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.

2013 bottle shared by Scott. Poured a brownish/orange body with a larger fluffy off white head. Aroma started off dusty cellar, lots of sourness, cherry and lemons, floral notes, vinegar and acidity. Palate on this is great, medium body, smooth and creamy drinking, an acid burn that lingers for a bit, nice. Flavor is loaded with acidity, funkiness, lemons, vinegar and earth from the red wine barrels. Great beer despite the big price tag.

pineypower (3173) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle shared big thanks to Scott. Pours out a nice amber color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma is of sour/tartness with grainy spice, light caramel and a little more funk. Taste is complex, caramel, grain, spicy rye malts blend with tart/sour funk, mild sweetness, and some lightly dry/funky notes on the finish. Nice balance of flavors, lots going on.

2013 bottle. cloudy orange tan body with a nice lasting head. smells of toffee and that hard to name scent that tells me this is gonna make my jaws tighten while i smile. tart light blueberryish note really hits the back of my tongue more than anywhere else. a bit of smooth wood notes in the finish really work well here. a damn pleasure of a beer.

Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a dark amber color with a medium sized creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tart, sour, citrus, pear and a bit yeasty. The flavor was very sour, tart and yeasty with moderate citrus, apple, pear and cherry with a tangy and somewhat malty middle and a trace of rye spice underneath. Long sour and tart citrus finish. Medium body. A pretty good sour.
