alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2010
33cl Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Markings indicate Best before June 2010. Very ’saison’/farmhouse ale aroma of earthy straw and grassy (as in a field of wild grass, not like clippings or anything - really wonderful) yeast. Taste is slight mineral-ness and a floral hoppiness that isn’t that pronounced at all in the nose, but is really well done with the high carbonation. A little peppery yeast in the dry (dry like it was never there, but you wish it would be some more) bitter finish, which shows a touch of oily sweetness as it warms. Awesome easy-drinking, every-day beer. Jealous of the folks that can make it that.

Buona!! una versione più luppolata e corposa della taras boulba... cmq piuttosto beverina e rinfrescante..

trevor211 (1398) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Thanks to luttonm for sharing this bottle - brought back from a bottle shop in Amsterdam. Pours a light honey amber with a small head. Super citrusy aroma - tons of hops for a Belgian ale. Some yeast, but this one is dominated by hops. Dry as a bone, but with a significant amount of depth. Really grassy flavor, a bit harsh on the bitter end. Certainly worth a try.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2009
750 ml bottle - another nice pick up at John’s Market in Portland; clear light gold with 2" eggy white head fading slowly; sweet, grassy aromas of white sugar, lemons, pine, maybe a bit of brett, pepper and apricots; definitely has a sweet, musky quality to it; mild yeasty spice with citrus fruits and dry cheese; light texture and soft carbonation that sits nicely on your tongue; doesn’t hit you on the head with complexity or over the top spice profile, but is rather a subtle, mildly fruit and a damn smooth belgian ale; pine, grass and apricots; very nice; will have to pick up some of the other De la Senne offerings next time down south
