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. Sour white grape rye and vinegar scent. White head and sunburst body. Nice crisp tart rye and sour dry apple taste with slight berry flavors. Tart and carbonated on the palate. Delicious

2013 bomber to a snifter. Pours a cloudy orange/brown color with a filmy white head. Aroma is predominantly sour with some malt. Taste is tart and sour lemons and grapes with a cheddar cheese quality in the aftertaste. A little funk like a farmhouse. Thick mouthfeel with good carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (1083) - Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2013
A murky butterscotch color with a small head and decent lacing. Tart aroma with some caramel malt and grapes. Taste is highly tart with some lemons and grapes. Oaky character mid palate with a hint of spiciness and funk. Mouthfeel is creamy and medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice sour beer that is really sour but well blended with nice flavors. Could have used more rye.

jahshuwuh (567) - USA - MAY 24, 2013
Almost an orange soda color with just a touch of brown. A sour fruit smell, tart, peach, pear, cherry, brown sugar, rye. A pretty good tart kick initially that gives way to a candy sweetness briefly then on to more tartness/sour. I don't get much of the barrel, lemon and cherry mostly. It's hard to wade through the sour to pick up much else. I wanted to like this more, but the sours were just too dominating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

abemorsten (3591) - Mostery, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
750 ml bottle kindly shared by my beer pal, Ole Anders. Hazy orange body with a white rim. Sour butterscotch on the nose. Vinegary crisp and sour grapefruit. Medium to full bodied and wonderfully pleasant to drink. Most enjoyable finish.

Bov (12277) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2013
courtesy of Philipp Sigg - clear reddish-amber beer, decently sourish aroma of cherries and vinegar, some herbal tones too; moderate carbonation, full-bpodied, a fair sourness, a long lingering cherry-ish and vinegar-like finish with notes of mint - excellent

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours orange with a 1 finger bright white ring. The aroma has notes of brett, rye, malt, caramel, and wood and is super tart, funky and vinegary. Taste is very tart but nothing like the nose, drinkable with nice fruity notes. I really like the balance of flavors in this beer and it is incredibly drinkable! funky sock acidity and caramel just a hint of rye spiciness. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. This baby is sour. Some spiciness from the rye. Dry and smooth citric finish.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Tasty beer with a surprisingly bold sourness. Prickly carbonation up front; smoother toward the finish; and a bit sticky in the aftertaste. Fatty texture. Spicy, grainy malts. Rich sourness with notes of cherries, wood and vanilla. Really satiates my sour beer craving.

jnkor (364) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Sour sweet and inviting aroma. Nice dark red/brown color with white head. Taste is sour and full. Boozy with some malt. Very filling. Palate is zesty and full with plenty of sour pucker but no over powering. Well balanced.

2013 bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is a strong tart and sour fruit and oak. Medium mouthfeel with lots of sourness up front with sour cherry and vinegar. Easy to drink a very impressive sour. Really enjoyed this one.
