I believe this is the best Weeping Radish beer. I am a dark beer lover, but their black radish wasn't that great, maybe it had to do with the batch or something..tasted metallic. Almost seemed like a production issue. But anyways, I like Kolschs, so it was good to give this one a try.

Purchased at Food Lion at Food Lion in Emerald Isle, NC.

Smell is a little hoppy, sweet, grassy.

Taste is a little sweeter than other Kolschs. Very crisp, with a bit of apple. Some lemon

Mouthfeel isn't that great. Nice, but not enough body.

With everything said, it is a pretty good beer. Rather unique.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly bronzed sunny-golden-yellow color, total clarity, and a head that is white but wispy, dying down quickly. Leaves small vertical splats of lace on the glass.

Smell is mostly that not-unappealing metal-meets-bread vibe of typical German lagers of various sorts. A kind of sulfur-ish element with that white bread/biscuit graininess, and a slight hint of white grape.

It doesn't taste quite as nice as it smells, lacking depth and certainly lacking the kind of pleasing bitterness of an authentic German kolsch. It's nice enough though, bready but light in the malt department, pils-like and lemony in the hops area, with a dab of white grape juice in there. Feels good enough, amply carbonated and remarkably slick, just about right for this kind of beer without wowing or anything. Finishes sort of dry and metallic.

This is quite okay. Goes down nice and easy on a hot, humid day, but it's not gonna be anyone's best introduction to this oft-brewed, rarely-nailed style. Pretty much gotta go to the fatherland for that.

A- Poured a clear yellow/ orange color. Three plus fingers of clean white head. The head stayed very long than subsided to a thin layer of bubbles, with no lacing at all.

S- Grassy hops, citrus and grains as soon as the top came off. After the pour, some nice mild spice, too.

T- The grassy hops shine at the start. The end is more of the citrus and malts. No bites or bitterness. I couldn’t detect any of the metallic finish others have mentioned.

M- Very light body and good carbonation.

D- After a ton of odd jobs around the house, on a very hot, humid day this was just what I wanted. So refreshing I wanted more. I guess I’ll just need to get back to NC area for more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - bright yellow with a thin cap of loose, soft, white head that has decent retention

S - cereal grains, a bit musty

T - cereal grains, lemon, a bit tart, grassy

M - light to medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a light, easy drinking beer that is perfect for hot days. It's a bit fruity and slightly tart, but enjoyable nonetheless.

This is my first go-round with Weeping Radish in almost 2 years. The last interactions went, well, poorly. It sounds like the QC issues that plagued them have been resolved, hence this beer in my glass now.

A: The kolsch-style beer is a golden straw color, pale but not pallid. Even cold it projects no haziness in the glass. A sizeable head, nearly two fingers, is slowly bubbling away with thin entrails of lace left behind.

S: So far, so good. The kolsch has a crisp hoppy aroma, pleasantly light with ample malt sweetness.

T: Very nice. The pale malts are biscuity and stand out in each sip. Gone are the off flavors, metals, and general nastiness, replaced by an honest-to-goodness kolsch. The biscuity malts has fruity side flavors, a little ripe green apple here and there. Hops are crisp but subtle, out of the limelight that the malts occupy.

M: The kolsch is light, malt-focused with just enough hops to work. The flavors are spot-on and miles away from where Weeping Radish used to be.

D: More, please. This beer makes me want to pick up a bottle of Black Radish and give it a test run again. I'm glad that someone at WR realized that something was epicly wrong and took the proper steps to correct it.

another new one for me, i decided to bring a few bottles home and try them last night. served cold and poured into a pint glass, consumed on 09/19/2010.

the pour was light amber with loads of carbonation coming up towards the surface. really just very well done. nice head of white caps the top nearly perfectly and smooth lacing coats the sides

light aroma of fresh grass and tons of grains just come through the air lightly. bready with a hints of herbals it just needs that little extra punch to throw it over the top. crisp, clean and light flavor leaves a small dry finish that begs you to drink more.

overall a very solid little beer i would not mind trying again at all.

This one's for you Andy!

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of grainy malts, some breadiness, grassy hops and perhaps subtle notes of lemon.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some grainy/bready malts, a touch of grassy hops and some faint lemon.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by decent flavors and aromas.

Serving type: can

A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow with some brighter yellow highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that reduces to a couple of small thin patches with a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of bready and cereal grain malts along with just a touch of grassy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of cereal grain and bready malts with some lighter notes of lemon citrus and just a touch of apple crispness. There is a light note in the finish of something metallic and just a hint of bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Pretty easy and refreshing, this would be a great beach beer when you are out in the OBX - the hint of lemon makes this one a good thirst quencher.

Poured from a tallboy can into a shaker pint, there is a slight chill haze on an otherwise crystal clear, honey gold coloring with a fluffy, bubbly, off-white head that quickly settles out. Nose of subtle toasted grains, hints of rich butter and caramel, and some floral highlights. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with notes of citrus, caramel, apple, and honey. Very subtle hops bitterness in the backbone, but overpowered by the sweet characteristics. The bod is full, with a subtle carbonation edge. The finish is effervesced and slightly watery at the same time. This gets sugary sweet the more you drink. This misses the style for me.
