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.

12 oz. bottle shared at Darkness Eve! Pours Amber gold with little to no head. Aroma is sour tart and flunky. Taste all of the above. Palate is thin slick and cloying, in a good way! Love it!

GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a hazy amber orange hue, mellow haziness, nice fall glow with an offwhite frothy head atop. Nose shows some nice passionfruit, lactic acidity and decent oak. Prickly pear, gentle spirit and vanilla. Decent lactic jab, mellow funk. Initial is fuzzy and punchy, nice sour punch is tropical, some prickly pear, decent oak, some vanillin. Nice fuzzy sour vibe, mellow oak. Nice guava, kiwi, and prickly pear jabs. Touch of cranberry, grapefruit and more tannic oak, earthy spicy tequila, agave. Gentle fuzz, touch of funk. Backend is nice prickly pear, a bit juicy, some nice sourness, acidity, yogurt. Really tasty. Some warmth, firmer sourness and nice oaky finish, lingering tequila like essence. Yum.

Bottle shared by Seth. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Sour prickly pear aromas? Sweet with cactus, fruit, and caramel malt notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Not overly complex but with a good body and mouthfeel.

Pours a light orangey color. Smells deliciously sour with aromas of peach, lemon, oak, and citrus. Very tart and sour while still kinda sweet. Riminds me of a very light, tart, lemonade with tropical fruit notes.

Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some tequila and prickly pear notes and is very sweet overall. The flavor is similar. I get the sweet prickly pear notes as well as some tequila and sugar notes. Boozy. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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.
