Thanks Shawn for picking this up for me in Montpelier. Poured into a Duvel Tulip at Fridge TEMP!
A - Half-finger head crystal clear with big and small bubbles. SRM 4 on the scale. Dark gold to light brown in color. Head dissipated fast with no lacing.
S - Very light Rye, lots of very earthy malts and minimal bready yeast. It has a golden wheat sort of scent like a german wheat beer.
T - Hard to really late. Solid rye which I’m not a fan of in beers. I’m not a rye guy so this is a subjective taste test. Very earthy, very drinkable, Taste is rye and roasted malts.
M - No carbonation, light bodied, dry finish
O - It’s alright. Solid B on my scale but I’m not a rye lover. wouldn’t buy again.

Pours a hazy amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has a musty earthy maltiness...rye is notable but its a bit stinky too. Flavor is malty with a touch of caramel...rye stands out...mild bitterness...earthy. mouthfeel is medium and lively with a malty/earthy finish that bitters some.

bottle courtesy of reynolds314, thank you! this is a really well done and unique pale ale, i really enjoyed it and wish i could get it regularly. delicious. the body is very very full for a pale ale or 6% beer in general. the rye and hops play very well in the mouth, the aftertaste is terrific and you keep wanting another sip. nice hoppy start to a great hearty cereal malt finish. good stuff for sure.

Un bon bouquet d’houblons fruités accompagne le seigle. La présence en bouche est un peu ralenti par un passage à vide trop liquide. L’amertume est bien calibré avec la douce présence caramel. Buvabilité moyenne.

Bottle shared by Tom. Pours a clear reddish amber with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of light pine hops and grapefruit with a hint of backing rye. Flavor has a real nice hop profile with grapefruit and pine with a backing grassy and light grain notes.

I loved this pale ale. Really unique hop bill accented greatly by the rye. I ordered the farmhouse rye at the anniversary party and was given this by mistake and well im glad it happened. Hops are flavorful but not too intense with resiny citrus and grassy notes. The spicyness of the rye are the star. Great!
