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 - Pours a hazy light brown with a large soapy light tan head that moves to the edges quickly.

S - Tart, Lots of rye and citrus, boozy on the nose. Almost like a rye whiskey.

T - Lots of citrus-kumquat with a big rye-booze finish.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - Tart and citrusy with a big rye finish.

A-Cloudy deep orange, one finger head that tries to leave behind some lacing.

S-Funk, oak, rye, grass, rather citrusy.

T-Amazing balance. Starts rather sour with oak and grass notes. Then some rye. And finally waves of citrus finish it out.

M-Medium bodied, well carbonated, crisp dry finish.

O-SitR was a great beer already, adding the kumquats gave it a nice citrus finish, allowing for perfect balance. An amazing beer. Huge thanks for offing up unused allocations.
