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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy straw colored pour. Foamy, small, white head. Little bit of lacing. Big sour aroma that drowns everything else out. But there is some hints of malt and hops. Taste is a bit sweeter with some yeast notes, bitterness, and a citrusy note. Not too bad once you get past the aroma that doesn’t seem to fit.

Bottle at Nuetnigenough. Aroma is citrus and resinous hops, bit stinky. Taste is good, feels a bit heavy, but lots of yeastiness, some citrus. Bitterness at end. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottles, Geers, bb? (brewed 05/2014). A crooked altar provides an oblique metaphor for what you would imagine a slanted transatlantic collaboration between two idiosyncratically Romance and cryptocatholic anarchist breweries would look like: the Devils’s Hole has done a great and fruity number on the stubborn series of Belgian ales De la Senne has been putting out lately: more fresh peach and some pink grapefruit in the nose, accompanying that house yeast strain’s earthy, aniseed-infused chalkiness. Pours rather cloudy, soft milkshake, with ample protein. Not getting much malt spice from the added rye, in fact the middle part is a bit thin, but pleasantly lush and soggy. Somehow a milk rice, transparent sake quality to the palate. Glad to have bought a few to revisit, as this beer’s unfocused subtlety kindles the imagination as much as its crooked metaphor.

Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Det mest IPA-lika jag druckigt från de la Senne. Fruktig, gräsig, kryddig och blommig med tallskott i täten och rejäl beska. Relativt torr och med rena fina smaker och pigg fräsch humle. Lite krämig munkänsla. Inte mycket belgostuk på denna IPA. Riktgt gott.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Mi Orge Mi Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours clear strong golden yellow with a flat head. Smell has belgian yeast, some fruity and spicy notes. Starts very spicy, perfumey, bitter hoppy with some herbal notes as well as some yeast. Finish has some perfume, lots of herbs, spices and belgian yeast. Unfortunately not my kind of style...

Pours a a hazy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. The smell is fruit, spice, yeast and grass. the taste is as it smells with a dry hoppy finish. The body is light+ with active yet fine carbonation. Nice brew.

Tap, PP DuPont. Hazy bright lemon yellow. Nice dry bitter citrusy and grassy aroma, with some meadow hay. Tastes very similar, with perhaps some light fruit sneaking in, with a dry grassy/earthy finish. Lighter soft almost creamy body. I thought this was stellar.
