3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a small head. Quite mild aroma with smooth hops, grainy malt, toffee, and some fruitiness. Fruity, softly herby-hoppy flavor with lots of buttery toffee. Medium-bodied, smoothly carbonated palate. A very smooth, malty and pleasant pils, with typical, soft Belgian hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(25cl bottle) Hazy, orange colour with a firm and thick foamy white head. Sweet malty, herbal and slightly floral hoppy aroma with notes of apricots, citrus and honey. Sweet flavour, malty, slightly wheaty taste, fruity with a light hoppy background; sweet malty finish, slightly spicy and yeasty with a very shy bitterness. Pleasant, tastes more like a Belgian Ale than a Pilsener.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Hazy, golden coloured, medium-sized head, diminishing to a foamy layer; quite strong odd fruity nose (apricots, peaches, pears); sweetish fruity taste, creamy to sticky mouthfeel; short fruity and a little, very little bit bitter finish. Natuurlijk hommel ? Ridiculous !

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden, creamy white head; the aroma is pleasant and balanced, there is just way to little of it; Very pleasant body, full, balanced to the bitter side, a little sweetness; sharp carbonation; perfect fill in finish, which is very constant (no ”holes”, no watery parts, just smooth), soft with bitter touch, malty , nuts, bread, but behind it fresh red berries like strawberry. The best Pilsner I have had.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light, pale golden-straw body with a small fluffy white head. The aroma consists of bread, soap, and fruity cereal hops and maybe some oranges. Smooth and yeasty along with a malt backing that includes bread and grass. The bitterness is soft, yet expressive though not necessarily pronounced. Some light hay sweetness. Not bad.
I think this was 0.50E, purchased at Streekproductencentrum in Halle, Belgium on May 11, 2006.

Keg @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Nice white head. Damp cellar aroma a la northern Germany. Taste is more like a Franconian or north Bavarian pils. Clean maltiness that ends in a fruity style. Could almost be mistaken for a cheap Czec beer...maybe. Surprisingly good.

25 cl bottle, bbe May 06. Clear orange, a few bubbles, small unstable white head. Sweet aroma of mellon. Very malty taste with hop bitterness only expressed in the rather weak but long aftertaste. Juicy, syrupy sweetness is also prominent. Strong, smooth body, good carbonation.
