3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from Mikeller Webshop.
Dark golden, clear body, with a big, frothy, dense head, that laces a lot.
Aroma of passion fruit and other fruits, grass, hay, some herbs, candy, some alcohol.
Taste with a lot of grass, citrus, pine, some tropical fruits, herbs, honey, alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium, quite oily, with a lively carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, with pine, lemon zest, a lot of grass again and slightly alcohol warming.
Nice. Pretty intense, not only because of the noticeable alcohol, but also because of quite dominant grassy notes and a strong bitter, dry finish. Good drinkability though. Some nice tropical fruits and sweet candy notes for a good balance. Overall enjoyable, but not my favourite beer of this style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head, leaving great thicker lace. Medium to bigger body, good full feel. Pretty creamy overall, whole feel and appearance has a sort of nitro-aspect to it (but it’s not pouring nitro). Smooth, creamy lighter carbonation. Light slick body, lightly dry in the finish. Great big bready doughy malt. Kind of crackery, kind of cake-like. Mild peppery, some decent piney hop but not as hoppy as expected judging from the description.. The American way of doing "hoppy imperial pils" is to just brew a DIPA with lager yeast it seems, but this respects the pilsner base, much more creative and thought out, I respect that. The hop doesn’t dominate the aroma, but provides for a pleasant moderate to bigger bitterness. Light to moderate sweet. Very balanced taste. Pretty fun stuff.

33cl bottle. Pours a beautiful orange with a thick off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, light sweet fruits, orange marmalade. Taste is also malty and fruity developing into a good dry bitterness with vegetal notes. Still some sweet fruits in the finish along with a light alcoholic warmness.
