3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
