COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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 of fruit, flowers, oak to back up the vinegar and barnyard flavor. This is a legit, top-notch sour.

CousinBrenden (125) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 21, 2015
Sour oaky lemon tart aroma. Very lively carbonation. Flavor of wet rye and sour mango tartness. Finishes of many light dried fruits and a lingering tartness.

McCarty23 (53) - Vista, California, USA - APR 17, 2015

dogfishho (653) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
Mild citrus tart notes with a bit of spice in the background. Well balanced with a clean finish. Could drink this all day.

LapinMalin (11) - Nancy, FRANCE - FEB 27, 2015
Superbe nez toasté, vanillé. En bouche, attaque avec une acidité franche. On retrouve les arômes grillés / toastés du nez. Sensation fruitée, sur fond caramélisé et vanillé. Le bois reste bien présent également. Finale longue et acide, sur des notes de cerises...

weihenweizen (2064) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Refrigerated 75 cl 2014 brown bottle poured into a tulip. Slightly hazy burnt orange with small white head. Aroma is tart, medium body, medium/low carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is tart cherry, oaky, earthy, some rye. Complex, but not a favorite.

dnstone (2349) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Musty grape aroma. Nice tart character but sweet enough to balance it out; grape, tart, funk. Golden color with white head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
