Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a thick white head. Sweet, yeasty arom with a small frutiness (strawberries, banana) and light spiciness. Hoppy and dry with a small strawberry-like tartness. A bit doughy. Long bitter finish. Typical De la Senne beer - highly drinkable and also a bit fun and challenging. martythesmarty (336) - SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2016

An excellent Belgian Pale - crisp, bone dry, and lightly funky. Definitely reminiscent of the other three or four Brasserie De La Senne beers I’ve had. I was going to say that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of Trou du Diable character coming through here, but then that got me thinking about what (if any) defining characteristics that brewery has, and all I could come up with was: excellence. I must have had nearly twenty of their beers by now, and I don’t think I’ve rated a single one under 7/10, and they’ve reached 9/10. In particular, they excel at Belgian styles, making this collaboration particularly apt. Really good, and the rude swear word name only makes me like it more. (16/20)
