4.45/5 rDev +12.9%
Poured from the bottle into a regular ole pint glass.
A: Pours crystal clear out of the bottle, shifting to a bright yellow, almost some neon green hue shooting through. Really a beautiful color. Just the tiniest bit dusty in the glass. Very short and thin head, but with some lily pads of foam left floating. Almost no lacing.
S: Tons of lemon-limey tang going on here, with a shade of sea water. Definitely a lot of light graininess as well. Like saltine crackers. Floral hops with a sweet coating lazing around in the background. I'd hang this from my rear-view mirror for sure.
T: For me the salinity and minerality really show up front here, briny oysters with a squeeze of lemon. The hops wake up with a spike of bitterness at the back of the throat, and some attendant crisp, dry, prairie grass.. Very low sweetness, that mostly manifests itself in a starchy depth, like a lightly glazed croissant. Elegant and clean.
M: Playful, with carbonation that fluctuates around the palate. A really nice fluid shape that doesn't force itself anywhere or stick around for too long. Has its fun and moves on, for the most part. Almost too ephemeral.
O: This is an outstanding brew, and an exercise in care and subtlety, and it had to be given the transparency of the style and the ease with which it can be flubbed. If you don't like this, then you just don't like Kolschs.

Poured out of a bottle into a glass. Head dissipated extremely quickly, though the appearance stays nice. A definite gradient of gold thinning out toward the bottom of the glass with lots of noticeable carbonation. Like watching a fish tank!
Smells weak but slightly sweet, Belgian-y.
Taste is complex, immediately great. Hits of almost champagney-like grapes (though the carbonation may be fooling with me), mild alcohol notes, tastes extremely clean all the way through the first taste to the aftertaste. Extremely refreshing. Really like this one, especially with waning summer months.

3.2/5 rDev -18.8%
Pours a very pale amber colour with a small white head.
The smell is grainy with just a little hint of bitterness.
The taste is grainy, finishing with a decent amount of bitterness. It's very light and easy drinking.
The mouthfeel is very light with medium carbonation.
This was a very easy drinking beer, a bit light and bland for my tastes though.
