2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the summer mixpack.. hazed golden.. short lasting white head with little lacing.
The nose is sage heavy, I thought at first it was cardamom.. peppery and light sweet citrus zest..
Despite all the weird spices and herbs, I think this is pretty tasty..
Light body and medium carbonation make for a burpy brew, but it is still tasty... would work well with authentic Thai.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of coriander and orange citrus. Taste is lightly bitter. The rye spice really comes out along with the coriander and orange citrus. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively, mouth-filling carbonation and a very long rye-spice finish. Overall, really good. Not what i was expecting but i would absolutely buy a 6er of this.

12oz bottle. Rating #66. Hazy gold/yellow pour with a white head. Spicy coriander aroma, a little earthy. Bitter orange peel flavor and a spicy rye thing going on. Interesting. (2719)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle poured a cloudy yellow color with aromas of sage, corriander, light rye and some earth. Flavors are light wheat with some sage and corriander, decent beer overall, but not the best of their lineup.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Got with the seasonal 12-pack at Krogers on Broadway in Knoxville, TN.
Cloudy yellow. Fast, small white head. Aroma: Sage, citris, coriander. Flavor: Sage dominates other spices, bread. Sage finish.
It’s not a bad beer by any means but I think Mr. Koch got a tad happy with the sage and forgot the Rye.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice banana notes, yeast, maybe a little bit of orange. Appearance is a cloudy orangish golden with a thick white head that diminishes slowly. Taste is rather suble a can taste to rye in there with an overtone of the witbeir, banana, light orange, and clove. Palate is medium carbonation and an aftertaste of lingering rye notes. Overall, Decent stuff easy drinking. Nothing that will blow your socks off. Cheers!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A white head and a light off-amber beer. The beer has a medium body and that distinctive hot rye flavoring, but it is well balanced and clean. The aftertaste is crisp and sharp. A decent beer.

Pours hazy yellow-gold with a tall, dense, off-white head.

Nicely different and tasty.
