Bourbon Aged Reef Rye

Bourbon Barrel Aged Reef Rye

Rye Ale

Reef Rye Brown Ale contains nine different grains (32% Rye), two varieties of hops, and our proprietary yeast strain. Reef Rye is an attempt to make an otherwise boring style of beer (Brown Ale) very interesting. The solid malt backbone comes from the addition of Chocolate Malt for color, and Special Roast Malt for baked bread flavors. Has a big aroma, not usually associated with Brown Ales, from Palisade hops and coriander added post fermentation. Both hops and coriander are rich in linalool. Coriander, added post fermentation with the extra hops, helps add to some of the aroma traditionally derived from dry-hopping alone.

Linalool- a naturally occurring chemical found in many flowers and spice plants with many commercial applications, the majority of which are based on its pleasant scent (floral, with a touch of spiciness). Linalool is an influential part of hop aroma in many varieties and, depending on hopping regimes, in finished beers as well. S-linalool has a sweeter, more floral aroma, while R-linalool has a wood, spicy, and lavender-like character. Pure linalool as a very pleasant sweet, tropical, fresh floral character.
