Hazy yellow, with little to no head. Aroma of oranges, yeast, citrus. Taste is grapefruit, quite bitter, very refreshing, also some orange peels. Every bar in Belgium should have this on tap. Great stuff.

Little hazy blond to yellow beer, creamy dense white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: fruity, pineapple, citrus, some grapefruit, bit grassy. Smell is very promising! MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very bitter, right from the start, citrus, grassy, grapefruit, bit spicy. Aftetaste: bitter, grassy, dry, citrus, bit of exotic fruits, mainly pineapple.

Bière blonde servie comme une pils: très fraîche dans un verre droit, mais qui n’en a que les apparences. En bouche, je goûte un maltage subtil, très porté sur le froment : à la fois astringent et léger mais adouci par un orge malté soyeux. C’est doux sans être vraiment rond. Comme toujours chez De La Senne, c’est le houblonnage qui fait la différence. Et je retrouve bien une signature particulière: certainement un houblon noble très aromatique plutôt floral et qui tapisse toutes les papilles et tout le palais avec saveurs minérales, légèrement fruité asseez sèches, avec une levure légèrement argileuse. Seul bémol, cette sensation de farineux en arrière goût. Bière super savoureuse à boire ad libidum.

Draft at Pinpon. Served horrible , but still ... Pours hazy blonde , small white head . Smell is malty . Taste is bitter , malty . Bit organic, reminds a bit of taras bulba . Aftertaste is bitter ( hops ) , rather sharp . Nice ! shame a good beer like this is waisted to a buisness that does not treat it with the respect it deserves ...

2 x 250 ml. draft @ Pin Pon. Great drawings for the beers as expected from De La Senne. Hazy milky golden, small white head. Nose is faint but it was also served way too cold in my opinion, light hop flowers, grass,… De La Senne hop-profile but quite light with touch grains. Taste is grainy upfront, substantial body, leading into De La Senne grassy hops, hop flowers, hay, nicely bitter, very bitter zest peel. Grainy body. Taste like a substantial pilsner chockfull of De La Senne hops. All I can say delicious. @ 2 € for a glass (more or less standard prize for a pale lager in Belgium), I wish that every bar sold this or a beer similar to this one. This is just a great fix of hops.

bartlebier (2210) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Draught pours@PinPon, Bxl 08&09/2014. Excellent sessioner between Pils and blond ale, with a great look, humbler than usual flowery/pollen yeast profile, without compromising aromatic, multi-layered EU hop bitterness and zest. Pilsner malts lay a near-crisp foundation for some BE ale yeasts to perch on, infusing it with some gentle floral aromatics. Near-watery, i.e. runny without a backbone, this excellent paralympic Pilsners carries a certain "void" in the middle of its taste profile, the sacrifice to BE house ale sessionability (cf. Band of Brothers). Sort of a baby brother to fully matured Taras Boulba. Easy, refreshing and pleasurable new style drinking, especially in its Marolles environment.

Swaroga (1582) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Z kranu w browarze De La Senne. Piwo jest mętne o kolorze żółtym. Wodniste i mało gazowane. Piwo jest orzeżwiajāce i dobrze chmielone. Nuty cytrusowe i ziarniste. Ogólnie łatwe w piciu o średnio trwałym posmaku.

sebletitje (7027) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2014
Draft. Dorée sur un léger trouble, col blanc épais. Arôme est houblonné, fruité dans un style très noble rappelant houblons belges et allemands. Ce dernier est non sans rappeler le houblon frais en sac agrémenté d’effluves de malt pils-cara. Palais est léger sur une base bien pils. Ici on est a mille lieu des pils industrielles. Palais sec, fruité amer venant des houblons, un léger fleuri portant sur des houblons nobles. Le tout conserve une signature typique de DLS surtout au niveau de la base levure et de l’amertume. La levure confère une certaine épaisseur de bouche ponctuée de grains. Pour 2€ (prix censé augmenter une fois cette période prix cassés passée) on en redemande. Force est encore d’admettre que le dessin de JS Govaerts est parfait.
