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!

Bottle to snifter. Hazy light brown pour with a off white collar. Aroma is funky sour bitterness. Taste has a sweet sour start and Leeds into a sweet malty bread and maybe some fruit as well. Palate is fizzy and caulky with a slick chaulky finish.

On tap at The Bruery in August 2009. Pours a nice, light moderate orange color with a good head. The nose brings forward orange, cherry, rye, and a good dose of sourness. A bit vinous. The taste is mildly fruity with a bit of spice and some good sour notes. Moderate body with a really nice amount of sourness. Overall, this drinks quite well and I was really thrilled to be able to try this. This trip was some of my first exposure to The Bruery’s beers and I’m glad that they have nice experimental brews like this on. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-23-2010

Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of fonefan. A rather flat one, but not entirely flat. Some off-white bubbles around the rim. The aroma has vinegar, oak, cherry pits, some spiced notes, hints of vanilla and a little alcohol. The flavor goes in the same sour direction. It’s acetic and cherry infused, almond notes and a touch of oak and vanilla chimes in, some alcohol too, giving a slight burn towards the end. It’s full-bodied, warming and puckering on the palate. A touch of tropical fruits towards the very end. Although it doesn’t look too good when out of the bottle, it sure tastes and smells good. Definitely a sipper, but I wouldn’t resist sipping one on my own. 110318

Bottle @ Norway/Denmark Tasting @ Ulfborg. Courtesy of Fonefan. Thanks a million. Pours ruby amber red with a small bubbly head on top. Nose is tart and oaky. Red berries. Very sweet with quite a bit of vanilla. Sweet, yet tart and prickly. Acetone and a bit of vinegar. Very American.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2011 Another bottle courtesy of Dstructo. Hazy burnt orange pour with a small white head. Barnyard funk, sour fruit and oak aromas. Taste is super sour with a hint of saltiness. Kinda reminds me of sour patch kids. Good stuff..

Clear, rust/orange red in the glass with initially large bubbles congealing into a healthy white head that fades out to a thick ring of foam hugging the glass. Aroma is sharp tart, cherry, deep rye, soft vanilla, and oak. Taste is medium tart up front followed by heavy, near medicinal cherry, oak, and a somewhat clumsy tart grinding through the finish. Comes across as loose and imprecise but there are some heavy hitting tart/sour notes that really hit home through the taste. Good sour but it could be exceptional if the Bruery could figure out how to present the beer with a dryer, tighter aroma/flavor profile.

another beer from the tasting that to not review it, would be criminal! .. . Pours a murky wood tan .. medium foam head, sticky lacing .. . crazy flavours with this one: wood, rust, carrot peeler, rye, grain, dirty hay, and woody funk .. . lots going one but to much rye for me .. . I’m my own Crumb..

Bottle shared by some awesomely generous folks at Jackie O’s on 2/5/11. Cloudy orange/amber pour with a thin off-white head. Funky aroma with sour lemon acidity and a bit of apple note. Rye malty flavor starts you out, followed by tart apple juice and a funky sour lemon finish. Very nice.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Sample at the Jackie O’s Bottle Sale/ Stout and Big Beer Fest on 02/05/2011. The beer is a hazy orange color with a thin off-white head that dissipates to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sour fruits and rye. Medium body with flavors of tart fruit, peppery spices, and caramel malt. The finish is fruity with a sour aftertaste. Good beer overall.
