Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: womencantsail on 08-09-2009

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.

Poured from the big bottle into a perfect pint glass. My first taste of a Bruery product.

Pours dark copper with 1/8 inch white foam. Oaky notes, woody. Powerful sour flavor, from the very start. Puckering tart. Hints of the advertised rye. Profoundly sour from start to finish. Full of flavor. The oak really lends a great balance. Fantastic.
