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!

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%.

Bottle sample at Sour&Bitter 2012 in Copenhagen. Beer in the glass copper coloured, small head. Dry-sourish aroma. Starts mild-sourish, almost a bit salty, modest fruity like lemon. Finish more aggressiv sour. Dry-sour finish, less fruity. Okay.
