I was lucky enough to try this on my recent vacation. Bottle said 2015 so I assume this was one of the more recent releases based on product description. Smells fruity, tastes amazing - tart but not super sour, doesn't linger - highly recommended.

7500ml corked/caged bottle served in a small Kirin glass. 2015 bottle.

Pours slightly hazy with almost no head and very little carbonation. Smell is tart and mango-y (I'm a little surprised I'm calling it mango even though the bottle says tangerine). Some booze and vanilla and wood.

Taste is very tart, vanilla and wood and booze, more tangerine than mango now.

Mouthfeel is flattish and a little oily. Overall, it's tasty and I like it.

Where did I have this? Might have been the Bruery anniversary party? Either way, glad I had it without having to buy a $30 bottle. Pours a deep burnt orange, good tan like head 1/3" that quickly disappears. Aroma of rum, tangerine and apricot. Big lactic feels.

Those lactic feels continue on, this is a nice layered beer, some citrus (well not some, there is a lot) in here in the form of tangerine and apricot skins and fruit. Cascade does a great job as usual in taking a high abv beer and making it very sour and easy to drink relative to its high abv. A pretty neat beer, I don't think its worth the price tag, but I would gladly take a pour of it anytime. But if you're looking for a rum and citrus sour kick, this one is on point for your desires.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Aroma has honey, fruity and floral notes. Taste is tart, acidic, citrusy with a light vinegar note. Quite harsh on the palate.

Really good. The rum comes through clearly but doesn't dominate. Tangerine is a nice balance. Moderately sour, low carbonation level. The interplay of the tart tangerine with the heavy rum is very nice, bringing a lovely complexity that keeps me coming back for more. Cascade does these beers so well.

Glowing orange-amber with a moderate white froth.

A little spicy oak, vanilla, and tangerine perfume the nose.

Tastes pretty strongly sour, but also earthy, with really strong peach, nectarine, and grapefruit.

Slick but dry.

A: Super deep orange color, clear, with a thin white head that quickly creates a film across the glass with very light lacing.
T: Tangerine, fruit flavors, soft toasted malt, followed by light bourbon and a light lingering sourness.

A: Moderate tangerine aroma with complex esters, light vanilla and bourbon, followed by a light lingering sourness.

M: Medium bodied, with moderately light carbonation. The beer hides its high alcohol well.

O: Very tasty; the beer's additions of tangerine and vanilla, complement the base beer and the lingering sourness contrasts well.
