3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Bottle, hazy orange with a large white. Fruity, eastery nose with gooseberries and lime, black pepper notes. Taste follows with light peach and pineapple, biscuit, spices. Quite soft mouthfeel, oily. It took me a short while to appreciate this, as I thought it a bit muddled at first, but it?s a quite rich and very tasty beer.

Bottle. Schieve Tabernak #4 Rye IPA. No mention of Le Trou de Diable on the label. Opaque orange with a very thick white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is grainy, piney and citrus fruits. Taste is spicy, grainy, grassy, malty and fruity (oranges and lemons). Very strong carbonation. Dry aftertaste. Balanced. Delicious. As a fan of anything rye-related I really enjoyed it. De La Senne continues to climb up my imaginary List of favourite breweries.
