This beer is supposed to beer a mix between a champagne wine and regular beer, but except for the yeast flavor and the bottle type, i really didn't taste the link with a 'champagne'. It is a decent blond beer, with a very strong carbonation where the yeast flavor and smell (champagne yeast) is very dominant.

Bought at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

As is the style - highly carbonated, had to wait a bit for it to settle. But well worth the wait. The dry hopped flavor is really on show, bringing out a character not unlike a double IPA. Definitely recommended if you have not tried this style.

States best before "DL 109/112 B102B03". Whatever that means.

A: Pours a super cloudy gold with a lots of sediment. Enormous frothy white head. Head fades slowly, leaving a nice island behind. Spotty little thin chunks of lacing.

S: Grassy notes. Light, crackery malt. Some tart grape skin.

T: Again, grassy up front with lemons. Sharp, cracker-like malt. Has light tart components, again like a green grape skin. Not sour, just a little tart and sharp. A little honey in there. Kind of a dry, yeasty finish with a little pear, almost typical of a regular champagne. No real sign of alcohol.

M: Medium bodied, quite airy with good carbonation (of course).

O: Not a bad biere de champagne. It's surprisingly light with hidden alcohol, especially given 12% ABV. Not nearly as good as the Enlightenment Brut I had recently though, I doubt I'd get this one again. This one is a little drier and more like a typical champagne, I will say.
