22oz bottle. Rating #10. Clear medium golden pour with a nice white head. Sweet apple aroma, very malty with a little rye spice. Light flavor, smooth eith a nice little rye spice, it’s still a little too light for me. (1971) thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Poured from the bottle. Pours cloudy with sediment. Nice creamy head, no lacing. Aroma is of rye malt. Flavor is similar but not as smooth as other ryes. Palate is full bodied with a oily thick finish. Overall pretty decent rye. ryanfolty (2579) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Date: September 24, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Minneapolis Beer Fest. Full description not available as I sampled way too many beers in 4.5 hours! BVery (10609) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle at Minneapolis Beer Fest. There’s a little rye in here, a little spice, and a little of the barnyard funk you’d expect from a saison. Not enough of the spicy, fruity esters to make this interesting, though. bhensonb (15345) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Bottle says 8%. Pours translucent orange amber with a creamy off-white or beige head. Smells of citrus and a little barnyard. The body is sort of medium creamy. The flavor has rye, some Belgian spice, and some light barnyard accompaniment. Citrus is very light. It gets more saison like with time. Seems like it is a bit confused. Drinks well.

This is the new version of the Ryedentity Crisis. The brewer told me they decided to not make it black anymore. Amazing Rye Saison. Unfiltered, farmhouse aroma and paired very well with my food. bb (9519) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 23, 2011

This smells horrible; like soured milk. Looks nice though. The flavor is interestingly bad. Not real heavy, a bit sweet, but it just can’t quite overcome the outstandingly bad aroma. HughConway (831) - Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Tap at Haud Staudt. Pours dark black, thin head. Rye aroma, rye taste, a bit odd. marcus (10333) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 9, 2011
On tap at Monks Kettle. Pours black with a rich tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a molasses and anise flavor with a rye bread finish.
