A very hoppy citrus nose leads this beer, with low malt and high hops in flavor. The Belgian yeast leaves the palate creamy instead of dry. This is an awe-some beer for Belgian and hop fans alike.

Really interesting concept here by the Kuhnhenn Brothers...an IPA, but with Belgian aspects. The beer pours deep ruby into a tulip, a fairly thick head that sticks around for some time before fading off into the sunset. Big piney hop aromas, which pairs, very interestingly, with the spicy Belgian yeast. Yum.
The flavour on this was similar to the nose: it features a strong malty backbone with a strong, piney hop zing, but then pairs that with the cloves and coriander that one would expect from a Belgian beer. Really unique combination.
The mouthfeel on this is good, full, and enjoyable. Drinkability, also good. Smooth drinking, reasonably priced, good beer.
The bottom line: Aldebaran is yet another interesting brew by Kuhnhenn, combining the typical IPA style with the Belgian yeast has created a tasty new hybrid that I will be having again.

Big thanks to TheBlackMallard for the chance to try this beer.
dark amber red color is very clear, creamy head is a light tan color.
Resiny pine like hops - Savory spices a little malt sweetness shines through
Crisp hops a little residual sweetness and carmel flavor balance the hops well. pepper cloves and a hint of banana
Creamy, great mouth feel smooth small bubbles in the carbonation scrub your mouth go eliminate lingering bitterness
Very drinkable beer Higher gravity but does not taste it, mmmm good.
Thanks again to
