Purchased in Amsterdam, March 2007. Kölsch ? If by Kolsch, they mean, yeast, weird, saison, then yes. Either this was hopeless infected or it is in no way a Kölsch. I’m not even sure it is a lager. Sour aroma with brett, wild yeast, and wildflowers. Flavor of a yeasty saison, fairly dry and moderately hopped. Some pepper and barnyard? Did I say lots of yeast? Looks very good, cloudy orange and a tall, rocky white head. I wish I had access to their other beers.

ALLOVATE (2412) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2013
The epitome of greatness this one produces up in the glass; all three inches of rocky Belgian foam, held aloft for the length to daub a thick and messy lace. The body a well conditioned sunny yellow; quite bright before the yeast goes on in. Fresh, ripe pale citrus dominates the nose over inklings of caramelised stonefruit, peach and apricot - just screams out ’quaff me’ like something out of a Charles Dodgson novel. Creamy in texture, soft and supple upon the palate with a quenching fruity and dry finish. Light malt base, grainy and cereal-like holds in well amongst the fruity esters. Pineapple, and peach and apricot again with a lime and lemon zest back end and moderately bitter fruit peel swallow. Yeast adds depth to this, I don’t know how they went about it but this is boldly fruity like it was warm fermented. A mouthful of wonderfully balanced flavours and an aroma that speaks volumes. I wouldn’t batter an eyelid to drinking this one all afternoon, and then the next and the next..... A delicious brew that is more Belgian pale than Kölsch as the label suggests. Lovely!!!

I had this one on draught at De Prael. Really like this beer, hoppy flavor, my favorite Prael beer so far.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Thanks to JK for sharing. Pours a nice hazy orangish color, with a huge white head. Very yeasty, sour, earthy, peachy, dusty nose. Very unique flavor with a good dose of carbonation that make it taste almost like a saison. Nice spicy, earthy funky flavor. Very unique which makes me question the style. Tipicity aside this is pretty nice.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Thanks to JK for sharing. Cloudy orange with plenty of head. Funk and yeast on the fainlty sour nose. Holy saison city in the body. Lightly sour again with plenty of funk and light black pepper.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Sampled from a 12-oz bottle, shared by JK. Pours a semi-hazy golden orange brew with a decent white head that has good retention and some awesome lacing. Aroma of tart light fruit, bready malt, some nectarine, white pepper and a touch of yeast. Taste is medium bodied, well carbonated, tart with a character of a decent saison, barnyeard funk and some bready malt. Finish is just as tart as its flavor, with a slight peppery aftertaste. A little spicey for a Kölsch but quite exceptional for a saison.

effervescent transparent gold with thin white head. Nose of pepper, very dusty wheat, pear. Flavor very similar, more pear and apple skin, pepper, light hop bitterness. Small bubbled, lightly effervescent. Nice.

Countbeer (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2011
Draught @ KBC ’11: Small light head on top of a deep dark murky orange colored beer. Smell fruits, abricot, peach, hops and flowers. Taste a good and fruity mix of abricot, peach, sweets, candy, hops, flowers, light bitter and a hint of spices. Sweet aftertaste of fruit and hops. Medium body, low carbo, soft mouthfeel and a light watery texture.
