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:   Fireweed honey in color, hazy, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Big bright sour nose, funky, slight unripened cherry and oak.   Not sure about the Rye aspect.   Really bright on the tongue, super tart, okay so its sour, very dry, puckering, and thankfully without a strong vinegar or salivation aspect.   This is a great solid example of a Sour Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Not getting the unripened cherry and oak on the finish, well perhaps a little oak.   Mostly a fantastic example of a Sour Ale.   Tart, dry, becoming sour but without over salivating.   Rye... what rye?   Who cares, this one is solid!

On tap, pours a dark orange with semi creamy white head. Aroma is sour fruit then followed by butter/diacetyl. Taste is sour up front but goes away quick and then the diacetyl quickly takes over, maybe some rotten peaches mixed in. Maybe its an off keg but This beer is a serious diacetyl bomb with tons off butterscotch off flavors. A very over rated and poorly brewed beer. not good...admit the flaws people, i know its hard to properly rate a beer when its over $20 a bottle but come on this beer is flawed

We live for the funk. We die for the funk. This was a good brew that really made me start to really enjoy sours.

Pours a hazy orange color with 2 fingers of foam. Nose of sour cherries and vinegar. Taste of sour cherries, lemon, vinegar. It's definitely a sour ale! It's ok and a good sour ale - I just don't love the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dmac (4849) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
2013 bottle shared by Scott. Poured a brownish/orange body with a larger fluffy off white head. Aroma started off dusty cellar, lots of sourness, cherry and lemons, floral notes, vinegar and acidity. Palate on this is great, medium body, smooth and creamy drinking, an acid burn that lingers for a bit, nice. Flavor is loaded with acidity, funkiness, lemons, vinegar and earth from the red wine barrels. Great beer despite the big price tag.

Bottle shared big thanks to Scott. Pours out a nice amber color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is of sour/tartness with grainy spice, light caramel and a little more funk. Taste is complex, caramel, grain, spicy rye malts blend with tart/sour funk, mild sweetness, and some lightly dry/funky notes on the finish. Nice balance of flavors, lots going on.

Bottle 75cl from Allen and shared with him. A cloudy orange beer with good head and lacing. Nose is amazing on orange, sour and brett touch very inviting. Aroma is quite acid and vinegar like with a fresh apricot notes, typical lambic notes good complexity, tart and sour touch. Pleasant long sour apricot aftertaste. light wood notes, well done and refreshing.

2013 bottle. cloudy orange tan body with a nice lasting head. smells of toffee and that hard to name scent that tells me this is gonna make my jaws tighten while i smile. tart light blueberryish note really hits the back of my tongue more than anywhere else. a bit of smooth wood notes in the finish really work well here. a damn pleasure of a beer.
