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!

This one poured a hazy dark orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of rye, light vinegar, lemons, smoked malt, and yeast. Flavor was fairly tart, but not quite as strong as other Bruery sours iíve had. Not aedic like other ones either, more lactic and refreshing. overall a nice sour from the Bruery.

Not huge on sours with rye but as usual The Bruery always finds a way to take a style I am not crazy about and actually make me go back and buy another bottle to try again.

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2013
Tap at fireworks - pours hazy amber with a big Cabernet, must, sour cherry, vanilla, and rye aroma. Taste is just this side of being too sour, but theyíve restrained themselves. Overall, very, very nice!

4/25/13. 750mL bottle thanks to nulledge (also tasted at CBC). Hazy golden pour with a nice khaki head. Spiced cream aroma with wood, wine, sour sweet tarts, and grapes. Very tart flavor, more chalky sour sweet tarts, lingering sour acidity, wood, and vanilla. Finishes quite dry. Tasty!

750---->globe. Pours an orangeish amber with a small, quickly dissipating head and no lace. Aroma is funky grapes and apples. Taste is super sour acidic grapes and a touch of peppery spice. Medium mouthfeel with very little carbonation. A top notch sour in every sense.

An aroma that starts out good and ends up top notch. A good strong sour and peppery bite. This is what I was looking for! The funk is strong and grainy and escellent. Absolutely loved it. First time I was blown away here.

Simply incredible. One of the best sours Iíve ever had, and easily the best American sour. Perfect balance of tartness and spice for a truly unique, refreshing drinking experience.
