Had at the solstice last year. Black with a small white head. Aroma was of anise adn other spices and some belgian yeastiness. Flavor was pretty smooth but body seemed a little thin overall.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2008
750mL Bottle. 2007. Gusher. Weirs potpourri spice and fig note. Pumpkin bread and raisins. Plum pudding, cinnamon and esters. Wow. Impressive. Hazed red-plum pour, with a hint of purple and a front of white. Flavor is cogent and coherent. A bit sweet, but with plums and figgy. Fluffy. Alcohol is prominent amongst spice, but the depth of the sugars lies in brown, nut clean. A touch abrasive, but actually some what tasty. Surprisingly dry and well-hinted in the belgian yeast character. Phenols aren’t too coarse, character is decent, and spicing is unique and enjoyable. Not bad.

750ml bottle, courtesy of pantanap, thanks Kan. Very nice dark amber pour, with a dark tan head. Swet spice aroma, maybe allspice or ginger perhaps. Tasty, a little alcohol in the backround a real dense brew,lots of dried fruits, very rich. Very good overall.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 17, 2008
750mL bottle, June 2007 vintage, courtesy of Brett. Thanks! Pours a clear, dark reddish-maple syrup color; thin, light-tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of dried red fruits, ripe red fruits, and toasty notes; lightly medicinal in the nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy dried fruits, caramel, brown sugar, and intense, chewy dark fruits (raisins, plums); dense, chewy dried fruits, caramel, and caramelized bananas at mid-palate; light spicing, and reserved sweetness throughout. Lengthy finish: dried dark fruits, chewy brown sugar, and dark fruitiness; nicely reserved, but still on the sweet side.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Tasted at Cleveland tasting on 8-23-08. Thanks!! Pours a dark brown color with off white head. Has aroma of brown sugar, earth, some fruit, and spearmint. Taste is funky, citrus, malt, and more mint with a lot sweetness to it. Overall the sugary sweetness combined with the minty taste makes this a solid brew.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Thanks to Hopdog for sharing a 750 of this! Pours a deep dark hazy almost muddled brown with amber highlights and a thin head. Aroma is veyr unique- juniper berry, pine, gine, scotch pine, some sweet funky sweet malts, with some licght citrus and acidic notes. Spicy flavor, phenolic yeast hints, not reallly belgian-esque though, more mint and lavender, I get a reminder of HW Juhlia, but not quite as refined- and this one has tons of sweet sugary malts and brown sugar mlasses- hints of smoke as welll. Harsh and a bit too alcoholic of course- as is typical fo kuhnhenn.
