Overall not bad. Not sure if I'll seek out again because compared to other Belgians it's very uninspiring.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, straw, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, biscuit, light honey, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Czech pilsner style. All around good robustness and balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bordering on a APA, nice hops bitterness, soft on the aroma and a little sharper in the taste. Hazy pale gold with small silky head, citrus notes (mostly grapefruit) take front stage. Dry, but light lingering palate. This is awesome. Not sure if its a pils, but its excellent.
