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.

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.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a light brown/mahogany, hazy, with small white head. Nose and flavor bring big acetic vinegar notes, along with touches of raisin, booze like brandy or cognac, and light hints of rye malt base. Pretty good and not offensive in any way, but pretty one-dimensional as well.

Bottle. This one opened with foam slowly pouring out the top, not a gusher though. Cloudy orange color with off white head. Aroma was vanilla, rye, barnyard, apricot, and sour. Taste was the same with some barrel and a slight sweetness. The rye fits right in with the sourness, giving it a little bit of spice.

The aroma is strongly funky and complex. Wild animals and vinegar and cheese are up front with hints at fruits, oak, champagne and rye. Using rye in a sour is so smart. The bold and clean funky, sourness blends perfectly with the rye-tartness. To say this is a dry beer is an understatement. There are hints of fruit, flowers, oak to back up the vinegar and barnyard flavor. This is a legit, top-notch sour.

Pours a copper tone with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity and a bit farmhouse smelling, slight must, rye is mild. Taste is sweet upfront. then goes to tart peach skins , vinegar ,background of oaky vanilla hints, sour citrus, only a slight rye spice that’s barely though, finishes giod and dry. Good sour.
