adnielsen (9081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during 7/5/2014 Seattle beer tour. Pours a bit hazy, deep rust orange appearance with a thin tan head. Aroma is very spicy with lots of nutmeg and clove and pears. Spicy rye, caramel, black bread flavor. Very spicy. Heavy phenols and esters. Not my favorite.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Produced a clear amber color with a thin white foam head. Aroma is banana and taste is spectacular with the hefeweizen yeast! Immediate favorite. Just thankful I live in Seattle where I can get it frequently!

Draught at the brewery
Hazy dark amber color with creamy head. It has some character of Dunkelweizen, but itís a bit too yeasty, mainly the aroma. The rye has some value, there is some banana and clove, but in the end itís an ordinary beer.

Draft at the brewery. Love this style. Banana aroma with some sweet malt. Banana and clove flavors definitely present. Really nutty too. Drinks easy with a semi -sweet bread. Love this beer.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle... Clear amber pour with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is equal parts rye, hefeweizen yeast - and its associated esters and phenols - and caramel malt. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Nicely balanced notes of medium-roast malts, hefeweizen yeast spiciness, and gritty rye. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and mildly phenolic. Kudos to 50belair for sharing his bottle of this interesting beer!

Interesting brew. Deep amber in color. Easy to drink. Sweet malt flavors of toast, light caramel and nuts. Banana esters gave it a nice dimension. Tasty stuff.

Nocturne (786) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
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.

kramer (4945) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2013
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.
