BigBeer45 (1266) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle from brewery, pours a hazy gold with orange and burnt orange hues, white bubbles make a ring and a few sparse bubbles that hardly make a cover, medium effervescence, aromas of yeast, light fruits – orange and lemon citrus, malt bread, light spices, the aroma reminds me of a Witbier and the Bell’s 8000, some honey sweetness to, flavors of light fruits – orange, white raisin along with fruit sweetness and lemon citrus, pale malt, pepper and lemon citrus prick at the finish, I sensed a little alcohol in the taste but nothing to distract from the enjoyment of the drink, mouth feel is light on palate for a Belgian Strong Ale, a nice drink, lots of light fruit influences for a BSA.

On-tap at the brewpub.Opaque yellow with some bubbly white head. Yeasty aroma, and yeasty taste. Natural carbonation, right there. Also known as the "Duvel in Ms. Jones" Middling mouthfeel.

Blaze312 (132) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2009
12 oz bottle, picked it up at the 10th anniversary party. pours a very cloudy orange color. Smells of spice and maybe a hint of fruit. Taste is sweet with a slight tart to it. The spice also comes through pretty strong, slight malt/hops. It’s a pretty decent beer, but the price would probably discourage me from getting it again as it isn’t amazing.

On tap at Kuhnhenn’s 10th anniversary party. Color was yellow/amber with slight white head. Aroma was moderately malty, with light bread and doughy yeast. Also some light lemony hops. Taste moderately sweet and lightly bitter, with sweet malt and fruits. Light to medium mouthfeel, with soft carbonation and dry finish. Pretty good!

Hazy light amber body with a tiny white head. The nose is lightly sweet with banana, herbs and slightly medicinal. The flavor is lightly sweet with grassy/herbal hops, banana, clove and cotton candy. Medium/full body is round with a slightly warm and astringent finish.

I like the Cru. It is a different, but has the sweet fruit and candy flavors. Drink it at Kuhnhenn’s.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2008
On tap at Kuhnhenn. Yellow gold with a thin but sturdy head. Pretty much sweet bubblegum in the nose. Flavor is a bit artificial and too candy like. Big abv is right in yer face.

On tap. Aroma is spicy with dried fruits and banana, Belgium candi, crystal, and yeast. Deep Gold/Red hue with an off-white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is big and Belgium. Fruits, spice, and yeast. Very good. Soft carbonation and medium to full bodied. A fantastic brew.
