3.71/5 rDev -10.2%
Batch #1, 2009. So this is a vintage.
Collaboration one pours a hazy golden color with a nice large long lasting head. The aroma is malty, sweet, crisp, with nice hints of yeasty and lemons. The taste has a nice crisp malty backbone, with nice hints of lemon, and a nice vanilla undertone. There are also a crisp grass like flavor, with a finish that has hints of a yeasty like flavor. Feels very nice, very nicely carbonated. Overall what a nice complex full flavored Pils, would have loved to tried a fresh one, but very surprised on how it aged.

Thanks to JeepCop for this bottle...
A: Pours a nice semi-opaque lemony yellow with about one and a half fingers of pure white head. The foam settles slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing along the glass.
S: This beer smells like a prefect pilsner. It smells crisp and clean, there are notes of fresh cut grass, lemon, and a bit of sweet berry.
T: This beers starts out wet and crisp. There is a bit of stinging mixed with berry as soon as it hits the palate. The berry flavors fade and the citrus notes come on strong afterward. Fresh cut grass and more citrus are evident in the finish. There is a nice malt backbone all the way through the taste.
M: Medium bodied beer. Don't let the clean, light, color fool you. This beer has a bit of heft to it. The carbonation starts off high, but it settles as it moves on the palate. It's not easy drinking, but it's solid.
O: This is a solid beer. I don't think I've ever had an Imperial Pilsner before. The mouthfeel is good and the flavors are spot on for a pilsner. I can;t pick up much alcohol for an 8% beer, which I greatly appreciate. Another quality Boulevard beer.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very slightly hazy yellow golden amber with a two finger white head and lacing. Malt and hop aroma. Full bodied with bready malt and nice pilsner flavor. Light hop finish. Well made and satisfying, but not one of my top styles. Glad to have tried it. Might revisit if it was available in smaller bottles.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tasting glass. It poured a light golden color with a thick white foam covering the top of the beer. Nice looking color to it.
The aroma has a crisp, citrus rind quality to it along with some tart fruits. I also get some sweeter pale malts and slight herbal spice.
The taste shows a little more of an herbal, earthy hop presence to it. I get some crisp, tart fruits to it along with some lemon rind zest.
The mouthfeel is light and carbonation is high. Overall it was pretty decent beer of the style. It was pretty drinkable and flavorful as well. I'm not usually a fan of double or imperial pilsners, but this one wasn't bad.

4.3/5 rDev +4.1%
Appearance: A mildly hazy gold body that clears up (If you baby it). Nice carbonation to the body that leads to a white rocky head and forms a soapy lace.
Smell: There is a grainy presents with some zest qualities. Biscuits and some floral hop tones.
Taste: It has a sharp taste the hops although this is not really a “hoppy beer” hit you first then the finish is all about the malt.
Mouthfeel: I would say it has a medium body with a refreshing bite and a creamy feel.
Overall: I loved it. It was as it should have been a heavy pils. It was very refreshing
