Poured on tap into a snifter.
Real watery pale body on appearance. Washed out lemon yellow color and cloudy, with a faint creamed off white head.
Nose is ridiculously hop forward. Huge notes of pineapple and tropical juice. Some hints of spice herbal hop quality, and some minor wine aromatics, but the over pumped no traditional hops over run, and this smells more like Hawaiian fruit punch than beer, and a real ridiculous one at that.
Palate comes forward with hardly any malt or bready backbone. Mid palate and aftertaste awashes in tropical fruit and a real wet chalky body. Huge amounts of club soda carbonation, giving a real papery crispness, almost touching hot pepper, and exaggerating the minerality. Very light but ridiculously aggressive.
So where's the bakery malt and fruity ester wine like goodness on this? This comes off nothing more than an overly hopped up brew trying to mask a bunch of faults, and if there is a Kolsch in here somewhere I sure as heck can't find it. It's alright on a hop angle, but very misplaced and clashing.
