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.
