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.

not too spicy a bit soapy. A touch spicy. Not so well balanced. Hops and rye don’t complement, they clash.

Tap at Hamilton’s. Clear medium auburn with a small off - white head, down to a film within a few mins. Lots of fruity belgian yeast and banana in the nose, though not too sweet, just a little rye and toasted malt behind. Flavor is a little toastier, still plenty yeasty, clean ripe banana. Never sweet, dry finish, little rye. Bitterness at a 3. Soft light to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Quite tasty. Good job at a Belgian style.

Pours with an amber body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet yet bitter with notes of malt, spice, cloves and a light hoppiness. Medium to full bodied, smooth and a little warming.

"The Belgian yeast kinda overrides the rye here, which is why I chose belgian ale and not rye beer. Either way...a little confused, with muddled aroma and flavors. They were nice, just unfocused to the point where it was hard to say what you were drinking. I wonder if this was fresh..."
