3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale, hazy color with huge head. Aroma has lemon notes, something like a witbier. Taste starts really fresh, with some dough and slightly tart, lemony notes. Carbonation is on the high side and the body is quite light. Overall it’s a decent, refreshing beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Sweetish, yeasty aroma, grass hops. Cloudy dark yellow color, white head. Flavor is light sweet with some hints of malt and caramel, also some acid, shy fruitiness, grass hops and light citrus peel bitterness. Not very interesting.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Kind hazy with a big foamy head. There’s a ton of sediment in the bottle so once it’s emptied the beer becomes almost murky. Aroma grainy and sweet. Heavy, without the crispness you’d expect from a kolsch. Taste follows aroma, grainy and sweet, way too heavy and lacking crispness. This is not kolsch, and not good.

33cl bottle. Clear light amber colour with almost no head. Caramel, sweet and yeast in the aroma. Soft carbonation and light body. Taste is light but sweet. Overall, a boring but drinkable beer.

Loving it... once my sister brought this beer for me from the Netherlands to Spain where I live.. I enjoyed it so much that I started to look for sales points around my location and luckily I found a shop about 1.5 hours drive from my place but it is worth it !

Thanks for sharing! Sampled draft @ De Prael during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. Sampled as “Bitter”. Hazy orange, quite hazy, small white head. Nose is boring, sugar, malt, yeast, no complexity,… Taste is dull plaster, BE-like, big yeast, more sugar, dull sugary orange,… Yeasty, bland, overly yeasty & sugar etc. Didn’t pick this one for a Kölsch, tasted quite Belgian for me in a bad way.

According to the brewer, this is ’in the German style’ - not in any one I am familiar with. There’s way too much yeast in the bottle, which makes it look muddy and gives it a mealy taste. Not a success, though it may be better on tap. I liked the old label better than the new one.

[Bottle (330ml) at De Ysbreeker, Amsterdam, May 15] 3rd rating of my Paris/Amsterdam trip. Pours a deep clear orange with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of sweet fruit, citrus and grassy hops. Flavour follows the aroma and has a decent amount of hops, and like the name suggests, it tastes like a bitter Blonde. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer.
