~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!

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.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small frothy white head that covers the top. Aroma of spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, orange peel, wheat and bready malts. Taste is spicy Belgian cloves, pepper,, orange zest and a nice smooth lingering bitterness. Overall a nice smooth balanced BPA.

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.

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.
