Poured out of a bottle, gift from Brent at The House of Brews. Thanks Brent! Poured into my tulip.

A – Almost perfect clarity on the pour. See through all the way with an almost light apple cider like color. Crisp white head that stayed around as a small cap.

S – Very light floral and grassy herbal scent with a mild grain mixed in.

T – Like the nose this has a very smooth grainy taste to start out with a light fruit qualities. Has some apple and white grape flavors. Herbal hops and touch of bittering mixes in. Has a bit of a funk to it but finishes with a spicy and sweet mix.

M – Light bodied and extremely crisp on the palate. Tingly and bubbly.

O – Pleasant surprise here. I was not expecting much but this beer has a nice light and crisp taste that is extremely refreshing. You can drink this all day long and would make an ass kicking brew on a hot summer day. Bring it on.

Pale yellow pour, rich white head at first, pops away in time, but the retention is still decent.
Clean smell of grainy malts and stewed hops, bit of fruit too.
Taste starts with malts, not too syrupy sweet (tho there are some faint corn hints), but balanced with grains and honey. Some apple acidity, pear, a tiny bit of fruity sweetness. Surprising finish, with a nice clear hop presence, spicy, green, a bit floral, decent bitterness.
Light body, somewhat fizzy, hops clean up the unwanted corn in the aftertaste.
Not a run-of-the-mill "Belgian pilsener", but packed with nice hops and balanced.

I had it on tap last Saturday at Sharper Edge in Pittsburgh. There were 2 other Belgium Pils on tap Bavik and Primus ,both of which I've had before and found somewhat typical. The standard and favorite for Belgium drinkers is Jupiter though Stella Artois is the one known best in the USA. I find Belgium Pils to have a clean refreshing finish. They are excellent after a long summer day. These are what American beers would like to be, clean honest brew but without the corn and far more elegant. This Estaminet on the other hand is not like any of the others beginning with a somewhat cloudy straw color and a very different aroma and bouquet. I'm not sure how to describe the taste, it's different but in a pleasant way and I had two.The esters are interesting to say the least. It's a nice diversion from the usual Pils and lager without the hops though without looking I'm not sure. I'm happy to have met this beer and wish I could meet the people behind it's creation. I'd ask them for some yeast because frankly this style I've never tasted.I'm going to the Palm site to find out more.

A: Pale clear gold body with a thin short-lived white head.
S: Biscuity, bread, grassy & fruity nose.
T: Grain, bread & light fruit, grape flavors. Sweet and a bit watery.
M: Smooth light bodied, clean and refreshing with a dry finish.
O: This brew lacks complexity, but is simple, straightforward and refreshing. Decent but far from great.

4.2/5  rDev +22.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: No persistent head, no lacing, clear rings all the way down. Fitting of a clear lager.

S: Vague malt and metal. As good as any bottled lager I've met, but not a standout by any means.

T: Middling sweet, buckwheat honey front, center, and standing tall. Barest hint of a hop finish, a ghost of a bitter note.

M: Crisp and light, a good beverage beer. Sharp enough to stand against even a heavy pizza.

Overall: A fine full lager, suitable for three or four at a run. Good to pound or to sip. A fine all-around beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light gold color with a short lived head. Aroma of stewed hops and sweet grainy malt. In the taste, pilsner malts, euro like malt and aggressive noble hop bitterness. The hop bite dries out the palate. Medium to light bodied with a dry finish. Overall, a decent euro pils.
