This special selection is made by adding fresh kumquats to The Bruery's Sour in the Rye, a barrel-aged sour ale made with 40% rye malt. The result is a remarkably tart, fruity, refreshing and well-balanced wild ale, with prominent aromas and flavors of orange peel, pineapple core, tart gooseberry, white bitter-melon rind and kumquats, of course. It's light- to medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a strong seam of bright acidity that carries through to the mouthwatering finish, alongside hints of bitter orange and peppery spice.
