Poured from the bottle into a Gaffel stange.

Deep cloudy tangerine orange, to a murky yellow. Nice sized and slow rising carbonation, quite plentiful actually, arriving to a real big bright white and frothy head, with lots of soapy big laced bubbles as it settles and large retention.

Interesting aroma. Hints of lime and fruit with a nice character, but a sticky yeast quality and pasty sense slightly. Light hints of white grape a bit with not much bready character. Not too bad.

Palate is surprisingly odd. A decent mouthfeel but with a weird and somewhat empty taste. Hints of mushy grapefruit juice and perhaps a bit of lime. Not particularly hinting of classic malt style. A strange twinge of metals which works nicely in the grapefruit angle. This seem odd but comes with some surprising appeal, but is really missing some of that classic bakery density, but comes with a sort of flattened density.

A decent drinkable beer, but other than a good fruity aroma this really doesn't remind me of a Kolsch but of a very unique beer at least.

Aroma is rather unpleasant. Very mild flavor, initially slightly sweet. Quickly gives way to wheaty lager notes without much bitterness or flavor on the finish. I enjoy a more hoppy, flavorful beer.

Citrusy nose, hazy, unfiltered... a nice break from the 946 IPAs out there, and all of the Holiday beers.
