Bottle, 12oz. It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer with a small, white head. Quite a few microfloaties as well. Lots of bubblegum on the nose, with lemon and some orange, a touch of wheat and cloves. The cloves are more present in the flavor, especially in the finish, with the bubblegum, banana, lemon and wheat present all the way. It’s quite lemony sour on the palate, medium to thin bodied, and with a too hard carbonation, although not effervescent. Long finish. In my opinion, there’s too much bubblegum and acidity in this one, but at least it goes down easily. Until the gas makes it too filling. 130829 brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
A: The pour is a pale golden straw color with a finger of white head.
S: Seems to have a bit of corn to it as well as some pale malts. Not much in the way of hops, maybe a little floral hop aroma. Might actually have some rice, too.
T: A very light flavor. Some sweet corn and rice flavors with a pale malt/bread flavor. As with the aroma, not much hop flavor. There is a little bit of bitterness and perhaps some floral hops.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Pretty typical, mediocre blonde ale. Ferris (16270) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle - Sweet honey, lemon and a touch of banana. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Banana, honey and a touch of tartness in the finish. Not bad, bun nothing great. bhensonb (15607) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle from the Texas trading fiend: ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Aroma is strongly banana with a little spice. Near med body til the carbonation leaves. Flavor is principally banana, but there’s fairly strong clove. Maybe there should be a hefebarley style? Pretty drinkable.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a medium creamy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a stronge clove and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with the yeast upfront with clove and light citrus with a nice dry finish. A unique take on the lawnmower, a great Kolsch from Sai t Arnold.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. As "Saint Arnold Centenni*ale Blonde Ale". Hazy yellow-ish golden color. Yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Sweetish fruity flavor with light spiciness. Light-medium-bodied. A Kolsch?! Really?! Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
A lightly hazed blonde kolsch with a thin lacing white head. In aroma,light fruity malt with light cherry notes and cloves. In mouth, a nice smooth fruity with light banana and cloves, light biscuit malt, refreshing. On tap at Sunset Grill, July 15, 2012. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
355ml twist off bottle. Pee gold with a fizzy quickly dissipating head. The aroma is tart with grain husk and a hint of sugar. Flavor has some banana and spice notes. Perhaps a large red kristalweizen? It drinks okay. Not like a koelsch but decent. Edit; upon entering my notes here I see it is indeed what I thought it was and on purpose, phew.
