Bruxellensis Reserva (ABV 6.5%) from Brasserie de la Senne in Brussels is their Bruxellensis -- an unfiltered pale ale made with 100% local Brussels Brettanomyces yeast – barrel-aged for 6 months on Nuits-Saint-Georges wine barrels, adding a vinous element to the base beer's palate.

It pours a hazy orange with a puffy white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, leather, earth, spice, and oak. Taste is complex and balanced, with tart grapefruit, herbal hops, oak, minimal sweetness, and the Brettanomyces funkiness typical of the brewery's output. A dry, quenching, and very drinkable ale.

Ratebeer.com rating: 99 (out of 100)! 25.4 oz capped bottle.

La Brasserie de la Senne or De Zennebrouwerij is named for the river Zenne which flows through Brussels, where the brewery is located. Founded by Bernard Leboucq and Yvan De Baets, the brewery has a reputation for brewing fine ales and "frustratingly rare blends" that often include lambic from the nearby Cantillon Brewery.

Leboucq and De Baets do everything themselves, using traditional methods. The beers are neither filtered nor pasteurized, and no additives are used. Their philosophy is to brew beers that are characterful, but not necessarily strong. With an annual production of 1,800 hectoliters, the demand for the beers currently exceeds production capacity.
