Allright. hopped with huge amounts of Saphir Hops. and it is actually fermented with a german ale yeast. from cologne. so it would be a “Kölsch”. our regulars know, that we wouldnt be allowed to call it “Kölsch”, only local cologne breweries are. so we called it “Wölsch”. and an unfiltered “Kölsch” is called “Wiess”. brewed at 1516 the 1st time about 8 years ago. this time, we hopped with the relatively new breed “Saphir”. and we do not have enough “Kölsch” glasses, to just serve in them. sorry. our boss, the genius, simply still has not ordered.

Draught at the brewpub, small stable, head, hazy lemon yellow colour, yeasty, grassy, spicey aroma, flavour of tonic water, orange and bitter lemon, light sweetness and a pleasant medium strong bitterness balancing each other. Wonderfull beer for a hot summers day.

19/07 On tap at the brewpub. It poured hazy pale yellow body with medium sized head. Nice, slightly lemony hop aroma. Flavor was more sweet than dry, fruity malty, touched with citrus hop, I guess that’s the Sapphire. Quite easy on palate, smooth, medium bodied with very nice long honey and fruity finish. Of course drier than usual Kölsch beers but it’s nicely rounded toward the end making it quite pleasant.
