3.7/5  rDev +14.6%

On tap at the brewpub in Sisters.

Hazy light amber with a limited head and a few streaks of sticky lacing.

Aroma: Fruity. Citrus hops with a faint baked bread.

Flavor: good balance of fruity hops, spicy rye and subtle malts. White pepper in the mildly spicy finish.

Feel: Medium-light body with appropriate crisp carbonation.

O: recommended as an alternative to a APA.

One of the lighest rye beers i've had. It's brewed with some wheat in there, as well as rye. It's incredibly cloudy and a bright white froth sits atop.

It's a really potent aroma. Strong yeast and some really bready cereal, rice puffs.

Quite drinkable, but becomes a bit skuzzy as it warms up. Malt forward brew, with a lot of really nice complexity from the rye. It's just a bit to pale and the body is light enough that it wasn't the winner from their lineup.
Further, I was expecting a good dark brown elixir, kind of surprised to see this.

22oz bottle from "Habits" in S.Salem. $3.99 Slightly hazy golden ale with a good sized thick and frothy white head. Not getting a lot of aroma.. mainly caramel,biscuit and a touch of rye. Smooth rye bread taste, caramel and some phenolics like rye weiss !! Not spicy though. Nice smooth low carbonated palate which i prefer. Not the strongest rye tasting rye beer but certainly very drinkable on a nice warm Easter

on tap at the brewery.

turbid apricot wit ha soapy etch across the top. Touch of fruit and ester up front is like a white grape, then follow thru with a near clay yeast character and a touch of astringency on the back end. Flavor is grainy and sweet, almost tastes under attenuated (although I can't really know the intent here), touch bitter with a light oatmeal flavor. Full bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. Meh.

Three Creeks doesn't offer a wheat beer or hefeweizen. Instead, this densely clouded ale brewed with 20% rye malt serves as something of a substitute. It is powdered ochre color, exceptionally turbid, and sports a punky, yeast-driven aroma. The taste has tangy yeasts with a punchy integration of northwest bittering hops and dry cereal graininess.

Stonefly scores well for delivering just the right amount of hops and attitude. It is crisp, invigorating, and best served cold.

2.13/5  rDev -34.1%

Cloudy straw colour with no head. Not great.

Very light malty aroma. No real rye notes. A touch of fruit.

Smooth, crisp sweet malt. No rye. No hops. No esters. Bland.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Fine.

A pale, cloudy, bland ale which doesn't do what it says on the package. Disappointing.
