COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We begin our seasonal offering with White Street Kolsch that pours an old-gold with a fine, white head. A subtle fruitiness for the nose extends to the palate with hints of pear and melon. A very crisp and refreshing thirst quencher.

Cold bottle...generally not a big fan of Kolsch style, but White Street has smooth yet crisp flavor without bite

N3lson1 (495) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Drank at Clouds Brewing, poured from a tap into a pint glass. Pours a clear yellow, with decent white head that disappears quickly. Has a light taste (as most kolschs do) but has an odd mid flavor that lingers into the end...eh

malvrich (104) - durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2015
bottle into a pilser 5.2 % ABV no date found but local brewery just started to bottle recently A: Clear medium yellow pour with a rapidly falling white head. Big bubbles rising. Minimal lace left. S:Faint winey yeast aroma with a little bread. Not much happening. T: Dry wine flavor with a hint of fruit and a slightly bitter finish. A little like champagne. No real malt or hop taste. Not bad though. M: Snappy carbonation tickles the tongue nicely. Light bodied and easy to drink. O: I like this style though I still find it kind of strange. This is not the best I’ve had (Endless River is) but it is well done IMO and is a pretty good representation. I could get used to this. Nice job by White Street of Wake Forest!
