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.

Sampled from a 750ml bottle in a Duvel glass.

A deep golden to light amber color with good clarity and a moderate white head. Aroma is fruity and a bit funky. A nice sour/tart backbone but with a decent balance from supporting flavors. Moderate consistency and carbonation with a good pucker factor.

A very tasty beer. A little harsh compared with Belgian sours but very nice.
