A quick check shows it available in Australia and New Zealand and at least one HB forum post says it will be in North America by year end.  Like when Brewtan B first came out, it was available through Australian sources before it hit the U.S. homebrew market for some reason (less red tape, maybe?)

Thanks! Can't wait to hear more about this yeast. I have been waiting for a "true" kolsch dry yeast strain. I wonder if this will fit the bill.

It will be interesting to see if it makes an acceptable Kölsch.

That would be awesome.

I would also like to compare it to US-05 and Bry-97 for APA’s and Ambers.
