short pour into tulip.

Pours a orange bordering on amber with a finger of head. smells of grassy, herbal and citrus notes.

taste is bitter marmalade and citrus with a fairly herbaceous note. as if you took a pale ale and put more emphasis on the earthy notes. lightly phenolic + fruity from the yeast.

finishes dry with medium body and high cabronation.

this is the most "amercian" beer I've had from De La Senne despite using only English hops.

On-tap at Novare Res Bier Cafe

Poured a clear dark golden color with a hint of red, and a small frothy head. The smell was the most unique aspect of the beer, combining a fruity, estery, yeastiness with a distinct bubblegum-type aroma. I could have left my nose in the glass all afternoon. The taste is a bit more fruity, with complex belgian yeast notes, and a mild hop presence. The bubblegum is still there, but a bit less powerful. The mouthfeel is chewy and well carbonated. Overall, a unique brew that I would drink over and over again.

On draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas.

The beer is a dirty, hazy yellow color with a massive, white, soapy head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma brings yeast, banana, clove, light spice, slightly sweet malt. The flavor is a tad sharp with a nice bite from the hop character, finishing with a lingering malty sweetness. Thin and light, this beer is easy to drink. Complex, especially considering the 4% abv. Tasty beer, I would have this again.

Ring lace after every sip. Some spots in between. Moderate head that shrinks to rim bubbles. The color is approaching polished copper.

Caramel aroma, but it's not sweet.

Starts with a mild pale malt sweetness, but slowly, a black pepper hop flavor takes over. The finish becomes quite bitter. Long aftertaste. Decent body with neutral carbonation.

On tap at ChurchKey in DC. From notes.

A - Poured cloudy and light golden with two fingers of white creamy head. Good lace rings and a film of retention.

S - Nice hops, Belgian yeast, orange. Nice.

T - Orange, nice intense hop profile, yeasty and grassy.

M - Good carbonation, light body, zippy finish with orange.

O/D - Pleasant stuff. Designed to be light but it has a nice flavour and the balance of the yeasty/Belgian and hop balance is cool.
