So today I started at the store, over 750 beers
!!!! I think theres other stuff too, wine or something.
I tried to decide how best to share my new experiences with you fine folks, so here it is. Beer tastings with unpredictable regularity!
Tonight I have picked three pilsners, or Pils, that I have never tried.
The first is Bavik Pils from Belgium @ 5.2% Alc by Vol
It has a very clean, refreshing taste. The first flavor notes start out with a dominent lemon flavor, more citrus, followed by hints of clove, mint, banana and some sulfur. The aroma has a bit of vanilla, and flower blossoms, it reminds my of my aunts garden in Smithtown on Statin Island, roses, some jasmine, and fresh cut hey. The finish is smooth and semi-sweet, semi-dry.
Definately a thirst quencher, although it lacks the hop bite that other Belgian Pils, most notably Stella Artois, have in spades it's definately proper.
Brewed in Bavikhove, West Flanders by the Brabandere family. Other beer produced by this fourth-generation family-owned brewery are Wittekerke and Petrus, most famous being the Petrus Oud Bruin.
Look for two more reviews tonight, EKU Pils from Germany and Czechvar (aka Budvar) from the Czech Republic
