COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

gotta say this the strangest bottle shape i have seen yet. contains a clear gold liquid that pours with a medium sized, fluffy white head. aroma is fresh with a baking soda hint and some limey hop scents. high carbonation and a very light body. this beer tastes quite fresh to me. a lime bitterness cuts the malt. super dry finish. nice surprise.

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2009
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of malts with fruits. The taste is also malty with fruits and it has some dry bitter in the back. The aftertaste is very dry, with bitterness and sweet. The bottle is special and extraordinary.

Bottle@HotelNootdorp. Quite malty aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace, very nice bottle and glass btw. Malty, bitter, sweet for a pilsener, nice body. Not bad for a Dutch lager.

Clear golden coloured, dying head. Grassy and gariny aroma and flavour. Nothing special about this one, except for the bottle...
