2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. BB 9/2016. (Albert Heijn) Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Hazy golden color with a small white head.
Sea water, yeast, mild fruitiness and sweet maltiness in the aroma.
The flavor is hops, mild bitterness, malt and some fruitiness. I wouldn’t recognize that this is Kölsch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle from local AH, best before July 2016. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Grassy, slightly citrusy aroma of hay, grains and hints of lemon. Slightly bitter, grassy taste of hay, grains and hints of lemon, followed by a slightly bitter, grassy-hoppy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very classical approach to this style, not really interesting or tasty, just drinkable and refreshing. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Een troebel, lichtgeel gekleurd bier met een stevige witte kraag. Een lekker zoetig en fruitig aroma wat ik zelf nog het beste kan omschrijven als het aroma van aardbeienjam. Heel even zit dit ook in de smaak, maar deze word al snel voor bitter. Een subtiel bittere nasmaak blijft even hangen.
A cloudy, slightly yellow colored beer with a firm, white layer of foam. A nice an sweet aroma which resembles the aroma of strawberry jam. This returns in the taste for a second, but it quickly becomes bitter. A subtile bitter aftertaste remains.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Pale, hazy color with huge head. Aroma has lemon notes, something like a witbier. Taste starts really fresh, with some dough and slightly tart, lemony notes. Carbonation is on the high side and the body is quite light. Overall it’s a decent, refreshing beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Sweetish, yeasty aroma, grass hops. Cloudy dark yellow color, white head. Flavor is light sweet with some hints of malt and caramel, also some acid, shy fruitiness, grass hops and light citrus peel bitterness. Not very interesting.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Kind hazy with a big foamy head. There’s a ton of sediment in the bottle so once it’s emptied the beer becomes almost murky. Aroma grainy and sweet. Heavy, without the crispness you’d expect from a kolsch. Taste follows aroma, grainy and sweet, way too heavy and lacking crispness. This is not kolsch, and not good.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Clear light amber colour with almost no head. Caramel, sweet and yeast in the aroma. Soft carbonation and light body. Taste is light but sweet. Overall, a boring but drinkable beer.

Loving it... once my sister brought this beer for me from the Netherlands to Spain where I live.. I enjoyed it so much that I started to look for sales points around my location and luckily I found a shop about 1.5 hours drive from my place but it is worth it !

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks for sharing! Sampled draft @ De Prael during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. Sampled as “Bitter”. Hazy orange, quite hazy, small white head. Nose is boring, sugar, malt, yeast, no complexity,… Taste is dull plaster, BE-like, big yeast, more sugar, dull sugary orange,… Yeasty, bland, overly yeasty & sugar etc. Didn’t pick this one for a Kölsch, tasted quite Belgian for me in a bad way.
