  • From a bottle dated March, 2011, batch 2, 1170 bottles.

    Pours clear and effervescent. Foam is a third of a glass of light tan, thickness. The foam slightly froths up as it recedes leaving no real traces.

    Aroma is Belgian yeast with a twist of pepper. A dark fruit, probably a plum, cuts in late. Sweetness if evident too.

    Taste is similar. Yeast, pepper, and dark fruits dominate. Sweetness and dark fruits build towards the end where a big hit of spice (pepper) hits and lingers.

    Medium body or bigger as this is thick. Carbonation is mild.

    I just couldn't get into this beer. The finish is really strange, lingering much longer and with a flavor profile that wasn't happy to the palate. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • In Old English wr?gian means to go, strive, tend, swerve. With this beer we meld the spiciness of Rye with our house yeasts to create a smooth beguiling beer. Great with barbeque, Thai, Indian or by itself!
