Once we lost a quarter of the beer we served it into a flute glass. We have a cloudy, straw golden pour with at least an inch of bubbly white head that reduces down and omits thick sudsy lace trails down the glass. The nose presents a bready, almost sweet Belgian-like yeast character with undertones of citrus, banana, spice, candied lemon and grain make for a lovely, aromatic aroma. Highly charged carbonation with a fullish mouth feel. Quite fizzy, but that does seem to settle once the beer warms. Light citrus notes, banana and a slight funky yeasty spiciness initiates the palate. A mildly assertive bitterness gives the mid a drying effect which leads on to a dry, spicy hop finish. A decent malt backdrop is also tasted which does give nice balance to the flavour profile. The 5.5% ABV hands a nice little buzz to this pilsner but itt’s well disguised among the very Belgian inspired characters. This is a really good pilsner, probably one of the better ones that we’ve ever had the joy of reviewing. Credit to this Kiwi brewery, excellent beer.
