Bottle. Pours a dark gold colour with a thin white head not much carbonation, the taste is medium bitterness and fruity with a dry bitter finish.

nazzty (1375) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2015
Intriguing nose with some nice aromas of white bread and fresh hops. The taste is not living up to those expectations with a slight touch of metal.

Bottle 33cl, a clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is on toasted caramel and brown caramel. Aroma is on sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, floral with berries notes, good toasted caramel background, walnuts, hazelnuts, diacetyl . Good complexity, good malty side.

Draught at Trois 8, 4/24/15
This was indeed listed as a kolsch on the menu, and while I wouldnt run out and call this a kolsch if I drank it blind, I’d much less call it a BdG. Very nice attenuation on the beer with very grassy, somewhat floral hops adding a moderate bitterness. There are some unusual flavors in here, not sure that I would agree they are off or unwanted. It is easy to write off unusual flavors to it being a "Farm Brewery" and while I certainly do not think that gives you free reign to produce strange or unclean beer, I rather liked the strange, yeasty flavors here. Light sourdough, biscuits and lemon are all mixed in with a light carbonation and somewhat watery texture to be expected at this gravity. I will admit that I agree on there being some soapiness here or some other such alkaline compound that is undesirable. Other than that, though, it goes down well and has a true enough malt and hop flavor. Trois 8 strikes me as a place that does a little homework on the breweries they are putting on tap, so I expect this isn’t just some second rate brewery.
Moderate haziness shows more sediment than it should, but it’s not cloudy. Head is small and fairly fleeting while the body is a pale, bronzed-tinged gold.
Nose smells of mineral water, floral and lightly citrusy hops. Bit of honey.

mansquito (6264) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Le Trois 8, Paris, Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is like a light pils. Taste is slightly hopped and a bit of green apple. Very easy drinking. This was described as a kolsch, rather than a biere de garde on the menu, so I don’t know what is up.

33cl bottle from a friend. It poured a golden colour with a minimal white head. Some carbonation. Aroma is farmhouse, grass, malts, wheat and hints of yeast. Flavour is lightly bitter. Bread, wheat, yeast, citrus, apple. Some metallic notes. Short aftertaste. Served a bit too warm.

330 mL bottle. Looks kinda like a wit. With not much head. Taste is wheat (?) and yeast. A little sweet. Quite pleasant and drinkable. A little grainy. I’d haver another.
