Beer of the Month (May): Redhoook Sunrye

Yes, it's July.  And what better time to introduce May's Beer of the Month?  This time around it's Redhook's Sunrye (I'd link to it directly, but their site is all Flash).

Sunrye is a beer made with a variety of malts that includes rye, so it has a pleasant citrus flavor. I got mine at The Burren in Somerville, Massachusetts, and they decided to enhance the flavor by adding a slice of orange.

I'm used to lemon in a wheat-based beer, but orange adds a very special touch. This is a stellar summer beer, with unique malt flavors, orange or no.
