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.

I had this back to back with Sour in the Rye and it seemed that this was a very different beer. Age and a batch from a different year may have made all the difference but it has a more pink grapefruit like color. The nose was sweet, sour and tart citrus fruit but there was more of a minerally acidic aroma. The flavor was more earthy, minerally and orangier than Sour in the Rye. It felt about the same. Very good beer but I liked the Sour a bit better.
