Notes / Commercial Description:
We brewed this ale with around 40% rye as a base malt and let our sour yeast and bacteria eat away at it in oak barrels for over a year creating a sour ale with a complex character of rye spice, oak and a subtle funk.

Pours a miller light golden brown, honey color if I may. Tastes like warheads were put in a bag of water overnight

On tap. It is a big punch sour for sure. But it didn't go vinegar for me. Just a ton of pucker sour. I couldn't do more than one for sure, and sours aren't my jam, but this is an excellent example from a top notch brewery
