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.

Bottle at CapFlu’s Blomster Bash, 7.8% ABV
Muddy amber color. Very nice aroma, fruity, funky, woody. The flavor is very lemony and acidic; in my opinion another unclassy attempt by American breweries.

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
