4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours hazy and amber with a small, creamy head. Good retention. The nose is super fruity - prickly pear and stone fruits - with a light note of woody funk. The flavor is also fruity, but sour as well, offering tons of prickly pears and hints of watermelon and cucumber. Tart, fruity finish. World class beer provided by landhoney!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Faint mineral and sour smell to it. Very strange but kind of good taste that has notes of mineral water, fruit, and a planty (cucumber?) sort of taste to it that is kind of refreshing.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with no head. Aroma of funk, tart fruit and peppery yeast. Malty flavor with tropical fruit accents before a sour finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, big thanks to Eric. Pours moderately hazy, burnt, copper orange with rapidly dissipating white head. Negligible lacing. Aroma is moderately tart, funky, mildly vegetal, big oak and tequila. Flavor is mildly tart, sweet prickly pear, fading into tart, tequila, fruity, lime finish. Lingering oaky, buttery, tequila and mildly tart aftertaste. Prickly pear has mellowed, better balanced than when it was initially released. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, smooth texture, and lightly dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from cocoapuph - thanks man! Pours cloudy orange amber with a small white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is very oaky, some funk, citrus (lemon), perhaps tequila I guess. Definitely a bit of a different take on a sour. Flavor is medium tart, light plus funky, drying, lemon zest, basement must, oak tannins, some nondescript fruitiness. Medium body, decent carbonation. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of pear skins, followed by intense tequila barrels. Flavour is heavy on the tequila barrels, way too much for me, followed by pear skins and subtle dry tartness. Tequila barrels really put me off, but I suppose they are used pretty well here. Cohesive and pleasant, I’m just not a fan of tequila.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared during the Central Jersey BA gathering. Poured a honey brown body with a smaller to average sized foamy samller head. Aroma is weird, celery, syrupy, touch of sourness, bad honey, agavae, prickly pear juice. Flavor is the same as the aroma but a touch more juiciness from the prickly pear. Body is medium with average carbonation and a lingering odd aftertaste. Interesting stuff, very different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pour is lightly hazed copper with a white head. Nose is fruited, pear is light, hint of kiwi, sweeter, faint tequila and grain notes. Taste is fruitier, tequila is faint. Pear comes through more in the back with a moderate tartness. High carb and light body.
