COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
4 months bottle refermented with 100% Brussels Brettanomyces yeast. Amber colored with copper reflections, very fruity (pineapple and red fruits), sustained by hop flavors and complex notes of old leather. In spite of its 6,5%, its dry and bitter finish makes it a surprising thirst-quencher.

willisread (3939) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2018
Bottle from Craft Brewed. Pours a golden copper with a full 2 fingers of soapy foam that lingers. Wonderful Brett forward nose: tropical fruit, raspberry, earth and hay. Fruit-forward Brett strain. Clean and crisp. Peppercorn, hay all kinds of nice fruity esters. Great carbonation throughout. De La Senne can do no wrong.

Cerveza de estilo belga muy normalita, no destaca en nada aunque esta bien hecha, para ser Belga se le pide algo más

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Une très jolie bière ! Blonde dorée/ambrée. Nez légèrement lactique et sur le fruit fermenté (cidre/poiré). A la bouche un pétillant assez présent et un texture moyenne agréable. Des arômes de bitter belge rehaussées par les brets bien équilibrées. L’acidité est fondue et l’amertume présente. Bref un très joli équilibre ! Contrairement à ce qu’écrit Jybi, l’acide n’est pas l’ennemi du goût ! De nombreux chefs plébiscitent d’ailleurs les lambics ou les gueuzes et de nombreux terroirs de grands vins donnent beaucoup d’acidité. L’utilisation des agrumes est également très tendance. Mais ici l’acidité est modérée et maîtrisée et il ne faut pas adorer l’acide pour aimer cette bière. Les fans de saisons, par exemple, seront à coup sûr séduits par cette bière !

flying_pig (1695) - SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2018
330ml bottle from Wee Beer Shop, Glasgow (£2.70):
Quite a tarty & fresh beer that was sour in parts & quite funky throughout, plenty of Belgian yeast & spices showed from the start. There was pleasant hop bitterness from the middle of the beer on & some touches of citrus showed as well with the balance seeming okay but it's not a beer that I'd rush back to I'm afraid.

Poured at Shelton Festival, copper with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt and yeast. Medium body, dark fruit, wood, light dry finish, very good.

AssKicker (749) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - DEC 31, 2017
Couleur ambrée trouble. Mousse abondante et bien balèze. Nez à donf sur les bretts avec un côté cidreux pomme/poire épicé. Très sèche dès l'entrée de bouche.Pas de chichi en terme de saveurs, on retrouve les mêmes notes qu'au nez, brettée, épicée et pis c'est pas mal comme ça.

3.6
nathanvc (891) - Brugge, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2017
At Het Pand, Ghent. Pours hazy orange with a big, frothy, off-white head. The aroma contains yeast, bitter hops, citrus, orange, some spices, leather and pineapple. It tastes light, almost medium fruity/yeasty sour and light to medium spicy bitter. Dry, hoppy finish. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Surprisingly quenching.

3.3
