An exciting pilsner/ saison style. Very herby nose, mildly spiced. Purchased a 1.5l magnum of it would you believe? Easy drinking and well balanced, bitterness of hops gives way to a

This is an interesting brew, sweet hop aroma on the nose, it’s bittering finish from champagne yeast also makes it pils/saison in style. Mouth feel is great from natural carbonation this is a great brew and worth trying

Aroma: clean bitterness. Appearance: beautiful cloudy gold colour with streaming bubbles like champagne. Taste: crisp, dry bitterness with a delicate lingering bitterness and subtle malt character. A wonderfully different beer that drinks much more like a champagne! Serve in champagne flute for the full effect.

nice hoppy bitter, with a golden hay like malts make this quite quenchable. the palate is very soft and the bitter are not too demanding yet there is a touch of honey like flavor.

The aroma is very malty with hay like hops. The appearance is golden with an average head for the style. The taste is bitter and like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall not really bad but not good either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours a fluffy lasting white head, with extensive lacing....over a slightly hazy (initially), golden (SRM 5) body...nose is light cereal, light spice.....taste is light sweet cereal to start, finishing with a mild spiced bitterness....mouth feel is medium, carbonation low. This is a low hop bitterness, not particularly spicy, Pilsner. Additionally, it is very obviously bottle conditioned as the crud rapidly increased as the bottle was emptied. It is not a crisp as the best in this style, and at least in this bottle drifts toward the Belgian Golden Ale type, what with all the autolysis going on. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6

This is definately a beer of two halves - young it is a really clean, fresh Pilsner with zesty grapefruit aromatics and long, bitterness that can be a tad astringent.
With age it mellows to a rich, creamy beer with toasty autolisis notes.
