Poured into an oversized wine glass. Poured a very pale straw, with next to no head, a few small streams of bubbles rose from the bottom. Aroma was a tad of yeast, with a fair bit of wheaty bread. A small bit of lemony sour tart hiding as well. Flavor had a bit of kick up front, but mellowed out nicely, with only slight hoppiness. Very small bit of citrus flavor as well. Felt good in the mouth. A bit of coat, as well as some carbonation that tickled the tongue. Overall a very pleasant summer beer.

Fiddlehead Brewing Company - Arts Riot Kolsch

Look - Vigorously poured into a pilsner glass this brew pours a light pale yellow with a small soapy head that dissipates quickly but leaves tons of lacing.

Smell - Deep yeast with some bubblegum sweet and a little fruitiness. Some smoky aroma is present as well as faint hops and spice.

Taste - Light and crisp with a slight sweet finish that also has an element of tart.

Mouthfeel - Dry, fresh, not at all boozy and terrific drinkability. Light bodied.

Overall - This is a sessionable brew with a well done balance between flavor and drinkability. Definitely recommend.
