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!

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a small white head of foam. Aroma is predominantly sour with a spicy rye character hiding in the background. Some funky shit. Taste is sour and nicely spicy rye character. Interesting sour, and very tasty. Good stuff for sure.

Bottle from Casanovas in Hudson, WI. Has big lemon yeasty sour funk aromas. Taste is very puckering and super tart, big bold lemon with a bit of spiciness, minimal hints of barrel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange in color... Aroma of sour citrus... Flavor is intensely sour, lemon tartness dominate, slight spice from the eye, definite notes of vanilla and oak... Amazing

Draft at ebp. Pours a cloudy muddled orange. Lots of sluggish slow-rising carb. Loose tan head. Light stringy lace. Piercing lemon and balsamic nose. Dense heavy body with soft carb. Lemon and balsamic mid palate, not a lot of rye presence or anything else. Intense sourness but could use some balance or roundness.

Nickls (1857) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Tap. Bigger fluffy white head that lasts well on a hazy burnt darker rust orange. Cherry sourness, raisin, vanilla and woody notes in the aroma. Very sour, some slight mineral, light prune, minimal cherry-like notes and a liqueur finish. Medium softer body. Fairly solid.

750ml Bottle from Brewtopia of Port Jeff. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small sized off white head. Rye, bread, woody, and citrus. Great sour finish. Alcohol content very well hidden. Nice rye and sourness marriage. Highly recommend for the sour lovers

Pours blood orange into a tulip. White head with medium retention crackles as it recedes leaving trailing scant sheets. Sour cherry aromas. Tart with cherry, pit fruit and rye front to back and into the lasting lactic finish.
