A: Cloudy brown hue with a thin, cream-colored and sudsy head and minimal lacing

S: Spicy rye; herbs, and grass; this is really bready and grainy and spicy--quite spicy--with some subtle fruit aromas

T: Such pleasant rye spiciness and a touch smokey; so bready--crisp rye is spicy and flavorful--I love how the rye is the star here; definitely some cloves and bananas from the yeast

F: Creamy in the finish

O: This is refreshing and tasty and pretty unique--it's nice to have a rye with out the hops; refreshing

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery brown color, with a large off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized rye malts, some spice, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a mild burst of sourness that it quickly followed by some sweet flavors of caramel, rye spice and some fruit. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is significant but not strong and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Pours a deep reddish-brown with ruby edges. Small cream colored head which doesn't stick around. Decent lacing. No noticeable haze but the color is dark enough that I can't see through it all the way.

Some piney hop aromas. Slightly earthiness and some spiciness.

Spicy flavor to start. Pepper, pine and smoke. Crisp malt. Caramel and leather.

Crisp mouth feel, somewhat thin bodied. Noticeable carbonation.

Overall, some interesting flavors but it didn't seem to blend very well. Each was a distinct piece rather than melding together into a whole.
