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!

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2011
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
