Hazed yellow, white head. This is a cool beer. The tequila is a welcomed addition to the prickly pear. The fruity flavor comes off as a melon or tropical note. Perfect sourness. Really a treat.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2014
12oz bottle pours a hazy, burnt orange with some spitty, white head. Big pickle nose, pickled swiss chard, wood, fruit, but a lot of salt and herbs. Flavor is tart, boozy, heavy lime, cleaning fluid, candlewax. Just tartness to the face. Boozy finish too.

Salmoniform (648) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Aroma is lactic, fruity Brett, sugar, acetic, papaya. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium blight body and high carbonation. Taste is tart sourness throughout with a watermelon finish. Overall this is great sour brew and tastes exactly like a watermelon jolly rancher :-)

zoucrew102 (523) - - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Sour pear aroma with notes of tequila and oak. Pours a bright pinkish copper color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Slick, bubbly mouthfeel with sweet peachy flavor followed closely with tart pear. Dry, tart finish with hints of tequila with the tartness melding on the palate well after sip is done. Good, lively sour with excellent balance of flavor.

MrChopin (3276) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
shimmering gold, thin white head. Peach and lemon nose, light cigarette, filmy and foamy. Very citric nose, grapefruit sourness and peach sweetness in good balance through thin, sour, sparkling finish.
