Superbe robe dorée, fine mousse, légèrement crémeuse. Nez superbe de puissance et de complexité, sur les fruits acidulés, les groseilles vertes, les levures, le houblon, les agrumes, pointe de cerise acidulée et une légère note boisée. Bouche à l'attaque tendue, acidulée, fine bulle, concentration, grande longueur et finale serrée d'une rare élégance. Une bière un cran au dessus de la bruxellensis, superbe de complexité et de longueur.
PowY (1043) - AUSTRIA - OCT 18, 2017
750 ml bottle, shared by Saeglopur, many thanks. Pours a lightly hazy dark golden with a white head. The aroma is lightly fruity with apples and pears and hints of citric fruits along with some brett and honey. Medium to medium-full body with a light sweetness and a light bitterness - well balanced. The flavor is again fruity with apples, plums, apricots, tart fruits, some honey and light woody notes (quite reluctant), grapes. Finishes lightly woody and dry. Overall very smooth and balanced with hidden but nice barrel notes.

Tastes similar, with some more grass, slight vanilla.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a quite lively carbonation.
Finishes medium dry, wooden, Bretty, fruity, a bit sweet, with citrus, some stone fruits
Tasty. Very fresh and balanced to drink, the barrel isn't that obvious, but provides some smooth wooden note. Overall it is rounder than the regular version. Great stuff, while not my favourite De la Senne.
Bottle. Nuetnigenough, Brussels. Hazed, pale amber. Decent head of dense, lasting, white foam. Nose has soft brett. Twangy vine fruits. Red wine dregs. Some chewy toffee. A little floral herb. Taste is lightly tart, vinous, and estery sweet. A little dryness. Some woody, oaky bitterness. Medium body. Massaging carbonation. Twang of brett and wine barrel to finish. Nicely rounded, with way more to come when the brett kicks in fully. Going to try and find a couple of these to stick in the cellar. gyllenbock (9878) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2017
At SBWF 2017. A bit hazy dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, some fruit, brett and light oak. The same in the taste, also some grass. Balanced and nicely drinkable.
