COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This easy drinking NW style sour ale was aged in rum barrels for 20 months with tangerine zest, then blended with our Apricot Ale. Sweet aromas of tangerine and rum are the first thing you notice as you draw your glass near. A quenching sweet citrus, then rum spice take turns dancing on your palate. Rich rum spice and warmth lead to a lingering sweet tangerine finish like warn sand. Most rum beers only go to 10, ours goes to 11!

Aroma: Tangerine, sweet tart, funk.

Taste: Sweet tarts,cactus cooler, slight bitterness, some oak tannins, and spicy funky finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a touch chalky, modest carbonation.
