Thanks for Jim (RatedZ) for send me this, the Black and the Rye.
Shared with my wife in tulip glasses.

A – A golden straw color, but a little more on the orange side, a decent haziness that is expected from the style. A large off white almost oat colored head that had great retention.

S – Oranges, maybe a little banana some Belgian yeast funk, a mild hop profile and some fresh baked bread to it.

T – Some fruity/citrus flavors in the beginning with a little funk intertwined some bready taste and also a little bitterness almost on the grassy side of the spectrum.

M – On the lighter side of medium bodied, but not to thin, decent carbonation.

O – I was left wanting a little more from this beer, but was left a little empty. I would put this more into the Belgian Pale category than the Belgian IPA. This still was a decent a respectable beer.

the pour delivers a copper coloured and clear beer with an off white head. minimal carbonation.

the nose is sweet with a little candy and some bubblegum with modest floral notes and some funky farmhouse dinge bringing up the rear.

the taste has some sweet and caramel tones. the farmhouse qualities are not overly prevalent. this is a pretty mild brew with light bitterness and light profile.

mouthfeel is surprisingly light. the body is a bit paltry and underfed.

overall, this brew is decent. it is not quite astonishing, but there is nothing abrasive and the taste is clean. decent.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

a: This was a clear, dark, golden orange color. It poured with a large, airy looking, big bubbled head that faded to moderate lace.

s: An appealing combination of wet, lightly funky, earthy hay, and lemony, flowery hops. There were also milder fruit elements of apple and pear.

t: The taste is a pretty big departure from the smell. Sweet, kind of muddled tasting grains dominate up front. The finish is a clash between a too strong Belgian yeast clove note and a largely flavorless, herbal hop flavor.

m: Light carbonation made this feel thin.

o: I was excited by what I smelled, but this just doesn't come together well. The bottle read "vintage 2011", so this may have just been too old. Oh well, I'll continue trying New Holland offerings because they do take chances and their bottles are reasonably priced.
