I like the story behind the beer (roggenbier). Taste is different than usual, a bit of the good belgian aroma. Got this one from the Xmas 6-pack sampler. omhper (25810) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
Keg at Mill St., Ottawa. Cloudy brownish amber, small head. Caramelly banana aroma. Mid sweet with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Peppery bread, banana, caramel and notes of cranberries. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2017
Bottle from Mill St. seasonal mixed pack. Dirty copper-brown body with a thin off-white head that fizzes away quickly. Aroma has the clove and banana expected from a wheat beer - although the banana comes across more cooked than the more typical candy-like - along with some caramel and rye sourdough notes. Flavour comes across primarily as a dark wheat ale, with the rye sitting in the background until the end, when it pokes through with a slightly sour and peppery character. Medium weight body that sits nicer on the palate than the murky and still appearance suggests. Not bad. Strangebrewer (1353) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2017
bottle. Poured murky brownish-red with a thin head. Malty aroma with a yeasty hint. Medium body, average carbonation, tart mouthfeel. Spicy rye malt flavour, note of clove, pepper, banana peel, and citrus. AleRider78 (1470) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours an average size foamy tan head and has a murky brown appearance. Lacing is ok. Aromas of bready malts, yeast and resin hops. Flavours are somewhat sweet, quite malty, yeasty. Hints of caramel as well as some spices. Some bready malts and hints of banana on the finish. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. A little bit of a drying sensation on the palate. Pretty good.

Slightly disappointing as a rye beer, perfectly serviceable as a somewhat darker than normal Hefe. I was hoping for a bit more rye presence here, and although I’m getting hints of both sour and peppery spice from the rye, it’s not as bold as I like to see. Like so many Mill Street beers, it ends up being inoffensive, but fairly forgettable. (12/20)

Clear dark-ish red-brown with lush foamy head. Aroma is mostly cereal grain but there’s a slightly sour/sharp fruitiness in there. Big flavour. Can definitely taste the rye in there, gives it a pit of a peppery quality. Alcohol is surprisingly noticeable. Neat.
