3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 From a cask at Rattle’n’Hum, where it was called Righteous Rye. Tangy, yeasty aroma. Full and unusual flavor of rye, herbs, and light caramel sweetness. Righteous is bready and spicy, and has some depth to it. Another excellent brew from Sixpoint.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
I had this on tap at the craft Ale house in PA.
Aroma- Diacetyl very present, some earthy hops and some biscuit.
Appearance- Light Brown and cloudy. Little head.
Flavor- Diacetyl, some spicy flavors... from the rye, not esters. Clean fermentation. Kind of dull.
Palate- Smooth, not overly dry or carbonated.
Overall Impression- The diacetyl mixed with a heavy malt balance and very little hop flavor kind of turns me off.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad rye beer at all. It pours a dark amber color with a brownish hue and a tan head. The head leaves some lacing around the glass. The nose is full of rye, toasted bread and a touch of citrus. The body is fairly light, but drinkable. The flavors notes were of rye, bread, some floral hops, caramel and a touch of orange. The finish is fairly smooth with a more prounced hoppy and bready note.

quite a nice fruit punch and hoppy craft ale. citrus grapefruit and body helped by the rye character of the cloudy and orange hop ale. a little sweet and refreshing the brew speaks well to the rye character. quite a nice specialty ale.
