Very Good
CabanaCabana
Notes: A wheat pils brewed specifically for the good weather. Subtly hopped with an atypical blend of Styrian Goldings and German Saphir. A nice dry and pale beer with notes of kaffir lime, lime blossoms, and limeade.

Very solid Pilsner with a golden color to it. Smells of wheat and dough and tastes terrific with good maltiness. Some citrusy lime notes in this brew.

Thanks to rudzud, canned 6/26/19
Pours a light medium fizzy head with medium retention and very little lacing, very clear golden pilsner color

Nose plenty of pilsner malt, grainy sweet, doughy, light corn, faint sulfur, into light herbal floral hops

Taste starts intense, fairly sweet with big grainy sweet malt, doughy bready, cracker, tons of pilsner malts, with very light corn, medium bitterness with medium higher herbal slight spicy and fruity hops, finishes with a little sulfate and crisp bitterness, soft lager center, lingering mild spicy floral hop

Mouth is medium bod, medium carb, soft lager crisp bitter bite on the finish

Overall pretty nice, well done German pilsner, pretty clean other than mild dms from the pilsner malts and light sulfates for crisp hop bitterness on the finish, both acceptable, good balance, enjoyable

Received in a trade for some Genghis Khan peppers.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a good two finger head that leaves nice lacing and a thick billowy head.. Quite nice.

S - Aromas of big wheat notes, flashes of doughy malts and pilsner malts. Just a touch of hops and a little bit of malt sweetness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with excellent wheat flavour, just slightly spicy, good pilsner malts and flashes of sweetness. Very nice light grassy and floral hops. Finish is just slightly, slightly bitter.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, bright, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this was a very solid pilsner. The wheat was quite nice here as was the slightly bitter finish. Quite the enjoyable pilsner on a warm summer night.

Serving Type: Can

Cloudy, cold haze?, straw yellow, thin bright white head that dissipates to a film. Moderate lacing

Smells of biscuit, grass, subtle hops

Tastes of slightly sweet wheat, slightly bitter rinds, bready, and slightly dry finish. Lingering bread-iness. A bit brighter than typical Getman Pilsner

Clean, relatively full mouthfeel, nice carbonation

Perfect compliment to the upcoming 4th of July celebration

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a clear light orange, with a small head, and some nice sheets of lacing.

Smells like fruity wheat, orange, grass, with a huge floral aroma as well.

I'm fairly sure this is a pilsner with wheat, and the wheat gives off a killer earthy and slightly fruity sweet flavor to the spicy and grassy hop flavor. This is definitely a bit more fruity than your typical traditional pilsner, as pilsners don't usually contain wheat. But it's definitely clean, crisp, and very much in line with Suarez Family consistently does very well.

This has a very crisp mouthfeel, with a perfectly clean fermention at play here- no off flavors at all. It's got a normal level of carbonation.

Suarez Family is making some of the absolute best lagers in the United States today- they're all so clean, crisp, and incredibly well brewed. Pilsner is slowly becoming my new style obsessions thanks to this awesome new brewery.
