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.

Sour oaky lemon tart aroma. Very lively carbonation. Flavor of wet rye and sour mango tartness. Finishes of many light dried fruits and a lingering tartness.

Smells like a very dry Chardonnay not buttery just light white grapes. Flavor of some cherry tart flavor and champagne like finish.

Mild citrus tart notes with a bit of spice in the background. Well balanced with a clean finish. Could drink this all day.

Superbe nez toasté, vanillé. En bouche, attaque avec une acidité franche. On retrouve les arômes grillés / toastés du nez. Sensation fruitée, sur fond caramélisé et vanillé. Le bois reste bien présent également. Finale longue et acide, sur des notes de cerises...

weihenweizen (2369) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Refrigerated 75 cl 2014 brown bottle poured into a tulip. Slightly hazy burnt orange with small white head. Aroma is tart, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is tart cherry, oaky, earthy, some rye. Complex, but not a favorite.

dnstone (2377) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Musty grape aroma. Nice tart character but sweet enough to balance it out; grape, tart, funk. Golden color with white head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HenriqueBraga (125) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 20, 2015
Âmbar com nuances de rubi. Boa espuma, embora não muito persistente. Aroma incrível de maçã, canela e cereja, acético. Na boa, o centeio é presente e o acético também. Final doce e acético. Ótima cerveja.

Bule (1327) - California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
750ml bottle of 2013 vintage. Pours a reddy brown color without much head. Lots of sourness, and mild rye spiciness to add some complexity.

petergaynor (137) - NEW ZEALAND - DEC 31, 2014
750ml bottle, pours rich hazelnut amber with a hint of red, thin dissapating head. Nose is a hint of sourness with raisin. Taste is slightly on the sour side with some citrus and spice coming through. Deliciously well balanced beer.
