Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of earth, rye, herbal hop, and slight honey aromas. Taste is much the same with rye, earth, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with lots of earthy rye qualities, but nothing too memorable in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Attractive orangey amber in the Affligem chalice. A little hazy with a nice white foam that renews itself with every sip. Tangy and silky mouthfeel with lots of creamy carbonation.

Rich and mellow grainy taste followed by a hoppy bitterness. I forgot about the honey, but it does seem to mellow the scratchy rye a little. Not a bad combination, and I''m not a huge honey fan. A little murky at the finish.

Refreshing watery taste along with the grainy maltiness. Thoroughly drinkable and flavorful brew. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice on 29th in Eugene.

22oz bottle served cold in pint glass. Beer is a very pale amber, crystal clear, and forms very little white head. Aroma is not awesome, lagery and even a little bit skunky, with a hint of residual malt sugar. Flavor is more mellow and pleasant. A gentle dose of hops complements the natural grainy bitterness of the rye, which is itself pretty tame. Pretty fizzy, which works out well for the summer ale style, and helps bring forward the spicy and lemon flavors.

I like rye beers quite a bit. This one is pretty OK, but totally sessionable -- in stark contrast to the usual hop wallop of ales from America typically featuring rye.
