3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Deep amber/brown with good size head that leaves behind some lacing. Aroma: rye! Plus light toasted and light floral notes. Taste has plenty of peppery, gingery rye spice. It does taste like a rye hefeweizen just like the label says, but with less of a yeast-dominance. Pretty good stuff.

Tap. Pours a crystal clear reddish amber body with a small wispy white head, The nose is really nice, lots of earthy rye bread and minimal hops, letting the rye shine. The flavor is a bit thin, but lots of earthy rye and rye bread notes. There are some moderately bitter hops in here, but they are second fiddle to the rye. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some fizzy carbonation and slightly clingy maltiness. Pretty damn nice Roggenbier.

Bottled on my wifeís birthday. Consumed 26OCT13
Pours amber with a thin sheet of white foam. Smells like buttered popcorn, toasted rye chips. Flavor isnít much either, grain, some toast, some more butter, some astringency. Medium on thin with a moderately sparky carb and a dry finish. Overall really donít feel this beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Dark reddish brown in appearance with a half-inch of tan foam and bubbles. Mostly fruity esters, clove and toasted grains in the aroma. Taste is a straightforward blend of clove, banana and rye spice notes. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a slightly sour, spiced grain finish. Rye Hefeweizen sounds about right. Well done.

My first beer of this style, so I'm reviewing with a clean slate. Nice bready, almost nutty but not quite, flavor. Some tangy ness and spiciness too. Actually quite good, but would prefer to see an imperial version with more oomph. B+

Hazy bronish red pour with a fizzy off white head that dissipates then holds. Smells different than the roggenbiers I had in Germany. It has a ton of herbal, grassy hops in the aroma that along with the yeast dominate. The yeast has a bti of funk in the nose. Flavor is close to what I remember. Thinner body, not as fruity, but again this is just an interpretation of it. Very nice rich breadiness, not as sweet as other examples but rather much more bitter. I like it.
