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.

750 capped from Malt and Vine. Pours hazy orange amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is tart/sour red berry. Med body. Flavor is tart/sour red berry - maybe even cherry, though I swear the barrel must have had cab in it. Theres a periodic burst of sweet fruit, then back to oaky astringency, red berry and tart/sour - which is how it finishes. Excellent.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy orange pour with medium white head, wine like aroma, big sour lip puckering taste with grapes and some woody notes.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Its weird that this once seemed so impossible to find, and now its on the shelves at Total Wine. Id buy it frequently, except its 20 bucks. Damn tasty though, a refreshing sour with some nice grainy spice qualities that make it stand out a bit from the crowd. Nice lemony spritziness makes this one even better than I remembered.

On tap @ Acre, Chicago. Hazy amber color. Thin head that quickly dissipates. Sweet vinegar/ketchup aroma. Grassy/funky nose as well. Light, cleansing palate, minimal carbonation. Sourness channels through center of tongue and hits in the jaw. Lingering aftertaste. We were eating something fried, and this cut right through the dishs heaviness--nice pairing.

Version 2013. Une bire ambre ou cuivre, cest selon. Une tte mousseuse de bire sre : belle pour les premires 20 secondes. Un nez capable de crer un petit choc invitant : des choses intressantes comme des parfums boiss, des fruits vraiment aigres, un bouquet poivr et des armes plus ou moins surets. Les papilles ne sont pas en reste. Elles aiment ce jus aigre de pches, de citrons et de pommes. Elles sont aussi bien contentes dtre touches par des microbes et par des touches boises. Elles apprcient les malts qui viennent lgrement contrler et assaisonner le tout. En bouche, le corps est de moyenne densit. Les bulles sont poses et la texture huileuse augmente le plaisir prouv. La finale nest pas trop puissante. Elle est complte, acide, astringente, aigre et laisse une empreinte fruite indlbile. Cette bire est une bombe de bon vin aigre. Certainement facile boire.

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 (1102) - 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

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.
