rougeau13 (1940) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Dark copper with a bit off-white head. Aroma of rye and light sweet malt. The taste is semi-sweet and just slightly bitter with a solid rye flavor and spice. Body is medium but on the thicker side with somewhat fizzy carbonation. Not amazing, but enjoyable for sure.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a mostly clear amber, hazed slightly by some tiny suspended sediment in the glass, with a small off-white head that settles into a film and small ring. Aroma of rye, caramel, tea, toast, grass, a bit of pepper, and sweat. Flavor of rye, toast, caramel, very dry grains, leaves, and wood chips. Light-bodied, with a dry, spicy mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. A little disappointing based on normal Boulevard output.

Color is medium-dark amber. Aroma is a bit of rye and malt. Taste is a decent bit of hop and rye bitterness and malt. There’s not a lot of rye character here, but at the same time, the rye is also not overpowering as in some rye beers. It’s a bit underwhelming, but glad I tried it.

HonkeyBra (3235) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a rich, reddish brown with an offwhite, thick head. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, touches of bread and rye notes. Quite spicy. Flavor is caramely, lots of rye bread, earthy and some sugar. I feel like this would be better if dryer. Medium bodied, coating mouthfeel. Finishes earthy and spicy. Interesting, but drying this out would make it so much better.

shrubber85 (7288) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle. Lactic acid, cherry and rye malt aroma. Amber with moderate tan head. Sweet cherry and rye malt flavor. Lightly bitter herbal hops finish. Very nice.

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and rye with a bit of underlying earthiness. Flavor is some what dull with light grain, bread and just a hint of rye.

czar (4105) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
pours cloudy alomost dirty copper with a small off-white head, little retention. nutty and lightly fruity malts, faint though, spicy and earthy, very herbal and grassy too, almost mineral. moderate carbonation, light body - watery, almost harsh and undesirable spicy-earthy-mineral finish. meh.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle 355ml. Pours brown with low beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of manure, malt, rye. Taste is of malt, rye, slight bitterness, earth, sugar. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: This beer is not very good. I don’t dig rye anyways.

mathieuc (1141) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
Small sample from a bottle left unattended. ;) Clear brown with a small white rim that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is of faint odd hops and rye. Taste is slightly sweet, spicy and grainy/doughy. Some rough edges, it had a weird vegetal finish. Body was kind of light, carbonation too. Not sure if this bottle was in prime condition.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Hazy, dirty, dark amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy beige head and high effervescence. Aroma is slightly tangy fruit and grain, cereal, toast, floral and spicy hops and a hint of caramel. Flavor is toast, floral honey, odd sour grainy notes, a bit of caramel spicy and raw rye grain a little grass and floral hops. Light to medium body with a dry, slightly astringent feel throughout, light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Decent overall, but it doesn’t seem to really stand out on anything other than rye, it could use a distinct hop note or malty character. The more I drink the better it gets, but still, it doesn’t really interest me.
