3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Tap at ZBF. One of the better Pilsener brews of Belgium. It got some fruity candy taste and some sweet hoppy aftertaste.
At last found the bottle version at the Schans, Uithoorn. This one got more caramel taste, and looks darker.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2012 // light clear golden with a white head // smells rather fruity with spices and lightly hoppy, oranges and some sugar // taste lightly fruity, peaches main, touch orange, light yeast, round caramel, sugar, honey and melon, light hops and spices in the finish // fittingly well carbonated, easy to drink // not even remotely a pilsner, it is nice to finally try a Belgian pilsner which is actually worth drinking, not sure what style this should actually be but I like it, sessionable

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Bottle. Gold to light amber color, creamy head. A hint of honey i the aroma. Orange and honey in the flavor, combined with just a bit of hops. Tastes a bit like a diluted Girardin geuze white label, but certainly has complexity and a fine flavor. A pleasant surprise, but hardly a pilsener.
Tap@ Oude Pruim Beersel. Golden color, hazy. Floral aroma with a hint of citrus. Floral citric hopbitter flavor/ Cellar aftertaste with a hint of citrus. I could swear there were some bretty notes.

Is this really the same beer - I can’t believe this was a pilsener?!
Draught (Wildeman, Amsterdam)
Dull orange, slightly hazy, small head. Massive woody malt-whisky aroma, but without any alcohol of course - lots of walnut too. Amazingly nutty taste - walnut through and through. Nutty and sweet finish. Not drying or harsh - beautiful. If it’s a lager - it’s the best lager I think I’ve ever had!

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Golden colour, rich head. Bready nose. Meaty, buttery and fairly dry with spicy notes amd some grassy hops. Fresh and rich with soft mouthfeel. Surprisingly flavourful and full of character for being a Belgian pilsener.
