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.

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.

Scipio (869) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours a bright, hazy, ruby color with a more thin white head. The aroma is extremely sour and tart, acidic, with lots of elements of cherry, apple, and grape. The taste is all tartness and sour. Flavors of cherry and grape are strong. Taste doesnt pull any punches here. Medium bodied with a more thick texture. Some mild yet bubbly carbonation here. I find this one simply amazing. Of course, if you arent a fan of sours, this probably wont appeal to you. However, if you do like these, you wont find much thats better than this.

Aroma is acidic/vinegar with some fruity and ester notes flavor is very acidic with some sweetness, vinegar, fruit that leaves a lasting sour sweetness. Mouthfeel is oily/silky and sour with creamy above average carbonation. Overall this is a delicious beet.

Very cloudy peachy amber with one finger frothy light khaki head. Very acidic nose (acetic). Lots of fruity esters. Light fruity sweetness (perceptual, not actually sweet) in the flavor. Intensely acidic/sour. Lasting acidity on the finish. A bruising sour.
