This is the second beer we’ve featured from Brasserie De la Senne in Brussels. It is a lovely hazy golden coloured pale ale, with a snow white head. As the label suggests, there is a generous inclusion of hops giving a nose full of floral and citrus aromas.
The taste is of crisp grainy malt, a little tropical fruit sweetness and a pleasant peppery bitterness that carries through the beer. Good carbonation adds to the dry hop ‘prickle’ in the mouth and on the tongue.
It is a most sessionable hop-forward pale ale. Perfect for a warm afternoon, and a great start to this months beer flight.
About the brewery: The brewers at De la Senne favour the lower-alcohol style beers with a tendancy for higher levels of bitterness; which is something of a rarity for Belgium. All their beers are wonderful to drink, with the bonus of being quite sessionable!
