4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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!

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+

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.

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose and creamy tan head. Beautiful nose of toasty rye, banana, and clove. Like a rye hefeweizen. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Cool combination of grain and yeast that no one else is doing.

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.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a fleeting white head. Malty aromas. Tangy malt and rye notes with a hint of clove. Good body and mouthfeel.

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.
