COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The number one obstacle for blondes wishing to go rouge is figuring out which side they’re currently on. I suppose our Renegade Blonde is no exception. It’s an ale. Believe me I checked… But when it’s young, it has a crisp, malty flavor with a refreshingly bitter finish, not unlike a lager. With age, it develops a mild, fruity character, like an ale.

Pretty normal blonde kolsch. Cracker body, definitely could taste yeast which was almost Belgian tasting. Fine.

355 ml bottle bought at Ocean One in Kam Tin, Yuen Long.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with a layer of dirt-like yeast sediments; One and a half finger head with long-lasting crumpety white foam; Beautiful sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragment and sweet malt, with strong plums, strong raisins, dark fruits, strong apricots, vanilla, perfume, alcohol, caramel, toffee, floral, sugar, bread, strong Belgian yeast, faint lemon and light grass. Nice!

Taste: Medium sweet malt, with thin yellow fruits, alcohol, liquorices, floral, light molasses, light biscuits, strong yeast, earth, lime, mid to strong bitter hops and herbal grass.

Body: Medium body. Slick and slightly creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Fairly solid maltness in a thick and creamy background. Booze dominates but not overwhelming with strong liquorices. Clean otherwise with floral, fair sweetness, earthy, biscuity with lime to round. Very well-defined!

Hoppiness: Floral, faint lemon and light grass in nose. Yellow fruits, floral, earth, lime and herbal grass in taste; Bitterness is fairly strong for a lasting, Mid to high astringent bitter-sweet finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Earthy, hoppy and herbal bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one has mesmerizing Belgian dark fruity aroma. Taste-wise is very clean, liquor-ish boozy with limey herbal hoppiness. It reminds me of Belgian IPA. Coupled with great looks, this fusion Koelsch truly excels. Cheers!

500 ml Willebecher glass draft at the Angel’s Trumpet Ale House in Phoenix, Arizona. The pour is a mostly clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is clean cracker malt, toast, and a general grass yeast. The taste is a really nice bright fresh cracker malt and grass, very much what I have come to expect from a Kolsch. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft natural carbonation and a dry grass grain finish. Tasty beer.
