“Kolsch is a light, crisp ale and when infused with cranberry, it has a refreshing, tart and fruity finish that will pair well with all those things cranberries compliment. Light turkey, stuffing, even pie.”

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this tonight at Whole Foods Boise... Apparently this will see cans shortly. Pours a hazy orangish pink.... good white head with decent lacing. Served too cold, allow this to warm up some to get the fruitiness... The cranberry is a little light IMO.. it shows as a tart cranberry essence on the finish... a good grainy Kolsch supplies the backbone. I will certainly drink some of these when I see them.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Manzanita pint glass
From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho
Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack
Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013
Consumed: Dec. 22, 2013
Poured a caramel amber murky color with about three fingers of frothy white head. Sporadic foamy spots of lacing all the way down. Great retention all the way down.
Smelled cranberry, raspberry and dark cherry. That’s pretty much it.
Tasted much better, in fact it initially reminded me of a sour. Got sour cherries, cranberry, Sweet Tart and raspberry. Really enjoyed it.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long sour finish.
I really enjoyed this beer. Reminded me of a lighter sour.

12oz can thanks to toby for saving me one. Pours out a pink topped with a white head. Nose is malt grain berries and a touch of fruit. Taste is as the nose with a little of the cranberries and a nice grain.
