Aroma is tangerines, fruit and slightly perfumed. The flavor is tangerines, fruit, mild hops, malts and a tart/very lightly bitter finish. Brigadier (3830) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2015

A polished release between two world class brewers brings together the northern and central parts of Indiana in great fashion. A beer with a limited shelf life, this one is best consumed as soon as you buy the bottle. Heavy on the hops it highlights the past of what both have to offer the craft beer community.
Aroma / Appearance - A bronze golden base glimmers with lively carbonation that unfolds waves of fresh hops. Caramels, orange polish, and lemons are heavy on the citrus. Starchy undertones set it apart although I’m still not clear what would define an average "doppelkolsch".
Flavor / Palate - Starchy lemons meld with orange floor wax and a moderate bitterness. Part caramel and part hops, the two aspects play off each other. Sun King and Three Floyds might have been able to make something better but this demonstrates the expertise of both well. If it comes back around grab a bottle the next time you pass through Chicago.
22 ounce bottle. Slight perfume. Flora in taste. Some honey. Slight sweetness. Nice. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2015

Bottle tasted at a hotel share in Athens, OH. Kind of hazy gold orange color. Pours with a bigger white head in my taster glass. Leaves good lace. Nice big floral citrusy hop, nice peppery character. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Mild dry finish. Very nice and smooth. Mild to moderate sweet taste, mild to moderate bitter, great balance to the taste. Good hop character, without being too hoppy or too bitter, for a kolsch. Yeah, this works great. A touch too peppery maybe, but aroma-hop does its job.
