Taste - Quite sweet. Pineapple. Tropical fruits. Yeasty and some grains. Rye comes up in the back.

Mouthfeel - Quite sweet and heavy. Nothing like a wit. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Meh. Too sweet. Uninspired rye.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium small foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by quite a bit of tart notes with some light spicy rye notes that are also perceptible. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. Not bad but a lot more sour then expected which makes it hard to distinguish some of the rye malt.
