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!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2013
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 its just bottle variation. More fruit, a little more tartness, a touch more funk, & smoother overall with less of a commanding, boozy presence.

Bottle shared courtesy of Mark-sama (you rock!). 5 year aged. Lovely heady nose, wine texture, loads of tangerine, marmalade with a tart edge, followed by deep and complex notes of spiced rum, oak, apricot, more tart on the finish. Definitely up their with top-notch vintage wines, now I get why that brewery is so special.

KyotoLefty (9645) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle. 2011 batch. Spicy nose, oranges, rum, a bit of vinegar. Huge, complex, lovely. Flavor of tangerines, biscuits, chocolate, wine, spicy. Rum notes are amazing. Great fruit depths. Wow, this is lovely stuff. Has aged very well and seems better than people have found it in the past. Much less sour than the typical Casade, and so balanced and complex.

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 (6023) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2015
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andys 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.
