Tap at Haud Staudt. Pours dark black, thin head. Rye aroma, rye taste, a bit odd.

22oz bottle. The pour was a cloudy amber orange with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that slowly receded, down to a thin film with a small collar and possessed very good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of apple, pears, rye, a mild peppery spice and a slight tartness. The taste was lightly sweet with a mild tartness and a nice fruity presence from the start, and then became rather yeasty with a mild taste of rye and a slightly spicy ending. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, with a lightly tart spicy taste left hanging on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit past light in body and watery in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall this is a brew with a very interesting taste. Not exactly sure what to think of it, but I do know it is rather tasty and really grows on you the more you drink...

Poured from the bottle. Pours cloudy with sediment. Nice creamy head, no lacing. Aroma is of rye malt. Flavor is similar but not as smooth as other ryes. Palate is full bodied with a oily thick finish. Overall pretty decent rye.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2012 Pale gold with a white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is orange peel and the slightest hint of sourdough. The taste has some rye and yeasty qualities as well as a bit hit of orange, and an appreciable amount of bitterness to finish. I think the rye/grain flavour and aroma could be played up quite a bit more while still making this drink like a saison.

I guess I like this a bit more than most on here. Great looking beer. Clear orange with a white head that looks like foamed milk on a cappuccino. The aroma is lacking a bit of belgian character for the style, maybe a touch of pineapple. Flavor is fairly light with a bit of malty sweetness balanced by a touch of black pepper. Pretty dry finish with a touch of sweetness.

Clear amber, some visible carbonation, off-white finger of rocky foam with low retention. Moderate lacing.Sweet malts, slightly metallic hop notes. Bit of alcohol and yeast. Bready malts up front, backed by a drying, bitter hops aftertaste. Moderate carbonation, light-to-medium body. Saison, kind of. Ale, sure. Rye? Maybe. Falls short on all three, though.

pours orange with a small white fizz. Has a grassy earthy aroma and the flavor is close to the same.

I like it. I donít get the hate Iím seeing for it. Aroma is a bit muted, but the proper Rye, sweet wheat, and citrus notes are there. The taste is extremely smooth. Sweet rye, biscuity malt, citrus... classic farmhouse notes. FInish is slightly bitter, but mostly just sweet rye and citrus. This beer hides the ABV really well too. Itís smooth, balanced, and damn good.

Tasted at Total Wine tasting. Least favorite of four. It was too citrusy and a hint of pine but not something I can drink a lot of.

This is the new version of the Ryedentity Crisis. The brewer told me they decided to not make it black anymore. Amazing Rye Saison. Unfiltered, farmhouse aroma and paired very well with my food.
