This is a so-so holiday red, some spice and some sour. Caramel, fruit and coriander.

Yay party beer - 12oz bottle into transparent contempt. Nose is slightly spicy malt grain as generic as that sounds. Sips adds wheat and a muddled mess. Autumnal to says the least. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a clear copper color with a small beige head. Very little lacing. Nose is somehow like gym socks that needed be washed two weeks ago. Medium in body.
Flavor is must better than the aroma I get fruit, chocolate, and some spice. Coriander I think. But while there are lots of flavors they are kings of a mishmash. Overall a dismal failure.

bottle - Pours red-orange and clear with a small, lingering, off-white head. It smells of caramel malt and berries. This light bodied brew is sweet with a spicy character that’s a bit interesting. Pretty good.

Nice and not so rye alike. fine pouring in glass and a little bit thin. Enjoyable and fine to drink.

Redish color. Aroma is malty, little fruity and slight pepper. Taste is smooth, caramel with a slight tart finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
Pours dark red-amber; clear with a fairly durable head.
Aroma is neutral rather than appealing, but then I am not a fan of most farmhouse ales.
Taste: an appealing fruity flavor with a sweet/tart balance leaning towards the tart side. Hints of strawberries. Tame and mild for style.
Medium body and medium-high carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mild currant nose and even milder spice. Clear copper, medium yellowish head. Vinous currant flavor. Nicely balanced. Fizzy and medium body. Pleasantly surprising, not mind boggling, but good. I misread the label and was expecting some sort of bad strawberry beer.

Reddish orange, completely clear. Nice white head. Smells like toast and a little bit of blueberry. Sweet, and some fruity flavors. Maybe some citrus? Did not get any hibiscus, white pepper, or coriander.

Bottle - big foamy head, clear medium amber color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, with mild peppery spice, mild floral notes, mild hops - not bad but nothing special

This is a nice ale, with an easy taste. An underhopped beer, it has a pleasant malt taste. It is slightly tart but the overall impression is a simple and easy thirst quencher.
