Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, FalconA!

Dark ruby and brown with a moderately-sized dark-brown head. Somewhat sticky. Spotted lace down the glass.

Malty sweet bread, banana, a touch of chocolate, and some smoke in the aroma.

The flavor is a bit more banana-forward than the aroma, along with mild chocolate and smoke. A bit of a rye bread character.

Medium bodied with lower carbonation. A bit watery.

I'm unfamiliar with the style, but this one seemed enjoyable enough.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium brown hue with a moderate haze and a strong effervescence. head is a thick finger of pillowy light-tan foam. I rather like it.

Smell: pretty sweet right off the bat, with a rather banana-like character. After that, a rich spice-cake like aroma comes to the fore. I like this take on rye spiciness, though it is a bit on the sweet side.

Taste: less sweet than the aroma, with a lot more bready character. The spiciness is also dialed way down; it's hard to explain the difference in grain character here -- I wouldn't call it stereotypically rye, but it's definitely different from barley or wheat. I actually like how the flavor is toned down a bit from the aroma. Interestingly, this beer gets more appealing in the aftertaste, after the sweetness and first hit of bread hit you. An interesting beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and concomitant creaminess. Sha bam!

Overall: this beer has a je ne sais quoi that appeals to me, although it also seems like it could be cleaned up a little. I'm not a pro on roggenbiers, but this one seems decent to me.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear deep copper. Light wisps and thin collar.

Smell - Belgian smelling, if I had to guess a yeast. Lots of spice. Clove. Faint rye spice, too.

Taste - Right up front, the yeast is strong. Banana. Then the rye takes over. The clove and spice comes back in the finish. Eh.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Spicy. Medium body. Sharp finish.

Overall - All over the place. Individual flavors are interesting but doesn't work at all together.

22 ounce bottle poured into a Unibroue tulip. Thanks Cheesemoose! Minimal head, some clear, oily lacing. Murky brown body. Aroma includes caramel, overripe banana, brown sugar. Taste follows suit with a little spice not on the back end and maybe a touch of smoke. New style for me, very interesting and quite tasty actually. I would think this would be extremely drinkable to most people, particularly those who like a nice dunkelweisse-like flavor.
