UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 From WLVL. First true Roggenbier so I have nothing to compare it against. However it was tasty enough to want to try more. Opaque reddish brown. Some of the aroma and flavor of a hefeweizen but much less banana. Rye flavor and aroma. Not very carbonated. Slippery mouth feel. Serving: bottle

bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Nearly opaque dark brown color, frothy, bubbly beige head, no lace. Taste and aroma are both outside normal parameters - there is a little malt, and a lot of rye. It grows into the palate, becoming a little bitter in the finish, then sliding through a long, rye-dominated, finish. It is different, but it doesn’t work well for me.

Aroma is rye/spices, medium sweetness and basement. The flavor is rye, malts, spices and a mildly sweet/slightly funky finish.

Salmoniform (1180) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy brown hue with creamy tan head that settled. Aroma is rye, toffee, yeasty, mineral. Mouthfeel Is ok with a medium body and light carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a spicy mineral finish. Overall this is an interesting brew.

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a hint of garnet. World class head volume and retention, but almost no lacing. Light nose of molasses and burnt sugar over a slight note of spice with a hint of prune. Very light medium body with a bit of smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile is reasonably intense (but picks up as it warms), somewhat balanced but lacks the complexity of the nose. It begins with mild rye, then flows into a mild spicy bitterness. In the middle a hint of sweetness comes through as the bitterness fades. The finish is a slow fade that ends with a slightly sour burnt nut off flavor. In short, a disappointment.

EithCubes (5151) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2014
500ml bottle. Nose is sweet and malty, Munich-type with a little spice and fruit, phenols; pours deep red-brown with a rocky tan head. Taste is tart with very little bitterness, a touch grainy, sweet but not sugary, more cloy from the clove phenols. Light berry, dash of spice, body is full but also somehow watery. A confusing mix, drinkable but not terribly well done (or hasn’t survived the trip well).

Bottle. Cloudy gold color. Large head. Aroma is a tad funky, grains. Taste is grains, hay and cereal. Weel balanced.

16.9 oz bottle pours hazy brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel malts and bread. Taste is malts, bread and spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3395) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pour is a dark brown with a large tan head. Lots of floating things as well. Aroma is some caramel malt with black bread. Flavor is a decent spicy grain with some nuttiness. Finish is thin with more of the dark bread left on the tongue. Decent little beer here. Probably a good example of a taste from the old world of brewing. Now 13 ratings and none from Germany?

Pours deep, cloudy mahogany. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Dark pumpernickel and molasses aromas. Soft with sourdough and pumpernickel upfront turning to dark molasses before the medium length pit fruit finish.

12/30/2013. 500 ml. bottle. Dark brown with a tiny tan head. Almost no carbonation. Malty and some sour and metallic flavors. Far from my favorite beer.
