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!

Pours a clear amber with no head. Aroma of light bourbon, vanilla and vinegar. Taste follows with some citrus notes. Very tasty, different than your average sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2012
750 ml acquired via trade with mashmaster. Thanks, bud! Shared with the Pipeworks Crew. Rating #3300. Pours a rich well hazed murky amber hue, gentle orange glow, darker and dulled. A frothy beige like head is a firm layer, with some firm lacing, sticks around as a firm lacing. Aromas are a rich lactic element, lemons and pineapple, firmly sweet biscuits, toffee, and a tropical melange. Gentle bretty funk, rich oak, touches of spice. Oranges, sweeter malty elements, a touch of butterscotch at times. Richer oak, vanilla take a dominant position. Initial is richly lactic sour, a melange of fruits mix grapefruit, lemons, and crab apple. Touches of orange, pineapple, and yogurt hit with a gentle acedic quality. Fairly sour, with a sweeter richer fruit middle. growing touches of richer tart orange juice, a touch pulpy. Backend features lingering grapefruit/orange juice elements, tart and fairly sour, lactic elements. Gentle spice, firm barrel gives some touches of buttery oak. Solid. A rich sour flavor and feel on the palate despite a more fruit and buttery and vanilla laden oak nose. Enjoyed, but aroma needs work.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle thanks to Adam! Pours a deep orange hazy apple juice type color. Aroma is acidic, with plenty of fruitiness, some orange and grapefruit along with a touch of cherry. Flavor is very tart, sharp and acidic on the tongue. Still a lot of orange and notes of vanilla in the finish with a lingering tartness. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

Smells great, super lactic tasting, muddy looking, very sour, very very sour, a little too sour which is a hard thing to say. Bit chalky on the palate.

On tap at Thirsty Monk in Asheville, NC. Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma of sour apple, light oak, cherry, and lemon zest. The flavor makes me very happy; sour apple and cherry with light lactic notes. A wonderful sour!

Draft into a tulip at Thirsty Monk. Man, this is some good-ass beer! 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 at fruit, flowers, oak to back up the vinegar and barnyard flavor. This is a legit, top-notch sour.

2012. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head with a funky and spicy aroma, and this has a sweet & sour mix in the taste with some citrus. Enjoyable sour with a dry finish.

Pours light orange with a brown hue. I love the smell because it is funky, fruity, but with hints of spice. Tastes dry sour and delicious. Once again another wonderful Bruery sour. Can’t believe its 10%.
