3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from brewpub. Orange and enthusiastic champagne-like effervescence with a yeasty haze. Nice hopfen aroma, smells like a Belgian beer, thinking Chouffe Houblon. Dry and inviting. Very tasty and easy going. Super drinkable, refreshing, and thirst-quenching. Highly carbonated Belgianlike mouthfeel. Very nice hoppy dry herbal extraction flavors. Enjoyable!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I like this. Great refreshment! Poured with a huge, foamy, frothy, short lived, off white head and no lace. Color is clear at first with both big and small bubble trails then turns a hazy amber. Aroma is hop, yeast, malt. Flavor is slightly malt sweet, some hop, and a bit of tang from CO2. Body itself is ok, but the carbonation is excellent. Finish is like flavor and slowly tapers off. Session beer, but beware serious burpage.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Pivonka, Hradec Kralove. Pours hazy golden with a big frothy white head. Strange sweet aroma, maybe a touch of sweet anis and sweet grapes. Taste is sweet and full of grapes, and an intriging taste of salty liquorice towards the end. Oily mouthfeel. No bitterness here, so it ends up rather one-dimensional, but a good experiment.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
31/10 0.33 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured golden body with medium sized head. Interesting lemony aroma, relatively similar to radlers for sweetness. Very sweet honey malt flavor, with some lemony radler again. Not like those awful artificial radlers, just better ones. Maybe it feels so because of the different yeast. Long way too sweet finish which ruins the impression a bit, cloying in the way that isn’t the best! I didn’t felt any hops nowhere.Very strange beer, not totally bad I must admit, but didn’t like it’s sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pivovarsky Klub in Prague, shared with heavy.
Medium sized white head that went away relatively fast. Slightly golden hazy head. Lemony, lemon drops even, in the nose. More of the same, flowery even, climbing over some very light honey to some herbal hoppy bitterness. Honeyish/flowery and quite nice. Balanced, weird, lovely little lager.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the brewpub.
Spicy aroma, pepper, cinnamon, citrus.
A pity the beer ends up as rahter one dimensional.
Spices, yes, but there is an uninteresting lager undeneath this.
There is a good indea in there that I hope their bewer will find out of.
Grape juice in the aftertaste.
Maybe they could blend this with another beer?

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden with a big and lasting, fluffy white head. Perfumed fruity aroma, of pineapple, orange and somewhat soapy citrus. Not unlike a saison. Dry and fruity flavour, that doesn’t quite deliver on the promising aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at Pre ZBF thanks to Urbs.
Had this down as "Czech champagne thingy" in my notes. Took me a while to find it... This is kids sweets in a glass. Refreshers, sherbet dips and Parma violets. Absolutely crazy. I really have nothing I can pitch this against. Totally unique. Not a world beater but a very enjoyable experience. The look on everyones face as they tasted it summed it all up really.
