Notes: We've all come to know and love our barrel-aged sour rye ale, Sour in the Rye. Now it's time to enjoy a bright variation of it that has kumquats added to the mix. Not only is "kumquat" one of the most fun fruit names to roll off the tongue, it also treats the entire palate to a unique display of fruity characteristics. The tart, sweet, citrus and tropical notes of both the kumquats and tangerine zest strike a balance with the honey, vanilla and woody character imparted from barrel-aging. At the same time, the unique bitterness of the citrus fruit locks step with the clove and pepper notes imparted from the rye.

Poured from a 1 pint 9.4 oz. bottle into a Snorkel glass.

Appearance: Dark amber body, thin cap of head.

Aroma: Bright citrus, with that sour aroma coming through!

Taste: Pucker up buttercup! That sourness just mellowed out with the kumquat-citrusness, a hint of oak. Perfect.

Mouthfeel: Bracingly sour.

Overall: A delicious sour that is even better than I imagined. So tart and sour with a ton of citrus coming through.

This is a very very good beer. I have traded for a bunch of this after having it for the first time. The Kumquats actually pull through on this beer and makes a big difference from the regular Sour in the Rye which is also a great beer. However the regular Sour in the Rye is not as good as this beer. Perfect amount of sour and fruit. You do still get some of the wood finish as well which is a must for me and a sour.
