    Sampled at GABF on 9/18/2010. This rye beer pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is bready and spicy, sort of like a rye bread. A medium bodied rye beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, bready and slightly spicy. The hops are floral and earthy. Nicely balanced. Smooth taste. It does taste like a rye bread, minus the caraway seeds. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    On draft at the Philly location. The pour was orange in color, decent (but short of impressive) head and lacing. The aroma was sourdough, bready, grainy. The flavor followed, sourdough above it all, yet sweet for sure (I don't care about the word, "sourdough") and finishing with a full rye character. It was a bit too much of the rye bread, but decent, unique, and if you like Jewish Rye Bread, well..... have one!

    Poured a light amber/orange/copper color with a good white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of, what do you know, rye! Medium-bodied with a little carbonation. Flavor was great, tastes just like rye and caraway seeds, but not *too* strong. Very bready though. Also perhaps a hint of citrus? My first rye ale and it was a very good one. I only wish that the rye flavor was even stronger. Definitely a winner.

    07.03.04 Sample snuck from smuggled flip-top (shhh). Cloudy brew, light amber color. Tons of rye, more than others, it really is bready. Funny thing is it’s hard to think of anything other than the rye flavor and aromas. Very tasty, another winner.

    Sampled multiple times at Princeton and brought home a few growlers. Fantastic stuff, I’m definitely raising my score from the previous 3.7 (8-4-7-4-14). This beer is amazing to smell, it brings a new depth of complexity over any rye beer I’ve tried. Yes, it’s intensely bready and you cannot help but be confounded by its uncanny resemblance to rye bread. But how much of that is the power of suggestion? The body is fuller than I remember, and the alcohol more potent, with the presence of doughy yeast that is this beer’s glue. The aromas are beautiful, floral, deep caraway notes, recently cut grains, Montana morning fields. The fullness of the palate culminates in a lip-smacking stickiness. It’s rad.

    Tap @ David Copperfields. This indeed is Rye Bread in a bottle. The best rye beer I’ve had. It’s an orange like color with a smallish thin head. The aroma has a nice flowery citrus thing going on. The rye isn’t over powering but just right. Another winner by Triumph.

    GABF2004... Poured a dark golden color with a white head and light lacing on the glass. Amazing aroma of caraway seed and rye. Minty rye bread taste, slightly sweet. My first rye ale, I really like this one!
