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 youíve got a mouthful!

New favorite sour ale, puckering and mouth watering, a golden flavor of warm malts and spices really accent the rye

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tart, sour, citrus, pear and a bit yeasty. The flavor was very sour, tart and yeasty with moderate citrus, apple, pear and cherry with a tangy and somewhat malty middle and a trace of rye spice underneath. Long sour and tart citrus finish. Medium body. A pretty good sour.

WOW is this beer SOUR! No false advertising here! I actually like the taste of this beer, but I'm not sure I could have more than a sip or two at a time. I think it would pair great with latkes and sour cream. :)

ACHops (959) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle @ The Bruery. Pours slightly cloudy golden orange with thin head. Aroma is all big sour notes. Taste is super tart dominated. There a little rye and barrel aged flavors in the finish, but the sour notes really dominate this one. Not a bad thing, as it is an excellent sour, Iíd just like to be able to pick out some of those other flavors more.

Bottle poured an orange amber color with a ring of off white head. Aroma has good acidity, damp yeasty funk, cherry, dark pit fruit, and some oak. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has medium acidity, oak, sour cherry, light rye bitterness, and a yeasty mixture.

2013 bottle. A dark orange-amber ale sits in the glass with a loose off-white head. Some pretty nice lacing left on the glass. The aroma has strong whiffs of white grape and dusty funky notes. Oak definitely there too, with some wild berries. Dry and sour in the mouth, as well as a bit scratchy in the back of the throat. The flavor offers crisp lemon acidity as well as some balsamic acetic notes, and a little farmhouse funk. Tart cherries and a white wine character make for an interesting, and effective combo. Underlying oak notes throughout but not at the forefront. Itís a tad spicy towards the back end, which must be the rye making itís presence felt. Not super easy drinking but this has pretty good drinkability for what it is. I see that the abv has gone down since this beer was first made in 2010. Not sure Iíd like a 10% version of this so I think thatís a good move by The Bruery.
