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 you’ve got a mouthful!

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.

jandd1983 (3114) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 4, 2013
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.

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!
