Quevillon (2531) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUL 6, 2014
341 ml bottle bought at Les Marchants de la Bière in Sainte-Thérèse (Quebec) on June 24, 2014. Golden blonde little head. Aroma of herbs and mango, a little wheat. The taste is somewhat similar but a little sour, more bitter than the TDD one. It is a little less tasty than the TDD version!

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 14, 2014
I thought I’d already rated this! Bottle from a dep in Montreal. It poured a lively pale lightly cloudy straw gold with a huge juicy citrusy grapefruit aroma & a bready/crackery pilsner malt. Soft mouthfeel and medium body. Very pleasant bitter citrus grapefruit flavor with a solid malt backbone.

KyotoLefty (6571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle, side by side with the other version. This one is quite malty, bready, anbd thick, and much more bitter with less hop flavors and aromas. A bit dull compared to the other, though still nice.

Pours hazy gold yellow with a small white top and good lacing. Aroma is cereal malts with citrus hops. Taste is light and zesty with citrus and a touch of lemon hops with cereal malts.

apotekhin (79) - ISRAEL - SEP 30, 2014
Very delicate citrusy aroma. Flavor of wheat, spicy and a little bitter. With a bitter finish. Body is smoother and creamy. Delicious. But how is this a pilsner?!

Minderbinder (1888) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle 341ml. Pours hazy blond with low-medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of wheat, citrus, fruits. Taste is of wheat, bannanas, spices, bitterness, sugar, citrus, slight alcohol. Palate: Medium body. Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Good. Wheaty. Yeast seems under control. Fairly refreshing, but quite bitter.

JulienHuxley (3272) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold pour with white head. Aroma is hoppy, dank, nice sweet fruity tropical hop notes. Taste is hoppy, really powerful hop bite which is nice, light bready pilsner malt, fruity. Palate is light with med carbonation. Tasty beer.

dandeman (528) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Olfactif légèrement citronné avec notes de fleurs, de pain et une touche de fruit de la passion. Le citron ressort cependant plus que les autres. Bonne puissance. Le visuel est jaune / doré, légèrement flou avec une mousse de bonne épaisseur, de belle densité et un maintient assez long. La mousse colle très bien. Le gustatif installe rapidement les notes citronnées en attaque, avec un picotement assez intense, sur une base de de pain et de fruits tropicaux. Le tout est couronné d’une finale sèche aux notes florales et résineuses. L’équilibre des saveurs est bien en place. L’acidité, les fruits, les sucres et l’amertume sont en parfaite symbiose. Une expérience très réussie. Complètement hors norme et hors style. Ne cherchez pas de traits de pilsner là-dedans. Ce n’est pas le but. Le but était probablement de brasser une bière originale et éclatée. Du vrai jazz.

djd07 (3699) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2014
On tap at Avenue pub. Pours a cloudy gold with small off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is cereal and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with light mango, wheat, cereal. Good.

worldbeertaste (1670) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Medium pale gold with a thin, soapy white head. Smells of lemon citrus, with pale malt and soft sugars. Tastes about the same. Super smooth and light. Leaves a strong oaky dry aftertaste
