draft - Pours a dark, cloudy yellow with a moderate, foamy head. The aroma is of citrus fruit and spices and it has a taste to match, along with some yeast flavor. The spices were considerably less subtle than in most wheats I’ve had, but that was a good thing as they added nicely to the flavor. The finish was refreshing. This ale is very interesting. I didn’t know what to do with the plastic stir stick/pestle that was included in the glass as I didn’t care to mash anything up, but the beer was good.

Draft @ Sunset Grill 8/5/06. Pours a dark hazy yellow color with a bright white foamy head. Nose is heavy on bananas and various spices that include coriander and pepper with hints of orange rines. Palate is full and quenching but maintains a brisk crispness. flavor is heavy on bananas and oranges with some light lemon hints and a peppery/ spicy note.

Sampled at the brewery. As I’ve never had a koggen before, I have nothing to compare it to. Nevertheless, it is a sour lemony beer that reminded me of a watered down kindl weiss.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 Sampled at the brewery, pale milky yellow gold hue, with a frothy white head, the nose has a nice spiced notes of coriander, citrus fruits, like oranges, manderins, and a wheaty aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty character, spicy coriander accent, with a fruity orange peels, leading towards a smooth fruity side and spicy zesty finish.

I had a small sample of this at the brewery. The tap handle said "Boston Beer Company Koggen...Hefe-weizen" This beer is not great. Looks like a hefe with the pale cloudy gold. But there is a sourness to it that is undesireable. Watery but just not appetizing.

Had it on the tour also. Supposedly, it’s an "unfinished" beer that you’re supposed to add your own flavors to (according to the tour guide). The guide showed us the smahser you’re supposed to use to infuse your fruit, or whatever, to the beer. It’s not bad, and its a decent idea, but the last thing i want to do is be mashing something into the bottom of my glass at the bar. That’s just me.
