COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Single hop rye ale with coriander

Our Spring seasonal, brewed with 45% Roggenmalz (German Rye), coriander and Ultra hops from the Willamette Valley. Slight nuttiness from the rye is balanced with undertones of fresh spice, berries, nuts and tropical fruits flavors created by the heavy additions of Ultra hops and coriander.

Bottle from West Coast Liquor, Burnaby
Hazy blond color. Aroma of cereals, malt, bread; very nice and summery. Smooth, carbonated mouthfeel; the flavor is a bit grainy, some paper; strong bitterness with not enough hop quality.
Decent.

Hazy light tan, the aroma is peachy with a touch of rye with some fruity character. Really nice balance, fruity, sweet malt, great character. Delicious brew - I don’t know if I’ve had Ultra hops before but they are really working here.

Bottle - Skunky hops and rye grains. Clear gold with a thin white head. Nice hop bitterness up front and some rye. Nice and simple, very sessionable.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is pretty light to me, though the coriander in this one really comes through. Taste has a bit of the coriander, but is pleasantly dominated by the spicy bite of the rye, which makes for a nice drink for me.

Bottle:   Somewhat sweet and grainy, a bit earthy too.   Fairly smooth, nice balance, but its a bit too grainy for me.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean beer overall, but the earthy aspect doesn’t do it any favors.   Nice soft Rye, could stand to be a bit stronger.   No sign of Coriander either.

Pours a huge frothy white head atop a clouded deep golden body. Nose is filled with DMS; very buttery and corn. Gross.

nealblind (682) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 21, 2014
from grocery outlet bottle. Slight cloudy orange pour. Aroma of rye, yeast, sulfur, toasted wheat bread. Tastes the same finishes a bit sour. A little too thick on the palate. Corriander also gets lost. Pretty good though.

ACHops (650) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2014
22 oz bomber from Burnside. Pours clear orangish copper with thick fluffy white head. Aroma is thin caramel malt and big herbal earthy spicy rye notes. Taste is light, faintly sweet pale malt with crisp, peppery rye on the back. Finishes clean and quite dry. Rye flavor is present but not cloying or dominant. Nice seasonal in that regard.
