Similar to the traditional wheat beers of Bavaria but with the addition of rye in the grist (which also makes it a bitch to mix in the mash tun). The rye lends a nutty, spicy flavor. As different from it's wheat counterpart as wheat bread from rye bread. That being said, if you like our normal hefe you'll enjoy the ryezen as well.

(07.06.06) On tap at Mickey Finns, Libertyville, IL. 5.5% ABV. Sulfury spicy nose. Poured hazy amber with small white head. No discernable carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied hefe that starts dry with light malt sweetness and spicy/banana/licorice flavors. Finished dry with light hop bitterness. A decent drinkable interesting beer but the sulfur aroma was somewhat repulsive.
