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.

jbruner (3033) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
2013 bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown with little to no head or lacing. Aroma is heavy on the sour, nice and lactic from brett, a hint of spiciness on the back end. Taste follows, tart spicy goodness. This is probably the best sour I have ever had, psyched to have tried it.

Bottle to Pint Glass. 5/11/13. SO EXCITED FOR THIS! Pours cloudy orange with an incredibly active (obnoxiously so) white head that will not stop. Aroma is all that is good; sour fruits, tartness, vinegar, rye, oak, citrus, candi, Taste is sour for days; fruity, sour candies, vinegar, spice, acidity, citrus, astringent; nice subtle notes of wood, vanilla, earth (from the barreling?); finish is more sour citrus. No lacing. Medium-high carbonation. Astringent, aggressive mouth feel. This was excellent. Reminds me of Sweet-Tarts. Rye in a sour was a great idea.

Big bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy, copper with an off-white, lacy head. Aroma of fruits, cherries, oak, rye, plus a nice sweet tart/sourness. Flavor a really interesting combination of these elements. Average texture. A good sour beer.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2013
On draught. Pours an orange hue with a nice head that disappears rapidly. Aroma is sour fruit and big vinegar and some mild spices. Flavors are sour, then sour, followed by sour; afterwards there is some sour fruit and some funk and finally a very nice spice/pepper and dirt taste/feeling on the tongue and throat. This is pretty close to what I would want as far as mouthfeel; it is a tad bit heavy especially when it warms and has limited carbonation which would help. Overall, a very good sour/wild ale that I will seek out often!

Flaske hos Ole Anders mai-13, 2013-årgangen: et nytt forsøk på surøl, og det går bedre og bedre hver gang! Fristelsene står nok i kø når jeg kommer til Belgia i sommer. Friskt, ungt, syrlig og med stor mersmak. Får vann i munnen av denne, et supert aperitifføl!

Aroma is dominated by acid and fruitiness. Good lactic character with a hint of acetic acid. Nice fruitiness as well with notes of cherries, berries and a hint of tropical fruit. Faint malt backbone. Pours a cloudy copper with hints of orange and red. Head is white and pillowy but recedes fairly quickly leaving a small film on the edges. Flavor starts with a hint of rye character before the acidity takes over. Once agin mostly lactic with only faint acetic undertones. Acidity brings in a lot of fruitiness in the form of cherries and berries. The finish is dry with tart cherries and berries. The acetic acid is a bit more noticeable in the finish but still mellow and I don’t feel it detracts from the beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Could possibly use a bit more carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall a very nice American Wild Ale from a brewery that is doing the style increasingly well. Nice fruit notes to the beer and the acidity is clean and crisp. Fresh and not muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Emeister84 (1642) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Vintage 2013. Aromas of cherry, crabapples, tamarind, mild toast, and subtle vinagar. Hazy orange with a mostly lasting, off-white head. Dry, tart, sour, and fruity, with mild rye upfront, followed by flavors of tangerine, white grapes, and apricot. Light-medium bodied with refreshing carbonation and a dry, clean, tart, fruity finish.
