Brewed by:
Perennial Artisan Ales
Missouri, United States

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rye Ale fermented on local blackberries. Another music-inspired beer, Barry Rye is the latest addition to the Perennial playlist. It’s very balanced, with notes of rye spiciness and blackberry juiciness – kind of like some of Barry’s soul hits from the 70s.

Served on tap at whole foods. Pours deep brown with a purple hue. Tan head with nice retention and tons of lacing. Smell starts with berry skin, followed by a dash of spicy rye. Bright fruity notes up front with tartness to follow. Taste starts with blackberry which is moderate and doesn't overtake the beer. Rye malt comes on and balances the fruit very nicely an the alcohol is well hidden. Accents of vanilla envelope the berry character. A nice tartness comes through at the end and leaves a nice exclamation on the flavor. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and medium. Overall, solid brew an worth a try!
