Enjoyed this on-tap at Cookie in Melbourne.

A mint kolsch! Super cool concept!

Poured a hazy blonde with a nice inviting, bubbly head.

A touch of dry summer fields freshly mowed.

Tastes light, refreshing and kissed with a funk. Sorachi Ace giving that clean lemon-grassiness. No mint present except creeping (like a ninja!) through the mouthfeel, it's all feeling rather than flavor.

Overall, I get more of a dumbed-down, clean American-saison flavoring over your typical kolsch. Must be those Japanese hops giving it that dry grass, country-side-farm-house thing while retaining it's delicious & refreshing kolsch drinkability.

Well played.

On tap at the Local Taphouse in Sydney.

Pours a light golden colour, with a decent amount of cloudiness. Head is fine-bubbled and stays pretty solid throughout, although it leaves only minimal lacing. Looks fair.

Fresh on the nose, but rather mild. Minimal spice, with a hint of orange peel, perhaps a twinge of mint giving a fresh, dry and fragrant note.

Taste is lovely, fresh marmalade, mixed with herbal mint. Lightly leavened and spicy. Finish contains a smooth, dry hop-pellet bitterness, but more fresh than true biting bitterness on the finish. Slight herbal and fragrant, perhaps slightly tannic characters. Lovely. Feel is smooth and light.

Very nice drop of beer. Sessionable, drinkable, smooth and light, with lots of good character. Although the flavours are quite different, it reminds me of the profile of the Stone & Wood Pacific Ale. That's no mean thing.
