Notes/Commercial Description:
We've all come to know and love our 40% rye malt, barrel aged sour ale, Sour in the Rye. Now it's time to enjoy that very same beer, but with fresh kumquats added to the mix. This fruited sour reveals incredible notes of both bitterness from the citrus rind as well as an unmistakable tropical sweetness from macerating the entire fruit and adding it to barrels.

Another rudzud split.

Decent foamy slight creamy 1/2 finger head that fades pretty quickly, murky dark mahogany brownish honey red color.

Nose nice stone fruit and kumquat, cross between citrus and apricot like fruit, strange Brazilian like fruit, little sweet candy malt bit syrupy, bit of Jack fruit too, big kumquat juicy, some tartness and sour fruit like, juicy mild bitterness.

Taste stats with sour fruit, fairly tart but not overly, sweet candy malt base, juicy fruit again cross between citrus like Clementine and stone like apricot fruit, must be the kumquat, sour sweet candy sour patch kids flavor, little brown sugar candy, touch sticky sweet brown malt, and just a touch of barrel. Finish is sticky sweet, little flemmy sour malt, light acid, more of the kumquat fruit, light mango juice.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, decent carb, little sticky and flemmy.

Overall not bad but nothing too special, fruit is great but overpowers at the same time.
