Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle at Andy and Max’s fantasy tasting. Pours a slightly hazed light golden with a nice lively carbonation and lasting sticky white head- nice lace. Aroma is earthy, toasty, bready pils malt, some fresh dough mixed with nice restrained saaz spicy and herbal fresh hops. Flavor is light grassy, mineral, toast, light biscuit, dough and pils malts, crackery with a clean spicy saaz hop kick but is still restrained for such a large beer- the malts also do not get sweet at all which was surprising. It was quite subtle overall and very nice. I liked it! j12601 (13033) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle at Andy and Max’s fantasy tasting. Pours a milky and hazy looking yellow with a thin white head. Big fuzzy brett, nice wheat and a touch of musk. Medium bodied, nice wheat and like fuzzy funk. Nice smooth crisp finish. mcox90 (2119) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 1, 2010
750 ml bottle courtesy of Soonah. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a 2 finger frothy head. As the head recedes, rings of white lace are left behind. Aroma has a hint of spice, malts and grassy hops. Moderate bodied palate with lively carbonation. Lingering dry finish. Flavor is bread with honey, some subtle hop flavor and a hint of spice. Very nice indeed.

Poured golden and slightly hazy with a nice white head and good lacing. The aroma was grass, spice and plenty of bready malts. A bit of sugary sweetness as well. The flavor was a nice blend of floral and grassy hops with spice, breads and sugar. The mouthfeel was soft carbonation and a slightly sweet finish that lingered nicely. Really good. 1FastSTi (3361) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours to a pale golden body with a nice creamy looking starch white head. Nice copious amount of lacing. The aroma is heavy on the Saaz hops but has a nice crisp pale malt. Very clean aroma. The flavor is the most clean tasting simple pilsner I’ve ever had. Very, very well made. The best pilsner I’ve ever had. Very clean palate that hides the 8% very well. The beer is damned near perfect in the pilsner style.

Thanks to Blake for bringing the 750mL bottle. Poured hazy pale golden with constant rising carbonation and a creamy cap of white head. The aroma opened with sweet lemongrass, freshly-cut floral notes, and dry white pepper over sweet bready maltage and just a faint hint of honey.. soft overall impression, especially considering the ABV. The flavor found the same soft breads and honey at the core, with spicy pepper, earth, and floral bitterness around.. just a little warmer than your typical pils (hence the imperial).. clean, peppery finish with very little alcohol present. Medium-bodied with just the right carbonation moving it across the palate.. dry, spicy, and as clean as you’ll ever find for the style. Excellent.

A nice yellow color with faint head. A solid Brett flavor. Smooth. Not hot at all. Incredibly so. This is dangerous. And great. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2010
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with a small frothy white head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet malt and wheat grass. Medium mouthfeel with a dry honey and bubblegum. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink. A very good European strong lager from Boulevard. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 22, 2010
(750ml bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear pale yellow body with tall white head. Aroma of florals, cereal, grass, herbs, and bread. Flavor of florals, grass, crackers, light soapiness, and some citrus with a dry finish. bierkoning (13607) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2010
Corked bottle. Blonde, pours a steady head. Apple, hay and vanilla in the aroma. Alcoholic, yet grassy and slightly perfumed flavor. Hints of vanilla and citrus. Deceptively drinkable.
