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 shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! The beer appears slightly hazy and dark orange in color, with an off white head that leaves sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma brings a heavy dose of yeast and bugs. Hooray! Who doesnt love yeast and bugs? The flavor is reminiscent of a Flanders Oud Bruin. Nice lactic and acetic notes. This beer is proud to be sour and I love it. Oak, tart fruits, light vinegar, wild yeast. Nicely done. The body is light to medium, with moderately low carbonation. The beer hits you with a big acetic kick in the finish. Smack! Overall, I really enjoyed this. Any time I have the opportunity to try a new sour / wild ale, its pretty exciting. This one delivered.

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Well and tart. Lots of citric bite. Pleasant brett and fruit notes, backed by tangy rye. Long in the finish with some nice sweetness to steady the intense sourness.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to jp7161 for the 1st bottle / thanks to mathieuc for sharing a bottle of this! Slightly hazy bright golden/copper with a small off-white head that leave a thin ring of foam. Aroma of brett, acetic presence, fruits, wood and spices. Taste of fruity sourness, wood, acetic presence, spices and brettanomyces. Some citric notes too. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A tad mouth puckering. Dry finish. Very good Sour. Balance is ok/good, especially for a Bruery sour. Tasty. Better than Kumquats version I think

Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured deep, amberish-brown with little to no head. Tart aroma. This had a nice body and nice spiced quality. Probably of which the Rye affected. Barrel and oak tones with herbs and sweetness and nice, balanced sourness.

Bottle on my balcony wth John, Eddie, and Ryan. Pour is deep, hazy, copper with a small off-white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is oak, dark cherries, peaches, sour grain, tannin, and light vanilla. Really a lot going on in the nose. Taste is very sour with flavors of light rye, tart apricots, light vinegar, green apples, and funk with a lingering sour finish. Mouthfeel is somewhat sticky with light carbonation. Very complex sour with a lot going on in the nose and taste, just another great beer from The Bruery. Well done.

Apricot and sour cherry aromas, spicy notes. Nice, moderate body like a geuze. Tasty, tasty, tasty. Slight citrus and spiciness, sweet without being heavy?
