The aromas are on the light side with a mostly fruit note and a touch of pepper spice. Not much grain or bread that I could pick up, and would associate with a rye beer, but there are some faint traces mostly covered by a light caramel note. It pours a light hazy yellow with a white frothy head that doesn’t retain very well, although a wispy surface layer is left behind. The lace is runny. It’s a medium sweet and medium light bitter combination. The texture is thin and oily with a medium light body and lots of light, fizzy carbonation. It drinks smooth with a mostly sweet fruit body (citrus predominantly) along with some breadiness, light toffee, and a light pepper note at the finish. The pepper sticks around for a short time in the aftertaste to clean things up nicely.

pours hazy if not cloudy light yellow with a frothy and creamy - abnormal - white head, excellent retention and strong lacing. lean very spicy maltiness, citrus flowers, pepper, grass, slightly vinous - white wine-ish, carbonnic acid, white grape juice. lively carbonation - foamingly disturbing, light body - oily, assertive grassy-citrusy-herbal-piney-peppery finish. i’m guessing this would be pretty nice w/o infection.

Sample at the Big Tap In on 05/31/2014. Hazy copper-golden color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and roast malt. The finish is herbal hops and mildly spicy rye. Decent overall.
