Mildly sweet with a touch of Tettnanger hop bitterness in the finish, it is the perfect brew for warmer weather or anytime of year.

weihenweizen (2067) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can ffrom shrubber85 poured into a glass. Hazy golden with huge bright white head. Aroma is light malt, medium body, medium carbonation, and little big bubble lacing. Taste is light malt, light grassy hops, hints of lemon, and crisp hops. Easy to drink, but not much flavor.

BIF project. Straight forward kolsch-style ale. Hay, grass, grain, sweet yeast, pale malt, some lemon. Refreshing palate. Well done.

sawbuck (413) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2015
Aroma of straw, and some hints of fruit. Yellow color with a fluffy white head. Sweet flavors up front. Some funky barn and fruit flavors melding with the sweetness nicely. Bitterness on finish is light and lingers a bit, slightly peppery. Slightly chalky mouth feel. O.k.

Patrickctenchi (4582) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2015
Can: A huge white head that after it finally recedes, shows a light yellow-gold. Sweet lemon, grain aroma. Taste is very soft...barley malt, lemon. Almost creamy...light....pretty good, but it’s just too light and delicate.... Not quite enough of any of it’s parts.

Bork (416) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
A clean and crips summer beverage without a whole lot of smells or tastes. Decent alternative to a pale lager when the thirst sets in.

Poured a clear straw yellow with a full white head. The aroma was a weak grass and citrus. The lightly bitter with light body and a bit thin on the tongue.

CJ_Pain (192) - Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Not the kolsh expert by any stretch of the imagination and have only had a handful of this style...... But that being said this is pretty darn good. On the sweet side with minimal carbonation. Drinking this in February but I can see several cans of this getting chugged vine spring and summer. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap, pours crystal clear golden, small white head, great lacing. Aroma is grass, grain, corn. Light sweet, light plus bitter, clean. Light body. Not bad.

Can at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a thick, bubbly white head. Tastes like biscuit malt, grassy, a little musky, corn flavor. Light body and low carbonation. Smells musky, grassy, like corn, light sweetness.
