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!

Bottle received via trade with FlandersNed. Pours clear mahogany with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare to no lacing. Aroma is banana, pear, and apple esters with cookie and toast malt, light earthy hops and slight peppery alcohol notes. Flavor is Belgian yeast spices, peppery alcohol, sweet malt, light hops and bitterness, candied fruits, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Clear, light copper ale with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma is straight-up armpit muskiness and cat piss earthiness accompanied by only a hint of caramel. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Surprisingly sweet, but thereís a boatload of Simcoe hop flavor to go along with all the rich caramel and toffee malts. Finishes bittersweet - more sweet than bitter. World class brew Ė provided by biggsbowler!

Sammy (8760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Big orange citrus taste up front. Very good orange aroma. Cushioned mouthfeel. Yeast in the finish. Very good for style. Could also pass as a Belgian IPA. Dangerously drinkable at this alcohol level.Thanks for sharing Josh.

Big and sweet one here. Coudl use more hops. Hops are vegetal to start however then they mellow out into some mine pine and fruit.

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.

mcberko (6726) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is very Belgian-esque, with Belgian yeast upfront, candied sugar, and fairly prominent honey. Flavour brings a mesh of honey, candied sugar and Belgian yeast upfront, with all these qualities fighting each other for the front position. There is a soft doughy malt in there as well and some alcohol notes, though quite well-hidden for 11+%. Not really much hint of the hops. A little amateurish tasting - the various flavours could be better integrated. All in all, still a decent American take on a Belgian strong, but flawed.

12oz bottle, huge thanks to umich03jm. Great piney nose. Mostly clear golden - orange color. Good thin off-white head. Good lace. Big body. Smooth texture, very smooth. Lighter carbonaton. More dry texture. Incredible piney hop aroma, and flavor. Big belgian yeast characteristic gives an interesting sort of vanilla flavor. Works well with the piney hop, which is fascinating. Very unique, never had anything like it. Itís also extremely drinkable for 11.25%. Dangerously. Alcohol warmth is there in the finish, but no bite, at all. Very smooth. Sweet taste otherwise, little bite if any at all. Awesome. With this being my 2nd ever Kuhnhenn brew, officially now ISO all other unrated.

5000 (6298) - 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!

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks mikem409). Looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells of floral and pine hops and dough with a semi-sweet, slightly boozy backbone. Notes of honey too. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.
