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.

dfearnley (2050) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle to tulip Consummation: Sour peach, cherry, lemon peel, and a hint of something sweet, akin to honey, but no quite. Adjunct: Sour peach/lemon/apple aroma with vanilla; peachy orange colour with a thin creamy tan head and lots of effervescence; medium bodied and approaching puckering sourness

Pours nice copper, some foam but not too much. Aroma is truly sour, intense and raw apple wine-like. Taste is intensely sour, you get beeswax and a bit of honey. I dig the aftertaste but it takes time to get used with the sourness. Great berries, apple juice sourness working miracles.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy peachy color ale with a nice large foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of lactic acid notes with quite a bit of vinegar and some oak notes is OKish. Taste is mostly dominated by loads of vinegary notes with some oak and a high-level of acid notes. Body is full for style with good carbonation. I dont get what the fuss is with this beer. I thought it was really one-dimensional and acidity level wad too high for my liking.

Palme (4667) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2016
0.75l bottle from Whole Foods Market Tribeca enjoyed at our hotel room. This is a lovely blurry glowing peach orange one with a small light off-white top. It has a sour and fruity aroma with sour peaches, some lemon and lemon zest, some paint thinner, really bretty and there is perhaps a swiff of dark burned rye bread in here. It smells really nice thats for sure. Nice flavors and the rye is more present here. Lots of sour fruits like sour peaches, grapefruit, picketed lemons and tart wood. The mouthfeel is light oily and it has a average carbonation level. Fantastic refreshing. Shouldnt, but I think I will finish this bottle here and now before lunch.. 23.06.2013

robinvboyer (4491) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
Cloudy brown pour, huge beige head. Incredible funky, lactose, fruity Aroma. The sour is strong. Lovely mouth feel, soft carb. The finish is incredibly fruity, especially cherry, and apples, with some woody, earthy barrel. As it warms the sourness gets more pungent and strong. Incredible wild ale.

SinH4 (4584) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle, thanks sebilinz! Cloudy amber color with tan head. Aroma is peach, stone, dirty (even reminds me of some Schaerbeekse stuff), spicy. Nice hints of sweetness, good sour punch, pucking finish. Medium carbonation. Better than expected.

2015 Bottle shared. Thanks Eric! Big gooseberry and tart cherry notes dominate the nose. Some earthiness comes out as it warms. Some sherry like creamy vanilla feel on the palate with some light peppery rye notes. The rye feels quite muted though. Quite tart, but still pretty enjoyable.
