On-tap at the brewpub.Opaque yellow with some bubbly white head. Yeasty aroma, and yeasty taste, along with some spiciness and fruitiness demonstrated the craftmanship. Natural carbonation, right there. Also known as the "Duvel in Ms. Jones" Middling mouthfeel.

This is one of my favorite Grand Cru beers. It starts out nicely, and just gets better as it warms up. A lot of great flavors - bubblegum, pineapple, and red licorice. Finishes beatifully. Very easy going down. I really wish the bros would make this all year round.

Hazy orange with a brownish hue topped with fine, off-white foam. Good head retention with a bit of lacing. Aromas of ginger, cloves, citrus and crackery malt. The flavour was heavy on malty caramel, with notes of clove, bubblegum, oranges and tangerines, plus a bit of peppery alcohol. It also had a bit of earthy citrus peel, cookie dough character, with some gingerbread and bread crust too. Medium to full bodied with lowish carbonation, a bit on the dry side. Tasty, but quite intense.

A - this belgian style offering is a light tea brown with no head and no carbonation

S - the hops are prominent, the first element of the aroma to hit is a piney/cedar-y aroma, very resiny and slightly sickly sweet, rather intriguing, with some inherent hidden spices

T - pininess is still big in the taste as well, with a huge ginger kick added to it, the spiciness is evoked as a nice dlove flavor, balancing the sweetness of the pine/ginger, the description says "clove, banana and bubble gum", i can definitely smell slight elements of clove and banana, but i couldnt pick out the bubble gum

M&D - a tasty beer, well balanced sweet and spicy, easy to drink, a nice example of an amercian version of a belgian style, well done again kuhnhenn's

from my favorite brewery. poured a deep amber, with a light tan head. aroma, caramel, hops, pine,alcohol. flavor, hops, citrus, apples, pears, grapes, honey with a nice bitterness finish. the brewers at kuhnhenn do it again, I am glad they are close. I think they make the best beer.
