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.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff! Super clear, amber body with a fuzzy off white head. Aroma is crazy tart, lots of vinegar and lactic acid, wet oak, lemon and light cherry skins. Mild tannic, smells so tart. Taste is very sour; vinegar, oak, acidic and lactic acid, stone fruit skins, some rye dryness, so tart and puckering and good. Thin, wet crispy mouth feel with a dry finish. A very nice "go-to" sour. I love the vinegary, lactic, & acidic nature of this beer... Wheelhouse brew, very good stuff.

Bottle. Pour is a dirty dark orange, tons of acidic sour fruit. Tart as all can be, creamy and fruity. Really interesting and very good.

A marvelous sour, with biscuity, caramel notes from the oak aging. The nose has a bit of citrus and cherry, and is is the color of tangerines or kumquats. The palate has a bit more acidity than I typically care for, but hey, it’s a sour.

Bottle at Syb Pig in Boca Raton for the bottle share. Thanks Derek! Small snifter. Pours a dark orange with thick white head. Aroma of raspberries, cherries and spices. The taste was quite amazing with cherries, raspberries, spices and a blend of sweetness and acid. It was not overly acidic or vinegar. Perfect balance of fruit to tartness.

Spab (3905) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
750 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clear, deep orange with modest near white head. Aroma is full of sourness, mostly cherries but some lemons. Flavour is also huge and sour with lots of cherries, some lemon and orange and only the slightest hint of some mellow oak. Very clean and drinkable. Quite nice.

Bottle:   Fireweed honey in color, hazy, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Big bright sour nose, funky, slight unripened cherry and oak.   Not sure about the Rye aspect.   Really bright on the tongue, super tart, okay so its sour, very dry, puckering, and thankfully without a strong vinegar or salivation aspect.   This is a great solid example of a Sour Ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Not getting the unripened cherry and oak on the finish, well perhaps a little oak.   Mostly a fantastic example of a Sour Ale.   Tart, dry, becoming sour but without over salivating.   Rye... what rye?   Who cares, this one is solid!

On tap, pours a dark orange with semi creamy white head. Aroma is sour fruit then followed by butter/diacetyl. Taste is sour up front but goes away quick and then the diacetyl quickly takes over, maybe some rotten peaches mixed in. Maybe its an off keg but This beer is a serious diacetyl bomb with tons off butterscotch off flavors. A very over rated and poorly brewed beer. not good...admit the flaws people, i know its hard to properly rate a beer when its over $20 a bottle but come on this beer is flawed

We live for the funk. We die for the funk. This was a good brew that really made me start to really enjoy sours.
