Draft in a goblet glass, review from written notes.
Glowing pastel yellow, a thin layer of skim on the surface and a webby collar of lacing hangs around the edges of the glass.

Light barnyard aromas of wild yeast and wet hay, reminiscent of Jolly Pumpkin or Anchorage's Brett forward wild ales. Flavor is lightly tart and grainy, some yeast and fruity white grape traces. Chardonnay, dry floral Brett yeast, dandelions, hay. Crisp and tart, pretty drinkable. Overall an interesting wild twist on the base Kölsch, even if miles away from the traditional style.

First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

Poured a slightly hazy straw yellow with a dense white head that sank to a thin layer but still left some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pale malts, grassy hops, light, indistinct fruitiness. I'm not much of a kolsch dirnker, but this was definitely one of the tastiest ones that I've had. Nice pale biscuity malts, grassy hops, as detected in the nose, fruit skins--apple, peach, white grapes. Light body, crisp, tasty, refreshing. Very nice overall, even if it's not totally my style of choice.
