Bottle from Delices and Caprices. Lovely De La Senne aroma, Belgian yeastiness, lightly herbal, citrus in the way that XX Bitter is. Taste is great, fruity, peach, little bit of citrus, herbal crispness, bitter finish. Light creaminess.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a big, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some light notes of tartness, wheat and pale malts, hints of fruits, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty solid beer for the style.

bvc (1196) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2014
33cl bottle. Lightly hazed golden yellow with nice bright marangue white head that settles down and leaves some lacing. Light sweetness wrapped with hay, minerality, bit of bubblegum and faint lemon. Light sweetness up front, peppery hay in the middle finishes with dance between myer lemon, white pepper and hay. Very nice and would love more.

Bière blanche avec une robe dorée et un col épais qui offre un profil un peu balourd à cause de ce froment malté. Pourtant, c’est un nez classique de chez DLS qui s’offre aux narines avec une amertume citronné légère, un pointe de biscuit, un malt légèrement moelleux. Ce qui frappe la bouche c’est le palais visqueux, mi-gras, mi-doux à l’abord lacté apporté par le froment qui tombe un peu comme ça sur l’estomac. Vraiment chez DLS on était habitué à plus de subtilité. Ce n’est que sur la fin qu’on retrouve cette amertume plus classique de DLS qui envahit la bouche sur une belle longueur, légèrement minérale en laissant la langue rêche. C’est dommage, mais on sent l’assemblage. Manque d’originalité...
