MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 12, 2005
RBSG 2005 at DDC: Clear brilliant copper body and a thin white head. Moderate yeast and hop aroma. Taste is sweet and not much resembling a pilsener except the aroma. (shown as an Imperial Pilsener at DDC) Mild fruit flavor-grape and apple. A little wood, rubber and plastic also.

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.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Delicious brew. The pour is a bright and vibrant glowing orange with a bright finger of white head. The nose is funky....with a good dose of barnyard funk, hay, acetic notes and juicy fruits. The mid palate is sweet, toasty and fruity with light funky notes and light bitterness. The finish is a bit bitter with a warm booziness. Overall a nice brew.

Minderbinder (1578) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours clear golden with low off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, fruits (tropical), alcohol. Taste is of citrus, pine, fruits. Somewhat bitter, but well-balanced. Interesting body. Overall: Very good. Very drinkable for the abv. So watch out.

Bright, hazy amber w/ pale tan foam. Excellent lace. Bread, biscuits, & caramel on the nose w/ notes of grassy hops & grapefruit. LIght-medium, syrupy feel. Sweet, malty flavour w/ a touch a toastiness. Finish is relatively clean, but some grassy hops linger.

coldbrewky (1411) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle courtesy of MartinT. Merci! Robust from the get-go. Nose of rich sweet malt supported by light piney hops. Nose translates directly to large body. Overall short lived on tongue. Desire for more easily outweighs the mere 341 ml bottle. A beautiful deep golden brass in glass. Steady carbonation yields decent head. Biscuit in finish. MMMmmm.

Bouteille 341 ml. 8.5%. Couleur jaune foncé presque ambrée. Mousse blanche. Arôme de céréales, houblon et un peu de citrus. En bouche, crémeuse, herbes, malt, agrumes et un peu de de caramel. Finale en amertume et un peu de sucré. Excellente. Merci encore Dieu du Ciel.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden blonde with a very short-lasting white head. Smell is hoppy. Taste is butter (???) and caramel. Some lemon, citrusy bitterness, along with pepper. Did I also detect some pear? Medium bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Very good pilsner - actually reminded me of a Belgian strong ale...but...oh well, it was good!
