Roggenbiers (Rye Beers) were declared illegal in 1516 by the Germanic Lords after a series of poor harvests. The Bavarian Purity Law outlawed the use of RYE for brewing beer so that it could be reserved for making bread. It has been 500 years since the passing of the Reinheitsgebot and we have resurrected this lost style to create a very refreshing, sessionable and smooth ale.

My first Roggenbier, it pours a cloudy amber red, particles floating about and crowned by a fizzy off-white head. Light peppery spiciness, caramel, brown bread and sourdough comprise the aromatics while a sip reveals a flavour that is close but more of dark plums, fruitcake and baking spices. It has a nice bittersweetness that is driven hard by a fervent carbonation.

Pint on tap a Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a cloudy brown color with a finger of off-white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and bready grains with some hints of dark fruits and herbs. Taste is a light citrus and herbal hop bitterness with a grainy caramel malt sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I found that there was something not quite right about this brew, perhaps a bit sour. Not recommended.

An unfiltered, murky, muddy brown body. White foamy head that quickly disappears. Aromas of rye, biscuits, salted caramel. Tastes are in the red fruit realm, with definite grape skins in the mix. Some plum. A hint of apple. Overall, I find this one to be very flavourful, for a 5.2% abv beer. This is sessionable, but drinks like a bigger beer. I’d buy this again.

Hazy Gold/Amber-Tinted body with a fizzy white head which dissipated quickly. Agressive yeast profile. Baking spices on the nose- clove, nutmeg, some banana, reminiscent of a weiss, but darker and with a more bitter and abrupt finish. High carbonation, dry, bready hay/wheat flavour, quite earthy.

HippyHop (370) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
There’s something weird about this stuff... Pour is cloudy caramel with a finger of short-lasting off-white head. Nose is lots of pungent, musty bread dough and a bit of spice. Taste follows, with a weird, almost sour element. It’s surprisingly carbonated, and lacking a little bit of sweetness for my liking. Not really my thang.

Canmoore (308) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy deep amber, with a billowy off white head. Aroma includes notes of rye, dusty, pepper, and yeast. Tasting notes includes a light whiskey presence, and some dates, peppery yeast, and medium roasted malts. Decent Rye beer, but not a knockout as far as RPA’s go.

DuffMan (7467) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle, shared with Robbie while painting the fence. Deep copper orange, off white head. Husky, doughy, slightly chewy rye body. Oddly heavier than I expected.
