Loved this one. I was impressed with the smell and even more with the taste, even with the aroma one mouthful carried. I don't think I've had a rye before, but if they're this good I'll become a devotee. I'm especially pleased to see it's local to me.

Badger Hill Three Tree American Rye, Proudly Brewed in Minnesota, Brewed and Bottled by Badger Hill Brewing LLC, Minnetonka, MN.

What's In This Brew? 7 Various Malts, including Munich, Pale, and Caramel. American Hops, Plato: 12, IBU: 48. 5.2 % ABV.
So, let's open up and find out what's in it.

Clouded dark amber coloring, short, slim off-white head.

Aroma: spicy rye malt and hops are on top. Some fruity esters are in here, too, but it's mainly a nice balance of hops and malt.

Taste: Oh, this is nice one! Good and wet, rye malt drives it all with hops showcased in the forefront. Medium, but memorable bitterness. Medium bodied. Fairly lean, with loaded with character. Good drinking, an excellent nominee for a session or three.

Tasty, tasty stuff, perfectly balanced. Yeah, I can sit down with a few of these, nice work, Badger Hill.

A- Orange-golden with a one finger white head. Good retention and just a week bit of lacing. Perfectly clear.
S- The rye was a bit underwhelming to the nose. A faint bit of rye, but bread and grass were prevalent on the nose.
T- Good rye on the tongue though! A bit sweet and bready up front, but the rye takes a good bit of control midtongue with some peppery flavors and some nobletype hop flavors.
M- Body is fairly light, and the carbonation strikes me as kinda fizzy.
O- It's an ok rye beer. Good on the tongue but the body is a bit fizzy and the nose is underwhelming.

This beer is so bizarre I do not know how to honestly rate it. Seems like a different beer from previous reviewers.

Pours a dark golden color with an attractive two fingers of head that had great retention before settling to a thick cap. Some lacing is left down the glass.

They must of used a Belgian yeast strain in brewing this beer. A lot of clove and yeast phenols are upfront. There is a very faint hint of rye but the yeast phenols are overpowering.

Tastes like a Belgian IPA . A lot of yeast flavors that dominate. Some earthy and floral hops and plenty of bitterness. Tastes very dry and finishes with a lingering spice. Not much for rye as it seems the yeast got away from them when brewing this beer and is dominating.

Good body for a lower ABV beer. Suitably carboanted that gives a beer a pleasant texture.

An interesting beer, and even a pleasantly tasting beer, but I feel I have been mislead with the packaging. Maybe this brewer still has some kinks to work out of their process and lacks consistancy.

Picked up a single at Four Firkins and drank it back to back with Summit's one-off rye beer, Old 152. This one's a breadier rye ale, with lighter citrus spice and hops. It brings a nice, drinkable balance of the malts and mild hop to make a rye-forward beer that's complemented by citrus peel notes. Overall it's a good example of rye malt and a more sessionable rye ale.

As a self-appointed rye connoisseur, I needed to try this. Enough that I went to the very first tour the brewery did & tried it. Wasn't impressed. Hoped that they were still working out the kinks, because there just aren't many rye options around Minnesota. Picked up a 12 oz. single, & hope to pick up many more.

Pour is a pale, clear red; zero sediment. Nose leans towards the spicy side of rye, which I prefer. Very spicy as it warms. Cool bread. Not much else. Promising.

Three Tree American Rye puts a rye charge into my tongue. Yeeps! Spiciness that rivals Hunahpu's, without the chile heat. Scalding bitterness adds to the bruising impression. Bit of sweetness in the middle staves off complete palate collapse, pale malts bring things down a notch. Earthiness chews into the end-game, along with a vague note of late fall, under-the-damp-leaves mustiness. Certainly easy to sip.

Have to say, this is a leap ahead of the ho-hum homebrew-clone that I sampled on the tour; the mustiness in that was overpowering & rather foul. A little more cleaning up & this could rival Schell's Emerald Rye. Hops & rye: very good beer.

Produced a 1 finger beige head. Beer color is translucent gold.
Aroma is of rye bread, citrus hops.
Taste was similar, but with a light sweetness. Their is a medium, lingering bitterness. Mouth feel was a medium, and so was the carbonation.
Nice beer. Not great, but I'd have another.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Gold, good head.

Smell: Big toasted rye bread aroma.

Taste: Follows the smell, toasted rye bread. Spicy bread comes in solid and stays around. Solid rye through the finish.

Overall: Picked up a single to try. This beer has a huge amount of rye flavor. I couldn't pick out much for hop flavors, they keep in the background and let the rye shine through. Seems like a nice change-up fall beer, something to go between the porters and big ABV octoberfests.
