From latiendadelacerveza. On Bavaria glass. Watching Silicon Valley 1x05. My first roggen. Reminds me a hefe but with more caramel flavor. Very drinkable and pleasant even being 2 months before BB date. Not much foam.

Oxblood with creamy steady beige froth. Yeasty banana and clove nose - so far, so dunkelweiss.
Apple cake and banana bread, a spicy rye hit, and winter spice hops end with a touch of grass.
Kola nut and salty caramel comeback and numbing tingly linger. Crisp, very fizzy, light yet chewy .

Perfectly nice - plenty of spice, decent body, reasonable depth. Just not especially a rye beer. No closer to having insight into this style...

50cl bottle poured into Spaten seidel

BBE 26 Oct 2011

A- Mahogany brown body with ruby highlights, excellent clarity. Head is initially 3 finger and thick but reduces quickly with little to no lacing.

S- Light clove and banana notes, hint of peppery spice.

T- Light weizen notes - clove and banana. Hint of tanginess from the rye in the medium dry finish. Overall a bit thin in the flavour profile.

M- Medium body and high carbonation. Refreshing.

D- A light refreshing profile, just a bit thin in the flavour profile and poor appearance - possibly due to age. Will need to revisit with a fresh version

Had high hopes for this when it was bought and a lot of preconceived notions of what I was getting myself into.

In the bottle this had a restrained and fairly deep rye aroma which is savoury and builds expectation. Easily pours a one and a half inch tight tan head. Crystal copper/reddish colour with a degree of orange sparkle.

Taste-well, lets just call it pretty hollow. So disappointingly little stuffing that it borders on anorexic. There is a slight trace of dark mealiness but in general it is just dominated by a flavour of bubble gum. Ends with a degree of sweeetness but it just lacks density, weight and substance.

16.9 oz dark brown bottle. Freshness date on label.
Served in a 20oz nonic tumbler.
It pours a cola-shaded dark amber color with a fast-foaming, yet fast-fading off-white head. Some sticky and webby lacing last halfway through the glass.
The aroma is at first wet malty, then the smell of rye crackers push through. The light smell of mixed fruit with a little citrus and dried flowers fades in and out. A faint whiff of white rum is noticed, as is a little fresh cut grass.
Tastes of fresh rye, dried malt, caramel, figs, peppery spices, ripe pear and resinous hops (in that order) come through separate, yet balanced nicely. Just a touch of metallic tang is revealed in the aftertaste. A hint of dark rum comes out in the breath.
This a is very nice summertime beer. It starts out dry in the finish, then more full and wet as it warms.
Great BBQ beer!

Have been wanting to get my hands on a Roggenbier for a while now, so I snatched this up when I saw it in Bavaria.

.5L, best before 8/8/11.

Pours a nice, hazy dark amber with a modest beige head-- large-bubbled, average retention.

The aroma is a lot like a wheat beer, with mainly fruity esters, though some interesting spice in the background.

Good malt complexity, though not necessarily suggestive of rye (Roggen). Drinks very much like a Dunkelweizen, actually, but with even more malt flavor. Bread crusts, light chocolate. The carbonation is very effervescent but soft, the moutfeel overall a bit watery.

Nothing too exciting here. I'm glad I found this Roggen, though I was expecting something with more spicy rye flavor.

A: The beer is clear dark amber in color and poured with a finger high white head that died down rather quickly. A slight amount of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles.
S: There are light aromas of caramel and toasted malts in the nose along with some notes of spices. Malty flavors stand out but there are also some hints of spices and sourness from the rye.
T: The overall taste has a slight amount of sweetness and some notes of caramel.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate and has a light to moderate amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish.
D: The beer is very easy to drink and quite sessionable.

A- Red Dark Amber, poured with a finger thick head that died down to a thin sticky layer

S- Wow this is complex, Banana, Vanilla, caramel, spices, very much like a weiss

T- Starts with a very fast kick of sour then you have a complex mix of bread/rye with spices and then a fruity toffee flavor finishing it off. Not at all what I was expecting from the smell

M- Light-Medium body with almost on oily after feel, light carbonation

D- Very interesting beer that I think everyone should give at least a try. A little bit for everyone in the flavor of it.

Cola black with a nice pearly, champagne coloured head that rises above the lip of the glass like bread, but then collapses like soufflé. Nicely layered aroma with chocolate and raisins coupling with honey and rye. Flavour is similar, lightly fruity and full of earthy, bready rye flavor. Nuances of cherry, banana bread, and walnuts appear as well. Dry and somewhat fizzy, and ultimately quite interesting and drinkable.
