I love the use of rye in beers. Good example here, quite sticky and a little too much sourness and sweetness, but it’s pretty good. Problematic in that it doesn’t really drink like an 8 percenter.

30cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear brown colour with a red hue, off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, sweet, rye, metal, light spicy. Flavour is sweet, metallic, light malty, rye, light fruity, bit of chocolate, light spices. Light bodied. Too metallic, and definitely overcarbonated.
