This unfiltered and unpasteurized pilsner comes from an unlikely source, one of Belgium’s premier sour ale brewers, Drie Fonteinen. Beersel Lager pours a touch more amber than the typical pilsner, with a big white pillow Belgian head and tons of carbonation. The nose has hints of baked bread you would expect from a balanced lager, and a nice aroma of tartness from the Belgian yeast. Sipping this beer brings similar interesting combinations of flavor, a bit of lactic sourness, a nice bitter bite of hops, and a smooth, bready body throughout.
