COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gramarye is the practice of learning magic. For thousands of years, people have used a grimoire (book of magic) to cast spells and summon spirits. Of course, magic fell out of favor over the centuries, the same as brewing with rye. Interest in magic seems to be on the upswing these days, and so is the interest in brewing with rye. A coincidence? This is our take on session pale ale made with a dose of rye malt to give it that luscious feel and snappy finish. We think it is magical.

JorisPPattyn (9250) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2016
Dwindling orangeish head over orange-copper beer, coldhazed. Orangemarmalade-like aroma, bit of caramel, orangesyrup, sweetish nose. Piney flavour, dry needles, rye; slight sweet impression; fine dry herbs. Medium bodied (!), quite slick. Long-lasting bitterness, dry. Bit lame in the end. Balanced, but...

the brew is very clear orange/amber... decent white head... 1/2" head.. spotty lacing. Nose is very promising.. toasty malt... rye is there ... a bit of a dry "spicy" note... very dry brew with a bunch of malty background essence.. no real "caramel"... very malt centric with just enough citrus to balance. Flavor mirrors the nose with some dry toasty elements.. citrus hops... the rye is present and helps to add some structure to the maltiness... rye malt is above present and the citric hops finish forever.... with warmth, a bit of perfumy floral hoppiness... Surprised this one has a great finish for such a low ABV.. very VERY drinkable.. Loving it.
