Pours gold with a large head.
Nose shows spicy and herbal hops along with faint lemon custard and soft clean malt.
Similar flavours, pretty much the same characters as mentioned above followed by a mild bitterness.
Carbonation seems a little excessive.

Pours a pale straw colour, light haze and steady bead. Head is white and dense and retaining a very nice crown with some sticky off-white lace. Lookin' good, there, Kölschy.
Smell is gawwwgeous. So light, floral and tangy. Lots of citrus with some apricot jam, orange sherbet and plum sauce for sweetness and richness. Rich and tangy like good barbecue sauce and yet light like a good champagne. Wonderful complexities, and the best kölsch I've smelled in a long time.
Taste is tangy from the get go with huge citric notes and pepperberry - orange and lemon flavours with a touch of lavender providing slight floral bitterness, plus some lemongrass and white peppercorns come through on the mid that last until the end. The characteristic kölschy dryness is distinct late-mid but it just adds to the weird, wonderful array of fruit and spice assaulting my palate. Bit of a chemical, soapy flavour on the back is the only dud note in an excellent palate. Front is just beautiful though.
Lots of carbonation is mostly padded by the decently full body, but it does border on harsh at times.
Excellent drop, great use of hops to carry a beer forward, nicely flavoured and rounded off and refreshing as a dip in the pool after several years in Hell.

Tried on tap at The Local Taphouse in Sydney.
I tried this one (which was labelled at the Taphouse as merely the "Mornington Peninsula Kölsch") without realising this is the one that prominently features Sorachi Ace. What a difference it makes, what a unique hop! It was clear from early on that this was a unique-flavoured beer.
Pours a hazed but translucent golden yellow colour. Head is fine and with, with sudsy lacing that doesn't stick quite as much as it could. Minimal carbonation, and what appears to be a light body, but amazingly, when swirled, it forms some good static bubbling. Overall, a good looking beer.
Nose is where you start to notice the uniqueness here. It's fresh and fruity; very sweet, with almost a raspberry character coming through (notes say "this isn't the Sorachi Ace one is it?"). But to balance the sweetness, there's a good dose of clean and crisp organics. Some hay aromas sharpen the sweetness. Lovely.
Taste is similar, with a raspberry leaf kind of sweet organic freshness. Clean light bitterness at the back which isn't overdone. The light body gives it that crisp lager style. Thoroughly enjoyable.
A very drinkable brew. So refreshing, and different enough to give it buckets of interest. Very unique, very different. It's a cracking brew, worthy of a place in the Australian Craft Brewing zeitgeist with the likes of Stone & Wood Pacific. Try it!
