Reddish amber liquid with a haze of suspended particulates. Khaki head slight lace. Smells of earth, sod, and citrus. Taste is quite sour with a strong floral, spicy character, earthiness and citrus as well. Moderate bitterness. Medium body slightly watery mouthfeel. Dry, mildly bitter lingering finish. Interesting creation.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is hoppy, some rye and grains. Taste is spicy, hops, rye, some bitterness,a bit of grains, good flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer.

Just saw this beer for the first time recently in a random beer store, looks like it's already been out for a couple months. After getting the chance to chat with Mark Stutrud from Summit earlier this year about the Unchained series when Saga was released, its something i'll never pass up. Much like Goose's Fulton & Wood series, each brewer gets creative freedom to brew their own unique recipe.

Deeply saturated hazed auburn, reddish russet in the light, with a billowing craggy head of eggshell foam that forms crazy peaks & valleys as it settles. Sticky concentric rings of lace in the glass. Ample head retention.

Sweet and spicy grainy rye aroma, specialty grains.

Lightly bitter with a spicy grainy breadiness, smooth and somewhat full bodied. Malt driven, some bittering hops but not much in the way of hop-derived flavors. Not bad though, and worth trying for Rye Beer fans.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a dark amber in color…fairly dense, only mildly transparent... some off-white head did form a thin layer on top…(3.75/5)

Smell: I know it’s a rye ale right away with its distinct sour smell…there is some peppery spice happening here…a faint sweet creaminess as well…paler malts, yeast, barley, caramel, and a touch of citrus round out the aroma…way more spiciness in the nose as this brew warms…(3.75/5)

Taste: Much like the nose, heavy spicy rye in the front…sweetness, a touch of cream, more spicy rye, sour mash, wheat and earthy hops in the middle…finishes very thin, more rye spice with some pale/bread malts…mild bitterness more apparent as it warms…(3.75/5)

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, it is a touch watery…some in the rye carbonation that does bring a spiciness to the palate…creamy, spicy and smooth…it does finish a bit dry…(3.75/5)

Overall: Not a flavor I normally go for, but this one may open up a new door for me…the spicy rye flavor is good and balanced very well with grains, corn and hops here…I really like it…my major knock is it’s a bit watery, but that’s just me being critical...summit unchained series has been a great find for me and this one lives up to previous offerings…definitely worth trying and if I’m lucky enough to see it again, I will be picking one more up…(3.75/5)
