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.

Bottle care of big Thom. Split with Sean, Janine, and Thom. Pours translucent chestnut with a thin, wispy tan head. No lace. Aroma of lemon, ripe strawberries, & blueberry cotton candy. Tastes very tart, with tropical fruit & blossoming flower notes. Pretty good. Reminds me a lot of LA Red Poppy. Cool brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013 vintage. Wow- huge smells of sour grapes, vinegar, lemon. More in the flavor, too- spice, tart citrus, vinegar, funk. Interesting how the spicy rye plays against the sour/ tart notes. Very good!
