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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Clear dark golden.... nice white head... good lacing and retention.

Nose is pretty damn citrus sour.... kumquats are loud and proud.

Flavor has the same big kumquat presence... citric and pithy... lactic and unapologetic.. liquid sweet tarts... juicy citrus .... for my humble palate, the sour notes destroy any rye perceptions that I might have.

Light/medium body... good carbonation.... very puckery and sour, still pretty refreshing though a 750 is plenty between 5 dudes.

All 3.75's.
