L: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a golden yellow color and a hazy texture. There was a small amount of creamy, bright white head that lasted an average amount of time. Good lacing.

S: A decent, but not powerful, aroma of hops, malt, citrus, yeast, and wheat.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of citrus fruit (lemon, orange), a tinge of yeast, a slight grassy quality, a fair shot of malt, some hops, and a bready quality. A solid enough flavor that seems to get better as it goes on. Oddly, it's a bit thin and watery at first, but then levels out into a sweet, malty palate. Not bad.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a zesty finish. Light-bodied.

O: This beer certainly has its flaws, but ultimately it works. Drinkable, but nothing spectacular.

Poured to a tumbler glass.

A: The body is bright yellow and hazy. The head is white, it's half a finger thick but shows good retention and lacing.
S: The aroma is yeasty and malty, but there's in the back a very small hint of citrus. Probably some cool hops were used here.
T: The taste has a small citric touch of blood oranges and lemon zest, and then finishes with the usually empty and minimally bitter finish of a pilsner. Cool innovation on the beginning of the sip.
M: Body is low. Carbonation is high and almost perfect. Bitterness is low but it dries out the mouth a bit.
O: It's a good pilsener due to the twist on the taste using citrus but nothing remarkable.

White head. Golden straw yellow. On tap at the hatt.

Bready and malty with earthy hops. Biscuit with a touch of pine. Ends with a floral bitterness.

Light bodied. Okay but not my favorite pilsner. Worth a try.

Pours a hazy, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of wheat, pale malt, slight Euro yeast, hint of sulfur, hint of caramel malt, hint of grass, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a German Pilsner. Mouth feel is harp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a distinct dryness. Tastes of hint of sweet malt, pale malt, hint of hops, hint of caramel malt, slight Euro yeast, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Pours a completely unfiltered color, with a small head, immediately collapsing to a bubbly lacing.

Smells of rich, bready wheat, together with a lime note and marzipan. Has a pleasant soft yeast sourness above these aromas adding to the lime, evoking the impression of this being a very smooth drinking beer.

Has a higher carbonation, which is entirely entangled into the beers profound wheat qualities, leading to a very soft mouthfeel with a refreshing quality to it.

Tastes of so much lime, the aromas didn't reveal these at all. Packs a well build hop punch, hitting the palate at the same time as wheat does its work, smoothing out the taste, creating a pleasant balance. Lime goes all the way in this, while never unbalanced, it is allowed to blend into soft wheat, warm toffee and coppery carbonation bubbles at the end, providing a great depth of flavors while remaining easy drinkable. During the finish, wheat and bread prevail among an aqueous quality, joined by a very late, pleasant dryness.

This is certainly a unique approach for a Pils, very headstrong and still focussed. One might argue that it is closer to a pale ale rather than to a Pils, which might be true, if it wasn't for the soft mouthfeel, resulting from the smooth combination of an aqueous quality, wheat and hay.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: cloudy, silvery-gold hue with a thick finger of frothy white foam. Not a bad look overall, but way too cloudy for a Pilsner.

Smell: lightly sweet and grainy with a big, fresh, green noble-hop aroma. Fantastic hops for the style.

Taste: beautifully delicious grassy green hops with a somewhat grainy, yeasty foundation. I kind of love this.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and very satisfying creaminess.

Overall: it doesn't look the part for the style, but its aroma and flavor are especially heightened and delicious. Fantastico.

Dark golden pour, hazy, with a dense but thin head. Kind of smells like a pilsner, but with citrus and wheat thrown into the mix. Lemon, lemon zest, wheat and yeast taste. Very drinkable and refreshing, with a light body, medium carbonation and a citrusy bitter aftertaste.
