The Ripstop Rye Pils is our reinterpretation of the classic pilsner lager beer: aromas of European malt and noble-type hops mingle with a dignified, refreshing, and clean malt character that is further distinguished with a generous addition of spicy rye malt, creating a beer that is at once malty, zesty, crisp, hoppy, and incredibly drinkable.

Tap at the brewery. Hazy yellow pour with a smaller white head. Sweet grain with some assertive hop bite. Still get some metal. Hmmmm.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2015
22oz alu bottles packaged 04/2015, Geers, served at What’s Brewing 202-1 - blind tasting vs Elzacher Löwen Pils. - Thick, burgeoning pillows of dense foam on a golden straw body. Round and fruity (apricot) rye spice meets the young fresh treesap of Pacific NW aroma, going on spruce after rain, furniture, EU nettle and damp grass - close, but a bit of a giveaway. More confident wet bark and damp pine in taste, creating a near-vegetal cocktail of fresh white pollen proteins: nettle tea, unripe avocado, white apricot peel develop good punching power on this 5,8% pilsner/APA body. Held up well in its futuristic active lifestyle can. Nice beer, if only a tad less sessonable that its supremely balanced DE forebears.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden colour with a mid-sized white head. Aroma of medium dried fruits, mild hoppy, pale malt, some grain. Taste is very hoppy, grainy, dried fruits, apricots, pale malt, ok!

It’s good, but not great. The rye gives it a bit of fruitiness that doesn’t help the style. Faulty premise, I think.

Pours a clear blond beer with a medium white head. Smells malty with a slight hoppy taste and palate l. Cool refreshing beer but nothing exceptional.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap @ Base Camp. Slightly hazed golden pour with white foam. Nice biscuit and bready malts. Somewhat spicy and leafy in terms of the hop profile. Pretty floral and aromatic. There’s a mild bitterness on the back end. Surprising citrus notes towards the finish, too. Good malt flavor and body on this. Easy drinking.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2015
Huge, dense, very regularly formed, just yellowish head, stable, leaving some lace over fully veiled yellow beer. Hint at other grains, faintly spicy-yeasty, hay. Bitter-spicy flavour, yeast, all in check and balanced. Rootspices, dry EU-hops. Longlasting bitterness, old bread in the finish. Very dry; medium bodied, outspoken wheat-like slickness. Far from bad. Not my favourite type of beer, but agreable all the same.
