Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
We brewed this ale with around 40% rye as a base malt and let our sour yeast and bacteria eat away at it in oak barrels for over a year creating a sour ale with a complex character of rye spice, oak and a subtle funk.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a hazy brownish orange with a small (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that receded down to a very small collar with super light spotty lacing.

The aroma was of grain and bread malts and a funky cheesy yeast with a note of fruit (apple, cherry and apricot), a light spiciness, a mild vinous scent, a hint of oak and a definite tartness.

The taste started off sour and acetic with a light wine presence which lasted throughout with the finish mellowing slightly, having a mildly sweet fruity taste along with a light spiciness towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long time following the swallow, with the bold sourness giving way to a mildly sweet-tart fruity taste that lingered on the taste buds for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and dry in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

Overall this was a very tasty and enjoyable brew that possessed a nice tart flavor which blended so well with the fruity spicy taste, that it allowed for a smooth and easy drinkability. I have to say that there is no surprise here, just another exceptional beer from this brewer...
