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.

A: poured into an oversize wine glass to a deep brown with two fingers of dense off white head that fades quickly but leaves some lacing
S: smells of rye, wood, funk, lactic acid, and kumquats
T: taste is very tart with lactic and acetic sourness, very citrusy with some funk and kumquat, slight woodyness with a faint sweetness. swallow is a lingering sourness and kumquat with a little funk.
M: moderate amount of heft with soft carbonation and a drying finish from the acidity
O: An incredible beer. Great flavors and complexity that's a pleasure to drink. Truly an amazing beer.
