Robe orange, translucide, pas de bulle. Mousse blanche, moyenne, légère, tenue moyenne. Nez doux, caramel, malt, légèrement fruité, touche herbacé. Bouche douce, fruits mûrs, abricot, pain, pâtisserie. Douceur alcooleuse. Corpulence moyenne, carbonatation moyenne. Strong lager douce, gourmande, forte, mais buvable. Curiosité.

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit, bread, hops and spices.

Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and spices.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Not really that strong for its abv to be honest, but it is still a rather complex taste that does not fail to deliver. Great appearance and palate as well, but the aroma could have been stronger.

Der kann was. Der Hopfen treibt den Getreidewürzuntergärer das Ale ein. Öler mit Honeyaspekt. Mosaic of BigBuddhaism ✨😀. 0,1/1 Jetson. ZYTHOS 2017.

Very cloudy blond appearance. Aroma is a little grassy. Flavour is similar. Also quite malty. Why is this a "hoppy pilsener"?

(draught) slightly hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of orange peel and roasted onions, with a touch of walnuts, some blueberries and yeast. flavour is mostly grass and pale malts, with a light hint of marzipan, some green apple and a medium-bitter earthy finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Mooi goudblond troebel bier met zéér romige schuimkraag. Bloemig aroma, hop, gist. Goeie bitter in de smaak. Brood, witte druif, kandijsuiker. Goed bittere afdronk. Lekker als aperitiefbiertje.

75cl bb12/2018 courtesy du brasseur at BBF 2016, merci. "hop-bursted Imperial Pilsner" translates into: closing the gap between DIPA (mango marmelade), Belgian pils with heavy esters, heller Bock (marzipan and apricot starchy malt body, drenched madeleines). Dirty mid parts, almost meaty proteins with a certain oily, seductive power (illusion of chewiness). Somewhere, Fantôme’s happenstance je-m’en-foutisme peeks in to say "To Hell with all those juicy US hop oils", adding quark, cheese and peach jam. An almost irresistable, possibly unrecreatable piece of Belgian bricolage...

75cl bottle. Cloudy golden colour with a nice white head. Yeast, biscuit, peach and grassy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet with citric and fruity notes at first and dry and bitter towards the finish. Overall, a very good beer.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2016
Odd choice for a winter beer, but fair enough mid summer now and spot on on what I wanted. Modern hops, also grassy, very nice. Cake and biscuit malt backup, nice sweaty sweetness given the style. Not clean per se but rather crisp still, especially in the taste, with a sharp bitterness and equal carbonation. Yummy! (75cl bottle from Belgian Beer Shop Leuven)

PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2016
APPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: biscuit, hoppy, grass. TASTE: biscuit, hoppy, grass, dry, bitter. Many thanks Melissa for the bottle!
