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.

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 (4059) - 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.

dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
Ruby pour with a bit of head that quicky disappears. Aroma is not very strong, but indicative of the sourness, as well as a leather and woodiness. Taste is vinegar, tart cherry, the sourness here is relatively light, very nice. This is a great warm weather beer, too bad its -25 here.

Red-orange with a white head. This is definitely one sour beer. I get a lot of funk and sour cherry notes up front, as well as some light leather, biscuit malt and rye. Very acetic and puckering. Delicious, and glad I got to try it.
