Coucou
Puissant

Bottled 20SEP22, Best Before 20SEP24. “Dry-hopped quad”? For all intents and purposes this is a sweet, hoppy Tripel/BDSA, or at least something that resembles that particular description.

Good looking, fluffy white head with a lightly hazed golden body.

The nose offers a sweetish, hoppy nose. Tastes deliver some soapy notes, as the hop forward beer threatens a bit at the beginning. However, this gives way to a significant, sweeping sweetness. Paradoxically there is also a lot of bitter, orange marmalade in there too.

In the end I have no idea why this is labeled as a “Quad” of any description, it really has nothing in common with any “Quad” I’ve ever seen in my life (perhaps with the exception of the sweet side of things).

The mouthfeel is light, and the ABV is absolutely nowhere to be seen. At this level one might be expecting a big, viscous beer but that’s not present either.

Another Senne beer that defies simple description but is quirkily delicious. Very drinkable in sensible quantities, nevertheless I bet it would it catch up with you VERY quickly.

Truthfully this is closer to a Belgian IPA than anything else, although it tips over into Tripel territory for me and then comes out as some kind of hoppy, BSPA. I know not much of that makes sense, but there you are!

Delicious, and a long time since I’ve had something as unique as this is. Another great beer from De La Senne.
