July 2014: 330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8%. 18.30 degrees P. Cloudy pale golden colour, moderate white head. Strong aroma of spicy Belgian ale yeast, peppery and some fruity notes. Peppery and hoppy flavour (49 IBU), not too sweet, not too dry - well balanced. Very good - a beer I’ll have again.

Had on tap at Glory Beer Bar & Kitchen in Philadelphia. It was an enjoyable tripel, but did not stand out to me as one of my favorites in the style.

Best beer I have had from la senne easy. Hazy straw yellow with a huge white head. Banana and general fruit esters lead the nose with decent floral hops, belgian yeast, and grains. Taste is much the same, but has some booze on the back end that is stronger than expected, still the ester-hop interaction is what makes this beer tick. Feel is soft, scary drinkable, smooth and yeasty.

De 32go. En copa Grimbergen. Jugando a Medieval. Con papas fritas de La Real (Hipercor). Seca y con poco sabor. El toque a lúpulo no le aporta mucho, ni aromaticamente ni en boca. Simplemente unas notas vegetales anodinas y apagadas. Prefiero una tripel clásica

Con un dedo de espuma de buena retención. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación alta. Aroma lupulado y cítrico. En boca es una cerveza es muy agradable al ser ligeramente dulce con notas especiadas y un retrogusto amargo equilibrado.

L- Mid amber, pours with large head- holds well 5mins later.
S- Quite verdant, fresh trees.
T- Smell follows on, pungent (ABV) but fresh, zesty hops notes, into zingy finish.
F- Feels somewhat like a triple, but it's bright and piquant, so it stays interesting,
O- Very nice indeed. I wish I had a couple more to consider at greater length. Pungent and heavy, yet very balanced and refined in the finish < I think that's why I'm enjoying this ;ast beer of the night so unexpectedly much. I should, and would happily buy this again, and perhaps give it a little more care and time next time.
330ml bottle. Bought from Bacchanalia Mill Road Cambridge. 330ml bottle.

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed light golden pour with massive fluffy white head. Lasts an eternity... crazy lacing. Sediment at the end of the pour.

S: Toasted grains... yeasty esters, fruit, light citrus, banana, and clove.

T.F: Semi-sweet and spicy. Toasty malts... Belgian sugars and yeast... fruit... cloves and nutmeg. Spicy hops. Over-ripened pear and apple peel. Prickly carbonation.

O: A solid tripel... not one of the very best but well above average. Easy drinking and tasty.

Pours a clouded yellow golden color with a bigger, froth head.

Smells of older leaves, rich wheat and lighter citrus.

Has a well nuanced, slightly effervescent carbonation with a smoother, medium body.

Tastes of lime zest, caramel and soft wheat among lighter toffee. Turns a tad dryer then with a mineralic carbonation peak to it, coated by smooth, slightly. Finishes malty, with a short bitter hop appearance, more toffee and gentle yeast.

Solid, dry Tripel with a pleasant mouthfeel to it, allowing for a nice hops and malts interplay.

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.
