SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle thanks to Crusianbeer. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma of faint vegitable, nice big earthy hop profile, very malty and spicy. Flavor much the same and kinda sweet. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Solid brew!

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2011
On tap at the Blind Tiger for their Dieu du Ciel event. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Sweet malt, a bit of brown sugar, caramel and toast. Big and sweet, a good amount of candy and sweet light malt. Spicy alcohol on the finish, warm bitter grains and dusty noble hops.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew, Streets, Mark, Ben and Kyle. Pours a deep hazy orange body with nice cloudiness. Aroma is fruit, funk, spicy notes, and pils. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with dryer notes bleeding through the finish. One of the most flavorful pilsners I’ve ever tried. Thanks DDC.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle at home, thanks to Fred82. Pours lightly hazy polished copper; thin white head, lacing is spotty to poor. Nose is floral, with creamy notes, some honey, some real mineral/chalk notes here as well, also a hint of cold cream. Flavours of soft earth, some hop florals/bitterness, a touch on the vegetal side, which isn’t really grabbing me... Pleasantly malty throughout, some real spiciness and candied stonefruit comes through as well. Dried fruit, especially apricots, and some tobacco towards the finish. A solid brew, but something I’m rather glad just to have one of.

341ml bottle from jsprime. pours deep golden with a small white head. lazy carbonation. very sweet aroma. deep sweet malt body with some bitterness but not a lot of hop flavour. not my fav from these guys.

kevinsenn (1032) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
4-pack from Marche Omni. Pours clear amber with little-to-no head. Aroma has some fruit, brown sugar, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is honey and malt, and is packed with alcohol; surprising because 8.5% isn’t THAT strong. Bitter finish. Thick palate that is much more suited for an ale than a pilsener. A little disappointing from such an amazing brewery.

Boutip (4646) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear dark golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with light dry hops notes is interesting. Taste is more dominated by sweet malt notes then Nobel dry hops then I was expecting. Body is fuller then expected with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting take of the style but I would personally have preferred more Noble hops notes.
