Sour in the Rye with PEACHES!

Sour Rye ale with peaches added. Aged in oak barrels. Deliciously sour, bursting with spicy rye notes and hints of oak from the barrels it was aged within.

Final Rating: 4.56/5

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a Bruery snifter. Acquired as a generous extra in a trade with vitese. Thank you sir!

Appearance- Pours a very cloudy orange-yellow body with an effervescent white head that reduces quickly and leaves no lacing.

Smell- SUPER fruity and fresh, like walking through a fruit farm! Freshly squeezed peaches, watermelon, tropical fruits, sour apples, tart citrus, lactic, and some oak. Very inviting.

Taste- That’s what I’m talking about. Upfront is a huge punch of mouth-puckering sourness, like lemon juice, super sour lemonade, and unripe tart fruits. Next up is juicy peaches, plums, passion fruit. On the finish is a slight rye zing and vanilla presumably from the oak. Very nice.

Mouthfeel- Medium-light, refreshing body, medium carbonation.

Just like Oude Tart with cherries, the Bruery took one of their world-class sours and kicked it up a notch, elevating the taste and complexity which really makes this beer stand out. It may be hard to find, but seek it out of possible!
