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.

BIG THANKS to KevSal for hooking me up with this bottle!

A - pours an orangish brown with a soft white head sitting atop it

S - the aromas that burst out of the glass include sour lemons, what I presume to be kumquat, and a little bit of malt backbone

T - Very excited to try this...let's see where it goes. Starts off sweet, sugary, and tart lemon up front. The sourness is tamed by softer tangerine, and cumquat flavors. The sourness comes back full circle, finishing the beer off with lemon sourness mixed in with some light oak. Its sour, yet not overly so...really well balanced and softer than some of the enamel ripping sours out there.

M - the body is creamy, smooth, and full

D - This is a very approachable, sour. Soft, delicious. Sour, but not over the top. One of the better, more drinkable sours I have had.
