Whoa, a rye beer with hefe yeast. You got my attention.
You simply must keep us posted, I love rye and would be interested to see how it turns out with a little banana and clove.

Sorry for the delay in follow-up posting!



(Sorry also, my cell phone sucks as a camera).

So that's how it pours. The head was initially pretty decent but in the time it took me to get my stupid phone working, it fell off a bit.

My impressions of the beer are that it's very crisp. There's a lot of C02 "bite" there, but there might also be a sharpness/very slight sourness. I don't know if that's traditional for a rye beer.

Bitterness is there but restrained, and sort of melds in with that bite.

No alcohol heat, pretty drinkable. If you had a good glass and maybe some pretzels, and a hall full of people enjoying themselves, you could do 3 of these at a sitting, I feel.
