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. It’s a combination that’s hard to define (like a kumquat), but after you’ve had your first taste, you’ll be rewarded with tangy clarity.
