3.13/5 rDev -16.1%
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.

3.6/5 rDev -3.5%
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.

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.

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.
