Tap at Rattle for the Kuhnhenn takeover. Pours clear amber with a bit of white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, yeast, and a bit of hops. Dry, taste is pale malt and more caramel, light bitterness on the finish. Decent but nothing exceptional.

Draft at RnH with Streets, Andrew, and Brendan during the Kuhnhenn Total Tap Takeover Event. I think this might have been listed as the SR Belgian. Not sure if this is the correct entry, but the notes arent very clear anyway. This was #29 and the last beer of an epic night. Pours a copper body with amazing aromas and flavors of wheat, yeast, toasty, fruit, almost salty.

The power of yeast: fruity indeed. Amber..no head. Butterscotch nose. Fall off the vine fruit and dried apricot. Strangly a tad cloying while also being dry. Finish and mouthfeel was crisp.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours a clear crimson amber color, with lots of ruby tones when held up to the light. Thin ring of foam but solid, sturdy, webby lacing. Aroma more like a fruit wine than a beer - tart and alcoholic. Interesting mix of flavors - rich and malty with flavors of honeymalt and candi sugar. Tart and fruity with flavors of apple and cherry. I used to drink a combination of Red Zinger tea and apple juice, and the fruity aroma and flavors in this beer remind me of that. Delicious! A little bit of tannin in the finish, pleasantly tart aftertaste. Very smooth beer, medium carbonation. Way too easy to drink, and I don’t believe for a minute that it was only 5.5% abv. A couple glasses smacked me.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Tap: Glowing ruby hue with a big creamy off-white head and outstanding lace which clings to the glassware. The aroma has notes of currant, cherry, anise, clover, heather, earthy and fruity yeast esters and a hint of oxidation (a good thing). Semi-sweet taste with ripened fruit and spice overtones. A bit bready and caramel is the background. Some woody notes on the finish and noticeable phenolic character. The feel is lush and sticky with moderate warming. Rocking and I really dig it, would drink it again and again.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Tap. Deep brown with red highlights and very clear. Deep, dense tan head lasts until the last drop of liquid is gone. Aroma is fruity and sugary with lots of malt undertones. Medium bodied and smooth. A bit overmalted in flavor, lots of residual sugars remain. The yeast strain is interesting and does leave lots of fruit and ester in the flavor profile. Solid and different beer.

Tap: dark amber with white film for head. Aroma was ll sweet malt with hints of peach. Flavor has alot of caramel and residuel belgian candy sugar taste, with a light fruity background. Decent overall, can see how sweetness would get to people though.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 16, 2005
The body is dark amber. The aroma is mild cherries and sweet mead. The taste has cherries and some walnuts with a diacetyl finish. This also seemed a little salty.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Maybe I just missed the point on this one. Clear sparkling amber, thin off white creamy head. The nose was loaded with sweet aromas of sugar coated sour peach and apricot. Flavor was just the same and begged to be called fuzzy fruit desert wine. Light bodied, light carbonation, drying, sweet fruity finish. Not my cup of tea at all, but luckily Kuhnhenn has about 12 other brews I love anyway....

hopscotch (8534) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2005
Draft... Lightly hazy orange ale with a large, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Sweet, fruity aroma. Funky, tart flavor with some good, malty caramel and yeasty fruit. Medium-bodied and dry with moderate carbonation. Dry finish.
