I like it. I don’t get the hate I’m 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. It’s smooth, balanced, and damn good.

Gold pour with little head and lace. Rye malt aroma with a light citrus aroma. Vanilla first with a light maltiness followed by some bitter. Smooth carbonation. A beer that suprised me.

Orange, almost clear, with a loose white head. Smells nice - rye toast and a little bit of funk. Flavor is rye, some caramel, some woody notes. Fairly simple, but I liked it.

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.

Bottle - Leather, feet, dark malts and rye spice. Cloudy brown with a thin whitish head. Tastes much like it smells with a bit of grass. The rye makes this pretty cool, I like this.

Mostly clear orange with a thin whit head.
Some malt, some citrus in the aroma, not much here really.
Light sweetness at the start, some bitterness in the finish.
Not very complex, but no faults either.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is yeasty and a little fruity, not strong but still inviting. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent pale golden head that leaves a little lacing. Flavor is definitely better than the aroma - not quite full-bodied, but enjoyable, malty, fruity (apple plus a little pear) and yeasty, just a tad sweet and just a tad hoppy. Smooth texture has plenty of fizz and firm body. No crisis here - just a good sippin’ brew.
