A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow with some brighter yellow highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that reduces to a couple of small thin patches with a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of bready and cereal grain malts along with just a touch of grassy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of cereal grain and bready malts with some lighter notes of lemon citrus and just a touch of apple crispness. There is a light note in the finish of something metallic and just a hint of bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Pretty easy and refreshing, this would be a great beach beer when you are out in the OBX - the hint of lemon makes this one a good thirst quencher.

another new one for me, i decided to bring a few bottles home and try them last night. served cold and poured into a pint glass, consumed on 09/19/2010.

the pour was light amber with loads of carbonation coming up towards the surface. really just very well done. nice head of white caps the top nearly perfectly and smooth lacing coats the sides

light aroma of fresh grass and tons of grains just come through the air lightly. bready with a hints of herbals it just needs that little extra punch to throw it over the top. crisp, clean and light flavor leaves a small dry finish that begs you to drink more.

overall a very solid little beer i would not mind trying again at all.

Bomber poured into a pint glass, it appears a clear light orange color with a thin film of slightly offwhite head. Spotty amount of lace clings to the glassware. Slight hop character in the nose along with a bit of grain. Very clean, crisp and refreshing taste with a bit of grainy sweetness and a crisp slight hop finish. Light body and lively level of carbonation. Lingering faint taste of grains, hops and a touch of sulfur. Lots of active carbonation with this, it would be a pretty decent lawnmower or beach beer. As it warms, more hop character comes out in a grassy note and a bit herbal but nothing overpowering.

A - bright yellow with a thin cap of loose, soft, white head that has decent retention

S - cereal grains, a bit musty

T - cereal grains, lemon, a bit tart, grassy

M - light to medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a light, easy drinking beer that is perfect for hot days. It's a bit fruity and slightly tart, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Poured from a tallboy can into a shaker pint, there is a slight chill haze on an otherwise crystal clear, honey gold coloring with a fluffy, bubbly, off-white head that quickly settles out. Nose of subtle toasted grains, hints of rich butter and caramel, and some floral highlights. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with notes of citrus, caramel, apple, and honey. Very subtle hops bitterness in the backbone, but overpowered by the sweet characteristics. The bod is full, with a subtle carbonation edge. The finish is effervesced and slightly watery at the same time. This gets sugary sweet the more you drink. This misses the style for me.

Starts off real good as a cloudy, orangish hue, darker than expected for a kolsch, w/ great carb leads to frothy head that dies leaving lace patches on top of a good pils malt, peppery and some bitter hop aroma. Light-bodied, smooth, even a touch of creaminess up front but unfortunately the pils malt amd graininess slightly overpower the hops and fruit taste. Basically, a dry beer with a spicy backbite and some sharp citric hops on the backend but just a touch off for my liking of this style. An enjoyable sipper but I hope they tweak the recipe so that some citric hops and maybe a touch of other fruits shine more.

This is my first go-round with Weeping Radish in almost 2 years. The last interactions went, well, poorly. It sounds like the QC issues that plagued them have been resolved, hence this beer in my glass now.

A: The kolsch-style beer is a golden straw color, pale but not pallid. Even cold it projects no haziness in the glass. A sizeable head, nearly two fingers, is slowly bubbling away with thin entrails of lace left behind.

S: So far, so good. The kolsch has a crisp hoppy aroma, pleasantly light with ample malt sweetness.

T: Very nice. The pale malts are biscuity and stand out in each sip. Gone are the off flavors, metals, and general nastiness, replaced by an honest-to-goodness kolsch. The biscuity malts has fruity side flavors, a little ripe green apple here and there. Hops are crisp but subtle, out of the limelight that the malts occupy.

M: The kolsch is light, malt-focused with just enough hops to work. The flavors are spot-on and miles away from where Weeping Radish used to be.

D: More, please. This beer makes me want to pick up a bottle of Black Radish and give it a test run again. I'm glad that someone at WR realized that something was epicly wrong and took the proper steps to correct it.

Pours a very cloudy dirty amber with a mostly tight off white head and a few large bubbles. The nose offers some interesting aromas that don't work together well. There is some stale bread, light dough, sulfer seltzer like arome, and bitter fruity hop, bananas and berries but light. The flavor is harsh, it is extremely stale and very dry bread like. The sulfer is still there, the hop presence is the bright point with some juicy citrus in the back but the sulfer and bitterness make it very off putting. the body is light, a hint oily, good carbonation. A little rough, not aweful but a bit bad.

Flavor begins with light malt, ends slightly bitter; no distinct hop flavor; no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

Meh. Not particularly tasty. OK on a hot day.
