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 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.

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

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - 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 (977) - 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, I’d just like to be able to pick out some of those other flavors more.
