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!

2012 vintage. Deep cloudy orange body with some bubbly white head. Nice and tart nose - some rye, vanilla, oak, citrus, peach. Flavor is fruity, tart, and woody. Nice!

MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013
2013 vintage. Wow- huge smells of sour grapes, vinegar, lemon. More in the flavor, too- spice, tart citrus, vinegar, funk. Interesting how the spicy rye plays against the sour/ tart notes. Very good!

queenholly (3035) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle 2013. Funky barnyard, sour lactic lemon aroma. Slightly hazy copper with a large off-white head. Funky musty lemon, acetic, light spice, and vanilla flavor. Light sweetness smooths the sourness, and keeps this one from being eye-crossingly mouth puckering. Light body, lively carbonation. Very nice, easy drinking sour ale.

Bottle. Musty basement, sour orange/lemon and light vinegar aroma. Sweet-sour orange-lemon, rye malt and light clove flavor. Extremely smooth and tasty. Excellent.

NikkTwist (1774) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Draft at Moriartys. Cloudy orange copper pour. Foamy white head. Strong pungent sour. Only tasting the rye at the very end. Tart vinous flavors. Feels like a lambic. Powerful, but good stuff!

Tmoney99 (11219) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Poured a hazy ruby copper color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark pepper, spice, sour and tannic wood aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tannic flavor with a medium to heavy tannic wood dry and sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

DrSilverworm (7211) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2013
750ml bottle, latest release - brewed 11/23/12, lot 55, 7.8% ABV. Thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Peachy golden color, kind of darker with the complete haze. Thin off-white head. Little loose lace. Awesome tart oaky nose, light influence from the wine barrel in the nose (vinous red grape). Delicious bigger sour taste, some super-sour cherry, yeah. Big body. Kind of viscous and sticky. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Light spicy peppery notes in the finish, along with the big sour. Delicious, complex sour. Normally the lingering syrupy finish would bother me, but in this case I don’t really mind it, it seems.

poured a dark amber color with a fizzled white head. Nice retention. Nose was extremely sour with an herbal quality. Flavor was super sour, clove, lemon rhind, with a peppery rye aftertaste..
