look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

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.

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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint.

A - Pours a hazy straw color with a small, quickly dissipating head.

S - I don't know what to make of the smell. It has characteristics of a RyePA with rye and hops, but also a lemon zest and yeast presence. The worst part is probably the funky, salty meat type of smell I get with it all. Not a very pleasant aroma.

T - The taste is much better than the smell. If I had to describe the flavors it would be a rye wit. It has the sharp, spicy rye flavors coupled with an obvious citrus wheat flavor. The aftertaste is of lingering bitter rye and some floral hops. It is very interesting, and not bad.

M - The body is a solid medium and the carbonation is tingly. Stands up to the strong rye and wheat flavors.

O - My first beer of the style, so I didn't know what to expect. The smell was not good and had the worst of the wheat characteristics, with that hot dog smell. The flavors were enjoyable and the rye combines with the citrus and wheat to work pretty well. Weyerbacher has made some interesting beers in the Brewer's select series but I think this is probably one of the most unique. I will try it again to see if my opinion improves when my senses aren't taken completely off guard by the flavors. Overall, a pretty good beer and I want to try another beer of the style for comparison.

This poured out as a hazy looking yellowish gold color. The head was foamy and white... The lacing was decent. The smell of the beer was a little on the sour side with some herbal notes to it. The taste of the beer had a pretty good balance of funk with wheat overtones. The mouthfeel was pretty well carbonated and had a decent smoothness to it also. Overall this beer is pretty good, I haven't had too many of this style before to really compare but from what I could tell it wasn't bad.

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.

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.
