12oz bottle, the first of the 2012 batch, into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale gold body beneath an inch of fine white head. Average retention, spotty lace. Pretty good.

S: Clean and simple, with crackery malt, spicy hops, and a touch of citrus fruit. Light minerality. Pleasant.

T: Opens with bread crust, followed quickly by fresh, spicy, herbal hops; some sweeter malt balances with dry, crisp lager yeast on the super-clean, mildly fruity finish. Vibrant and enjoyable throughout.

M: Lively, frothy, slightly coarse carbonation in a soft medium body. Good.

O: This is a terrific, piquant, crisp Pils - but I can't imagine it will still be so tasty come July...

Cheers!
