PartyFowle (634) - - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Deep maroon, opaque but fading to lighter orange at the edges. Hardly any head. Molasses, butterscotch, rum, plum and balsamic in the nose. Very oaky. The flavor is akin to a good Flemish red spiked with funky Jamaican rum. Balsamic and cherry blend with sugar cane and oaky vanilla and butterscotch. Smooth bitterness on the sides of the tongue is almost offset with caramel sweetness. Wood rolls in in a big way at the swallow. Medium body; moderate massaging carbonation; no noticeable alcohol. A good beer, but not wildly different from your average Flemish Red.

brokensail (13270) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle @ home. Copper colored pour with a small khaki head. Smells like orange, cola, and a slight acetic quality. Some oak, peach, and apple. Not bad. Kind of fruity. The flavor is a little on the sweet side. Lots of cola. Some peach, orange zest, and grapes. Eh, itís okay I guess.

Reynolds314 (2833) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Sugar and balsamic dominate. Tons of rum boozy sweetness and vinegar sharp tartness. These sours are losing me sometimes.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Tasted on 11/16/13 from a capped 12oz bottle at our Avery Barrel-Aged tasting. Pours clear fiery orange with a thin white head that leaves a nice collar. The nose is sour and funky with caramel malt that ties into the rum barrel sweetness nicely. The flavor is very sweet and sour with the caramel and rum balancing the lemon acidity, and plenty of funk. The body is full and sticky with light carbonation and a long sour and sweet rum finish.

Lukaduke (2689) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours a rusty brownish red color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is musty, a bit of balsamic, vinous fruit and spicy booze. Palate follows with lots of composted fruit, spicy rum notes and layers of vinegar, sweet tarts, some vinous acidity. Something Im not digging, starts out candy sweet finishes with some aggressive booze.

BiiruBierBeer (605) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Good sour smell to it. Sour bretty taste but not quite geuzey. Itís solid, but nothing special.
