Big-bubbled tan head atop a murky amber body. Aroma is rye, herbal, and light peach. Taste is about the same, plus lemon (though not especially tart). Light/medium body. Very tasty.

A spicy caramel metabolism meshes into vibrating oranges and their acidity...Scotch ale leanings in the splendid aroma...Muddy malt and floating yeast placidly rising amongst the fat bubbles...A double-take will not even give you half of the information you need about this truly unique creature...

had a bottle of this at blind tiger. it´s always a bit of a risk getting beer that is on special and this seemed pretty old. very hazy light brown. apricot nectar aroma and texture. quite sweet, light taste of rye and, perhaps by association, of carraway. i´ll have to have a fresh bottle some time

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Head is initially huge, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is heavily malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, clove, and honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Another beautiful Bürgerbräu creation...their answer to weissbier; bigger, toastier, richer. A real treat, pity this one doesn't make it to Colorado (other than at Falling Rock once, thanks to Chris Black being a fan of this brewery!).

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2007 Re-rate 1/11/03: Doesn’t have nearly the same carbonated pour as the first rating, but I did pour it a little colder. Mostly the same as the previous rating. Nice sweetness and rye flavor throughout. Crisp, clean and enjoyable.

Original rating 7/2/03: Pours with a ton of carbonation, about 90%, which subsides into a hazy orange. Light citrus aroma leads into a full palate with a smooth, good rye sweetness. A very mellow and drinkable brew. A true roggenbier, very unique. I was glad to try this one.

Labels itself as a Rye beer, first real try of one other than Sunrye, which is suspect. Light orange appearance, long lasting, thin white head. fruity, banana-like aroma with some esther notes. Yeast and fruit is prominent. Has a bit of a starchy palate which is the one flaw I find. Otherwise, an interesting little ale.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Based on many revisits of this gem of a beer. Pours amber with some protein globules and a diminishing white head. Smells of lemons, wheat, oranges, lots of tangy qualities, some underlying tarte like hints found in many Jolly Pumpkin beers. Tastes of creamy sweet malt, lots of tangy hints, lemons, some underlying sourness, some wild qualities (accidental?). The palate on this reminds me of a melted milk shake. It is extremely velvety and enjoyable. The finish on this is a nice balance of tarte and full bodied grain. One of the best German beers I have tasted and easily one of my top 20.

This is a muddy-chunky brown beer. Super sweet aroma and a nasty sweet aroma and flavor, like spoiled vegetables. My bottled exploded, so I wonder if it was contaminated. This is only for the strong willed heavy beer drinkers, to be sure.
