Strange brew here. Not what I was expecting. No nose to speak of at first whiff, but it might be a tad cold. Poured piss clear into a large Piraat snifter. Taste was a bit shocking. I guess I was expecting more roundness and yeast. Pils and hops hit me hard. Hops galore here, with grapefruit pith and other bitter notes . Warming up now, much much better. sweetness coming through, with some nice spice and soft citrus. This is definitely an American interpretation of the the style, and I like it. I can't quite categorize it in my mind yet. I strongly urge anybody tasting this beer to temper it properly. The subtle notes that show off the brewers art cannot possibly be appreciated otherwise. I'm liking this beer more and more. I want my rating to be an A-, but I can't think of what to change. Oh well.
