Thanks to Sammer for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat and lemons with a tad bit of tartness. The flavor is more of the same with the tartness still being present. The amount of tartness in the beer (much less than in a sour ale or Berliner Weiss) makes the beer dry and very drinkable. I also get some yeast in the flavor. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure if the beer was as the brewer intended, but regardless, it was very nice.

Picked this up in a flip top bottle from Market of Choice in Eugene, Oregon.

Before I poured I could see a nice, thin layer of yeast settled on the bottom of the bottle--a positive sign of it being unfiltered and unpasteurized!

A- Pours a nice golden yellow with a foamy white head. Not a lot of lacing, but the head retention was moderate. Slight yeasty haze in the glass.

S- Smell is lemony tart/sour, very subtle and light bread and yeast.

T- Light wheat malt sweetness followed by some of the lemony tart/sourness that was on the nose and a gentle balance of hop bitterness to finish it off.

Mouthfeel - even carbonation but not too light.

Overall- I found this beer to be very impressive on it's own for drinkability and according to style. Probably VERY slightly more sweet than dry. This is a great summer drink with no detectable off flavors and a pleasant balance of delicate sweet malt, slightly sour smell and taste, and hops bitterness to finish. Nothing overbearing about it, making it a great example of a session beer, even at 5.2% abv.

4.28/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Light yellow. Clear save for the sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Low foam with a few sticky dots. Points lost for the dead yeast at the bottom.

S: Cloves, lime, lemon and tart green apple. Lots of tanginess and very fruity. White bread yeasty.

T: Strong green apple with a little lemon. Tart and lactic with still a balancing sweetness. Slight creaminess with a mild mineral note. Again, slight bread yeast notes. No hint of giminess to th yeast.

M: Phenomenal. Each sip leaves me begging for more. The sourness leaves the palate dry, puckered and salty leaving you wanting more. Almost zero aftertaste; finishes super clean.

O: Wow. This is what a Flanders red tastes like in light beer form. The sourness is amazing, it's light and delicate and very full flavored.

9.4 oz bottle

Appearance- Pours a cloudy peach with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell- lemon/citrus, grains, yeast, clove, spiciness

Taste- Very similar to the aroma. Lemon/citrus, grains, yeast, clove and spiciness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation.

Overall- A unique twist to the Kolsch style. An easy drinking, crisp brew for the summer.

My local sandwich shop had put this on tap, and it was my first exposure to Captured by Porches. It is unique and delicious, and made me want to try other beers by the company. I would recommend it to anyone who likes beer. It is cloudy as hell, and by no means a (by formal definition) "kolsch." If you begin thinking of a Harpoon UFO Hef, and then substract some grain, add more complexity to the body, and some additional sweetness pockets, that starts to get to an appropriate description. At least, a very American take on a Kolsh. In my personal opinion, this is the flagship offering for CBP.
