Cloudy brown beer, thin white head. Crispy dry palate. Sour - bordering on vinegary. Duchesse Du Bourgogne like tart fruit. A little rye spice and a whisper of oak. Finishes sour and dry. Okay.
In short: A surprisingly drinkable and not-too-sour semi-farmhouse ale with a nice fruity-apricots flavor. Excellent.Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2012
How: Bottle 750ml. 2011 vintage, so probably around 1 year of age, split three-way. Bottle sent to me by kegbear, thanks a lot Craig.
The look: Cloudy dark orange body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is surprisingly fruity with bright apricots, musty notes, pleasant farmhouse character. Taste is surprising, upfront there is a lot of fresh juicy apricots although this beer supposedly does not use fruits, some peaches, a malt backbone that really felt like cookies, plenty of virgin oak, medium rye presence, sawdust, nice semi-wild sensation that feels more pedio than bretty, moderate lactic acid sensation, sour level is pretty low for the style. This was surprisingly drinkable for the style, this beer is as ‘sessionnable’ as a Sour Ale can be. Bruery beers are often so-so but once in a while I stumble on a little gem like this Sour in the Rye, so as the old saying goes: you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince (or become sexually attracted to frogs and your family forces you to seek professional help).
750 ml bottle thanks to BlackIPA. Pours a hazy caramel color. The aroma has lemons, cheesy funk , sweet and spicy. Some vanilla is noticeable and it’s a little harsh. The taste has vinegar, fruit, and lemons. Another Bruery sour and it’s another vinegar bomb. WTF is up with they’re sours and how does nobody not know better. The Bruery should get in the salad dressing business as well. My review may even be too nice. smith4498 (3646) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2012

Bottled. An unclear dark amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, rye, malt, caramel, and wood. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of wood, brettanomyces, malt, caramel, and wood, leading to a dry and tart finish. JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
