one of the best beers in this series, and definitely one of the best, if not the single best, use of lime i have encountered in a beer. this is remarkable stuff, shared a few ways, i was fortunate enough to get three or four ounces of this magical fluid. dark red in color, smelling like fresh key limes and dark rum. notes of molasses, coconut, sharp citrus, spicy ginger, and oak, with an intense lacto sour profile, its all there, right where they say it should be. the flavor is even more impressive than the smell. lime is so pungent, especially in the finish, just fresh as hell, and really zesty and bright. the ginger is in the middle, mild but the real deal, and the rum barrel has an enormous tropical island input here. its pretty sour too, lacto mostly but some brett too, dry for how complex it is, and although i dont taste much grain, i like the medium malt body on it, lets the flavors hang around awhile. the lime is my favorite part, its so limey, so cool. more interesting and better executed than the last several of these i think, this may be my favorite since floris. a must try for sour fans, rum fans, avery fans, curious palates, and soon to be whale hunters.
