3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Hazy amber color with a decent off white head.
Herbal aroma, with fruity notes (dried apricots), honey and light caramel.
Malty flavors, some tart fruits, lo-med bitterness, faint alcoholic notes and light spiciness.
Medium bodied, lively, raw and quite interesting - but only for the first few sips.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very aromatic: fruity, cloves, and banana. Pours a clear orange with very stable head. Malt body is sweet but tapers off to feature a typical Belgian yeast profile.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, light to moderate herbs and soap for the hops and yeast, with apple, wood, pepper and hints of a fruity liqueur. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, off-white with excellent crust lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy medium amber/orange. Flavor is moderately acidic to start, then finishes faintly sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively to fizzy carbonation ad a dry. Although a little simple in the flavor up front, this Rye Beer is excellent.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Saison aspect in the nose with some dust. Slightly hazy amber body. Thin tan head. Dry palate with a lovely saison-like finish. Remarkably full bodied for a 5.8% ABV beer, defying the laws of beer logic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. The aroma is strong Belgian yeast, with typical banana and spice notes. The flavor is a harmonious blend of rye spice, yeast, fruit, white pepper and coriander. Has a nice smooth wheat and oat palate, with a crisp and tangy wheaty finish. A lot going on here.
