Gee "not impressed" sums it up so well. Maybe because I had high expectations. Rye, unfiltered - all good code words for something interesting. This beer isn't bad, it just doesn't have anything going for it. Highly filtered, no detectable rye taste, I might as well drink a PBR. Wonderful tap handle though.
Updated review: This is a very quafable beer and upon a few more pints, there is a detectable though very slight rye taste at the end, in with the hops. It's fine. Guess it would nice if there ever was time when a wit would be too much.
Serving type: on-tap

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear light amber with just a trace (almost none) of a white frizzy head that virtually was gone in a second or two and produced no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was very faint of a light grain malt, a faint odor of some grassy hops and a mild earthy yeast with a hint of rye and maybe a little citrus (lemon).
Taste was pretty bland yet quite crisp with a slight malty feel and a mild hint of rye, but not much else. The flavor faded from the taste buds almost immediately following the swallow.
Mouthfeel was extremely light in body with a watery texture and a light carbonation.
Overall this was a extremely light beer with a very light flavor and a mild carbonation. That being said it did possess a good smooth and easy drinkability and is ok if what your looking for, is a light beer with a low ABV…
