look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange amber body. Small fleeting white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Rum barrel is strong. Oak. Vanilla. Mild acidity. Smells kinda musty.

Taste - Rum is still strong, but it's got a lot more sourness going on. Kinda vinegary. Some grainy toast and caramel malt. Sharp rum aftertaste and some oak.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Medium heavy.

Overall - Intense flavors. It's overly intense in certain respects, but good.

Pours brownish red with thin head that quickly dissipates. Semi translucent. Smells like tart cherries, apple cider vinegar, damp wood hints of vanilla and molasses. Taste mostly follows the nose-- tart cherries lactic acid, vinegar, oak, caramel, molasses, vanilla, a hint of spice and something incredibly reminiscent of a candy apple.

I can't believe this is 10.5%. I thought I felt a little more of an alcohol burn on the back than usual for a sour, but 10.5%?? While there is something sweet and sticky about this brew, there is searing acidity and the carbonation is key and offers a beautiful prickly sensation to balance it all out and making it super drinkable.

I think this beer is really well done and I am enjoying it immensely. I wish I had picked up another bottle when I went to the brewery...

My 500th beer on Beeradvocate. Granted some of them were ticks (ok most) but Im trying to be better about rating when I can and doing less ticking.

Beer Ive been saving for a year. Amber and hazy gets darker at the edges. Thin lacy head.

Smell is soured grapes and cherries. Light red fruits lotta fruity sweetness comes across like natural candy.

Taste is a nice balance of light sourness with a light malt. Very delicate, not too overwhelming. Definitely get the oak at the end.

Excellent beer.
