Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch, small fizzy off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is caramel, orange, cardboard. Flavor is better, caramel and orange notes with honey and some pine. Medium sweet, malty, lightly bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. ABV extremely well hidden, which is impressive.

Bottle: oily looking, deep copper color with barely any translucency. Slow growing, foamy white head settles to a film & fat collar in a few moments. Aroma has notes of spicy, earthy hops, zesty white pepper, & Belgian yeast eaters like light banana & some clove bubblegum. Mildly phenolic. Taste isnít as heavy as Iíd expect from this beer. Notes of floral hops, white pepper, caramel & toffee malt, some Belgian spices, yeast, mild honey sweetness, & light fruity esters. Finish contains an alcohol warmth with some fusel notes. I like this better than Simcoe Silly... Itís good. Much better than expected.

Extra in a trade from umich43jm, thanks Jason! Pours orange brown with a scant white head that retreats quickly to the edge of the glass. Aroma is musty wet dog, caramel malt. Flavor is malty, mineral, a little hot. A bit if bitterness in the finish cuts the caramel malt that lingers on the tongue.

Clear amber beer with a good size pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Mild minerals. Touch of brandyish alcohol. Mild orange and orange marmalade hops. Nice floral sweetness in the mid. Finishes dry with a little spicy alcohol. Nice beer, possibly past itís best but working okay as a barleywine!

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2013
bottle. amber with minimal head. lightly sweet with bready malt body. not even a hint of booze. not as hoppy as youíd expect from a double IPA, but plenty of flavor.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle:   Pale amber, orange skewed, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Sweaty nose, doughy, with some beefy floral notes.   Seriously, what is going on with this beer?   Canít smell the 11.25%, so thatís good.   Whoa, also cannot taste it.   Pale breadiness, very light sweetness, a touch of honey.   Not Belgian, and not anything IPA or IIPA like.   A little dusty on the finish, musty, and perhaps more Belgian than I think.   This is an odd duck, for sure.   Not sure what they are trying to accomplish, but I really prefer the standard Simcoe Silly to this one.   Comes across as a yeasty/doughy bready beer with a slight bit of mustiness, without much floral or herbal character.   Nothing about this is Belgian.   I will only say that the 11.25% ABV... is that to be believed?   Thanks Kevin!

poured from a bottle into a Duvel snifter. Deep amber color with small white head. Nose is much more inviting than the simcoe silly (cat box). slightly piney, but a noticeable malty, honey forward component. minimal head and CO2. strong bitterness with supporting malt. overall a well balanced beer

Big thanks to my sister, ratebeerís 15_2_Kuhnhenn, for sending me this. The 12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a weak near white head. The aroma offers up sugar sweet Belgian yeast, ripe red apples, booze and sugar coated lime peel and then a bit more booze at the end of the draw. The taste starts smooth and sweet and then it moves into Belgian yeasty spicy notes and then a mix of red apples and raisins. To midway a sugary malt covered lime like citrus hop note comes to the surface. This is a nice sipper.

milewide (1461) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2013
$7.99/12 oz. was too expensive! Kuhnhenn beers are too pricey, even in their home state of MI. Slightly cloudy light amber. Modest head. Solid body. Little aroma and little Belgian yeast influence. Simcoe taste was enjoyable. Little hop bitterness.

From the bottle. Poured a nice honey amber with no head. aroma honey, bananas, yeast, citrus, hint of pineapple and mango ,some alcohol .Flavor, lemon, bubblegum, honey, and the pineapple, got very little alcohol they know how to hide that so it doesnít dominate. GOOD BEER
