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 youll 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 from Bish/Dom at Gurds bottle tasting evening. Thin in the mouth, but excellent fizz. Beautiful balance and flavour. Light, yet beautifully tart and fruity. Really good.

I dont like it when i like a Bruery beer but damn it I like it. Aroma is cherry, balsamic, grainy earthy malts and some good balancing sweetness. Sharp tartness and rich maltiness.

curepute (141) - New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Almost clear strawberry/ruby with tiny white head, looks great. Sour cherry lactic acid nose. Taste is big on the sour, dry red wine, vinegar, little oak, I guess rye (but I really dont know how to describe rye). finishes tart, lemon pucker.

Sampled at a work co-ordinated tasting. Simply an excellent sour. Very well balanced and void of the "funkiness" that often is present in most sours.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Sampled with kristen on thanksgiving eve. Near clear amber pour with good offwhite head. Tart cherry nose with hints of horseblankets and poptarts. Flavor is sour cherry pie all the way. Similar to smartees sour candies. Red wine qualities, and a mouthpuckering sour finish. for my money, I prefer the oude tart to this, but it is still damn good.
