No. 17. No map required. Here it is matey. A treasure trove of exotic flavors unearthed from a year-long burial in exquisite first run rum barrels. Arrr you ready for the pucker?

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.

Good sour smell to it. Sour bretty taste but not quite geuzey. It’s solid, but nothing special.

Very nice stuff. Amber pour with some apricot and bretta. Tart finish. Great package. Average carbonation. Wonderful balance. A touch of wood but well integrated. Thanks to Travlr for a taste of this. Bottle pour at Churchkey.

Bittle sample at Churchkey. Clear deep amber color, tan edge head. Lovely sour cherry, vanilla, tart berry aroma. Taste is softly sour pitted dark fruit, vanilla, brandy, port wine. Delicious.

mcberko (7443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a dark ruby red with a small beige head. Aroma brings out sour dark fruits, light vinegar, rum oak barrels, and wild yeasts -- highly complex stuff. Flavour is very puckering, with tart vinegary dark fruits, some light-to-moderate oak barrels, and a touch of rum. Quite vinegary and tart, but complex and still decently drinkable. Great stuff, just a bit too vinegary for me.

nuplastikk (4742) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2014
12oz bottle shared by Ben. Hazy copper-amber body. Zesty bold sour tones. The rum is a interesting combination with the Brett. Big and boozy, with a lasting sour aftertaste. Bold and rugged, very well done.

Vestlake (144) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma is dark fruit and sour. Taste is the same with the sour/tart up front. Overall pretty good.

zoucrew102 (659) - - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Dark fruit aroma with sour cherry notes and a hint of rum. Pours caramel colored with a little bit of a ruby tinge, as well as a thin off-white head and excellent lacing. Starts smooth with sweet dark fruit flavors. Finishes very vinous with red wine like flavors with cherry and just a hint of rum flavor. Excellent sour.

SrSilliGose (3277) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle big oops to adnielsen for the courtesy. Balsamic vinegar. Dirty imperial sour brown ale. Rum in check. Okay in small doses but a bit big and noodles.
