Bottle, thanks GT2, gold pour, white head, nose and taste are funky, grassy, barnyard

>> Taras Runa, bottling date says 6/2/2014 so assuming this is about to be 1 year old. Perhaps there is only one bottled batch of this beer? Pours full hazy glowing white straw with billowing white foam. Rocky, sheen, fisheye head with infinite retention and mountains of lacing. Nose is intoxicating Meyer lemon, fresh clothes, blood orange zest, pomelo, white sugar, faint squashy dry hop character. Taste is perfect De la Senne on the money: ridiculous pilsner crackery malt backbone with wicked grassy hops atop a dry as hell finish giving this beer that elusive profile of perfect APA/Saison hybrid that seemingly only Hill Farmstead and Tired Hands have been able to master in the US. Ultra crisp and so refreshing. This a beer to drink by the pitcher. As Budweiser taught us, Beer is for drinking, not for dissecting. So Ima quit now and chug this.

_angst_ (3214) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle bought @ Etre. Pours hazy milky glowing yellow with a frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is rustic, tiny malty and tiny fruity with crackers, cereal, grapefruit juice, fresh air, minerals, moist grass, dry soil, mango and lemon zest. Taste is bitter, tiny fruity and herbal with crackers, honey, grapefruit juice, mango, papaya, dry soil, hay, minerals and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, slightly astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, grapefruit juice, unripe mango, honey, dry soil, minerals, hay and lemon zest. Another dead solid crushable De La Senne beer!

Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from trade. It pours a hazy straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is freshly cut grass, grains, grapefruit and citrus peel. Aroma is medium sweet and lightly crisp bitter and dry. Notes of citrus peel, ripe apricots, yeast, grapefruit. Finishes lightly dry and citrusy. Overall, ok Belgian hoppy pale

Ottimo esperimento di belgian ale luppolata, con note leggermente fruttate, floreali, decisa presenza di lieviti, finale amaro e abbondante.

Mortlach (1052) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle @Ma che siete venuti a fŕ (Rome). Dorata pallida, lievemente torbida, bel cappello di schiuma bianca, abbondante e persistente. Al naso note floreali, citriche, lime, pane, lieviti e spezie. In bocca č di facile beva, forse un po’ monodimensionale, manca di complessitŕ, secca nel finale. Corpo esile, carbonazione media. Non certo la miglior birra di De la Senne.

Habanero (2872) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy, pale golden with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon zest, yeast and cramel notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and decent bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice and hoppy Belgian.

Fin (7915) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at Cafe Rose Red, Bruges, Belgium, Saturday 18th October 2014. It pours the colour of a battery hen egg yolk, with large sticky white head atop. Wonderful soft silky carbonation, quikly runs to dry. A light lemon vein throughout. Hoppy but not in a big bolshy way. Very good, hoppy burps aplenty. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
