A traditional German rye-based style ale. The little-known style originated in the same region as Hefeweizen and is brewed with the same yeast strain. Brewed with 40% rye, this intriguing beer contains clove, banana, and rye flavors.

Had at HBF. Pours brown. Aroma of wheat, malt, yeast. Tastes kind of dry, with a malty, wheaty, slight rye, citrus finish.

HBF. I havent had many Rye ales but this one was excellent. It fits all the style guidelines of a hefe or perhaps a dunkelweizen due to its darker color. Nice sweetness balanced by classic banana aromas from the german yeast. Honestly- if they said they used 40% wheat instead of rye I wouldnt be able to to the difference. When drinking this- assume it to be a hefe. It is very good and refreshing.

Sampled draft at the Harrisburg Brewer’s Fest. Good drinkable beer. Tasted more like a helles to me then a hefe. Didn’t have any clove or fruit flavor.

Great wheat beer aroma, heavy on the rye with banana, clove, bubblegum - smooth and sweet. Dark amber cloudy beer with off-white lacing head. Medium body - a bit chewy - and smooth carbonation. Taste starts a bit acidic but predominantly sweet with no bitterness. Flavors of grain/malt, rye, banana, clove, spice. Finish is acidic, sweet with no bitterness with after of cloves and just a little bitterness.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Not quite sure if this is really a German Hefeweizen, but it really tasted like one. Please feel free to correct me. Poured a dark orange color with not much of a head. Good wheat aroma with a slightly sweet twinge. Initial taste was a strong wheat and grain one with that slight mixture of sweetness following it up, mostly a banana taste.
