On tap at the Brew Pub. Poured an amberish color with a smaller sized off white head. Bready, rye, grains, floral, with some spiciness.

Lukaduke (2181) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours a medium to dark golden color... Light nose a bit of spicy grass I and light citrus. Palate is round and has a grainy backbone with nice hints of rye and bitterness but not much hop flavor other than the bitterness. A bit rounder and less crisp than I would have hoped for for this style .

blankboy (6045) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
[Draught at Le Saint-Bock, Montreal] Pours a murky copper with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Resiny hoppy aroma along with light rye malt and light spices. Flavour also of resiny hops and a good amount of rye malt, nice tasting with quite a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Draft at Le Saint Bock with Brendan, PJ, Andrew, Ricky and Streets. Pours a golden orange body with thin white lacing. Aroma is spice, hop and light pine. Mouthfeel is medium with lotes of spice upfront, followed by citrus hop, rye, light soapy character and malt.

tom10101 (2758) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
On tap @ Le Saint-Bock (Montréal). Clear bright golden/amber with a small/medium white head and good lacing. Aroma is of rye/spices, herbal hops and caramel. Taste is slight sweet and about the same as the aroma with some soapy notes and light smoke. Light bitterness. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Lack of balance, so not super drinkable. If it was not of the unpleasant soapy present, it would actually be decent.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
On tap at Saint-Bock. Pours slightly hazy amber with low off-white head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of malt, fruits, flowers, manure (in a bad way). Taste is of malt, weird grain, bitterness. Intense manure/cow shed bottom hay (is that supposed to be the rye?). Palate: Light body. Overall: Tastes really bad. Don’t know if it’s just the missuse of rye, or if there is something else wrong, but something is not normal with that batch/ beer? "Drain pour".

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Un verre en direct du St-Bock. Bière ambrée orangée avec une belle mousse. Je suis surpris de la consistance de cette mousse. Le nez est simple avec du seigle, de plus en plus populaire, et la levure St-Bock. En bouche la bière est mordante, houblonnée à souhait et une finale sur le seigle satisfaisante.

SlovakSniper (3161) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Un verre. Un liquide ambré et son petit col de mousse qui laisse des traces. Un nez de biscuit caramélisé entouré de fleurs, de fruits et de résine. Un goût malté, épicé et parfumé par des houblons floraux et résineux. Une bouche correctement menée. Un corps dans la moyenne avec un pétillement normal et une texture huileuse. Une finale relevée, amère, résineuse, florale et étrangement alcoolisée. Une bière facile à boire et appréciable.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On tap at Saint Bock. Pours a clear amber with a thin to medium sized off beige head. Light hops and a bit of malt on the nose, a touch of sweet citrus and rye. Medium bodied, almost a bit smoky initially, spicy and warm with alcohol. Soft and spicy, warm rye and malt into the finish. Lingering alcohol and bitterness. Tasty and warming. Surprising that the alcohol comes through this much for a beer that’s under 7%.
