Brewed in collaboration with Armand Debelder and Frank Boon at De Proef, essentially a recreating of the original Bohemian Pilsener.

Has a decent, froth head, with a pale golden, slightly cloudy color. Nose is defined by a moldy funkiness with typical lager qualities, wooden, toasty malts with bitter hops and hints of straw. Has an enjoyable, gentle bitterness to it, which goes well along with straw, white bread malts and a funky, brett defined leather note. Hops interact in an interesting fashion with the earthy malts, on which the funkiness settles. Unfortunately those different flavors don’t seem to come together too well until the very finish, in which rich, earthy malts become the most recognizable flavor. Ends a little watery, with a very late hops impact, which tastes a bit ankward because of the added acidity.

Een van de slechtste bieren die ik ooit geprobeerd heb. Echt een tegenvaller van formaat.

Clear yellow with lacing white foam head. Aroma is clearly barley dominated, some floral/wheat tones. Crisp pilsener taste, some light bitterness. Short barley aftertaste. (Velp 201407)

Moravius (491) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Flasche (33 cl) im Versand von Belgianbeerz.com. - Laut RAB ist dies ein „tschechisches Pilsener“ aus Belgien? Das Etikett erwähnt nichts dergleichen ... - Goldgelb mit leichtem Grünstich, schwach trüb. - In der Nase appetitlicher, leicht zitroniger Aromahopfen, eher belgischer als böhmischer Natur, schlank und leicht hopfenwürzig. - Der Antrunk ist schlank und trocken, mit unverkennbar belgischem Hopfen, Zitronenschale, Kräutern und Gras und einer leicht metallischen Note. Zart süßliches Malz, etwas Honig, ein Hauch von Walnuß. Dominierend ist und bleibt aber der kräftig herbe Aromahopfen. Mild rezent, schlank, trocken. Gut bitterer, sehr trockener Abgang; ausdauernder bitterer Nachtrunk. - Unverkennbar belgisch, nicht böhmisch; dennoch ein sehr gut gehopftes, herbes, erfrischend schlankes Bier ohne die oft zu süße Fruchtigkeit seiner obergärigen Landsleute. Sehr empfehlenswert. Aber warum sind die Flaschen so klein?

@3 Fonteinen Restaurant - hazy bright golden blond beer with a long lasting white foam; decent aromatic hoppiness; pretty grassy; a good malt body; quite rich and tasty; a fair bitterness, fizzy finish with long hoppy corny and grassy aftertaste and a metallic touch though

Bopttle from the brewery shop. Pale lager, hoppy, but more flowers than bitterness, though it creeps in and lasts long. A lovely lager.

tom10101 (2783) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy golden with a medium diminishing white head and some lacing. Aroma is grassy with pils malt, honeyed notes and very light skunky notes. Taste is grainy with an important fresh grass presence, honeyed malt and floral/herbal finish. Light body. Lively carbonation (maybe even a tad too much). Crisp and clean. Not bad at all. Quite refreshing and quenching. Easily drinkable.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, straw, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Czech pilsner style. All around good robustness and balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
