COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with little head Aroma is vinous with some peppery notes. Taste is immediately mouth puckering. Sour wine/grapes and some earthy funk. The occasional floral note makes an appearance. Full mouthfeel with a heavy carb. Very complex and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johnnnniee (2975) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Sampled at EBF 3/16/13. They ran out of Black Tuesday 40 minutes into the fest, so I tried this. Lightly tart a little spicy with hints of dark pitted fruit. Nice sour.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Hazy amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is lactic sourness, vanilla, spicy earthiness. Flavor is tart, very dry, spicy, slightly woody, a really nice twang, but with a lot going on in the background. Excellent beer.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Hazy amber pour. Sour, slightly spicy aroma. Flavor is relatively straightforward, but refreshingly tart. The rye doesn’t come through as much as I was expecting but this is still a great sour.

thirdeye11 (5816) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2013
(Draught) clear medium amber/orange, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of sour cherries, fresh bread, yeast, orange peel, lightly spicy rye. Taste is very tart, lemon, rye, citrus zest and pulp, seriously puckeringly Tart beer, just how I like it. I’d almost call it tongue numbing.

mansquito (4196) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap ($10): Pours a reddish color with off-white head. Aroma is cherry, vinegar. and wine. Taste is rather sour. Ain’t the most sour thing I ever had, but it don’t skimp. Nice vinous flavours. Sustained aftertaste. Sourness, but doesn’t have too much bite. I didn’t really get too much rye out of this. Wood was there too.

Warped_Silver (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 19, 2013
On tap at Pangea. Golden color with short lasting head. Mild sour and malty smell. Intense sour taste, but well balanced. Amazing beer. One of the best sours I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a golden orange, no head. Aroma is tart and warm, hints of cherry/sweetness. Body thicker, rye and wood become much more prominent as beer warms. While certainly good, this beer somehow strikes me as an exercise in extremes, as opposed to a well-balanced ale. It is sour, no doubt about that.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Tap at Beer Study. Pours super cloudy orange, looks kinda similar to the last pour/yeast of a fou foune or similar colored sour. Nose is big and acetic, some wood and balsamic vinegar, light peach/apricot fruit. Flavor is similar, heavily acetic, light lactic character. A bit out of wack, but they’re a Bruery.
