Cloudy dark brown beer, small cream coloured head. Light semi dry palate. Tangy wheaty citrus, bordering on sour. Mild caramel in the background. Whisper of chocolate. Semi dry finish. Nice tangy fruits in these Kuhnhenn wheats!

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Served side by side with Kuhnhenn Hefeweiss. Shared with Mike & Matt. The beer appears a mildly hazy, mahogany shade of brown. An off-white, bordering on light tan, head measures approximately 1/4". After a few moments, the head settles to a thin wispy layer. The aroma is far more assertive than the Hefeweiss. Banana, malt, light spices, sweet bread, sugar. The flavor is nice and enjoyable. Plenty of banana presence. Akin to banana bread. Sweet, but not too. Nice notes of bread and brown sugar. Thin to medium bodied, with adequate carbonation. Alcohol presence a non factor. Overall, a decent brew, though still short of the high marks set by the authentic German examples of the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-15-2011

Bottle. Sour wheat malt, funky yeasty aroma. Hazy brown with a minimal head. Sour yeasty wheat malt flavor, very citric. Light body and carbonation.

shrubber85 (7387) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Banana, clove and lactic wheat/caramel malt aroma. Cloudy orange brown with small head. Sweet-tart lemon, banana, and toasted wheat malt flavor. Nice - not as sweet as the typical dunkelweizen.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2012
12oz bottle picked up at one of the best beer stores around, Champane’s! It pours a mahogany sort of darkness with a light tan head floating around on the top. The aroma is all earthy and minerally and fruity with sort of wheat notes around the edges. The taste is oddly similar and a mix of dark fruits and earthiness are cut with a mild dry sort of mineral note. These notes soften a bit with a quick shot of a wheat like sensation into the finish.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Shared by Ibrew2or3. Pours a hazy caramel color with a thin tan head. Lots of caramel and fruit in the nose. Tase is slightly tart and sweet. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Not bad.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2011
12oz bottle picked up at the brewpub. 2011 Summer Solstice. Pours a murky brown colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is yeasty with some banana and clove as well as some band-aid. A light caramel and wheat graininess with a bit of a sourness. Flavor is similar. A bit sour up front before a thin caramel and wheat comes in. A light yeast towards the finish with a hint of banana and clove. Finishes with some band-aid and no bitterness before leaving a short aftertaste. Thin body and light carbonation. Overall, not a very good beer. Some band-aid and sourness mixing with a pretty boring flavor.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 9, 2011
12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Umami-heavy and oxidized olive bread aroma. odd. A distant Dunkelweizen impression. Why do so many Kuhnhenn beers have this underlying plain tanginess to them. It’s not infection, but more like a sour mash feel. Odd and not enjoyable here. The darker flavors here hint at soy and sherry. Not carbonated enough and feeling too sweet. Messy.

Strykzone (4836) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Sampled at an esbla tasting. Dark brown with little head. A butter aroma with malt. More diactyl in the flavor. Infected. Not good.
