COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy amber pour. Sour, slightly spicy aroma. Flavor is relatively straightforward, but refreshingly tart. The rye doesn’t come through as much as I was expecting but this is still a great sour.

GTAEgeek (1920) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2016
On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours a hazy orange color, with a medium, beige head. The nose is butterscotch, cloves, lemon peel, and black pepper. Aggressively sour flavor, with a smooth sweetness. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, creamy and thick. This is a heavy, assertive, and focused sour. Quite tasty.

Bottle, 75cL. @Naintré. Shared with my dad and my mom. A brown-orange opaque beer with a medium white head ; poor retention. Wood, vinegar, light caramel, cereal, vanilla, pancake. Light sweet, medium to heavy dry sour ; thirst-quencher. Medium body, thin texture, average to soft carbonation, woody vanilla acid finish. Overall, a great one !

Amber in color, white head with a nice cascading lace. Aroma of sour barnyard, hay, peaches, lemon. Very big and dry on the tongue with more peach, lemon and white grape. Big yet pleasant tartness throughout.

Zlotta (2083) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2016
Sampled from 0.75 l bottle, shared by mariuspoenari, thanks! Hazy, golden amber with an off-white head. Sweetish, sourish-fruity and moderately funky aroma of peach, lemon, rhubarb, oak and some barnyard. Quite sour, very fruity and moderately funky taste of lemon, peach, rhubarb, oak and barnyard, followed by a medium long, rather tart, woody-dry finish. Thin to medium body, quite astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice, but also very sour!
