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

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 (6428) - 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.

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.
