541. The Bruery Sour in the Rye

Bruery Sour in the RyePicked this beer up on a recent trip to Vermont as it is not distributed in Maine. I have not had much from The Bruery but heard good things about this one so figured I would give it a shot.

Appearance is a nice cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is sour lemons and apple, not very funky which for some reason I thought it would be. Taste follows with a very tart lemon / apple to start and finishes with a nice rye sweetness.

This beer did not disappoint and was perfect as an afternoon sipper.

Brewers 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.
