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

Pours an almost greenish light yellow colour with a big head but no lacing at all. Heavy sourness of citrus and apple in both smell and taste.

Quite a fizzy body with a metallic finish.

Doesn't have much character unlike their Vienna Lager but at least they are trying.

Yellow and pleasantly sparkling in the glass, with a sweet grain/lemon scent. Taste is too much grain, some apple, very sweet, quite spritzy in the mouth, a bit medicinal on the finish. Cheap German Kölsch, me thinks--a nice thing to find in Turkey, but not for the price.

Typically I really enjoy a good Kolsch style beer. These are tasty. When I saw that Taps put one out I figured I'd give it a shot. I know these are usually light on body, color, and mouthfeel. The beer was a little too light though and it was a bit of a bummer. Had the suddle sweetness that is always nice but not much else.

The bottle version has an abv of 4.2%.

Huge starting egg-shell white that settles rockily but without any lace. The broth is greenish, dark straw color. Very mild haze.

Lightly sour aroma of lemon zest; it reminds me of a Saison.

The taste is similar to the smell, which means it's more sour than I would expect for the style. The body is super spritzy, but it is also rich enough to handle it. The aftertaste has yeasty flavor.

3.2/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This is ok, a pretty basic wheat ale/kolsch that really does not live up to its style in my experience but is very much on par with the average US micro/brewpub wheat ale.

Light orange, it has a medium white white head, rather fizzy, that dissipates quickly to a few bubbles.

The aroma is pretty good, pleasant grain, apple, and a little yeast.

The taste is light and the character and feel a bit thin. It has grain and grass and seems slightly alcoholic with a dryish-bitter finish just before a cracker flavour and lingering faint bitterness. It's rather fizzy and a bit weak.
