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.

Listigovers (1023) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2017
Copper coloured beer without a head. Smells really funky and bacterial, also some rye. Flavour is quite sour and I get some pears, rye, pickles, a bit of sweetness to round it out but overall very sour. Huge beer that is fun to drink.

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 11, 2017
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is slightly fruity (maybe peach, stone fruit), a mild earthy funkiness. Taste is tart, dry (but a good amount of wet fruit notes in there), malty body, some earthy funk. A well-rounded sour (tart, fruity, funky) with great style / character. Very drinkable.

Pretty sour! Some fruity undertones but a straight forward sour. Great for a hot day.

Nice one. Good sourness, a bit of funk. You can feel rye texture a bit, but I would love to feel more. Generally great brew.

floydslip (367) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Slightly cloudy amber beer with a distinct orange hue and a thin, virtually non-existent, off-white head that disappears immediately. Sour, funky nose of rice wine vinegar, lemon juice, and heady spice. Flavor is quite sour dominated by a puckering lemony explosion in the mouth followed by layers of spice, including clove, cinnamon, and cardamon. Finishing with a slight bitterness that barely cuts through the sour funk, this is an interesting Belgian style sour ale, but the rye is essentially lost.
