i cant get enough de la senne beer right now, they have come up as one of my favorites and its cool to find a few of their beers around lately, this one is a classic tripel type, golden and almost perfectly clear from the tap, light in color for what it is, thick and wispy white head, two inches worth, and lasting. it smells floral and spicy, lots of belgian yeast here, new pennies in a sweaty palm, green pears, green plantain, soft citrus, black peppercorns, and some honey sweetness from the malt, really subtle compared to others, unique though, different than their yeast in other beers, i like it a lot. the flavor is as good as the nose, less fruity and more spicy, balanced by quite a bit of honey and cakey sweetness in the grain, less body than most of these have though, relatively simple here, its about the yeast, which does have a european floral hop thing in the finish, but its well behind the esters of the yeast. mild clove and allspice and dry green tea, explosive carbonation and a relaxed medium body, no sign of its alcohol strength at all and lots of minerals at the end. a slightly different take on the stye in terms of flavors, but really well refined like all the de la senne stuff. i love these guys!

Draft at The Sovereign in DC.

Golden body, light haze with a white head that leaves copious lacing on the wine glass. Floral and earthy aromas. Fruity, yeasty, ester flavors. Absolutely delicious. It’s wonderful to drink fresh De La Senne beers on this side of the pond. Kudos to The Sovereign.

Aroma is all hops, citrus and gassy.

Taste follows suits, uber hoppy mixed with a sharp citrus kick.

Feel is definitely alcohol, and leaves a nice warming sensation down the gullet.

This one just lacks something for me, a hoppy tripel, good but not great.

light golden colour with a slight haze, 1 finger white head with mainly fine bubbles
aroma begins herbal like Austrian Almdudler. later also some pale malt sweetness comes through, no graininess; I do not get the typical interplay of clove and fruity esters typical for traditional tripels, well they call it hoppy tripel. retronasal there is more herbal notes
malt is very subdued in the taste and provides just a little balance to the hoppy onslaught. There is a fair amount of bitterness but it is a rather clean bittereness; it lingers but does not build, leaving you for wanting more.
light body for such a high alcohol beer but not watery in any way. there is sugar used as it is the tradition in tripels but it does not show in any off flavors (green apples!) but just the slim body
Dangerously drinkable hoppy tripel. Very well done!

33cl bottle pourchased in a small beer store in Northern France, poured into a mug.

Pours a three inches head foamy head fading quickly.

Smells very much Belgian yeast and taste the same. Hints of apricots, peaches.

Overall a good tripel. Not a masterpiece, not world class but worthy of a sip. Have to mention it wasn't all that expensive and I assume fairly available in Brussels.

Once again, the eradication of the Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody enables me to conduct a modest horizontal, this time with the beers of Brasserie de la Senne.

From the bottle: "Ale Hand Crafted & Refermented in the Bottle".

I could see some lees on the punt, so once I had Pop!ped the cap, I gave it a VERY gentle pour. Once a sufficient amount had been decanted, an in-glass swirl raised a finger of foamy, eggshell-white head with decent retention that slowly fell to wisps. Color was Amber to Deep Amber-Light-Copper (SRM = > 9, < 13) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was very fruity, and slightly tart, especially with notes of apricot, but also with scents of peach, pear, apples, grapes and a light breadiness. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but on the approach. The taste was less sweet than the nose had suggested, but instead, it was biscuity with a very peach-like presence. It was very evocative of peach cobbler! I found it to be very tasty and quite unexpected. Finish was semi-dry, evidence of the yeast having really done its job.

Tripels, primarily, should be zesty. That doesn't necessarily mean more hops. In my book, Jambe De Bois leans too heavily on hops. I might Have again, but not with food.

2/20/17 Re-tasting and re-pairing with Indian food. The carbonation helped with the variety. The food was so spicy that I didn't notice the hops. Solution ! Slight up-rating Overall.
