I had this on-tap in a pint glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: medium brown hue with a light haze; not much head due to the pour. Murky and autumnal - I like it!

Smell: lightly sweet and fruity; a little surprising for a rye. There's a little pear aroma here which I quite like.

Taste: very nutty with a little bit of an orchard fruitiness (that pear again); subtle and to great effect. A little bit of toastiness rounds it out quite well. Very autumnal and satisfying.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a well integrated carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: this beer just hit the spot for my mood on this chilly October day. Great!

This year BB changed the recipe for their annual fall seasonal and added a percentage of Rye to the malt bill. Served in straight pint glass. Poured a slightly chill-hazed coppery amber color with about 1-1/2 inches of of just off-white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma was nicely malty, had a touch of sweetness and had just enough hops to be interesting. Then there was a very nice underlying Rye sharpness that tied everything together. On the tongue the story was pretty similar, solid base malts, nice hop seasoning and a good rye crispness.

The body was nicely full and smooth and wasn't at all heavy or sticky. Drinkability was very good, several pints went down easily and I suspect more will in the next few weeks. Overall, a pretty nice take on a seasonal style. A must try if you see it and perhaps worth a bit of effort to seek out.
