COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German, a Belgian and an American walk into a bar. This isn’t a joke, but a modern tale of Rye Ale making—rooted in a rich family legacy. Our brew resembles a German Roggeinbier, but is eccentric enough to skew Belgian with its seven unique malts. Seven! This crisp beer has been crafted with just the right mix of spicy rye, distinctive malt flavor, and hoppiness making it an all-American home run. Let your palate branch out with this winning ale

12oz bottle pours a clear copper/orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, rye, tobacco, and slightly like tomato soup. Taste of earthy bitter tobacco, followed by caramel and bitter rye spice, with some hops that doesn’t help at all. Oh my, this is a mess.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 1-11-13. Hoppy, dry, mineral-y, metallic smell features dirt, clay, honey, and molasses scents. Pours a clear brass / light amber with a very large amount of uneven, beige head. Produces good, long-lasting lacing. Dry, salty taste features chalk, bitter brown sugar (rum-like), lemon, and mineral water elements. Rye taste noticeable. Dry, mineral-y aftertaste. Medium body. Lively and numbing in the palate. Badger Hill Three Tree American Rye is inoffensive and adequately good but not particularly remarkable. 7/4/7/4/14=>3.6

Bottle pour - belgian notes abound here with this drinkable crisp brew that is slightly above average.

Pours golden amber with a nice head that lasts forever - looks amazing. Aroma is complex and very nice - peaches, pine, caramel, spices... it keeps changing. After being nearly perfect so far, the taste doesn’t quite live up. It covers a few different bases, from hops to malts, sweet to bitter, tang and rye, but nothing quite stands out. The taste does several things averagely. Palate is heavy carbonation - some foam still remaining even after the beer is gone.

bookman10 (663) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours an amber-orange with mid-sized head. Aroma is pretty run-of-the-mill, dominated by malt and grain. Flavor is quite spicy, almost pepper-like (reminds me of Furthermore’s Knotstock), with some hoppiness in reserve. Finish is rather bitter. Interesting but not my favorite.

Great brew on tap at Stanley’s. Taste is slightly bitter but nice rye flavor.

Nsanders (568) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Straw colored with a thin white head that blankets the sides of the glass. Aroma is floral hops, slight rye and pepper, but more wet hay and cereal. Flavor is mildly bitter, mostly watery. Body is light and easy drinking. Wanted more rye flavor. More of a summer beer.

Smells is slightly hoppy, belgiany, as well as rye character. Tastes spicy with a rye tasting finish. Plenty of hops and bitterness as well.

Copper brown color. Little to no aroma. Taste is sweet malt. Tiny bit of rye spice, hardly any hop bitterness. Super watery finish. Meh.
