COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roggenbier (German for "rye beer") is a style not commonly found in the U.S. Real Ale Roggenbier is golden in color and similar in flavor to a hefeweizen. Traditional German hefeweizen yeast produces notes of banana, clove, and bubblegum. Forty percent malted rye gives this beer a hint of bitterness and a crisp, dry finish. Try it with a pastrami sandwich. ABV: 4.9%, IBU: 10, OG(plato): 12.7

Originally rated on 12/20/08. Had this at Opal Devines on S. Congress tonight Bartender described it as a rye/ hefe mix, he was pretty accurate. It had a golden, orange amber body, not much carbonation or head to speak of. Aroma and flavors of rye, wheat, bubblegum, and lightly spiced. Mouthfeel was smooth and sweet, with a crisp finish. Overall a pretty good beer from Real Ale brew co.

From the keg at Logan’s Pre GABF Party, Denver 10/10/2007 White head. Banana fruit aroma. Amber coloured hazy in appearance and a little rich on the palate. Some dryness in a creamy lasting malt finish.

Tap at the Gingerman Ft Worth. Gold hazy funky nose. Taste is very bitter and buttery. Very light hops-just a strange beer to rate and drink. Not bad but quite different.

Foggy orange. Wheat aroma, served with lemon. Taste is obvious citrus tart up front with the finish of a wheat. I’m not sure if it would stand on it’s own without the lemon though.

On tap at the Gingerman Fort Worth. Pours with a hazed orange body and a small white ring of a head. Aroma is spicy with orange, clove and fruity esters. Taste is spice, orange and clove with a touch of rye. Really a spicy tasting beer. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel.

I thought this was a hefe, but nice call with the rye! Pours a very nice yellow golden sunburst color with a tiny white bubbly head for a ring. Flavors of banana, wheat, gum, belgian spice, bread, and clove are all over this beer. The mouthfeel is medium full bodied and the spicy finish sticks with you. This is a good wheat beer.

Goldish color with not too much head. Very cloudy. Citrus notes with wheat in the taste with a kick of rye in the flavor and aroma. Not my favorite but it was worth trying once.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Tap at Flying Saucer... Pours a thick, peach/orange cheddar with a classic clove and banana aroma. Very thick to the olfactory nerves. Flavor is zesty bubblegum with clove bits and banana chunks. Tickles the tongue and throat as it moves along the palate. Fantastic. Utterly delicious.

on tap at the Flying Saucer, color is almost iced tea, not much head for a hefe, good aromas of banana and spices, flavor is similar with a lot of banana, clove and some caramel and roast grain notes
