Interesting a rye malt beer in honor of the patron saint; odor; Fruity mermaid, in addition to the taste of a bitter bitter after which a dry finish makes thirsty; A rye beer in balance proves difficult this has been a good success

Bottled
Pours a very very light brown body with huge foaming thick white head that stays
Big rye & hops aroma
The hoppiest rye beer I've had and I think that creates a unbalanced conflictin flavour that is certainly interesting
Slightly to much fizz tbh

33cl bottle. Clear orange pour with a medium height white head with good retention. Smells like honey, citrus and pineapple. The taste is more bitter and dry than the aroma suggested. Herbal hops, some honey and citrus.
