4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
i could copy other ratebierians that i respect and put out a solid review.i do not want to do that,but i do want to say that my level of understanding of how beer is made does not let me do justice to a complete review.
what i can say is this beer was delicious.i think it was one of the top 25 beers that i ever had.i am sorry that i only bought one bottle(bought/carried 10 news beers from the store that day).
i can not wait to try this again!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is really interesting, earthy, herby, almost like Dr. Pepper in there. But also bright. Appearance is nice, very clear pale gold with long-lasting head and lacing. The taste experience is dominated by the finish, so I’l mention that first. It’s kind of bitter but also floral/perfumey as well. Getting back to the start it’s actually very malty with some fruitiness. That bitterness is also there as well. Feel is great, not too light but also complex. Kind of tingly in places but bitter as well. This is a very well-balanced and complex little beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle @ RIP camp.
Pours a golden colour with a white foamy. Aroma of grassy hops, sweet honey and spruce. Flavour of strong prominent noble hops, grainy malts, pine, some fruity sweetness, . Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and a dry, very bitter, grassy finish. Definitely quite unique, as this is so sweet and fruity but also very bitter.

75 cl bottle @ RIP camp, produced 03/2013
Aroma is musty with some fruity and floury notes. Also some gooseberry bush leaves. Flavour is fruity with apricot, bush leaves and herbs. Also hints of fruit candy. Closer to a Belgian ale than kellerbier.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille 75cl partagée avec Tomaz, bottled on 03/2013.
Couleur orangée, col blanc fin.
Arôme présente un bouquet très allemand qui est superbement plaisant et rappelle fort le style allemand. Sympa pour une québecoise qui pour moi supplante bcp d’allemandes du même style.
Note rappelant le maïs, fleuri et houblonné, légère pointe de pin et citronné. Cara-pâle avec ce rendu de feuilles vertes citronnier en retrait. Le tout est ponctué par un agréable côté grains.
Palais est malté, carapils malt type européen. Amertume moyenne citronnée et fleurie surtout en fin de bouche avec un profil houblonné noble neutre. Garde une certaine douceur de grains qui est fort agréable. Belle rondeur maltée, caramel avec encore ici un rappel qu style allemand classique mais amélioré&.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy pilsner-beautiful smooth rich taste but still retains the freshness of a classic pilsner-the best of both worlds. Cracker of a cleansing ale with something else that takes it to the next level.
