Absolutely was a mistake to take this one off the market. Redhook stopped producing this beer when brewery bought by major company. Rye beer not for all beer drinkers. Unfiltered, with nice crisp taste. I have been able to closely replicate brewing my own though, so I won’t go without!!

My favorite of the red hook line. Nice balance of hops. I wish they still made this.

A very nice full-flavored rye. I like the thought that you might be drinking a beer in one of it’s most primitive forms and that is what this tasted like.

I really miss this beer, as it was considerably better than most wheat beers. It had a pleasant flavor that didn’t disappear right away.

Wow! I had no idea what to expect, but was very pleased. Poured with a fluffy white head that disappeared quickly and very little lacing. Hint of rye came through the aroma. A wheat type flavor with a touch of citrus/spice. I liked this one more than I expected to.

This is a golden beer that's highly sedimented with tiny still particles clouding the whole glass. There's little to no head. The aroma is grainy. The flavor is citricly acidic and vaguely sweet with an underlying crisp malt flavor. This is actually a very good light cooler of a beer.

This has barely any rye in it and so is quite different from the German ’roggen’ beer style. Yet, the small amount of rye seems to give this beverage a light, wheat taste, similar to a witbier. I find this one of the best summer quenchers rivaled by maybe some of the hoppier IPAs. A wonderful summer brew.

I guess i tried this at the right time. This beer goes great while BBQing for a crowd. Light and crisp with a quality hoppiness to it. Light golden in color, small head. Finishes clean with some citrus flavors. Great to whack after biting into a burger or steak sandwich.
