For our first release we present our take on a Kolsch, a traditional German beer from Cologne, Germany. Built from the ground up with the best North American malted barley and wheat, combined with a touch of German hops, this beer has a slightly citrusy and sweet malty character with only a hint of bitterness. Our special Belgian yeast imparts a signature fruit and floral aroma, making it a refreshing beer for any occasion.

Gold with a sheepish head that disappears quickly. Smells super spicy with some caramel undertones. Tastes like sweet caramel malt and bruised apple with a very dry, very spicy finish. Not sure where a belgian kolsch ends and a belgian pale begins but I see it as purely the latter.

Interesting new brewery, first from them hope to try more.
Tap at rail trail

Very little head fades quickly, murky solid color carrot orange color.

Nose is interesting, some Belgiany notes, earthy funky notes, some tart citrus, orange lemon like, light wheat and light malt, hint yeasty, more wheat, little banana and clove.

Taste is interesting too, lots of wheat and toasty characters, grainy little bread dough, cracked straw wheat, lots of wheat. Then fruity, fruity esters from an interesting Belgian yeast character, juicy Clementine or orange like, orange cream wheat, tart lemon rind, mild phenol spices, with more banana close esters, very hefe like, and a touch yeasty. Finish mild bitterness, mild bubblegum esters, bit fruity orange cream and wheat lingering.

Mouth is med bod, little creamy wheat and decent carb.

Overall it's a nice beer but it's a hefe not a kolsch at all. If this was called a hefe then I would be quite nice, but trying to be a Kolsch it is not even close.
