On tap at DLD ’09. Lighter aroma, good amount of hop as expected with grassy, leafy, and some citrusy hops (definitely not standard 3fs, but their work is still noticeable here). Also, some lager pale malts, and melon. Still very enticing, and gotta give 3fs credit for making a beer of this style so appealing. Not really that special appearance though, but not bad, lighter body with a frothy white head, minor carbonation, golden-orange color. With the taste, I feel this is really as good as a crisp, clean tasting bottom-fermenting beer can be, as there some creaminess to it and the flavors come out very well. Notes of a grassy, 3fs citrus bitter, some lactose sweetness, and basic pils malt and pale malt balance that is nice. One of 3fs more basic selections, but I really can’t complain as it works out pretty well. A nice way to cap off a really great day of drinking.

Nothing really stands out about this Koelsch, other than it is a good representation of the style. Light in color, nice smell of the yeast and hops. Very drinkable with a Koelsch tang.

Not a big fan of the kolach but this wasn’t bad. Bready and malty. Not too bad.

HonkeyBra (3358) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Golden pour with nice white head. Doughy, fruity aroma with some floral hops. Mild hoppiness, light flavor with lots of fruitiness. Light and effervescent on the palate. The kind of Kolsch that doesn’t suck. Of course Three Floyds made it.

kseecs16 (1193) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Golden with a thin white head that leaves clumpy lacing. Nice floral bouquet on this with a light malt presenced. Flavor is light with a mild floral hoppy finish. Thin with a mild lingeriing bitterness.

nuplastikk (4351) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2009
Imperial pint draft at the brewpub. Easy drinking and smooth, the session light beer. Rather well done Kolsch actually, leaning more to the malty side of the spectrum. Filtered orange-tan color. Fresh malt and hop aroma. Refreshingly well done.

Had on tap a couple of days ago. Good for a Kolsch, disappointing for FFF. The moment I tried this, I said to myself "This is not Three Floyds material." A good beer, but if there’s other FFF to choose, this one should be put aside.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2008
On tap at the brewpub: Slightly cloudy and yellow in color with a thin white head. The aromas and flavors were on the soft side lacking the typical FFF concentration.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - JUL 22, 2008
On tap at brewpub. I haven’t had many kolsches but I think this is the best so far. Slightly hazy yellow, small white head. Doughy yeast aroma. Basically sweet and smooth. One of the lighter brews from these guys but still good.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2008
On tap at Three Floyds and served in a pint glass. This beer poured a mildy hazy golden with a thin head of fizzy white foam. A decent amount of light lacing was left behind. The aroma included sweet malts, light toast, and some mild citrus. The flavor was much the same with a slightly citrusy, crisp finish. The mouthfeel was light-bodied and easy drinking with moderate carbonation. A nice, clean and refreshing summer drink.
