Thanks much from StormKing47 & Stakem for generously sending a bottle of this my way. Drank from my Surly AHA Tally pint glass while grilling and listening to TOOL.

Appearance- Pours a super hazy yellowish orange with a nice one fingered bright white head. A pretty decent cap and collar remain but unfortunately not any lacing.
Smell- Smells pretty much just like you’d expect a Hef to smell. Lightly spicy from the rye with a yeasty clove spice as well. Lots of banana and and bubblegum from the crazy Weizen yeast. A bit doughy and raw with perhaps the lightest touch of citrus.
Taste- Starts pretty doughy and raw with a fairly prominent wheat base. The yeast plays second fiddle surprisingly as the clove and banana are pretty light. The rye doesn’t seem too crazy either as the beer finishes lightly dry and fruity. A bit of banana lingers and lingers.
Mouthfeel- Pretty stout body with a nice rich thickness and light spritzy carbonation.
Drinkability- Not bad I guess but it’s pretty much just a subdued Hef. A light bit of rye does add a touch of bitter/spice but that’s about it. Pretty decent, thanks much gents!

Got this one from number1bum on BA.

Pours a foggy light amber hue with a pillowy white three finger head with chunky lacing left behind. Aroma is mostly yeasty and banana...not as much rye as I expected, or as much as I wanted. Light clove and spice in the nose as well. Taste is a step up from the smell. Rye is once again subtle, but mixes in well with the ester flavor oddly enough. Some bubblegum and grassy flavors dance on the tongue. The moutheel is this beers greatest characteristic, extremely creamy and soft with a light carbonation. I'm not too familiar with the style, but this was a pleasant surprise. I was hoping for more rye, but I shouldn't really complain. Keep the Scratch beers comin' Tröegs!
