This premium pilsener is brewed with pure mineral water, a blend of the best barley malts and specially selected Cascade hops from the American Yakima Valley. Swinckels' Volmaakt is unpasteurized and freshly cooled at the brewery. This is why nothing of it's fresh flavor is lost. Swinckels' Volmaakt is available at the Brouwerij Cafe in Lieshout.

It comes in a funky clear bottle. It is standard skunky euro pale lager type swill. The bottle rules though. I originally reviewed this under a different name but i think this is what i had.

ogivlado (6659) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 9, 2011
Bottled 330ml. -from Julius Meinl Am Graben, Vienna. Clear golden coloured, medium sized white head, mild malty nose. Moderate malty, dusty and light grassy with short watery finish. What to expect from fancy looking bottles except bad beer in it. And where’s Cascade hops here???

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2011
Seems nothing special to me. Pretty standard, not much different tasting than other pilseners, just a little more exclusive I guess.

To me it seems like this is just pilsener, made a bit more exclusive so it can reel more money in. Smell wasn’t very good.

Countbeer (5613) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle: Small white head on top of a clear golden yellow colored beer. Smell malts, light citrussy, lime and peanut butter. Taste is a fresh malty mix of spices, hops, caramel hint of nuts and herbs. Very light bitter aftertaste. Low carbo, medium body, soft mouthfeel and a light watery texture. Nice!

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2011
Draft, Clear golden blond coloured, almost no carbonation and a small white head. Grainy, slightly sweet hinted aroma. Light bitter-sweet hoppy and sprankling palate. Finish is hoppy bitter sweet hinted. Refreshing. Not bad.

Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 Served in very pretty clear glass bottle, with matching glass. Very pretty but I was always told that clear glass isn’t too kind on the beer inside. Clear golden body, decent carbonation, small white head. Aroma of malts, sweet and a rather strong banana odour. Flavour is mostly sweet, malts, not much hop bitterness coming through. Nothing exciting happening here. (From 33cL bottle at Café Den Engel, Baarle-Nassau)

fewa (41) - Beersel, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2011
Fresh and not pasteurized. Bottle design is very nice. Tastes like a regular pilsner, only bit softer and more bitter. Nice

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Unique 330ml clear bottle. Golden color, white head, good lace. Aroma of corn. Flavor of pils malts, steamed vegetables, bitter hops, grass. Decent to the style, overall boring. Bottle is cool.
