3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden-orange colour with a big shaving cream head that leaves some beautiful lace as it recedes. Spicy hop aroma with just a hint of skunk, but not enough to turn me off. Great herbal hop bitterness in the flavour, with a citric edge and a yeasty malt undertone. Finish is crisp and bitter. Pilsners rarely excite me, but this one really caught me by surprise.

Golden color with a off white head. Spicy, piney aromas. Light malt with a kick of hops. Robust finish that calls for more.

Oh my god! This is what pilsner is truly meant to be. Almost like a Denison’s Weisse (hey, list what you know), but much more hops and considerably more complex in the finish.

Looks almost Belgian. Foamy, cloudy, nice looking beer. Tasty. Kind of spicy. Dry and smooth at the same time, with a super aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 Bottle 330 ml
Appearance :Fine haze with bright amber color to it , good bright creamy top. Good lacing.
Nose:Sweet malty nose , grainy with light citric hop touch.
Flavour/Palate: Medium bodied with rich juicy malt and bitter green hop finish. Hint of apricot and mango all placed on soft sweet blanket. Alcohol is tertiary and serves as flavour blender with warming feel. Felt slightly empty .With Chrisoffel its hit and miss and 2007 shipment fairs less desirable than previous ones. Previous rating was 16/20 .
Ahhh that’s what I like in those beers, nice fresh aroma. Very natural. Healthy looking golden brew, nice head (hick lace), slightly cloudy. Wow what an intensity and freshness. Dabosk (Paul) is right great beer. It had the bite that matches well refreshing qualities. Neither to creamy nor watery nicely balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy bright yellow appearance, big foamy white head that lasts to the bottom of the glass. Nose is grassy with a firm sweet maltiness, a fruitiness that lends ot apricots and hints of nuts. Body is smooth and malty with a firm dry organic hoppiness in the finish. A top notch pilsner as far as that goes.

for some reason I remembered this beer as being cloudy, man was I wrong. nice bottle. pours beautiful golden with one of the best heads I’ve ever seen. big, fresh, hoppy, slightly bready aroma. huge herby hops. as the beer warms the malt shows through more to balance it out. excellent.
