Had this draft at Eetkaffee Multatuli, Gent, Sunday 18th October 2015. Pours yellow/gold in colour with a white head, it’s a little bit hazy. A touch sweet on the nose some spice but also a bit of honey. Good malty backbone, fruity, dry on the finish. Nothing so exciting but it’s pretty decent. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3

Hamirubi (579) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2015
Draught at De Stokerij, Ghent (16 IX 2015). Good looking blond beer with decent collar, brewed for De Stokerij and Multatuli, both in Ghent. The 8.0 alcohol percentage is a surprise, for this light bodied premium-lager-tasting beer is a real malty quencher. The nose is nothing special, and even the taste does not really feel complex. The grains add a malty sweetness to the beer, which also has a long lasting sharp bitterness. This bitter finish is the beer’s trump card. Yet I had different expectations for this brew.

Tasted at De Stokerij, one of only two establisments (both in Ghent and both from the same owner) who sell this; surprised to learn it isn’t brewed anymore, as I had this only a couple of months ago. I will go back soon to ask the staff there where it is brewed now, and then perhaps a new entry should be made for it here. Anyway: deep golden blond, hazy beer with stable, creamy, snow white head and an aroma of grapefruit, banana, grassy hops, bitter honey; dry apple-fruity onset, smooth, some yeastiness, pretty strong hop bitterishness in the finish, a bit tonic water-like, medium long. Nothing spectacular, but perfectly fit to quench the thirst while you’re waiting for your food on a summer afternoon in either of the two establishments.

77ships (9277) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2013
Draft sample @ Eetkaffee Multatuli in Gent. Clear golden & white head. Nose is sugary, lots of esters, malty, slightly floral. Taste is esters, slightly floral, malty, BE yeast, sugary, zest, faint grass in the back. Easy to drink & dry. Pretty simple, well-done but I expected more character from De La Senne honestly, this tastes very general. It is pretty likely that they were just working on commission here. Still more than solid enough brew.
