Light gold, dissipating white head. Nice aroma, bready, hops, yeast, bit floral. On the thin side, light, a bit frivolous, but tasty, leans bitter. Wouldn’t be averse to sessioning it.

Pours hazy gold with a lasting white head. Aroma is yeast and faint citrus. Taste is citrus, some sweet maltiness, and some spice. Like a mild hefe. Very refreshing and good overall.

pour is a dirty pale yellow with some sentiment floating around and a thin white head. You can smell the kolch notes, sweet caramel and roasted nuts, faint Saison yeast and spice. Sweet citrus and orange peel. The taste is more simple and a touch empty. Fair Saison yeast, very light spice, almost none of the malt notes, coriander, orange peel. Highly carbonated, fairly dry, firm body.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is much more Hefe than Kolsch. Big fluffy yeast with light bubblegum and a touch of clove over bready pale malts. The flavor is spicy and very yeasty with great bubblegum notes and a light floral like hoppiness on the finish. Nice length to the finish for such a light beer. Medium bodied with a nice fluffy texture and fine fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice refreshing beer. Not really thought of as a Kolsh as far as my rate is concerned though. In that case it would be a pretty horrible Kolsch.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slightly stale, clean aroma. Body of a koelsch with Belgian sensibilities-very floral for a koelsch, but mild-moderate on an absolute scale. Lingering banana on the tongue. Overall, not a classic koelsch, but not bad, either.

Lighter than the stouts I tend to favor, but still had some qualities that I liked. Not my favorite.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. As "Saint Arnold Centenni*ale Blonde Ale". Hazy yellow-ish golden color. Yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Sweetish fruity flavor with light spiciness. Light-medium-bodied. A Kolsch?! Really?!

This beer has a Old Milwaukee appearance, yet it has some hints of Belgian Ale taste. I am not sure I could drink it all day but it might work in a pinch
