Sour in the Rye is an American wild ale. A challenging beer to brew due to the substantial amount of rye malt, but youíll 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.

A very solid amber gueze-style sour with a really delicious rye kick. Dry, sour and then a rye pepper spice with a little soft oak in the background. Really unique and delicious, wish I hadnít missed out on it last year.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a very small white head. Nose has a hint of red wine in there with a fair amount of sour fruits in there. Taste is smooth and a bit tart and walks up to the line of "too sour" without crossing over. Interesting brew...

bluejacket74 (1848) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
750 ml bottle, ABV says 7.8%. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a cloudy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around for a while. Thereís also a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like lemon, peaches, oak, some funk and an overall tart fruity aroma. The brew tastes like lemon, sour cherries, peaches, apricots, and some vinegar, vanilla and oak. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I donít pick up any rye in this beer, but maybe itís overpowered by the tart/sourness thatís in it. I think itís a good sour brew, Iíd like to try this again. Itís pricey at $19.99 a bottle, but Iíd buy it again. Definitely worth trying!

2011 bottle. Fairly acidic and tart. Decent amount of Rye on both the nose and taste along with a little musty funk and citrus. A little too acidic for a novice sour guy like myself.

JStax (5476) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2013
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.

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 (2389) - Alexandria, Virginia, 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
