A - Two finger foamy white head that dissipates in a few minutes. Translucent orangish appearance.
S - Smells mostly like a belgian with cereal malt characteristics. Can't find much hop in the aroma.
T - The belgian yeast completely dominates this flavour profile. Sour rye aftertaste is unpleasant and lingers. I was wishing for more IPA attributes from this one but something's just not working here. A bit of spiciness on the end.
M - Smooth upfront and a crisp carbonation at the back end. Pretty nice actually. The can helps it keep the smoothness.
O - The flavour doesn't do it for me on this combo. I like trying new things and new combos but the aftertaste on this will keep me from trying it again.

Was intrigued by this beer and interested to try a new brewery around the way. Unfortunately, it was a product of poor brewing techniques. They may have crashed too early or mashed at weird temps. but the beer just came out tasting and smelling like Heinz ketchup with some creamed corn.
I truly hope I had a bad batch.
Ketchup, Heinz Ketchup. DMS.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, earth, slight herbal hop, and Belgian yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with rye, herbal hop, and yeast flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with strong rye and Belgian yeast qualities in the aroma and flavor.

This is a review of Headland’s Groupe G, a Belgian-style RyePA, so named in honor of the General Sabotage Groupe of Belgium from WWII. (Via their website.)
This pours with a lightly golden toasted color. Mildly hoppy aroma with some pronounced esters on the nose. The floral note dominates the aroma. It comes across as I sip it as well, although its complemented by a rye spice, like a touch of cracked pepper, and a bit of a floral, herbal note to it. Almost a muted bitterness. The combination, while interesting, doesn’t work for me as it feels like there’s just too much going on when one or two of the combinations would have been fine. My first brew from these guys. I’m looking forward to trying more.
