UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 01/11/2014 tap @ Koppenberg Cross Clear golden colour with small white head. Smell is grains and hay. Taste is grains again, light yeast, light bitterness at the end. Not a fan of the style but one of the best I had in ages.

Vaiz (3530) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden pour. Aroma is quite watery, some grainy malts and a bit sugary. Flavor is watery grainy sweet malts. Simple but clean pilsener.

Can. Pale gold with a white head. Grainy aroma with some hay and herbs. Sweet and grainy with a decent bitter and peppery kick at the end. Finish is dry. Not awful but rather dull.

eduardovl (929) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml can served in a chalice. A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a huge white aired bubbled head. Good retention and some lacings left S: Smells like a regular Lager. Very grainy. Sweet grains, corn, yeasts and hops T: Pretty much like the nose. Sweet grains. A strong grainy backbone. Metallic. A dry beer, in overall. Mild hops bitterness aftertaste. Disappointing M: Very light body. High carbonated. Mild sweet upfront, mild bitter aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Completely disappointing beer. Oh yeah, Belgium can produce disappointing beer [ BA Review @ 6/7/2012 ]

Tarosama (49) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Another everyday Belgian pils. Very light golden colour. Sweetish, quite gassy, added “corn”ish flavour. You can buy from B&M, £3.99 for 4 cans. Good value for money.

kermis (5607) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle shared from a free six pack from Dranken Geers, thanks! Pours clear golden with an off white head. Aroma of light fruits, grain, malt and light yeast. Flavor is light to light moderate sweet and bitter. Light bodied with high carbonation. Decent example of the style.

TATE (304) - Lubec, Maine, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow with thin white head. Faint malt aroma overpowered by skunkiness though the bottle shows expiration in October. Good malt up front though very faint with little to no hop bitterness. The balance is okay but very light. Okay but nothing special.

Free six-pack from Dranken Geers :-). Poured Straw with a small off white froth. Aroma of sweet grainy malt. Light to medium body, flavour as the aroma, quite crisp and drinkable.
