Hazy yellow with a fine, frosty head that crawls up the glass with authority. The nose is quite ripe with sugary, candied, dried fruit, gum drops and Haribo candy. There is a faint whiff of alfalfa sprouts too. Rich, full texture is hewn into shape by bitter hops. Big, chewy, rustic flavor featuring notes of lemon, watercress and chervil. Seriously unique Pils.

Quite hazy (bottle conditioned), golden with a creamy 1/4" head that holds excellently and leaves some good lace. The aroma is of a sweetly floral and grassy hop that's lightly backed by malt. Excellent. The body is medium with a very fine and lightly effervescent carbonation that gently caresses the tongue and becomes quite creamy as it warms in the mouth. The flavor starts with a great blend of rich, sweet malt and a unique floral hop flavor that's at least partially from Hallertauer. The sweet malt decreases as it crosses the palate, revealing some more grassy hop flavors and some bitterness. It finishes dry and fairly short with some lingering hop flavor and light bitterness as would be expected of a good pilsener. Very well balanced, allowing the malt and hop flavors to remain clear throughout while also giving an enjoyable bitter bite at the start, and maintaining enough bitterness to keep it dry and refreshing. Extremely well done, however, I must note that it's important to obtain a fresh sample. This is not a huge seller in the U.S., and I've had many old & damaged bottles before I came across this fresh one. I should also note that all Merchant Du Vin products are conspicuosly absent of any dating. (Sorry Charlie, but you know it's true).

Hazy yellow in hue even before the yeast sediment is poured. The billowy, white, attractive persistent head leaves a good lace. Sweet honey and cracker notes in aroma, followed by a pleasantly herbal noble hop nose. Sharp, prickly carbonation and hop bitterness hits the palette at first, but fades quickly leaving bready notes and fairly high malt sweetness for style. Slightly musty, hay - like flavors are perceptible as well. Hop flavor is green and herbal. The finish is just a touch bitter, but honey - like sweetness lingers long after the sip. This is an odd pilsner but an interesting beer... malt sweetness is too dominant. It's definitely a beer worth trying, however.

4.29/5  rDev +12%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: Sleek brown euro style 17 oz bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Hazy yellow straw with a dense compact well formed white head.

Smell: Malty and grainy (bread like), very mild tartness with hints of fruit and lemon.

Taste: Sparkling wine like carbonation makes for a very crisp mouth feel. Very rich in flavour with lots of grain on the tongue, some spicy and fruity flavours from hops and esters merely add to this complex brew. Hops do a little more than balance and leaves a touch of herbal flavour. More on the dry side leaving little sweetness and a earthy yeast taste tags along ... finish is long lasting with grain and residual hop flavour.

Notes: Very interesting with raw complexities ... packed with flavour and could be paired with numerous types of foods, Pan-Asian worked best.
