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.

Tasted 2012 reserve. Beautiful orange color with good clarity with slight head. Prominent sweettart flavor with woody finish. Fruit showing through reminiscent of kiwi and lemon flavors.
