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!

One fine body…
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!
