A: Pours a nice brown with deep redish hues around the edges. There is about a finger of light khaki colored head that settles quickly. There is no lacing as it drinks.
S: The nose consists of some fairly large sour notes, some dirty earthiness, and some spice. I'm getting sour cherry, raspberry, dirt, grass, and spice. I don't know if this beer is supposed to be sour, but it's totally evident that those scents dominate.
T: This beer starts off with some sour cherry tartness. That flavors transitions into some vegetable funk, and finishes with some stone fruits and spice. This is a wacky beer. I don't know if this is how it's supposed to taste, but it's not bad. It's a little weird and I could see a lot of people not liking this beer, but I think it's pretty good.
M: Medium bodied beer. There is a good amount of heft to this brew and the flavors are unmistakable. The weirdness coats the palate and the lasting impression is a mix of all the flavors in the beer.
O: This beer is just alright. It's a little bit off, but I kinda like it. I don't think I'd buy this bottle again, but I enjoyed drinking it. At the very least, for the weird taste bud experience. This beer definitely gets better as it warms.

This may have been my first rye beer, not sure. It was a nice change of pace. I had it with the dessert course at what is probably the best restaurant in DC - Komi. It was a nice finish to a most-excellent meal. Aroma was nice, very sugary with hints of cinnamon, clove, and honey. Taste was well-balanced.. not too sugary sweet, but definitely on the sweeter side (for a hop-head like me). I tasted brown-sugar, raisin, and caramel. It was a good beer, I'd have it again.
