3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Belgianshop.com. Pours a lavishly beautiful gold, like Hayley Duffs hair... anyway, very hoppy aroma with bread undertones. Flavor is slightly bitter and slightly sour, with hints of plum and bread in the background. Palate fills the holes and does a great job of it. Finish gives the slight yeast/bread finish most often associated with a Belgian product. A very good pilsner- one of the best I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Somewhat hoppy aroma. Very clear with very good head retention. Hop flavor comes through very well, with enough crispness to balance and a little more body than I would have expected. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle poured yellow with a small head.
Aroma is sweet and crisp.
Flavor is a bit bitter, light hops and caramel with a creamy mouthfeel .

A unique vanilla and caramel aroma for a pils. Yellow body not much of a head. Medium bitterness for flavor and had a creamy texture also. Good beer

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 Muito boa essa pilsen belga. Coloração dourada - bonita. Espuma branca, normal. Aroma levemente frutado (banana), traços de malte. Uma cerveja encorpada, retrogosto levemente amargo e frutado. Complexa. Melhor que as premiuns brasileiras.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottled. Much compact and creamy head, optimal persistence. Limpid yellow color, extremely shining and bubbly one. Ordinary scent but with pleasant notes of dried grass and malty. Prickly and bitter taste, with a medium but balanced body. Little tangible alcohol tone. Good duration end.

Bottled (BB 09/2005)
Pale yellow color with small but quite lasting white head. Sweet, bready malty nose, somewhat hoppy - in the edge is it also harsh or not. Medium-bodied. Average hopping (Saaz), finishing malty. A bit watered down Urquell-clone. Clean, drinkable, but just "ok".
