First one I poured at refrigerator temp and the head built up to about two fingers. When I poured the second one it was a bit warmer right out of the basement and not so much head. The beer is bright gold with a slight haze, but no sediment. Lots of carbonation.
The smell is pretty funky. The clovey hefe smell domimates, but the sweet hoppy smell is also there.
Taste is the same as the smell. The hefe yeast and the piney hops take turns.
Pretty good beer. I'll probably try to get more before it's gone. The style is listed as a KrystalHopfenRoggenBocken

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.

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.

On-tap at Prime 16, served in a 3/4 pint glass.

A: Surprisingly light colored (for the style), with a clear gold body under a finger of creamy white head. Good retention and lace. Not what I'd expect for a Roggenbier, but an attractive brew in general.

S: Nothing but hops. Strong, juicy, piney, fruity hops. Smells like a DIPA and nothing else. Again, enjoyable but nothing like a Roggenbier.

T: Starts out with major hoppiness (more pine than grapefruit, along with some floral notes), but then transitions into a profoundly biscuity, crackery, spicy rye malt flavor. Moderate bitterness and rye bread on the finish. Pretty darn tasty.

M: Medium-bodied, plenty of lively carbonation. Ok.

O: I've only had a couple beers in this style before, and since neither was terribly hoppy or pale Uniform really caught me off guard. The rye element stays hidden for a long time, but when it does finally assert itself it's excellent. Tasty stuff.

Cheers!

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!

A - pours a marigold yellow color. Thightly packed fluffy white head. Quickly dissipated.

S - nose is dominated by citrus. Mostly orange and lemon peel. Grainy ceral notes linger in the background. As it warms the nose becomes lightly floral but the citrus turn catty.

T - flavors of multigrain bread on the tip of the tongue. Snappy citric bitterness enters quickly. Leafy greens and vegital notes mid palate. Finish is quick and fairly clean.

M - Med body. Crisp texture. Medium carb.

O - interesting beer. Not the best showing by Weyerbacher but certainly creative.

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.

4.38/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
