look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pale gold wax-capped 750mL bottle acquired through the Hoarders Society. Bottled 1/29/14. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours a hazy, almost completely opaque, orange hay color with some token pale bubbles that start at a finger and a half but quickly disappear. No retention. No lace.

Aromas are tart with oak, ginger, hay and just a hint of sugar.

Flavor is sour with an over arcing tartness. Luckily I allowed it to warm a bit before reviewing- the flavors open up quite nicely as the regrigerator's chill wears off. A nice toasted coconut flavor intermingled with rye, hay, oak, vague marmalade, ginger, faint vanilla, ocassional traces of bourbon, a hint of caramel and very little alcohol presence. The sour macaroon description from a previous review is pretty accurate.

Medium feel with a sharp pop on the tongue yet not exactly much in the way of carbonation. Tart wet hay, coconut milk, rye, barrel and a hint of sweetness in the aftertaste.

Less a Melange and more a Sour in the Rye remix. It retains most of SITR character with a pleasant twist of coconut and subtle ginger. Still an enjoyable brew. I don't know that I'll hold on to my last bottle much longer because I don't want it to lose the coconut that really makes this beer special.
