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.

Awesome offering from the Bruery- pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with no head,retention. Nice color.

Smells lovely- tart and spicy. Definitely some funk, a little grapefruit, a little bready/rye.

Tastes very strong nice- acutely tart and spicy from the rye. They clearly used a lot of it in the mash. Some sweetness in the mix as well- a little like banana bread but that's in the background.

Mouthfeel is nice- medium body with moderate carbonation. Killer sour beer, especially if you're like me and love rye.
