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.

Borresteijn (5472) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning, labeled as Schieve Tabarnak #2, ABV 6.3%. Slightly hazy deep golden colour, white head. Aroma of yeast, some alcohol, malts, light fruity, grassy hops, reminds me of a good tripel. Flavour is medium sweet, light floral, malty, yeasty, light fruity, some honey, firm grassy bitter finish with some alcohol bite. Medium-bodied. Good.

erickok (4322) - 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)
