Nose of floral earthy hops, spicy rye notes, pepper, and some bubble gum. Reddish amber pour, frothy foamy head, sticky lace. A nice looking beer. Spicy rye, bittering hops, floral and light citrus notes. A hint dusty. Nice rye malt usage. Not overly belgian, just with a hint of sweetness from the yeast. Nice dry hoppy notes.

On tap at Apex, pours a cloudy reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of rye malts, roasted rye bread, dry fruity caramel malt and some dishwashing detergent. Flavour is very dry, full of crusty bread rye bread, dry fruity malt and a bit of candied sugar. Overall, a very dry palate full of crusty bread and rye. Good stuff.

Is this really retired? ’Cause I had it on tap last night. It was tasty. Smells like tobacco, coffee, rye, and yeast. Flavor is tobacco, rye toast, and some yeast. Off beat, but tasty.

Well, they either did this one again, or it has been held on to for a few years and then put out again, since I just picked up a growler from Whole Foods. Pours a medium amber, a bit reddish, slight head. Aroma is peppery. Flavor is an interesting mix of peppery notes, with the pepper from the rye mingling with a peppery, earthy hop bitterness, and then finishing with strong black pepper phenols from the Belgian yeast. Lasting, aspirin like bitterness. Maybe they were hoping the phenols would fall back with some aging. Instead, apparently the fruit and citric notes fell out, but everything else stayed strong. Too bad, an interesting concept worthy of some experimentation.
