Poured from a 330ml bottle. Pours a hazy orangish yellow. There are abundant aromas of light citrus, fresh bright hops and grainy malt. The taste, though, is really eye-opening. Very fruity, with round peach and apricot notes. It does have a nice dry finish with a little bitter on the end. Excellent carbonation, medium bodied.

A: Bright orangy yellow. Very hazy and cloudy. short head.
S: Fairly plasticy, but lemon peel and grains under that.
T: Banana orangy, yeasty and wheaty. Most similar to Willeke by De Prael, Slightly bitter,
M: Exceptionally light and fluffy mouth feel . quite creamy with a plastic tang/zing
O: Quite nice. Next time I would try and be careful to not pour in the yeast which might improve it. A special flavor and very much enjoyed.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!
A - Poured a nice golden hue with a solid one finger white head that fades to leave good sticky thick lacing.
S - Aromas are nice apples, sweet malts, and gentle yeast/bready malts.
T - Taste is solid, like the nose just now the typical beglian spice notes come in to play. Faint corriander.
M - Mouthfeel is sold, nicely carbonated yet smooth.
O - Overall, a solid De La Senne offering. Very nice indeed.

"Zinne Bir." Brussels' People Ale. 5.8% ABV. .33l brown glass bottle served into a goblet. Reviewed from notes taken in Belgium in June 2010.
A: Pours a one finger very thin head of bad retention and hardly any cream. Body colour is a light murky gold.
Sm: Bittering hops reminiscient of a tame IPA. Very dry. My broken nose detects little else. All apologies, lads.
T: Caramelized malt body leads to a bittering hop climax. Finish is biteen bland and the open is uneven. Very simple for the style - surprisingly so. Not bold or exciting. Balanced decently and built alright, but even as a traditional beer in the style, it's rather boring.
Mf: Smooth and wet, with coarseness on the climax where the bittering hops emerge. Complements the flavours alright.
Dr: Relatively high ABV for more traditional examples of the style. Easy to drink, but priced a bit highly by local standards. This is a beer worth trying but don't expect much from it.

330ml bottle. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on jul´12. Foggy yellow appearance. White, small bubbled, froth. Close & creamy crown leaves copious rings. Floral & herbal aromas with bready hues & citric notes to the nose. Malty flavor at first sip followed by oily hops, ripe fruit touches & subtle grapefruit, wheaty notes too. Medium body. Soft to moderate carbonation. Oily texture & flavorful palate. Gentle fruit & sharp bitterness in the middle linger into the dry finish. Refreshing & very easy drinkable.
