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 you’ve got a mouthful!

Emeister84 (1560) - 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.

2013. Sour white grape rye and vinegar scent. White head and sunburst body. Nice crisp tart rye and sour dry apple taste with slight berry flavors. Tart and carbonated on the palate. Delicious

Headless brown. Aroma and taste are bracingly sour. Unexpectedly like an acid rather than a beer and the cherry notes are like a concentrate. $4/10 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First sour brew that I’ve partaken. Luckily, my friend randomly purchased this $35 bottle without knowledge. It is excellent & truly unique. I will try others down the road.

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma was of red wine and a fair amount of sour fruits. The taste was smooth and a bit tart and was on the spot as far as sours go. Very tasty.

Smells tart, sour, and spicey. Very sour taste. Strong flavor from the wine barrels as well. This beer is super tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 i’ve 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.

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 they’ve restrained themselves. Overall, very, very nice!

Draft at Fire works Leesburg. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. Big sour cherry and Cabernet on the nose and tongue. Quite lovely. Guaranteed to jump start any palate.
