From Beau’s All Natural Brewing in Vankleek Hill Ontario comes their “Haters Gonna Hate Imperial Kolsch”. The beer pours a yellow colour with a white head. The aroma consists of grain, biscuit, lemon, citrus and floral hops. The flavour is of grain, bread, lemon, citrus rind, wheat, grassy, resin and mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7.1% with an IBU of 40. As an Imperial Kolsch goes this is probably one of the best versions I have been able to try.
Commercial Description: Haters Gonna Hate is an extra-strong interpretation of our flagship beer Lug Tread, which is a Kölsch-style lagered ale. Tropical aromas and a mildly “catty” character are contributed with the addition of some Nelson-Sauvin hops.
Food pairing as per brewery: Chili-lime + garlic prawns, feta vinaigrette, Korean BBQ beef short ribs (Galbi), kimchi, ripe surface-ripened cheeses like La Sauvagine or Madawaska.
