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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly cloudy yellow orange pour with small off white head. Aroma of rye malt, belgian yeast, spices and lemon citrus. Taste of rye malts, yeast, slightly spicy, lemon citrus, slightly dry finish. Perfect carbonation, perfect mouthfeel, incredibly easy to drink, ABV well hidden. Lots going on in this beer but everthing comes together perfect with no one thing overpowering the others. I loved this beer, cant believe its not getting higher ratings. Perfect beer for spicy foods.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Nice looking beer in appearance rivals Belgium farmhouse ales. Not to fragrant, but packs a mouthful of wonderful taste, and packs a punch with it's 8% abv. Nice clean neutral rye taste, a nice respite from my usual ipa fare. Highly recommend.
