active carbonation, and a super crisp clean dry leafy mineral finish. Delicate, delicious.

Bottle bought somewhere I canít remember. Pours hazy cloudy golden with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity, spicy and slightly phenolic with crackers, dry soil, hay, pepper corns, pears, grapefruit rinds, mango, pineapple, star fruit, dry soil, lemon zest, coriander and hints of pine needles. Taste is bitter, fruity, spicy and slightly phenolic with crackers, dry soil, hay, pepper corns, coriander, grapefruit juice, grass, pine needles, mango, papaya, pineapple, star fruit lemon zest and hints of lemony soap. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and phenolic with crackers, grapefruit juice, dry soil, pepper corns, coriander, hay, lemon zest and hints of unripe tropical fruits. Very tasty and very refreshing!
