3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I didn’t put this in my beer cellar list, so I’m not sure when I got it. If I had, I’d have cracked a low-alcohol hoppy beer much sooner. Pour is just noticeably darker than the usual golden Belgian pale lager. Lots of floaty bits, I’m guessing hop bits rather than yeast? Aroma is nice, but it’s nice for a sweet Belgian pale, nit much trace of hop. But then there’s the taste. It is bitter as advertised, just the peppery noble hop bitterness. Backed by a dryly fermented malt that just gives this the nice feel of a beer. Something your Bud-drinking uncle might enjoy if he gets curious about those funny looking beers you have.

Blonde très trouble. Amertume "pamplemousse", bien houblonnée. On ne sait pas se tromper sur son origine, la Brasserie de la Senne!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy, extremely light yellow with a white head. The nose is clean, a bit sharp, tart apple, and banana. Mouthfeel is pretty full for the appearance. Some Belgian yeast, no real spice to speak of, and very earthy.

Yellow clear pour from bottle. Bitter and floral taste. A decent Belgium and easy drinking but wouldn't buy it again. Good summer beer

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pale yellow colour with medium white frothy head. The aroma lacks intensity: some yeast and spice. The flavour is much better, with lots of Belgian Yeast as expected, citrusy notes, and a soft bitter backing. Sometimes reminds lambic beers or some Farmhouse IPAs. Medium body, average carbonation. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a hazy yellow, couple of fingers of head. That *still* sounds amusing. Aroma is hops, citrus, with floral, lemony and orangey notes. Taste is similar: kinda TCP-ish hoppy, citrusy/lemony kick. Very definitely from De La Seinne. Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation. It’s decent and drinkable, but that’s it: from the guys who do Zinnebir, I’d expected more.
