On tap at the brewery.
2.75/2.75/2.25/3.5/2.75
Incredibly pale with a mild milkiness.
Smells like a kölsch, but with a light tart hint.
And sure enough, it's a sweetish, kind of gross watery-thick lager but with fruit. The kiwi is only the redeeming factor.
Smooth.
Not my style; will not drink again.

On-tap at the brewery.

A: Very slightly hazed pale gold body with a thin cap of fine white foam that settles into a ring and leaves sparse lace. Uninspiring.

S: Biscuity malt, faint fruitiness, and some herbal hops. Pleasant but understated, even for the style. I was certainly expecting more fruit.

T: Malt dominates, with nice solid breadiness being the primary flavor throughout. The kiwi does finally show up on the aftertaste, with thoroughly pleasant results. Too little too late, but still good.

M: Light-to-medium body with lots of creamy carbonation. Great.

O: This was clearly a solid, well-brewed Kölsch, but the fruit addition got my hopes up for something a bit more adventurous. I'd stick with their excellent Blonde for a summer refresher in any case.

Cheers!
