bottle, amberish pour, medium bodied. Banana & clove hefe like characteristics, rye adds an unique spiciness. interesting beer cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during 7/5/2014 Seattle beer tour. Pours a bit hazy, deep rust orange appearance with a thin tan head. Aroma is very spicy with lots of nutmeg and clove and pears. Spicy rye, caramel, black bread flavor. Very spicy. Heavy phenols and esters. Not my favorite. bley7211 (22) - - MAY 26, 2014
Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Produced a clear amber color with a thin white foam head. Aroma is banana and taste is spectacular with the hefeweizen yeast! Immediate favorite. Just thankful I live in Seattle where I can get it frequently! fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Draught at the breweryandrewje41 (4252) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Hazy dark amber color with creamy head. It has some character of Dunkelweizen, but it’s a bit too yeasty, mainly the aroma. The rye has some value, there is some banana and clove, but in the end it’s an ordinary beer.
Draft at the brewery. Love this style. Banana aroma with some sweet malt. Banana and clove flavors definitely present. Really nutty too. Drinks easy with a semi -sweet bread. Love this beer.

Bottle... Clear amber pour with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is equal parts rye, hefeweizen yeast - and its associated esters and phenols - and caramel malt. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Nicely balanced notes of medium-roast malts, hefeweizen yeast spiciness, and gritty rye. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and mildly phenolic. Kudos to 50belair for sharing his bottle of this interesting beer! Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Interesting brew. Deep amber in color. Easy to drink. Sweet malt flavors of toast, light caramel and nuts. Banana esters gave it a nice dimension. Tasty stuff. Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
650ml bottle. Deep amber/brown with good size head that leaves behind some lacing. Aroma: rye! Plus light toasted and light floral notes. Taste has plenty of peppery, gingery rye spice. It does taste like a rye hefeweizen just like the label says, but with less of a yeast-dominance. Pretty good stuff. kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Tap. Pours a crystal clear reddish amber body with a small wispy white head, The nose is really nice, lots of earthy rye bread and minimal hops, letting the rye shine. The flavor is a bit thin, but lots of earthy rye and rye bread notes. There are some moderately bitter hops in here, but they are second fiddle to the rye. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with some fizzy carbonation and slightly clingy maltiness. Pretty damn nice Roggenbier. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottled on my wife’s birthday. Consumed 26OCT13
Pours amber with a thin sheet of white foam. Smells like buttered popcorn, toasted rye chips. Flavor isn’t much either, grain, some toast, some more butter, some astringency. Medium on thin with a moderately sparky carb and a dry finish. Overall really don’t feel this beer.
