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.

4/25/13. 750mL bottle thanks to nulledge (also tasted at CBC). Hazy golden pour with a nice khaki head. Spiced cream aroma with wood, wine, sour sweet tarts, and grapes. Very tart flavor, more chalky sour sweet tarts, lingering sour acidity, wood, and vanilla. Finishes quite dry. Tasty!

750---->globe. Pours an orangeish amber with a small, quickly dissipating head and no lace. Aroma is funky grapes and apples. Taste is super sour acidic grapes and a touch of peppery spice. Medium mouthfeel with very little carbonation. A top notch sour in every sense.

An aroma that starts out good and ends up top notch. A good strong sour and peppery bite. This is what I was looking for! The funk is strong and grainy and escellent. Absolutely loved it. First time I was blown away here.

Simply incredible. One of the best sours Ive ever had, and easily the best American sour. Perfect balance of tartness and spice for a truly unique, refreshing drinking experience.

10oz draft pour. Poured a slightly cloudy orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma is real tart notes, some light sugar notes, spice, oak notes. Flavor is a nice, extremely start tart character to start with, some vinegar type notes. Malts, oak notes, lactic character throughout the brew. Tons of puckering notes. Friends and bartender didnt seem to care for it at all - Ill just have some more then. Very good.

Bottle shared by browncar while brewing up a new Belgian Ale this past week, thanks Eric! Pours a nice dark gold with a thick head and lacing in the glass, the aroma has a nice amount of tartness with a little bit of spice and pepper as well, the flavor has a huge tart and sour front end with the barrels coming through in the finish with a good amount of dryness, let this one sit for awhile and around room temp it hit its perfect point, good amount of tartness with the wine tannins coming through, really good stuff.

HUGE thanks to Bman1113vr for this one, it was a treat. 2012 bottle. Murky orange pour with a white head. Nose is barnyard, blue cheese, pepper, tons of funk! the pepper from the rye is a nice touch, as are the tannins and sourness. Faint bit of fruity pebbles. Flavor is funk, tartness, HUGE amounts of tartness. Big time dryness, mouth wateringly so. In a night with White Chocolate, Black Tuesday, Oude Tart, and Hottenroth, this is the beer that kept me coming back for more. And more. And more. Increible!

Its really good but not too accessible. I mean, its really well crafted. Its really tart and comes through with a punch of smoke, coming from the oak I presume.
