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.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 It’s weird that this once seemed so impossible to find, and now it’s on the shelves at Total Wine. I’d buy it frequently, except it’s 20 bucks. Damn tasty though, a refreshing sour with some nice grainy spice qualities that make it stand out a bit from the crowd. Nice lemony spritziness makes this one even better than I remembered.

Slightly hazy amberish copper with a thin foamy white head. Deep funky sour and earthy rye malt, fantastic underlying sweetness, a little lacto fruitiness, wood, guava, rye, brown sugar, sour yeast, tart passion fruit and green apple juice. Stupid good flavor with sour lacto tartness, deep malt sweetness, juicy fruitiness, tropical tartness, guava, tart melon, passion fruit, green apple flesh, gentle whiskey and oak...just amazing.

@ Basunen 15-9-19: lite vinäger i doften men smaken är underbar. Härlig syrlighet. Underbar.

Wow. This beer was a perfect sour slap to the face. Aroma was nice. Sour cherry, vinegar and just a slightly woodiness. Pour was a hazy medium brown with a thin off white film on top. Taste was perfect. Stunningly sour. At first sip the taste buds are jolted with the sour cherry and vinegar flavors. The oak came out as it warmed but the gripping sourness didn’t let much through. The strong carbonation intensified this beer.

Dark blood orange color . Intense sour earthy cherry nose. Amazing intensity in sourness, tart, woody, a bit biting in the end. Tingles on top of the mouth . Full !

Cloudy, ruddy orange. No head. You smell it across the table: sourness reaks out of it. Mouth puckering green apple sour, just massive sourness. Pez like end. Wow.

Poured from a bottle. Aroma is funk, vanilla, and subtle hints of pepper and cherry. Hazy orange to amber hue with healthy white head. Extremely tart, sour, and acidic matched with spice and peppery flavors. The cherry in the nose is much less in the taste, perhaps it the rye malt taking over? Wonderful beer!

Habanero (3356) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2015
Bottled. Pours hazy pale amber with a small, lacing off-white head. Aroma of cherry, vanilla, caramel, rye, wood and spice. Slightly sweet lavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Sour. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
