COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. OG 14.5 Plato / IBUs 30 ABV 6.0% / January - May Release

50cl bottle pours a clear amber with some cloudy, eggshell head. Aroma is nice, grainy, malt, some yeast, a little brie rind, light herbal tea. Flavor is excellent, malty, lightly toasty, light cracker, a little cheese, rye, nutty, pencil shavings. Dry, toasty, slightly creamy finish. Really solid.

Very simple doughy biscuity lager here. Strange to do a lager like this. It cleans up a lot of what makes the style unique and tasty. A bit lacking in depth of flavor but oddly refreshing all at the same time. I dont really love it but I find it charming.

tap at brewery. notes of herbal, doughy breads, just a hint of rye. not really diggin the candied sugar addition. touch of cooked vegetable rustic dough malt character reminds me of jack’s abby wet hop lager. okay.
