COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sour in the Rye is an American wild ale. A challenging beer to brew due to the substantial amount of rye malt, but you’ll be glad we took the time. The character of the rye asserts itself with clove and pepper in the aroma and flavor, and contributes a full body not generally found in sour beers. Pleasantly sour with notes of tart cherry, rustic earth and vanilla notes from a year-plus of barrel aging.

Bottle from Tipples. Pours a nearly clear dark orange color with a one finger off white head. Sour lacto dominates the nose with some apricot, peach, and a little white vinegar. Not the peach version but still has some of those notes. Really nice. Flavor is a nice crisp sour green apple, with plenty of lacto and big acidity. Some light fruits and a hint of spice in there dancing around, and a clean dry finish. Light to medium mouthfeel with effervescent carbonation. Really awesome sour here.

Great example of a sour. Hits you hard up front but then very drinkable and sour throughout. Yes, somewhat barnyardy but in that good sour way.

My first american sour. I do not know why folks think this is so great. It tasted like a dirty sock, essence of barn and the mold growing on the spaghetti in my fridge. If you didn’t tell me this beer was supposed to taste like this I would have returned it! On the plus side there is a solid woody flavor which grounds it in its wildness. The hops add some bitter and fruit. And the tartness is muted and rounded which is a nice change from the sharp tartness of the other wild/sour beers I’ve had.

caesar (6371) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2014
Bottled, 2013 version, medium sample. Slight hazy golden color, short head. Aroma is very fruity, slight flowery, tart, some horseblanket and barnyard. Quite sour in taste, but never dry, some sweetness and body to balance the soft sourness. Great combination of citric acid and a bit lactic acid. Wonderfully balanced and wonderfully complex. Superb beer!

Mep3222 (1135) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Vinous sour and dark complex fruity aroma. Oaky, peppery, dark fruit in the aroma. Taste is brilliant vinous sour. Prop 7 of 10 vinous. Get the lactic sour, some oaky flavors, some peppery spice and maybe even some orange peel like flavors. As with all the bruery sours this one is fantastic. The more I drink the more I like it. Competes with oude tart for my favorite bruery sour so far ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014. Clear light copper with orange hues, small white head. Very nice mix of aromas including sour cherries, pepper, light acetic note with some funky notes. Light body, crisp, dry palate, very sour, acidic cherries and some wood in the end. Very palatable, a bit too acidic for my liking, but quite nice nonetheless.
