Robe dorée, mousse peu abondante. Nez puissant sur le houblon frais, le gingembre, le citron vert, l’herbe fraîche, les fleurs. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, rétro d’agrumes confits, longue finale acidulée sur l’amertume du pamplemousse rose. Une superbe bière ultra raffraîchissante. Un régal. hirigalzkar (3292) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2016
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. UXO (1896) - CANADA - SEP 21, 2016
Appearance: hazy straw with three fingers (and growing!) of fluffy white head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon zest, pale malt, light horseblankety funk. (8/10) Taste: mild sweet, moderate bitter, light funk. (8/10) Medium-light body, lively carbonation, crisp dry and lightly funky bitter finish. (4/5)
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) HULK777 (646) - - NOV 23, 2016
Aroma is grassy, floral, full of grain and herbs. Taste is grass, herbs, light bread, yeast, and buttery waffles. This beverage is a perfect balanced between fruit, bitter, and deeper notes - tasty, still fresh! Serapac (564) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle from Malting Pot. Fully clouded orange with rich white head. Aroma, pineapple, pine needles. Quite full body. Taste funkily bitter-sour, hints of apricots. Nice hoppy finish. Well done.
