czar (5568) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2015
(33cl from de la senne - labelled as #2) pour cloudy very pale golden with a tall off-white head showing good retention and lacing. healthy yeast, sulfur, very grassy and herbaceous, citrus, grapefruit, pine; pils and pale spicy and bready maltiness, plenty of other spices. average carbonation, light body - oily and creamy mouthfeel, assertive grassy-spicy-peppery finish. seems a lot more belgian than the version brewed at tdd - perhaps an authentic yeast combined to a more herbaceous hop varietal. nice offering!

cpetrone84 (1678) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pour is dark amber with a tight white head. Nose is earthy and grainy with a moderate peppery spice, leathery brett, nice farmhouse notes. Flavor is a bit thinner, dry finish, somewhat malty, nice grain and farmhouse notes. Peppery in back, nice tang. Light body soft carb, easy drink.

PotjeBier (1974) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle @ home. Golden to orange color, cloudy. Big, dense white head with retention throughout. Aroma’s: refereshing, fresh hops, citrus, fruity hops. Retronasal there’s additionally resin and citrus. Flavor is moderate bitter, but still rather mild. Light to medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Finishes with a long bitter flavor. Nice!

sebletitje (7498) - 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.

Bontus (685) - Flanders, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle, Geers. Pours hazy yellow / dark yellow. Big white head. Spicy nose, surely coriander. Also has this tangy bread aroma, thought it was wheat at first, but apparently rye. Good flavor balance, good palate.

Benzai (9928) - 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.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head of moderate size. The aroma has some malty, fruity sweetness and a faint spiced touch. Quite straight forward, but well done. The flavor has a pleasant bitterness, grass, pine cones and fruityness, as well as some sugary hints without being sweetish. Rather dry actually, nicely carbonated and full-bodied. Mostly bitter in the end. A nice one for sure, wouldn’t mind drinking more of it. 120623
