We pour a crystal clear, pale straw-colored brew. It holds a half finger head of white bubbles, but this dissipates quickly into a bubbly film. Lacing is chunky and spotty. No sediment or haze is noted, and carbonation appears moderate. The nose is strong with metallics, raw macaroni, flour, and clean yeast. Adjuncts are robust. There is a certain peachy fruitiness to the alcohol and the malts with warmth. Finally, there is a musty, cheesiness about it. As we sip, metallics hit first. There is lemon and fresh apple, affording crispness to an otherwise bittering and souring mouth. The malts take over, with adjuncts and steely barley, pulling us through to the middle, where a bittering, metallic booze comes through on a wave of stinging yeast. Very bready and full flavored. The end is a bit milder, with cooled and bitter malts, and some fusel, echoing alcohols. The aftertaste breathes of sour, mashed grain and some metal. That fermented cheese flavor of the nose comes through here, with a bittering synergy with the malts and salt. The body is light to medium, and the carbonation is medium to high, more so than it looks. The feel is a bit watery at times, but the mouth is left coated with a metallic and bitter sheen. There is little slurp, cream, or pop. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks fine.
Overall, the strongest component of this brew was the taste. Judging by the nose, we were expecting something much more bittering, but we got something crisp and relatively well balanced. The flavoring was within the style, but the nose took us for a loop, with a hazy, floury bomb. It just didn’t smell fresh, despite the dating and proper storage. In the end, all of the components could have been better integrated amongst each other, which would have made for a more enjoyable brew.

Picked up a case of these in 8 oz cans, not having tried, hope not to be disappointed, let's give it a whirl. Popping the can top I don't get much of a smell. Reading the label it is made with barely malt and wheat so doesn't look adjunct. Pouring into my handy SAPP I get a bright yellow brew with a big bright white foamy head that tops out the remaining space in the SAPP. On the taste this brew is bitter sweet hopping with a nice maltiness in the background, well in line with what is expected from a typical Dutch brew. Very thirst quenching and tasty and will serve its purpose we'll for what it is intended, a lawn mower brew. Actually a quite good lawn mower brew.
