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 youíve got a mouthful!

Bottle from Hopscotch. Pucker up and get ready for a wild ride. This beer is full of awesome sourness. First I didnít taste or smell any rye, but I didnít care. From nose to mouth, I would say it was like sour tasting pop rocks in your mouth. The higher abv really helped give this beer some extra body but without the booze taste. This is a Top 3 American made sour and I would love to have another bottle.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours hazy yellow-orange with a tiny off-white head. Nose is malt, vinegar, oak, a bit of sweetness (vanilla?), lacto and some bugs. Flavor is similar with wood, vinegar, tartness, and vanilla. Medium in body and full of flavor from start to finish. Very nice sour.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Sour in the rye. 750ml bottle thanks to stfun sharing at the Jackie Oís release party... Pours an apple cidery reddish amber hue with a skimmish fading light head... Cidery vinegar sour cherry aroma. More solid than whatís described here for fairness sake... Flavors coincide with the aroma with apple cider and acetone, somewhat acidic, decent carbonation with somewhat of a boozy finish. Enjoyed. 8/4/7/4/15

Bottle pours orange-gold with an eggshell head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, vanilla, white wine vinegar, oak, apple, and cherry. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of funk, clove, and a hint of strawberry.

Scopey (8468) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle, thanks to madmitch76. It pours hazy red chestnut brown, with a thin off-white head and low carbonation. The nose is strawberry, sour cherry, malt vinegar, varnish, wood, bonfire and alcohol. The taste is tart raspberry, cherry, strawberry, malt vinegar, wood, tart green apples, lactose and vanilla with a vinegary finish. There is a fairly strong acid and alcohol burn in the finish. An interesting sour, but I found it pretty tough to get through the whole glass.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2011
750 bottle shared with some buds. Super sour aroma, hints of spice and pepper. Flavor was over the top tart, canít remember having a more tart sour then this. The wine barrels really play a big role in this one. A pretty extreme sour and not for the faint at heart.

Sample from a bottle shared by stfun. Pours a cloudy amber brown with a medium off white head. The aroma has tart fruit, acidic, oak with a spiciness that probably comes from the rye. The flavor has a nicely tart cherry fruitiness, clean lactic acidity, oak, mild vinous notes and peppery spice. No idea this was 10%. I enjoyed this quite a bit and would love to see it again.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bottle short sample at a tasting. Pours a bruin body with an off white head and little retention. Aromatically sour and rye body. Sour cherry and red wine notes. A mild spicy oakiness, woody, splintery wood, and a pepper note. Rye seeds, whiskey sour mix, tacky body with a mild nuttiness and hint of lemon acidity. Alright.
