a series of beer i keep buying, and just adore, if as much for the idea of estate beers as for the beers themselves sometimes. kolsch never really gets me off, only occasionally, but the addition of this honey makes this one really nice. its super light, pale almost white straw color, with a slurpee looking white head. the nose is really lemony, almost at the expense of honey, malt is extraordinarily light, minimal flavor and feel from it. the honey is more apparent in the taste, right up front where malt would normally be. some sweetness, its not dried out all the way, which probably saves the flavor. about halfway through the lemon kicks in. i have no idea if there is lemon in this or not, but wow is there a zesty citrus finish on this thing. cuts through the honey sweetness. carbonation is soft and the beer is expansive on the palate, despite being all day light. what i like most about it is the idea of homegrown ingredients, but the beer itself is also pretty darn yummy, just right for summer, and a cool continuation of the series. definitely worth picking up, and it was a beauty from the tap.

22oz bottle, poured into a glass. The body has a light gold color with a small thin head. The smell has a sweet and grassy smell to it. The taste has that great kolsh flavor with a nice hint of honey. It also has a good bite to it. Mouthfeel is good and overall a good beer.
