Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a quite hazy peach amber with a thin white head that dissipated to a thin film and ring around the glass. Interesting aroma of citrus, light stone fruit with distinct spicy rye. Flavor is wheat and lemon that are light enough to showcase the peppery, slightly sour rye. Finishes slightly sour with bittering hops. Light bodied. Nice balance between a hefeweizen type body and rye, both complement each other nicely. Refreshing. The third rye beer released in bottles from this brewery. All were enjoyable.

Bronze, WBC

Hazy straw-golden body - huge notes of rye, a rather strong bitterness presumably derived slightly more from the rye than the hops, which are driven by notes of grapefruit rind. The finish is a bit grainy for my tastes - not my favorite Reuben's offering.
