You really need to let this one warm up a little before drinking it as it lets the rye come through in the finish. Otherwise, it comes across strongly as a hefeweizen. The beer was fresh enough that the yeast hadn't completely settled and lumped together so it was a muddy amber brown. There was heavy carbonation that formed a nice stiff head that lasted nicely. There was a bit of bubblegum and clove in the aroma and flavor. In the finish, the rye really comes out and makes a nicely spicy aftertaste. Good beer.

Full of sediment, suspended paricles afeter carbonation subside. Weird milky sour nose. Pumpkin pie color is pretty cose to perfect. Lots of yeast, weird citrus, tangy, grainy, very much like apricot nectar. If this is how its supposed to be, then so be it. Im going to experiment to see if my sample was over shaken, or mistreated somehow. Drinkable, yet unusual. Strange, yet seductively drinkable. Roggenbier, unfiltered, oh yes. iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Hazy pumpkin, continuous fizz raises through the pulp-like body. Spicey yeast aroma with some pineappleand orange pulp. . . Malt in the aroma is sugary and wet, while the hops are light and sour. Milky mouthfeel with loads of pulp and autumn spicy - pumpkin bread. Very interesting and worth the experience, but not one I would drink frequently. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Big-bubbled tan head atop a murky amber body. Aroma is rye, herbal, and light peach. Taste is about the same, plus lemon (though not especially tart). Light/medium body. Very tasty. beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2003
This is a really good ale. Lemon, citrus, and rye flavor. Finishes crisp, clean and dry. Recommended.

Pours a clouded brown orange with a nice tall, brown, fluffy head. There was a ton of sediment in the bottom. I added it and it went halfway into the beer in the glass and became suspended in the beer in almost a swirl pattern. The nose was somewhat typical of wheat beers, but with more spice. I did not smell any rye in this. However, you could taste the rye. The beer is basically a wheat beer with rye. Not a typical wheat but definitely recommended. The finish is a little bitter but smooth. Great beer! estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Very cloudy orangish-brown body, fairly big offwhite head with loose bubbles, sweet, wheaty aroma with hints of spice and a bit of sourness. Some wheat beer-like flavors, strong malted-milk notes, a touch tart. Certainly unusual. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2003
16.9 oz bottle in its appropriate glass. Large, off-white, frothy head is well lasting. Lively carbonation, deep amber body is hazy and has a few large particles. Mild dark, plumish aromas. Caramel malts, flowery hops, and a light smokey aroma. Moderately sweet throughout, with a little spicey kick from the rye. Much like a German wheat, the hops are well hidden the entire time. Moderate acidity at the end with effervescent carbonation leaves a quenching and refreshing bite. Medium body is watery. The bottom line is: this is an interesting alternative to a wheat beer, if you can find it. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 6, 2003

Murky, cloudy, brown/orange. Big sudsy head. Nose of clove, rye, yeast, slight citrus and others. Medium bodied, watery texture, tangy rye flavors, hints of hallertau, grain and lemony notes. Well balanced, awesome flavor, not much malt flavor upfront but awesome nonetheless. Dry citrusy, yeasty finish. Could use a little more in the nose and a richer texture but this is gooooooood.
