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.

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.

30-NOV-2013, bottle @home, from Ølbutikken. Hazy dark goldne with high creamy lasting lacing off-white head. Aroma is sour cherries and rye. Taste the same with some brett, red wine. Sour and long. Wonderful.

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 don’t 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 (4062) - 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.

Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Pours almost clear copper with thin to medium head. Smell is tart apples, fruits, lemon, oak, bit of sweet vanilla. Taste is tart green apples, hint of vinegar, oak. Medium palate with nice dryness. Lingering lemony tartness.

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.
