A couple of years ago Prima had 22 oz bottles of this for $8.95. We had several and went back a few days later for more.
L: Pours gold to amber with a slight haze under a vigorous cream colored foam cap.
S: Hoppy, spicy floral nose, spice from the rye, slight fruit but hard to pin down T: Richly flavored with spicy rye flavors, rich malt, fruit, some citrus.
F: Medium body and carbonation. Starts smooth but finishes with a little acid bite from the carbonation
O: The bottle was fresh, the flavors vibrant and well balanced and the beer went gloriously well with Italian food

From the 650 ml. bottle. I'm not sure why I did not inspect it in the store but it has a bottling date of 3/7/13! So I am drinking it on December 27, 2014. And it shows.

Pale yellow color with an overwhelming white fluffy head.

Mildly hopped, aroma but there is also a touch of toasted biscuit and some yeast notes.

Decent medium body.

Because of the age of this bottle the hops were more muted. I did get a solid enough rye, grain character but the hop bitterness had faded substantially. Not knowing how it tastes fresh I am not sure if the hops were more forward than what I got. Despite its age I drank all of it.
