Props to joemcgrath27 for this gem... Pours a slightly hazy golden orange, finger of head with solid retention and sporadic lacing. Nose is tangerine, coriander and pepper. Much like the nose with the coriander taking front row with the peppered rye bread lingering. Lighter bodied, smooth and dry on the finish. A solid brew that is reminiscent of spiced Belgian wit but the rye works so well with it. Delicious!!!

This pours a translucent golden orange colour with a thick white head that lingers for quite a while. The label states a single hop rye ale with corriander and the later is evident in the nose along with some earthy hop, yeast and bready malt. The taste reveals much of the same with the spiciest of rye bread coming to the front. The yeast is there as well but it's behind a bit of straw and grassy. There is a sweet maltiness that expresses itself right before the crisp hop bitterness finishes the taste. The carbonation is active but not overwhelming and balances off this beer quite nicely.

22oz bottle, quite the mix of styles and/or ingredient substitutions, it would seem. I'm guessing that the lack of filtering, and the coriander provide a certain Saison-like character, so hence the 'Spring' seasonal association.

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with one fat finger of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves some disintegrating iceberg shelf lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of spicy rye grain, acrid, almost phenolic yeast, a dry bar-top nuttiness, hints of benign citrus pith and pine resin astringencies, and maybe a touch of earthy white pepper and coriander. The taste is more of the same - gritty, acerbic rye malt, a lesser pale grainy, er, 'sweetness', peppy yeast, sedate coriander, and muddled west-coast hop bitters.

The bubbles are fairly active in their far-reaching fizzy and frothy emanations, the body a so-so middleweight, and actually rather smooth, both the rye and yeast having blinders on for this particular aspect, or something. It finishes well off-dry, the overall sweetness of the blended malts coming to bear, while the yeast, hops, and spice start concentrating on their feet.

Very much like a rye grain infused Belgian Pale Ale, or indeed a Saison, what with the heady yeast and coriander guest ingredient. Not bad, but kind of challenging, as the hops try to wiggle their way in, causing more confusion than harmony, but interesting all the same.

Moderately fizzy on the tongue, but not much foam in the glass. Attractive hazy light yellow color in the tumbler. Creamy mouthfeel is quite pleasant.

Really smooth grainy taste with an intriguing bitter tang. Brewer says there is some coriander added, which fortunately I don't taste, so it must be just enough to provide the woody hint. Hops are Ultra.

Just enough sweetness to go with the sharp edge. Mellow and spicy. Really a perky and highly drinkable rye ale. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at 99 Bottles in Federal Way.

22oz : tulip pint

Clear, golden yellow with a fizzy, foamy white head with great retention.

The aroma is predominately spicy hops with a light nuttiness and bready malt backbone.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

I was hoping for more rye character, but the spiciness strikes me more as a a hop character, which is pleasant, but not what I expected in the style.
