Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Bottled 5/30/14.

Pours a hazy dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with grain, ginger, lime, rum, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour lime, ginger, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is quite sour but tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.
