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.

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.

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin later. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Bready cereal malts, grassy noble hops.

Taste: Bready sweet cereal grains followed by noble grassy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, medium bodied, mild hop bitterness, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Better than most EPL's with none on the skunk aftertaste. I'd have another.
