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!

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.

10oz draft pour. Poured a slightly cloudy orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma is real tart notes, some light sugar notes, spice, oak notes. Flavor is a nice, extremely start tart character to start with, some vinegar type notes. Malts, oak notes, lactic character throughout the brew. Tons of puckering notes. Friends and bartender didnít seem to care for it at all - Iíll just have some more then. Very good.

Bottle shared by browncar while brewing up a new Belgian Ale this past week, thanks Eric! Pours a nice dark gold with a thick head and lacing in the glass, the aroma has a nice amount of tartness with a little bit of spice and pepper as well, the flavor has a huge tart and sour front end with the barrels coming through in the finish with a good amount of dryness, let this one sit for awhile and around room temp it hit itís perfect point, good amount of tartness with the wine tannins coming through, really good stuff.

HUGE thanks to Bman1113vr for this one, it was a treat. 2012 bottle. Murky orange pour with a white head. Nose is barnyard, blue cheese, pepper, tons of funk! the pepper from the rye is a nice touch, as are the tannins and sourness. Faint bit of fruity pebbles. Flavor is funk, tartness, HUGE amounts of tartness. Big time dryness, mouth wateringly so. In a night with White Chocolate, Black Tuesday, Oude Tart, and Hottenroth, this is the beer that kept me coming back for more. And more. And more. Increible!

Itís really good but not too accessible. I mean, itís really well crafted. Itís really tart and comes through with a punch of smoke, coming from the oak I presume.

Pours a bright, hazy, ruby color with a more thin white head. The aroma is extremely sour and tart, acidic, with lots of elements of cherry, apple, and grape. The taste is all tartness and sour. Flavors of cherry and grape are strong. Taste doesnít pull any punches here. Medium bodied with a more thick texture. Some mild yet bubbly carbonation here. I find this one simply amazing. Of course, if you arenít a fan of sours, this probably wonít appeal to you. However, if you do like these, you wonít find much thats better than this.
