Chalky blond and an effervescent white head. Tart, lactic aroma of bright fruit, ginger and pepper. Light to medium bodied with full flavor, still tart , but also malty and spicey. Nicely dry and lemony in the finish with just the right touch of ginger. I can’t tell what the other reviews were complaining about, maybe it needed the full 6 months in the bottle. It’s like a tripel with apricot. This beer is tasty, complex and well-structured. BeerandBlues2 (13323) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012

Medium bodied, sweet and spicy, nice yeast with a good amount of phenols, musk and toast. Very easy drinking, nice musk and spicy notes into the finish. Very nice. onceblind (9700) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2012
On hand at Wynkoop’s United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Slightly hazy light gold in color, with a peppery apricot-y aroma atop some Belgian pale graininess. Flavor was nice and eccentric, with apricot and peppercorn and grains of paradise coming through very well. Finished a little grainy and funky, but still fun to drink.

Bottle at Dadtoberfest. Hazy gold with a white head. Peachy sweetness, light peppery spices, with some funky/musky notes in the background. I don’t know what the hell is going on here, but it’s pretty good. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2012

"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. " derA (91) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Tap @ Tap & Bottle, seems to be unretired? Cloudy, bright yellow color, nose is overwhelmingly isoamylacetate at first but when swirling develops some of those typical grains of paradise notes: fresh, gingery, white pepper. Also quite a bit of lemon and lemongrass. Mouthfeel is crispy, could maybe do with a little bit more carbonation, light body. Finishes fairly fruity and not very long lasting. Seems like a very nice thirst quencher to me but there’s a little too much going on on the nose. I would have preferred either lemon or pepper aroma to be dominant.
