look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clean yellow/ orange-ish color with a white head. In the aroma, a really faint rye note. In the taste, a sweet rye maltiness, almost fruity. A smooth and light bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry fruitiness in the aftertaste. Quite thin and not much in aroma.

Serving type: on-tap

My first beer from Arcadia and my first rye beer. I am kind of tired of every american beer being over the top with hops. Don't get me wrong this is not a bad beer, it's just not balanced. Another beer in the mad arms race over how much hops can you add to a beer before your taste buds can't recognize the taste.

The beer is golden with decent head and good lacing. The smell as you can imagine is floral, grapefruit and grass. The taste is way too bitter. I can barely taste the malt and what I do taste has a funk off flavor. Why put rye in a beer that you can't taste the malt?

on tap at khyber in philly

Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick crop of white head resting on top. Retains pretty well while leaving some patchy lacing on the glass.

Soft hop bitterness in the nose with some fruit sweetness. A dash of pineapple and bread with some faint buttyness. Rye spice is understated.

A little bitter and hoppy up front with some citrusy notes. Pineapple and orange with some sweet tones and a dash of rye. A bit bready and buttery in the malt backbone. Touches of caramel towards the finish, which is a little bitter.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. This is way understated on the rye presence, and the hints of butter don't really help either.

Serving type: on-tap

Undated 12 oz can purchased near brewery about 3 months ago and kept refrigerated.
Pours golden with a small, partially durable head.

Smells spicy and floral, rather as expected. But the flavor clearly reveals wild yeast. Unintentional I believe. So much for unpasteurized in this case. The farmhouse effects actually fit somewhat well with the spicy rye/hop profile and don't completely ruin the beer, but it certainly doesn't taste like it should.

Feel: medium-light body is properly carbonated but a bit harsh.

Serving type: can

3/5  rDev -19.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, hazy, orange-brown in color, moderate carbonation

Smell: citrus hops and rye

Taste: orange, floral hops, some rye, and lemon

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation, sweet start with a bitter middle that gets less bitter on the finish

Drinkability: This is a decent beer, but I do not get as much of a rye taste here as I do in other rye beers. It is ok and if you like bitter beers, pick this up. However I have had better in the style.
