Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.60%

Availability: Rotating

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.

2013. Aged extremely well. Amazing nose. Very well balanced. Tartness is on point.

Unbelievable sour. The kumquats are VERY present, you get citrus peel from beginning to end along with a bit of understated oak. Definitely a lemon note along with the kumquat as well.
