Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a cloudy, dark golden straw color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Splotches of lace left behind.  Doesn't look like a rye beer.

Earthy hop aroma with citrus sweetness and a subtle vegetal quality. Grass and pine followed by lemon peel and grapefruit.  Also some subtle sweetness and pale malt.

Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a strong bready/yeasty quality.   Not very rye like with lots of dry, earthy hops and zesty, peppery spice.  More like a hoppy wheat beer.  Hints of bread, yeast, citrus hops and pale malts.  Oddly metallic and astringent in finish.

Appearance is a dark straw-like color with a finger of head that dissipated quickly only leaving minimal lacing. The nose is faintly reminiscent of sour lemons. The flavor profile of this offering appears to be a blend of hefe and pils. I understand that there is rye malt used in the brewing of this beer, but I can hardly taste the rye notes. The finish was a bit dry and bitter.

Nice effort, but it needs to be kicked up at least one notch. Nevertheless, this is a refreshing beer for a warm and sunny day.

On-tap at Prime 16, served in a 3/4 pint glass.

A: Surprisingly light colored (for the style), with a clear gold body under a finger of creamy white head. Good retention and lace. Not what I'd expect for a Roggenbier, but an attractive brew in general.

S: Nothing but hops. Strong, juicy, piney, fruity hops. Smells like a DIPA and nothing else. Again, enjoyable but nothing like a Roggenbier.

T: Starts out with major hoppiness (more pine than grapefruit, along with some floral notes), but then transitions into a profoundly biscuity, crackery, spicy rye malt flavor. Moderate bitterness and rye bread on the finish. Pretty darn tasty.

M: Medium-bodied, plenty of lively carbonation. Ok.

O: I've only had a couple beers in this style before, and since neither was terribly hoppy or pale Uniform really caught me off guard. The rye element stays hidden for a long time, but when it does finally assert itself it's excellent. Tasty stuff.

Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a chalice. My first "roggenbier." I had to compare my tasting notes to the BJCP guidelines for sure on this one (style 15d.)

A- Pours an opaque marigold color with a thin, fine white head. Dissipates moderately quickly. Respectable yeast sediment in the bottle from the bottle conditioning.

S- Funky, sweet wheat/rye. Pleasant- reminds me of Duvel actually.

T- Bright, tangy, and balanced. Very refreshing. Slight fruity esters from being brewed at an elevated temperature. Lightly hopped.

M- Clean and refreshing. Full flavor with light body. Moderately high carbonation.

"By German law, at least 50% of the grist must be malted wheat to be a Dunkelweizen."

"Malted rye typically constitutes 50% or greater of the grist in a Roggenbier."

This is really a hybrid by these quotes from the BJCP manual. Very tasty and I will sure hope that Weyerbacher brings this into the usual rotation!

A - pours a marigold yellow color. Thightly packed fluffy white head. Quickly dissipated.

S - nose is dominated by citrus. Mostly orange and lemon peel. Grainy ceral notes linger in the background. As it warms the nose becomes lightly floral but the citrus turn catty.

T - flavors of multigrain bread on the tip of the tongue. Snappy citric bitterness enters quickly. Leafy greens and vegital notes mid palate. Finish is quick and fairly clean.

M - Med body. Crisp texture. Medium carb.

O - interesting beer. Not the best showing by Weyerbacher but certainly creative.

On-tap at Brewvival 2012

Poured a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Smells like a hoppy Saison, with lots of grass character. I'd never guess this was a Roggenbier (honestly, it's a new style to me). Mild flavors of grainy malt, sweet banana-and-clove yeast, and more grassy hops. Smooth mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Overall pretty forgettable, if I didn't take notes I would have overlooked it.
