This unusual style features a grain bill that is nearly half rye… I know; Crazy! Delicious spicy rye is complemented by slight notes of banana from the hefeweizen yeast used for this beer. Brewed on Raleigh Brewing Company’s system this beer represents the first inner Raleigh collaboration!

Growler from the super-nice dudes at the brewery. Pours a hazy brown with chestnut-orange hue. Foamy, very light beige head and some decent lacing. Nose of grain and rye and banana-like hefe yeast. Taste adds a bit of sweetness, a decent rye kick, and a dry finish. A little thin. Basically a rye dunkelweizen. Interesting.

On tap at TBC. Amber brown pour, moderately bright (but that may have been the afternoon sun more than anything). Crisp carbonation, light grain and esters in the nose along with considerable pepper/rye spice. Mouthfeel is light, fairly elegant and refreshing. But the flavors didn’t entirely sell, since they simply doubled down on the roggen in a way that led to imbalance.

Soft brown/amber pour with a thin sandy head. Light fruity sweetness in the nose and a touch of apples skins. Bready and cereal grain notes in the flavor. Spicy malt profile. Strange. Light medium body, a touch thin.

Growler from the brewery picked up by durhambeer for me. Thanks bob. Pours a thick brownish amber witha sudsy yellow white head. Nose is fruity, herbal, light florals. Flavor is a little iffy. The mouthfeel is super syrupy but the flavor is not overly sweet at all; more herbal, floral, light clove and Hefe like notes. Weird beer. The palate makes it hard to consume or even recognize as beer.
