3.98/5  rDev +8.7%

Pours a hazy copper. The bright, white head fades to a patchy film. Citrus and apricot fruitiness are most evident, with a bready, pale maltiness underneath.

Bready and toasty malts lend a light sweetness. Apricot and citrus notes become evident in the center. There's a mild, resiny, hop bite and a light bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied, enough carbonation to keep things from feeling watery. There's a nice dry character in the finish.

Tasty, balanced with a good variety of flavors.

Well, I'd like to agree with Ruslanchick (sp?) that Fiddler's Hearth is a cool bar. Also had this on tap there. Slightly hazy copper brown with gold highlights the brighten things up. White head, a couple of pinkies' width. A whispy cover sticks around. Spotty lacing, drapy globs.

A full wheat, banana profile to the nose, but with dark bread and a grassy, spicy kick at the end.

White bread up for a quick up front. Banana, with the rye spice and tanginess adding some grass and overripe=fruit qualities. Hops contribute a bit of that, as well. Bread feel and taste become a wee bit darker, grainier.

Despite the bready taste and feel, a light body. At 5.2ABV, pretty damn sessionable. But... it tastes like a pretty good wheat with some slight hop and rye additions. It could be more.

Imperial pint on tap at the Fiddler's Hearth in Austin (a very nice place).

My friend ordered a Guiness on nitro tap, which takes some time. I don't know if they poured my beer and let it sit while they waited for the Guiness, but there was absolutely no head on it. The beer was a very hazy orange and what head I saw was white. Very disappointed with the appearance of this beer.

The aroma and flavor left three strong impressions: hefeweizen flavor that I can best describe as bready, cinnamon, and lemon. Not a bad flavor, but not something I would seek out either. Mouthfeel was good and complemented the beer well. Despite the unattractive look of the beer and unremarkable flavor, I would definitely have had another. It did leave a positive impression...but that might just be homerism.

I had this on tap at San Antonio Homebrew Supply.

It poured darked amber with a white head that didn't stick around. It smelled sweet and spicy. The taste was malty up front with a lot of clove/coriander-like spiciness.

This one surprised me and I'll be looking for it again.

Reviewed 11/6/2008 (Tap @ Flying Saucer, Houston, TX): Pours a cloudy darker (than the Roggienbier) yellow-brown body. Small white head. Pungent aroma, almost skunky. Some fruitiness. Fruity taste, same skunk. Taste of strawberries. Somewhat fruity. Tastier as it warms up. Watery palate. Eh. I prefer the regular Roggenbier.

On draft at the Flying Saucer in Houston.

Pours a not-so-dunkel into the glass. Medium gold/brown with white head. Aroma has a nice malt sweetness along with banana and cloves.

This beer has an exceptional body to go along with a nice dryness from the rye.

3.43/5  rDev -6.3%

A: Pours a murky amber/brown color. A small white and bubbly head forms, but recedes fast. Lots of bubbles are rising to the top. Not much lace to speak of.
S: Buttery malt with some caramel. Bananas and clove. Other kind of bland citrus aromas, bubblegum. Were is the rye?
T: Again, a unique buttery malt taste is up front. Sweet caramel malt as well. Banana esters and bubblegum. Not much rye to speak of.
M/D: At first a quick snap of carbonation that gives this beer a refreshing quality. A medium body that becomes more creamy as it warms up. Easy enough to drink, though a one and done.

A Dunkel Roggenbier? Very unique IMO, but not really what I am looking for in a rye beer. Which is a shame, with Full Moon I thought this sort of thing was right up their ally. A nice try, but next.
