4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the the head. Awesome appearance. Aromas of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bright citrus/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, light pine, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean flavors as well, with pretty much zero yeast ester presence. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice German pilsener style. All around good balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark yellow, hazy beer with a big, clouding and blond head. The nose has pure malts, aromatic hops, citrusfruits, some grass and kiwis. Taste has citrusfruits, grapefruits and lemon, also some tropical fruits, some light grain. The bitterness is not very strong, but it’s enough and aromatic. Fruits are dominating. Medium bodied, pleasant and smooth. Surprisingly good beer, enjoyable, smooth and fruitful.

Aroma is yeast and carbonation. Taste is very subtle and sweet malts followed by some tartiness that sticks around but doesnt overwhelming. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a fluffy pearl head that retains well.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Upon pouring, the white foam filled the tall glass to the rim and retained well and laced well. It produced a hazy golden coloured liquid. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma subtly of sour grainy malt with a hint of spice. Taste of spices, a bit like a wit bier, plus some hops bitterness. Light body. Dry, lingering bitterness and a lingering sourness as it warmed. More like a bitter ale than a pilsner. Not for me.

Quite tasty. For me the taste is in between a german hefeweizen and a belgian saison (dupont). Some straw and funk make this interesting and enjoyable.

Really good for a pilsner. Interesting flavours of spices (almost like a Heffeweizen) with some hoppy goodness. Decent!

Bottle. Golden and slightly cloudy. A touch of spice produces a different flavour. The finish is quite sweet and left lots of lacing. Interesting.
