Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner – Uinta Brewing

9% ABV
Purchased at Alley Katz ($16/25.4 oz. bottle) and served in tulip glasses.

His Notes:

This Imperial Pilsner from Uinta’s Crooked Line series pours a transparent gold with a frothy white head and an alternately sweet and pungent nose of guava and farmhouse funk.  Tilted Smile is crisp and biscuit-like on the first swallow, with some restrained citrus, sharp yeast, and tropical notes on the periphery.  There is a lot more mesmerizing and mysterious Belgian “good funk” here than American pilsner “bad funk”, adding muscle without sacrificing drinkability.  Complex for such a simple brew, Tilted Smile honors the pilsner style by including Saaz hops and real pilsner yeast, yet subverts and expands on it by pushing the flavor profile in the direction of a Belgian pale ale.
