Draft at Alla Spina in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a two finger pillowy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
This beer is made with lemon marmalade and has a really strong citrus presence on top of the more traditional kolsch characteristics. Lots of citrusy lemon curd along with floral and citrus hops, bread and pale malt. The lemon dominates making it smell like a dessert beer but the tradional elements of the style are still noticeable.
Medium bodied and more balanced than I expected based on the nose. There is a good amount of lemon and citrus flavor but it's countered by a prominent crisp hop bite that cuts through the sweetness and lingers into a slightly dry finish. Not overly dry of bitter with some tropical/citrus fruit notes as well as some bread, biscuit and pale malt. I thought that I was going to get a lemon overload but this beer is decently balanced yet the other elements. Refreshing and easy to drink.
