Bottle. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is grainy, bready, some old world hops. Taste is bready, grainy, a bit sweet, and some vegetables/Belgian yeasts, unusual for a Lager. Silky mouthfeel, high carbonation.
Bottle in train from Brussels to The Hague. Dough, hops, vegetable bitterness, yeast, clay, some lemon. Bitter with smooth malty finish. Body is medium, carbo too. Quite a lot of flavor for a lager, nice frothy feel, but the finish is a bit ’unclean’. Not very sessionable.
Bottle in the train from Brussels. Very slightly hazy golden, really can’t see the head as I don’t have a glass. Light fruits up front with dried peach and lemon, light Pilsner malts and quite hoppy finish with grass, mariuana and again some citrus. Light sweet and medium bitter. Under medium bodied. Quite a nice pils.
Bottle @ home. Clear gold with a small white head. Smells pilsener, grains, grassy. Tastes pilsener, grains. Nothing crazy, refreshing, nice. Thin to medium body, crisp carbo.
Smooth malty beginning. Nice bitter but fresh and grainy. Aromatic with lots of grain, but round and nice bitter. The aftertaste is grainy-smooth, nice intense bitter with not too much depth, but fresh and sessionable.
Light orange. 2 finger sticky white head. 375ML bottle I picked up today at the brewery. Aroma is weak. maybe hay and grass and lemon. I’m not a fan of the taste though. has an old hops taste, some burnt malts, not refreshing. it does have a good yeast profile but that’s all.
Bohemian style Pilsener, a style seldomly seen in Belgium. Clear, deep golden blonde, stable, snow white head; malt sweetish character, a bit bready, with sharp carbonation and noble, grassy, aromatic hop bitterness in the finish. Very decent - in fact, one of the better Belgian lagers I had so far, though admittedly that doesn’t usually mean a whole lot.
@ 3Fonteinen. Yellow/golden colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Medium bitter pils with light sweet hints. Grainy with light hoppy finish. Also some hints of citrus.
330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, straw, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Czech pilsner style. All around good robustness and balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy light amber with a bubbly white head. The atom is yeasty with a little dry matt. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery bitter hop palate and a long bitter finish. Light bodied with average carbonation. A tasty lager indeed.
