Awesome version of an Ode' Bruin. The cherry flavor really comes out but is not too powerful. I just wish it wasn't such a high gravity beer so I could drink more of it :)Get thaer and get yourself some while its still available. Has been going fast!

The beer comes in a dark brown color.

The flavor has a big punch of tart cherries, a jam like sweetness. A bit of booze comes through, but with tons of tart and acidity. There’s a hint of sweet candy that dances around with the sour cherry and fruit tart flavors. There’s a great drying on the finish.

This is an easy drinking beer with tons of complexity. A few others and I guessed the ABV of this beer at a tasting at around 7-8%. Quite surprised to find out the ABV.

Pours a nice rusty mahogany with a silky tan head. Nose has tart cherries, ripe pitted fruits, sweet malts and acidic grapes. Taste is also full of fresh, vibrant cherries. Dry, acidic finish. Crisp, refreshing body. Another great beer from Kuhnhenn and my first sour from them!

Thanks goes to one of my Michigan hookups. I received a couple bottles and I'm not sure which one this is from.

A: Pours dark cinnamon brown with blood red edges. Tiny amount of beige head leaves soapy lace.

S: Full on booze soaked black cherries. Bits of pie crust and spices. A tiny amount of play doh and wet wood.

T: The cherry flavors shine. Out of the gate it's tart and has a nice bite. This slowly fades into a smooth sweet cherry pie flavor. A decent amount of cinnamon and tart apples in the finish make this taste exactly like a piece of pie. Not a trace of booze.

M: Smooth creamy body with light carbonation.

D: This is about the most drinkable 11.5 abv beer I've ever tasted. I would keep a case of this in the cellar if I could.

12 oz bottle split and poured into a Bruery tulip. 2010 on the label.

Thanks to Tickwolf77 for sharing this one on our bday!

A - Hazy mahogany amber with a low light khaki head that's retained very well for the alcohol. Spotty lace is left on the glass.

S - Sour green and red apple aroma with a touch of vinegar. Nice light amber malt backing and notes of maple syrup. A hint of alcohol right away that fades quickly.

T - Delicious apple cider vinegar sourness right up front with a fantastic amber brown malt flavor. A mild hop flavor of earth on the finish. I begin getting a tart cherry flavor as the brew warms up.

M - Great sourness up front but a massive dryness arrests the tongue almost instantly. Medium-light bodied but soft in the entry.

D - 11.5%? Are you kidding me? This is by far the most dangerous beer I've ever had. It drinks like it's 4%, no problem. You could get someone absolutely wrecked off this beer. It's not too sour at all. This one has a scary drinkability level.

On tap at Kuhnhenn, pretty pumped to catch this on the chalkboard and give it a try.

A - Pours a deep purpleish brown, visibly cloudy. Nice half finger worth of off white head. Looks about right for a bruin.

S - Cherry bomb! Wow, this thing is super cherry! A little bit of sourness to it as well, but the cherry completely dominates. Seriously smells like a freshly picked cherry, impressive!

T - Follows the nose well. Very cherry, but the sourness is more present here. It's a very well done balance between the sweet cherry and the sour bite. A nice showcase of Michigan cherries at their finest!

M - There is absolutely no way this beer is 15%. Only the slightest hint of alcohol bite which is quickly masked by the sweetness of the cherries. Wow!

O - Overall very impressed. Another successful venture into sours for Kuhnhenn!
