Draft at Rattle N Hum. Pours amber and clear, fluffy head. Nose is fruity, cherries, spicy rye notes (albeit mild). Taste has distant notes of rye, more of the fresh cherries and citric hops. Finishes pretty dry slight rye spiciness. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma with some spicy flourishes. The flavor has rye and sweet malts. Not quite enough hops, but the hops that are there add a nice floral quality to add to the rye. Enjoyable.

Murky brown in color with nice carbonation. Clean tasting, similar to a wheat beer without the citrus.

tap at RnH: I can’t tell if this is a dark amber or a light brown. In any case, I thought this was a very well balanced brew. Nice herby, bready arouma. Smooth drinking with a dry finish. The bitterness level is perfect.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
RnH: tap: "RIghteous Rye": The pours shows a deep amber, leaving a medium white head. The nose reminds me of stout, with some roasted/ bitter qualities. The taste is unlike anything I’ve had... the grain content is immediate obvious, yet there is more depth with the coffee/ roasted bitters. Well bodied, complex beer. 3.65

Very respectable beer. Nice aroma of bread, rye, other herbs. The color is a nice amber reddish color, white head. The flavor follows the aroma, bready, rye, malty. The finish has a nice hop bittering. Excellent. Medium mouthfeel.

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.
