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!

UPDATED: APR 10, 2012 Draft at barcade. Pours a bright hazy peach colored with no head or lacing. Aroma is apricot and peach, but pretty muted overall. Mouthfeel is creamy and thick and finishes with a nice restrained tartness; notes of peach, funk, oak, white wine and soft, tart ripened fruits. Another solid sour from the bruery.

Courtesy of dcschiller . Pours amber to gold in color supporting a tan like head. The aroma offers up malty sweetness, some spicy rye, some hints of pine hops and then it moves into tart like yeastiness. The taste starts tart and puckery crushed aspirin like and then moves quickly into peach, sweet malts, soured tangelo, wild yeastiness, more sour notes and then tart acidity into the finish. Seems alright.

Really happy to get this bottle. I’ve been wanting to try it for a long time now. Pours a darker yellow/orange color. I can smell the cherry and the rye. The beer smells funkier than it actually tastes. Kind of sweet and malty but just not as sour as I would like. Still fantastic.

Sampled on draft at the Provisions store. It pours muddy orange with an off white head. The aroma is acidic with peaches, bread and caramel. The flavor is sour with notes of lemon, apricot and hints of white vinegar, spice and mild wood. It has a nice bretty finish. Very tart and mouthwatering. Big mouthfeel. Pretty nice sour. The rye added a nice depth to the flavor. A bit on the acetic side for me though.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2012 Appearance: This beer pours with a large white head with tight bubbles. Aroma: This beer is full of cherry notes that is followed up closely by the yeast notes. Taste: This beer tastes exactly like the name of the beer lead me to believe. Wonderful beer

750 ml bottle from the Reserve Society membership I split with bsuedekum. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Looks like an unfiltered cider. Muddled fruity aroma; apples, lemon, berries, oak, sweet malts, vanilla, and peppery spices. The flavor sticks along the same lines, with a lot of tart fruits, sweet caramel and vanilla notes, spices, and a bit of lactic acid. Medium-bodied, tart and muddled, with moderate carbonation. Good but didn’t stand up to the Oui Oui and Filmishmish we opened.

Pours cloudy and dark golden with a thin lingering white head. Aroma is oak, rye, spice. Not much sourness to the nose. Flavor is rye, oak, light tartness and a bit of funk. Has nice smooth finish. Good beer all around.

Bottle from grownfool - thanks! Brownish copper, huge white head. Smells sour, then notes of oak and rye. Huge depth of flavor, lots of lemony sour notes, some lactic sourness, nice mix of rye and oak. Very tasty.

Decent tasting sour. Heavy rye smell with a little bit of vinegar and funk coming through. Huge rye taste followed by a decent sour bite. Not a ton going on here but nicely done.
