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.

Bottled on November 1st, 2013 - Served at 45 degrees F in Bruery tulip glass.

A - Cloudy red/orange body with ~1.5" off white head.

S - Very sour, cherries, white wine

T - Tart cherries, grapes, slight oak & rye - sweet finish.

M - Champagne bubbles - lots of tingle

O - Good sour, but not my favorite from the Bruery. I think I should have kept this in the cellar a bit longer to let the tartness mellow and the other flavors develop. Prost!
