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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fraiche et sèche !
Belle blonde voilée au col cremeux persistant. Les fruits sont de sortie, citron, mirabelles. L’attaque est fraiche et un poil piquante mais le final sur l’amertume est plutot sec et tiens longtemps en bouche.

I loved the way this beer looked--a murky, yellow mess of a beer that promised a lot of yeastiness. The aroma was mild, not especially effervescent, but the flavor drove hard with a huge bite of spice, clove and a dash of pepper. The bar I was at described this as a wheat beer and grouped it with Hoegaarden. I can see the resemblence, only this is Hoegaarden on steroids. I got that kind of tonic water carbonation in the mouth that lends to sensation of saltiness. Good beer. (on tap, Lowlander, London)
