I was especially impressed with this offering. The beer poured a cloudy and hazy brown color, with a tan head. The head left a generous amount of lacing around the glass. The nose was a little bland, with only a few notes of grains and rye bread. The body didnít contain much rye flavor, though. That was the most disappointing characteristic of this beer. It just didnít come through with the promised flavor. The body was a little on the light side, only offering a little bit of malty sweetness with some caramel and bread thrown in.

Draught at Phoinexville BrewPub: Aroma of malts, slightly floral hops, slight vegetables, slight caramel, and slight yeast. Pours brown/slight amber in color with a small beige head that lasted throughout. Very hazy. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor of yeast, caramel, and malts. Medium body. Medium texture. Average carbonation. Malty, yeasty, spiced finish.

Tap at IH Pville. Pours a really nice hazy deep orange amber with a medium creamy off white head that laced. Aroma was a nice banana and clove notes, nice spicy rye coming through along with some cereal grains and sweet fruit salad. Flavor of sugar coated bananas, spicy rye that was a bit covered up by how sweet this was coming across, some light clove and toasted malt. Does dry out a bit as it warms up.

Poured a murky brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye, nuts, caramel malts, citrus, and toffee. Taste of vanilla, caramel, nuts, more rye, with light spice, some citrus, and low bitterness, with an enormous mouthfeel, and dry finish.

Draft a P-ville. Pours turbid brownish clayish colored with off-white head. Aroma is clovey spicy, with a lot of red winey fruit, rye bready yeasty wafts, plus some hoppy and peppery notes. Tastes rye malty up front, with a nice fruity mid-palate leading to a peppery and clovey finish. Very unique and very well done.

Appears a cloudy, murky brown with a small, off-white head that fades into a mild cap with a small collar. Smell is of bananas, cloves, caramel, cocoa, light apple, and dry rye. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with clove and pepper standing ontop of the estery yeast and dryness of the rye. Mouthfeel is full bodied, yeasty, estery, and balanced with ripe bananas, caramel, yeasty dryness, and roasted nuts combining on the palate for a well done brew.
