Cask at The Bottle Shop on Greenville. Pours a hazy straw color with a large head. The aroma is big on the apricots and oranges, with a good dose of wheat. The flavor is the same. The citrus and tropical fruit notes are very nice. I also get some wheat and resin, with a low amount of bitterness. I also get a little banana and some pepper and yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Tastes like a White IPA. Very nice.

Drank on tap at the Flying Saucer in Addison.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. It looks about like a hefeweizen should look. The aroma is a mix of bananas and wheat. I don’t get too much clove character. The flavor is heavy on the bananas with a little bit of lemon and some wheat. There are some spices, but it is not quite the clove that you get it other hefeweizens. Medium, very soft mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Saint Arnold Weedwacker has a creamy, medium white head and a hazy, swirling straw appearance, with lots of lacing rings and many little floating particles. Lots of streaming bubbles appear. The aroma is of sugar, corriander, banana, spice, and cake. The flavor is similar- so spicy and rich. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Saint Arnold Weedwacker finishes semi-dry and pretty crisp. Overall, this is a most excellent beer. RJT

Kolsch? I thought was some sort of wheat. Weird. At any rate, it does a good job of being refreshing and flavorful. Notes of citrus, pepper, and some other lightly fruity flavors throughout. Pretty enjoyable on a 90 degree evening...Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

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.

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.

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.
