A: Brownish amber. Very clear. Off white foam that is continuously fed by extremely energetic carbonation.

S: Sweetness with honey, wheat bread and sunflower seeds. Mild almond nuttiness too. Wet oak.

T: Nice and light roasted grain, caramel and malt shines through at first. Spiciness of white pepper and fennel shines through towards the end and finishes crisp due to the high carbonation. A little bit of mineral steel flavor in the aftertaste. Slightly salty too.

M: Juicy. Nice and mellow, but still with a decent flavor profile. Bridges the gap in light beer and heavy micros. The aftertaste builds a little, but not overpowering.

O: I'm a sucker for highly carbonated beers. It helps this beer finish nicely and it really balances out the rye nicely. Not a flavor bomb like others, but I could drink a six pack of these happily.

Pours out to a thin white head and medium brown color. Crystal clear. Aroma is toasty malt, and a hint of brown sugar, cocoa and maple. Flavor is sweet grain oriented with nice toasty and nutty (pecans?) notes a nice carbonic bite at the end. Mouthfeel is light and slightly sticky. This is a unique brew that I really enjoy.

3.58/5  rDev +4.1%

Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of sweet malt, rye, toast, biscuit, and nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and rye flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of solid grain forward aromas and flavors.
