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.

On draught. Pours an orange hue with a nice head that disappears rapidly. Aroma is sour fruit and big vinegar and some mild spices. Flavors are sour, then sour, followed by sour; afterwards there is some sour fruit and some funk and finally a very nice spice/pepper and dirt taste/feeling on the tongue and throat. This is pretty close to what I would want as far as mouthfeel; it is a tad bit heavy especially when it warms and has limited carbonation which would help. Overall, a very good sour/wild ale that I will seek out often!

Aroma is dominated by acid and fruitiness. Good lactic character with a hint of acetic acid. Nice fruitiness as well with notes of cherries, berries and a hint of tropical fruit. Faint malt backbone. Pours a cloudy copper with hints of orange and red. Head is white and pillowy but recedes fairly quickly leaving a small film on the edges. Flavor starts with a hint of rye character before the acidity takes over. Once agin mostly lactic with only faint acetic undertones. Acidity brings in a lot of fruitiness in the form of cherries and berries. The finish is dry with tart cherries and berries. The acetic acid is a bit more noticeable in the finish but still mellow and I dont feel it detracts from the beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Could possibly use a bit more carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall a very nice American Wild Ale from a brewery that is doing the style increasingly well. Nice fruit notes to the beer and the acidity is clean and crisp. Fresh and not muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Emeister84 (2274) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Vintage 2013. Aromas of cherry, crabapples, tamarind, mild toast, and subtle vinagar. Hazy orange with a mostly lasting, off-white head. Dry, tart, sour, and fruity, with mild rye upfront, followed by flavors of tangerine, white grapes, and apricot. Light-medium bodied with refreshing carbonation and a dry, clean, tart, fruity finish.

Arayaga2 (2157) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Headless brown. Aroma and taste are bracingly sour. Unexpectedly like an acid rather than a beer and the cherry notes are like a concentrate. $4/10 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First sour brew that Ive partaken. Luckily, my friend randomly purchased this $35 bottle without knowledge. It is excellent & truly unique. I will try others down the road.

jandd1983 (4017) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma was of red wine and a fair amount of sour fruits. The taste was smooth and a bit tart and was on the spot as far as sours go. Very tasty.

Smells tart, sour, and spicey. Very sour taste. Strong flavor from the wine barrels as well. This beer is super tart. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
