Je n’ai propabalement pas goûté à *toutes* les bières de Kruhnen mais, de celles que j’ai goûtées, c’est la première qui ne contient pas ce côté épicé assez particulier. Et, franchement, ça fait du bien ce changement chez Kruhnen! Vive la nouveauté!

La Kruhnen Kölsh est assez mince, assez légère, mais se boit très bien. Le petit côté surette est très dosé, mais aide certainement à l’ensemble. Bref une bonne bière d’été, raffraichissante, mais qui gagnerait à avoir plus de "kick". Un 1-2% d’alcool supplémentaire ne pourrait pas nuire à ce niveau. Bonne continuation Kruhnen!

rejtable (2311) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
Pours slightly cloudy dark straw no head and no lacing. Not a pretty beer to look at. Nose is fruity and straw. Taste is very fruity for what I would have expected, lors of peach and some grassy bitterness. Faste med/Lichten sweet light bitter. Light/mef body with lively carbonation.

simardsam (261) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Dorée aux reflets orangés, trouble, avec un col de mousse très mince et éphémère. Nez fruité, de banane et de clou de girofle. Goût légèrement acidulé, fruits jaunes, de grains et minéral en finale.

Stoned99 (1240) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Flaveurs d’ici. Thanks Jo. Aroma: cereal, spices, clove. A little earthy too. App: hazy pale with no head. Taste and Palate: thin body, soft - almost carbonation and tiny acidity finish. Watery. Overall: Too watery, body too thin, no carbonation, no funk...no fun to drink. Didn’t enjoy it

Pour is orangey-gold with a thin head that disappears like a puddle in the hot sun. Nose is sort of fruity/earthy/spicy. Taste is sort of sweet and sour with a surprising bit of bitterness to the finish. Reading through some reviews below, apparently this isn’t really a kolsch. I sure as hell don’t have the knowledge to make that claim. But I did find it pretty tasty

Pours hazy golden with a small white top. Aroma is banana, clove and cereal grains. Taste is a hair funky, banana and clove. I’ve been told that this is a great example of the Kolsch but this is not a textbook Kolsch, more of a hybrid Kolsch and saison.

Couleur dorée avec un col blanc qui se dissipe assez rapidement. Aromes de céréales,fruits jaunes, un petit coté surette. Correct sans plus...

probstblueribbon (3719) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
Bomber from Broue Ha Ha, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Murky light golden with a decent white head. Aroma: Grainy Pils malt, a fair bit of sulphur, a little fruity, herbaceous and a touch spicy (hops), some more-refined light malt. Palate: Medium body, medium+ carbonation. Flav.: Fruity like a Blonde Ale, a bit grainy from the Pils malt, a touch woodsy and spicy, a bit of wet bread dough and yeast; dry with limited bitterness and a bready, malty, lightly fruity/yeasty finish.

Judged strictly as a “beer” it is affable. Style-appropriate elements that are too prominent for the style. Since we aren’t getting all BJCP up in here, I will score this as a pleasant beer.

pours hazy very pale yellow with a small white cap, reviving and leaving few lacing traces. lean pale peppery cereals, citrus, peppery wheat and yeast, very few - yet present - phenolic esters, but also nice spiciness, some grassy nobleness. average carbonation, light body, relatively dry and faintly tart grassy-spicy-peppery finish. within my short experience with koelschs - and on north american ground mostly, i find this beer quite interesting even though it does not correspond to the idea that i have of a refined kolsch.
