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!

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to jp7161 for the 1st bottle / thanks to mathieuc for sharing a bottle of this! Slightly hazy bright golden/copper with a small off-white head that leave a thin ring of foam. Aroma of brett, acetic presence, fruits, wood and spices. Taste of fruity sourness, wood, acetic presence, spices and brettanomyces. Some citric notes too. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A tad mouth puckering. Dry finish. Very good Sour. Balance is ok/good, especially for a Bruery sour. Tasty. Better than Kumquats version I think

Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured deep, amberish-brown with little to no head. Tart aroma. This had a nice body and nice spiced quality. Probably of which the Rye affected. Barrel and oak tones with herbs and sweetness and nice, balanced sourness.

Bottle on my balcony wth John, Eddie, and Ryan. Pour is deep, hazy, copper with a small off-white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is oak, dark cherries, peaches, sour grain, tannin, and light vanilla. Really a lot going on in the nose. Taste is very sour with flavors of light rye, tart apricots, light vinegar, green apples, and funk with a lingering sour finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat sticky with light carbonation. Very complex sour with a lot going on in the nose and taste, just another great beer from The Bruery. Well done.

Apricot and sour cherry aromas, spicy notes. Nice, moderate body like a geuze. Tasty, tasty, tasty. Slight citrus and spiciness, sweet without being heavy?

750 ml bottle poured an amber color, aromas of light vanilla, light vinegar, light spice and a feint hint of tart cherry. Flavors are the same, glad I got to try this one at Markwise’s Bday bash.

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 (5833) - 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.
