Notes/Commercial Description:
Named for White Rock Lake and the cyclists who loop it, Rock Ryder is a refreshing, crowd-pleasing, session beer. But just because it's easy drinking doesn't mean it's got training wheels. With peppery notes from rye malt, a citrusy aroma and dry finish, our American Rye Wheat pulls ahead of the pack. And we're proud to donate a portion of the proceeds of Rock Ryder to For The Love of the Lake, a community organization that volunteers their time keeping our little oasis in the city sparkling. So sit back and enjoy the Ryde.

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a hazed gold color with an impressively stiff white head. Sheet lacing is nice too.

Nose is tangerine flesh, tangy wheat and limeade...interesting melange of citrusy and sweet aromas.

Taste shows lots of pithy citrus and hearty grains...wheat and rye both make sense. The beer is thick and creamy with just enough sweetness to offset the lemon peel-esque bitterness. It's almost there....just a little tweak here or there to keep the flow together would make this a very good beer. Maybe tone down the pith and give it more fleshy fruit and a bit more yeast presence.

On tap at Goodfriend. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of biscuit malt, as well as some rye and caraway. The flavor is more of the same. The rye is quite strong, as is some lighter orange citrus and lemon notes. I also get some yeast and biscuit malt notes in the flavor. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
