Brewed in the French farmhouse style as a warm fermented lager. The grist contains 30% Rye Malt local sourced and malted in MA as well as Belgian candy sugar. We leave this beer slightly hazy to accentuate the mild fruity yeasty character. Copper in color, a spicy Rye flavor emerges in a dry yet malty finish.

Growler. Pours golden amber, slight white head, light to medium body. Rye taste is there but not very strong, light hop taste. Esay drinking beer.

500ml bottle, thanks to Mike L. Bottled spring 2013. Mildly hazy amber orange color. Thin off-white head. Some loose bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, lightly soft. Lightly dry texture. Nice lightly spicy, lightly toasty rye malt character. Moderate sweet taste, very lightly spicy. Nice biere de garde. Good complex flavor.

Bottle. Clear copper pour with smallish white head. Peppery rye aroma, wet, grain, a bit dirty, quite a bit of yeast. Caramel flavor, lots of black pepper, rye, bready, toasty. Chewy palate, a bit undercarbed with a semi-sweet finish.

.5L bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent orange with white lacing. Smells doughy and spicy. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. A nice take on the style.

.5 liter bottle. Pours a cloudy light amber with just a film of a white head. Slightly fruity aroma. Sweet but not too sweet. The rye is hidden though it’s there if you are looking for it. Not one of my favorites from Jack but not bad.

Received as part of a box from Allen, thanks for the tick Allen! Pours a dark orange/amber in color with a fingers worth of off-white head that has remarkable head retention. Some pretty significant lacing as I drink my glass. Nose is comprised of pilsner malt and zesty rye with some candied sugar. Taste is dry and spicy with some underlying sweetness that ends up lingering on the finish. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is lively but on the softer side, light sweetness, dry, and a moderate finish. Pretty nice, balanced beer. I think I prefer their brett’d beer de garde, but this was nice as well. It grows on me the more I drink it.

Bottle. Pours medium hazy amber with a film of off white head. Nose is light nutty, toasty, and caramel malts with some spicy yeasty notes and malt sweetness. flavor is spicy malts and yeasty stuff. Malty sweet with a very toasted quality. Slightly muddy malt sweet flavor. Medium bitterness. medium sweet finish. This one had muddled malt flavors and didn’t let me pick out the flavors that well. Almost reminded me of homebrew. Sorry just didn’t do it for me.

Bottle from trevdawg...thanks Evan! - Hazy amber pour with a filmy off-white head. Nose is real grainy, with spicy rye and a real husky characteristic. Light herbal hopping and a subtle sugary sweet note. Taste is more of the same, with a nutty, spicy malt base. The rye really snaps on the finish, and you can taste the sweetness of the candi sugar as well. Not much hopping, with a dusty yeastiness throughout. Fluffy body that bites a little bit. Not something I would have thought I’d like, but this was quite pleasant.
