3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured orange with hints of brown. Opaque and unfiltered as a wheat should be.
Aroma is dominated by wheat with an almost meaty character to it.
The taste is sour and exceptionally dry with a dominant rye flavor. Wheat and rye command the long finish.
Wheat/rye beers aren’t usually my pint of brew but this was definitely above average.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent body and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with malty notes and the mouth feel was medium tingly with a malt hop flavor mixed with grass and corn. Average at best.

Draft at Rich O’s in New Albany, IN. White head, fair lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a yellow golden hue. Aroma was malty, hoppy and sweet. Sweet, lightly bitter, malty and hoppy flavor. Smooth, dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(draft- Indiana brewers fest) Hazy light golden beer with a nice banana and spice aroma. Excellent warmth from alcohol and pleasant sweet malts and coriander with bubblegum. Well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the Indiana Brewers Guild Brew Fest- 7/31/2004. A bit cloudy and on the light yellow side. The aroma was fairly yeasty with a citrus bitterness emerging just before my first sip. The flavor was a bit spiced or herbed and then quite yeasty.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2005 (draft) I’ve gone ahead and updated this rating as this beer has become one of my favorites. Very little head, and the beer is a little flat. But the rye and honey play together quite nicely. One of the few semi-strong beers that I can get my swill-drinking friends to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewpub. Lemon-lime spicy, very light in color which belies the huge full body. Very yeasty...herbal and pungent to finish, not perhaps as thirst-quenching as a wit might be, but interesting with the big thick body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft: Sweet, sweet nose - malt, but mostly honey. A cloudy brown with next to no head. Again the sweetness in the flavor. Okay, but not their best.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Darker amber color with a little lace and not much head. Flavor is very straight, to the point. Citrusy and a little smoky but not too complex. Good kind of bitterness. Pretty good stuff.
