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!

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Scott! Dingy tangerine, opaque and cloudy, fizzly head that crackles and flees. Aroma is pungent orange and apricot, fleshy, gushing and fruit, tart, some lactic acid, touch of oak and cotton-y funk. Mild alcohol presence. Taste is fruity with a meld of booziness. Some apricot, orange, and sprucy peach. Slight touch of dry cotton funk. Floral hints. Warmth in the back end. Crackly, snapping mouth feel, medium bodied.

Update: Another bottle thanks to Kevin. Same Project year as the previous rate (2011, I believe). This beer is getting better... Unless it’s just bottle variation. More fruit, a little more tartness, a touch more funk, & smoother overall with less of a commanding, boozy presence.

Bottle at What The Funk. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is apricot, tangerine, peach, sugar candy. Thin mouth, nice tartness, spice from the rum, tangerine and apricot, hides alcohol well, very nice.

ben4321 (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2015
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andy’s Tasting, 2/28/15, Rating #4400!

Aroma: This one has a funky/tart and fruity aroma to it
Appearance: It pours a murky orange color, with a small fizzy head
Flavor: It has a pretty similar flavor, nicely sour, with a tart finish to it
Palate: The mouthfeel is pretty good, medium bodied, with a somewhat tart finish
Overall Impression: This one makes sense as a milestone beer, as it was rather enjoyable. One of the best things I ticked at this tasting for sure.

Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tangerine, orange, peach, some slight vanilla and rum character but its pretty fruit forward, some tart lacto, some spicy notes as well. Taste is a mix of rum, vanilla and oak with some cinnamon notes into a bit of peach, nectarine, tangerine, orange, and grapefruit, some tart lemony notes, finishing tart, slightly sweet.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours tarnished orange, nice waft of apricot, pit fruits, sweet lemon custard. Flavor starts with fruit elements, and citric acid, though tartness is subdued. Drinks with superb balance, big full fruit notes both sweet and tart, bits of oak and strawberry, finishing notes lingering for some time. Nice bold balance here, I’m sure this is going to be a real winner with some years on it!!
