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.

JorisPPattyn (9050) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Fast gone head over very hazy orange, tea-coloured beer. End of bottle UFO-infested. Lactic acid, rye very obvious already in the nose. Sour oranges, mandora’s, with a grainy finish. Sour is no longer really lactic, seems more as from sour dough. Fruity yeastesters. Very chewy, yeast-filled; sharp finish and tart. Nice, but I can’t see myself finishing a full 75cl bottle of this.

deekyn (1457) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
A - pours hazy deep golden yellow(almost orange) with very high fluffy head that disapates after a minute or two. S - much like a gueuze. Some quiet funk(Brussels sprouts), citrus fruits grapefruits and tangerines. Metallic notes. Apples and pineapples. Hints of the rye as well. M - medium bodied sour beer. Very lambic gueuze. Fruitier brew with a nice complex palate. Lingering quiet spicy rye and oak notes. Nice combination of a sour and the rye barrels. T - some vinegar and funk, sour apples and tangerine up front, much like a gueuze but fruitier. Sour pineapple, grapefruit and apple as well. Faint sweetness in the back ground. These give way to a nice grassy oaky spicy rye ending. O - very good sour. Simple and cleaner than the last few sours we've had. 7+

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2012
Poured into a tulip. 3.0 A: This isn’t any fun. Seems to be barely carbonated. I got a about one finger of foamy white head that fell almost instantly. Lightly hazed yellow orange color. 4.0 S: Never smelled anything quite like this. The rye does some great things in here. It gives a huge "grainy herbalness" that I can’t help but love (almost like caraway seeds). Big lemony fruitiness. Not very sour though. A light tartness with little acidity. Oaky and herbal with lemon tartness. 3.5 T: Tastes similar to the nose. Herbal caraway seed graininess. Spicy earthiness. Tart lemon juice. Lightly acidic overall. Very minimal funkiness. Not very complex, but tastes good. 3.0 M: Medium body. Carbonation is a bit too low. Not particularly creamy or spritzy with a tangy lemony finish. 3.5 D: Tasty beer and nothing quite like it. I’ll enjoy my other two bottles. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-22-2012 02:07:26

Bottle from the beautiful thome50. He’s a gorgeous man, seriously. Just a touch of haze on this golden, caramel colored beer. A small off white head quickly recedes to just a color. Pretty nice looking. It also looks nicely carbonated. Tart aroma with a bunch of acidity. Cherry, oak, slight rubber cement. Not bad. Taste is also tart as balls!! Makes my mouth pucker. Cherry, some oak, green apples, green grape skin. Mmmm!! I really enjoy this. Tart, medium bodied. Good stuff.

jbeatty (1239) - New York, USA - APR 10, 2012
2012 bottle, 04/10/2012. Pours an unclear amber brown, good depth to the color, thin foamy head recedes to marbled surface haze, moderate lacing. Creamy aroma of peaches, apples with definite lactic character,sour red cherries, caramel with spicy malt base, some wood. Taste is strongly acetic, sour tropical fruit and cherries, perhaps some spice in the finish. Rounded mouthfeel but sourness a bit overpowering without taking your time. Decent sour for fans of the style.

On tap at Barcade. Sherry-like pour with moderate white head. Aroma is acetic of red vinegar and sour cherry. Rodenbach Grand Cru qualites in the flavor: vinegar, cherry, lemon, and a bit of funk. Moderate acetone in the finish. A touch too acetic for my tastes but very nice nonetheless.
