Bottled at SBWF. Hazy golden, mid sized head. Grassy fruity nose, unfortunately riddled by boiled vegetables. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Light floral hops, but the vegetables remain until the finish.

Pour is hazy straw colour with pure white head with very little retention/lacing.
Nose is bread, honey, lemon, faint floral notes. Taste follows, though the flowers come out a bit more, as does some earth and must. Finish is crisp and spicy, as it should be. Another solid entry from these guys, though not my fave.

Slightly hazy golden pour with an average white head that leaves some lace. Light grain and lemon zest on the nose with an earthy hint. A little livelier on the palate but maintains the same profile. Fairly high carbonation.

Easily the best ’Sner I have ’snerred in a ’sner’s age! T du D just bangs beers out of the park, especially styles I am not a huge go-to fan of. It’s a hazy light straw with a thin white head that smells of wheat, corn, must basement, cereal and white wine. Taste is bittersweet, light caramel and white bread. I’d pound this Pils on the reezy son...uhhh!

Le Trou has never let me down yet. Poured a hazy straw with a small sudsy head that disappeared fast. Aroma was of wheat, honey, citrus, and a little vinous. Tasted of cereal, wheat, and light orange flavour. Had a medium body with a smooth mouth feel and low carbonation. It had a weak white wine bite near the end, which was refreshing. Not big on Pilseners, but Trou always does a nice twist on things.
