Poured from bottle, pours an unclear amber brown with an off white head, the aroma is malty and sweet at first with some of the hops coming through as well, the flavor has a hop front end with a biscuity and malt finish, booze is well hidden, nice mouthfeel, pretty good.

Hazy amber beer with a good off white head. Palate is smooth with a minerally crisp trailing edge, Creamy malt with a nice tangy sweet vibe that resolves in to sherbet candy. Mild crystallised fruits. Light dry finish. Unusual and delicious!

12 ounce bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Pours a darker copper. Not much head. Estery, wheat, and caramelly. Burns in the finish.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hop and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light hop with sweet finish. A good barley wine from Kuhnhenn.

This was a huge surprise. My expectations were so low but this pulled through. Really nice doughy biscuity maltiness with lots of sweetness but it doesnt finish cloying. Relatively drinkable and nice.

12oz bottle, not sure from when .. . muddy amber .. . mild foam . .. city sucks, out of europe for you .. . mild sugar, mild oxidation, and old prune .. . ok stuff but rather lifeless .. . . My mother’s gravy is so lumpy it’s having a biopsy.

Draft. Aroma has notes of citrus hops, orange candy, caramel, malted wheat and wood. Awesome nose! Hazy dark amber hue with an average off-white head and great lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a wonderful wheat wine that nailed every mark. No trace of that 11%abv. Just loved this one.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 12 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff), pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has a whole array of things - full of wheat, cardboard, some dry hops, toasted nuts, grains, some feint fruits, caramel and spices. Flavour is full of spicy notes and toasted nuts upfront, with dry citrusy hops, wheat and dark fruits further back. Quite light-bodied for the ABV, with a very sweet, wheaty, spicy and boozy finish. Decent stuff, but nothing overly great.
