2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of apples, flavor is very cidery and spicy, not what I'd hoped for in that the rye is kind of blunted by the sweetness... Not the best

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a bright golden color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was tartish and musty with touches of apple and chalk. The flavor was a bit tart and chalky with light notes of apple, bread, biscuit and must. Medium length finish of apple, bread and biscuit and turns a bit dry at the end. Medium body. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden color with a large head that quickly fades to nothing. Aroma of big spicy phenols, rye, bread, apples. The taste is tart apples, rye, bead, caramel and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. Interesting but a little disjointed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of bready malt, melon rind, Belgian yeast, floral hops. Flavor of sweet fruits up front with a dry, bready malt finish. Simple, easy drinking. I can’t say I get any rye notes specifically, as the name suggests. It’s good though!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Penn brew. Hazy golden color. Medium head. Aroma of clove and light fruit. Average carbonation. Light bodied. The cloves overpower the whole beer. Crazy. But still pretty good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one poured a very hazy straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma was if light spices, some lemons, apple skins, and rye. Flavor was similar, very well melded, light apple juice notes, spices, yeast, and tart grapes. Overall a bit strange but refreshing.
