2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
25cl bottle. Clear and light golden liquid with small to medium white head. Nose : apart sweet malt aroma there is nothing more to notice. Maybe something that reminds me dupont beers but that could be only the fact that my brain is expecting this to be a typical dupont brew. After shaking it I can sense some barnyard and low fruit , like mandarine. Coconut juice ? Sip ; water like body with a slight thicker body and little oily texture. Light carbonation. Sweet with a little bitter bite on the end. The aftertaste is delicate bitterness. The beer is a very delicate belgian pils. Not my style at all. I’m a bit disappointed. I tasted a dupont pils on the beer festival and I remembered it quite different.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Nuetnigenough, Bruxelles
Hazy blond color, large head. Mild aroma, with some malt and a very light straw and floral touch. Mild flavor, light malt with straws, moderate bitterness.
Very decent, it would be a quite good Helles, just missing some grassy hops (Saaz...).

Bottle thx to benzai. Mediocre, thin pilsener. Can’t win against the bigger, more famous pilseners.
