an insanely pale beer, almost white in color, looking more like a Berliner than anything else, hazy and yellow, like its all wheat, but there is some substantial rye under the lace airy white head. nose shows some mild spice and plenty of malt heft for its color, and the flavor agrees. spicy from the rye, cracked white pepper earthiness and a dried fruit aspect as well. some wheat in here too though, there has to be. carbonation and body are both up for how light it is, and the rye is the dominant flavor, although not out of balance. I may prefer a moderately larger hop plan for this thing, give it a finish, but I must admit this is extremely unique as a session beer with the hops so mellow. its refreshing but a little filling I found, but still appropriate in hot weather. I like how pale it is, lets the rye show though really brilliantly. my first mayflower beer has me keen for more from them, and that's always a good sign. on tap at the farmhouse burlington

I was able to have the opportunity to go to the Mayflower Brewing Company's Tasting room today and tasted some of there beers and this one stood out to me as something unique. I had it on tap in a 7 oz taster and then purchased a growler to share with my family when I got home.
Appearance: pale cloudy yellow estimated SRM of 1.25-1.5. the unfiltered beer resembles a nice unfiltered wheat beer
Smell: slight tart/sour smell right off the back can pull a noise of the rye and then the dwindling of american wheat malts.
Taste: slightly tart and sour from the rye malts and a hint of wheat malt sourness and slight sweetness of the pilsner base malts.
Mouthfeel: a wonderful crisp dry light body summer session ale

Overall: Overall I am really impressed with this beer as an all around summer session ale that is light bodied, crisp and slightly sour mouthfeel makes a beer that is worth bringing to your next cook out or gathering to share with all or just for yourself and significant other at the beach. If you are looking for an alternative to your usual summer wheat beer you should check this one out if you get the opportunity to get your hands on some.
