COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American Wild Rye Ale was brewed with a substantial portion of rye malt, and the spicy character of the grain asserts itself with clove and pepper in the aroma and flavor. Add in sour cherry notes from our special blend of micro-organisms and vanilla from the red wine barrels and you’ve got a mouthful!

I dont like it when i like a Bruery beer but damn it I like it. Aroma is cherry, balsamic, grainy earthy malts and some good balancing sweetness. Sharp tartness and rich maltiness.

Almost clear strawberry/ruby with tiny white head, looks great. Sour cherry lactic acid nose. Taste is big on the sour, dry red wine, vinegar, little oak, I guess rye (but I really don’t know how to describe rye). finishes tart, lemon pucker.
