UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 8/30/2014 Bottle at home (batch LS225/11, best before 01/2014). Pours a hazy golden orange with a big head. Aroma is bitter hoppy, malts, a bit fruity, but probably a lot less than when fresh. Taste is quite bitter hoppy with some malty sweetness. Dry finish with a long hoppy bitter aftertaste. Nice, would like to try it fresh.
10/26/2014 Bottle at home (33cl, batch LS14414C, best before 06 2016) Pours hazy golden with a white head, less big than previously. Bit more hoppy aroma this time, more fruitiness, floral, piney, taste is a bit more sweet, but still quite some hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Maybe just a bit better fresh, but I will stick to my previous rating. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Tap at Broder’s Terzo Vino Wine Bar in south Minneapolis. This is the Italian version of this beer. Hazy golden-yellow pour with a nice white head. Bready, a little spicy. This seems a little dryer than I remember the Dogfish Head version that I had from a bomber.

bottle, thanks to skykob for grabbing this at beergeek. quite a pale golden with a minimal but lasting head; tropical and citric aroma, some grapefruit; light-bodied, not much alcohol showing for an imperial pils, good hit of bitterness, slightly metallic; too bad czech breweries can’t make stronger pilses like this Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Collaboration with Dogfish Head, an imperial Pilsener, in other words: a strong lager with ambitions. Creamy, snow white head, clear golden blonde colour with orange glow. Sharp and not very inviting aroma of bread, lots of grassy hops, lemon peel, iron, black pepper, blue cheese and a weird, bit chemical smell of turpentine or something like that. Tastes fortunately a lot better, rounded, clean pale malts, lively and fascinating spicy notes, bit metallic, rather full body, firm and assertive, long herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Different and interesting. Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Nebuloso color biondo con morbido cappello di spuma bianca saponosa. Aroma delicatamente agrumato con più spiccati sentori di luppolo e frutto esotici; gusto amarognolo ben bilanciato tra note di frutta fresca e altre più "nette" di luppoli erbaceo. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, struttura setosa; finale amaro e persistente. Ottima interpretazione!

Bottle, from OP. Clear pale body with low head. Aroma is fruity, rather tropical, mango, banana. Taste has honey sweetness upfront with very light fruity character, banana, light vanilla in the background. The bitterness is medium to low with earthy character. The fruitiness remains in the after taste, mostly in dark orange and peach flavors. Body is full, high carbonation. bruxellover (19) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
In Las Vegas at a refined Italian/steak-house.Much better than a typical US lager or Italian Peroni. I don’t rate those as they are available everywhere and you can try them yourself. This one however is more unique. Nice spice in aroma and flavor....wouldnt pair it with anything except a light Burrata. Golden clear pure white head and nice dry finish. angelkostvo (1248) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 17, 2014

Bottle @ P1 House, Phitsanulok. Hazy golden, white head. Fruity sweet and yeasty nose and taste, nicely spicy, bitter, with soft creamy malts. Rounded and balanced, but still quite complex. Medium carbonation and body, creamy mouthfeel. Saison-ish.
