Bottle from the brewery, Winter Solstice. Beautiful peachy orange appearance with white head that reflected the fading sunset. Wonderful wheat aroma draws me in easily. Above average mouthfeel, tasty wheat, leading to a pinnacle of bannana and orange citrus fruit. Very drinkable.
Had again on tap at the brewpub and tasty fruity wheat.

the first brew i have had from these guys that didnt absolutely blow me away with quality and originality. not to say it isnt really good, but just that it lacks that oh my goodness element the others have had. its essentially a big strong wit, with all the fruity esters you expect from such a yeast strain, tons of wheat malt body and even sweetness, and then a lemongrassy hop finish thats cool for the style, but lost to the fragrance and potency of the yeast just a bit. its delicate too though for being so robust, its just the sweetness hits a wall mid way, and then the yeast seems naked. the alcohol doesnt show though, making this a dangerously easy drinking brew. i like the belgian intensity, but its not unique from others like it. a well made beer overall with a cool mouthfeel, but maybe a half step behind the best they have to offer.

This beer pours out as a cloudy yellowish golden color with a little white head on it. The aromas of malts, fresh grains and some spices. The taste followed through with these same elements. The mouthfeel was pretty good also. The overall view of this beer that I have is that it was good but just didn't spark my interest all that much. My friend brought home a growler her enjoyed it that much. I just wasn't able to get into this one too much, but it was worth trying.

A: It poured cloudy deep golden orange with no bubbles visible on the surface.
S: There is a distinct aroma of grapefruit and wheat malts in the nose, along with spices such as clove, coriander and pepper.
T: The taste generally follows the smell and is rather fruity with flavors of grapefruit and orange. The overall taste is very well balanced between the fruits, spices and malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate.
D: For its strength, the alcohol is very well masked making this beer very drinkable. I would definitely have this again as it was fruity and refreshing.

Poured into unibroue snifter

Pours a light layer of white head. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Aroma: A lot of wheat, cloves, lemon zest, and spice. It has some bready malts and it shows it is a big beer for the style.

Taste: A massive amount of lemon zest, huge lemonade flavor. It also has some applesauce flavors with some peppercorn. I also get some wheat and clove. Bready malts. Very unique.

Mouthfeel: Think of biting into a lemon. Very citrusy. Medium bodied with a lower amount of carbonation. Ends citrusy, fairly clean.

Overall, a very interesting beer. It was actually pretty decent. It has some nice flavors, but lacked in the nose. I liked all the lemon flavors. Fairly drinkable as well.

First had: on tap at Blind Tiger, NYC

Served in a tulip glass, a dull golden-orange color, opaque with haze, and a tiny ringlet of head that disappeared completely within seconds. Lots of soft fruit and clovey spice in the nose. Taste is sweet and laden with banana, perhaps more so than I've ever had in a beer, bready yeast, wheat, clove and pepper, light pear and apricot that are mostly eclipsed by the banana, mildly subtle citrus hops in the finish. Smooth and fairly chewy, body is heavier than medium, drinkable, but a bit too sweet for me. Good, but I doubt I could drink more than one of these.

A bottle courtesy of the ever generous hoppymeal. Thanks Derek!

A: The pour is a cloudy golden orange color with a fluffy white head that is somewhat short lived.

S: The nose is incredibly spicy with tons of clove and a bit of white pepper. There's tons of wheat and a nice fruity bouquet of banana, pears, oranges, and apples. The malt and wheat provide a light sweetness and some toasty, bready notes.

T: The flavor was simply exceptional. The clove and pepper flavors are quite strong but still allow the yeast character to shine. The banana is stronger than the nose would indicate and the citrus takes a back seat. The pear and apple flavors give the beer a nice fruity sweetness and work well with the toasty base of the beer.

M: The body is quite full, especially for what I was expecting. The carbonation is creamy and smooth and the finish is slightly dry.

D: I'm not generally the biggest fan of wheat beers, but this was phenomenal. And the rather high ABV was nowhere near detectable. A great beer from Kuhnhenn!

Growler pour from DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY, pours hazed medium apricot amber, short lived off white 1/4 inch head, and then, a tiny bubble film and minor lacing. Ripe fruit, bananas, creamcicle, honey, light pepper and yeast in the nose. Tasty, zesty, citric, bold, complex weizenbock, more creamcicle notes, ample pepper, loads of ripe tropical fruit, lime, smooth finish. Love the style, love the Kuhnhenn brews, so you know this one was quite enjoyable. Nice to find this one available, and fresh on tap at my local.

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/6 inch head of white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of herbs, orange peel, yeast, sweet malt, and more citrus. Fits the style of a Weizenbock. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of coriander, orange peel, yeast, slight hop, and herbs. Overall, good body and aroma.

2009 batch into a snifter.

A: Pellucid golden with a soapy white head and scattered lacing.

S: Prominent banana notes, along with bready malt, clove, bubble gum, wheat, coriander, pear, granny smith apple, and light lemon notes. There's a decided yeasty character to the fruit notes.

T: Banana, clove, yeast, bubble gum, orange, pear, some alcohol, and bready malt. The spicy clove is nice and restrained, never taking away from the banana and rich malt flavors. A little alcohol is evident in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall: I was pleasantly surprised by this. Definitely worth trying.
