Pours a clear golden color, visible carbonation and a light foam head. Retention is average, according to style, as it soon dissipates but leaves some lacing.
I'm loving the aroma for its emphasis on fruit. I'm getting lots of green grape and honey malt sweetness. Later, I also detect fruit punch, apples and pear.
Medium bodied with a nice slick and full dry malt mouthfeel. The carbonation has a nice tingle. Fruity with notes of grape, apple, pear, citrus, yet, with a pleasant dryness that makes for good drinkability. The finish has a significantly bold hops kick that adds bitterness. The hops also produce a significant peppery prickliness in the taste. Towards the end, the malt flavors make a final push for dominance and yield a silky mouthfeel with a chalky finish.
A delightful example of the style. I must have again!

Hoppy for a kolsch; more of an IPL really. Has a soft edge of prickly pear fruit.

Crisp and clean drinking, but the hop bitterness lingers past the finish to its detriment.

C+ / ABOVE AVERAGE

The beer comes in a straw color, gentle haze.

The beer hits with grains, lightly sweet, grassy, lemon, light fruitiness, more light crackery malts. More grains. Medium minus moutfeel. A great drinking kolsch that I find preferable to their pils.
