This Pale American Belgo style beer was 2010 GABF’s silver medal winner. It has notes of spicy pineapple, mango bubblegum aromas which comes from the unique marriage of a special Bel-gian yeast and an American Simcoe hop. This beer has an initial soft malt sweetness with orange fruitiness and finishes with a hoppy dryness.
A.B.V. formerly at 10.0% and 10.5%.

2oz sample at brewery. Pours a pale straw yellow with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, citrus hops, and bubble gum. Flavor matches well with a slight sweetness to balance, a bit of malt not detected in the aroma, and some sweet fruits. Mouthfeel is dry and light.

Dry hoppy aroma of hay and citrus with a bananaish belgian fruit. Appears bright clear yellow with swirls of foam. Tastes a lot like a sweet reisling, bright, sweet, citrusy, light. Palate is light, fizzy, nice. Overall, wow, very delicate, flavorful, nice.

Tap: Cloudy, dull golden color with a half-inch white head that lasts on top. Some nice, generous lacing left behind. Aroma is pretty subdued at first. What I get from it is kind of strange, too. Notes of weird pickled garlic, potent herbal hoppage, bitter leaves, white pepper, a bit of medicinal phenols. Not loving it so far. Taste is similarly disappointing. Sharp clove & white pepper followed by a brash, pretty harsh bitterness. Earthy hops, heavy dirt flavor, ashy leaves... A little overpowering. Slight chalky yeast character with more phenols, medicinal tones, & spicy bubblegum in the finish. Belgian yeast aftertaste, spicy & herbal with some lingering esters. Kuhnhenn makes some great beers. They also make some fantastic beers. This is neither. Not a fan.

Draft - Light bubblegum and fruity esters. Clear gold with a decent white head. Sweet, fruity and syrupy. Almost like cough syrup. A it too sweet and sticky for me.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass golden-orange, nice head. Fine fruity-hoppy aroma. Starts mild, fruity, yeasty, light sweetish notes, hints of peaches. Finish more dry. Nice!

Clouded orange coloured pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma is earthy elmon and floral hops and a touch of hot alcohol. Flavour is rubber, citrus, lemon, crisp and refreshing. Palate is light medium sweet. Lingering lemon and leather.
