COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roggenbier (German for "rye beer") is a style not commonly found in the U.S. Real Ale Roggenbier is golden in color and similar in flavor to a hefeweizen. Traditional German hefeweizen yeast produces notes of banana, clove, and bubblegum. Forty percent malted rye gives this beer a hint of bitterness and a crisp, dry finish. Try it with a pastrami sandwich. ABV: 4.9%, IBU: 10, OG(plato): 12.7

On tap.
Very light gold pour with a short lived tiny head. Smell is spiced like a hefeweizen with cloves and same notes. Nice if you like hefs, but I find that scent strongly offensive. Was hoping this was more rye than hefeweizen, but it basically came across like a german hefeweizen with a faint hint of rye spiciness in the taste perhaps. Decent beer I guess, but not for me.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Draft, at FW Saucer O-fest. Dirty straw color, cloudy with a white head. Pungent aroma of cloves, grass, a slight smoky meat quality, and the rye malt is rather tangy on the nose. More tangy bread flavor, a strong hefeweizen-like funk, cloves. Light to medium bodied, with a dry and yeasty finish. I imagine the rye helped make this a more pungent hefe than usual, and I really enjoyed it. I’d love to try it wtih a pastrami sandwich.

Tap at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer Octoberfest. Slightly cloudy pale straw colored pour with very little head. Nose is dominated by the rye, no surprise. Light palate with litlle carbonation. Somewhat tart flavor, but the rye dominates, finishes very dry. Overall a nice beer.

Nice. Very nicely crafted. Didn’t detect the exact similarity to a hefeweizen, but perhaps that was because I was just too busy enjoying this and replaying all hat I liked every sip. I enjoy the similarities and differences in this and Lost Gold. Mostly they are near polar opposites, and yet even after just one pint (of the roggenbier) they are two local faves. While I shouldn’t rate beers near drunk on the same night I drank them, what better fits my devotion to another wesome local beer. here here (I blame not going to GABF)

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 Really loved this beer. Poured a clear gold into the glass with a small white head and minimal haze. The aroma was really full of yeast and clove. The taste was nice and sharp with the rye cutting right through the beer. Unbelievably smooth.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy yellow body with an average white head. Aroma of banana, clove, rye, freshly ground corn grain, and bubble gum. Flavor of banana, clove, rye, and light lemon.

On Draught. The beer pours a clear yellow gold hue with a nice fluffy white head and good sticky lacing. The aroma gives off big notes of banana and clove with hints of citrus and malt. The flavor has the banana and clove with a malt sweetness that is balanced by crisp clean rye flavor in the finish. This is a highly drinkable and very refreshing beer that makes you want more and more. Very well made. Good job Tim and Crew!

A taster at the Fall Beer tasting at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Goldish color with not too much head. Very cloudy. Citrus notes with wheat in the taste with a kick of rye in the flavor and aroma. The wheat and rye flavors compliment and oppose each other at the same time. Not my favorite but it was worth trying once.
