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.

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.
