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

12oz bottle poured into a chalice. My first "roggenbier." I had to compare my tasting notes to the BJCP guidelines for sure on this one (style 15d.)

A- Pours an opaque marigold color with a thin, fine white head. Dissipates moderately quickly. Respectable yeast sediment in the bottle from the bottle conditioning.

S- Funky, sweet wheat/rye. Pleasant- reminds me of Duvel actually.

T- Bright, tangy, and balanced. Very refreshing. Slight fruity esters from being brewed at an elevated temperature. Lightly hopped.

M- Clean and refreshing. Full flavor with light body. Moderately high carbonation.

"By German law, at least 50% of the grist must be malted wheat to be a Dunkelweizen."

"Malted rye typically constitutes 50% or greater of the grist in a Roggenbier."

This is really a hybrid by these quotes from the BJCP manual. Very tasty and I will sure hope that Weyerbacher brings this into the usual rotation!

On-tap at Brewvival 2012

Poured a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Smells like a hoppy Saison, with lots of grass character. I'd never guess this was a Roggenbier (honestly, it's a new style to me). Mild flavors of grainy malt, sweet banana-and-clove yeast, and more grassy hops. Smooth mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Overall pretty forgettable, if I didn't take notes I would have overlooked it.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Served in a signature tulip glass, a pale golden color with a compact white head; decent retention and lacing. I didn't get too much from the aroma, but honestly this was mainly because the guy sitting next to me was going heavy on the old bay seasoning. heh. As for taste, grassy hops with a good balance of banana esters, with afterthoughts of citrus and a bit of spice and hay funk. Strangely seemed a bit more Belgian than German. Light-bodied and very drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is a dark straw-like color with a finger of head that dissipated quickly only leaving minimal lacing. The nose is faintly reminiscent of sour lemons. The flavor profile of this offering appears to be a blend of hefe and pils. I understand that there is rye malt used in the brewing of this beer, but I can hardly taste the rye notes. The finish was a bit dry and bitter.

Nice effort, but it needs to be kicked up at least one notch. Nevertheless, this is a refreshing beer for a warm and sunny day.

A - Pours a slightly hazy medium gold color with an ultra thin layer of foam, gentle carbonation, and very sticky lacing.

S - Slightly grassy with a little earthy funk and a slight twang. Also pulling out a yeasty/bready character along with a slight aroma of rye malt, some some citrus, and clove.

T - Follows the nose. Everything blends together and swirls around the palette - bready and doughy with a yeast flavor, cloves and grassiness with some mild tart/sour funk, and a very assertive citrus bitter close. There's a little touch of bananas buried in there and everything lingers on the palette along with the IPA bitterness for a substantially dry finish up front, then the tartness kicks in (almost a lemony tartness in the back of the mouth) and makes the back of the tongue water like crazy.

M - Medium body.

O - It's an IPA, no wait, it's a wheat beer, no, hmmm, is it a funked out pilsner? It's an odd duck, no doubt, but most importantly...it works. This is outside of the box for Weyerbacher and highly recommended.

On Tap at Craft Ale House.

Uniform sports a much lighter color than the other Roggen's I've had. This one is lighter in color with a pale yellow hue with just a bit of scattered white bubbles on top, moderate lace though. Not very foamy like most roggens tend to be.

Smell is pretty timid, I really had to get my nose in there. Smells of ripe banana, fresh wheat, an nice spicy rye component. Pale malt is apparent. Some citrusy grassy scent from a fair hopping I assume. The rye seems to boast out with warming.

Im guessing this is sort of an offshoot of the traditional roggen. A bit lighter in body, a interplay between rye and wheat, and a summer like thrist quencher, while more traditional roggens have a maltier build. Im really diggin this. The wheat and spicy rye work out well. Pale malt shines in the middle with some citrusy hops towards the finish. I wish this was 5%

Feel is a bit thinner than others in the style. A step down from medium with less of a malty build. A spicy characteristic in the middle and a juicy finish. Im digging that this goes down real easy and would be a great contender for a summertime gulper, if not for the 7%

I really like this offering from Weyerbacher. It was not what I was expecting and it has a bold taste. Hopefully I can snag some bottles of this. Weyerbacher should make this a summer seasonal

On draft at Capones

Pours with a soft, soapy, off-white head over a cloudy golden body. Great lacing.

Aromas are faint ( might just be too cold), but include oranges and rye bread.

Citrusy and grassy flavors - well hopped. Light banana quality in the back. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, yet smooth in the finish.

This being my first Roggenbier, it's a bit hard to rate vs the style, but it's a very enjoyable beer nonetheless

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a cloudy, dark golden straw color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Splotches of lace left behind.  Doesn't look like a rye beer.

Earthy hop aroma with citrus sweetness and a subtle vegetal quality. Grass and pine followed by lemon peel and grapefruit.  Also some subtle sweetness and pale malt.

Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a strong bready/yeasty quality.   Not very rye like with lots of dry, earthy hops and zesty, peppery spice.  More like a hoppy wheat beer.  Hints of bread, yeast, citrus hops and pale malts.  Oddly metallic and astringent in finish.
