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 theyíve restrained themselves. Overall, very, very nice!

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
