12 oz bottle. Thanks to Iphonephan. Aroma is some funky fruit notes, sweet barrel character. Flavor is much better - funky, tart fruits. Pleasant.

craftycarl21 (2295) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle, thanks to iPhonePhan! Hazy peach colored pour. Big pear and apple, definite tequila kick. Nice to see Avery go back to something not quite as boozy. I like it, donít love it.

JStax (3676) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with no head. The aroma is sweet with some dill pickle notes. Do prickly pears taste like pickles? Sour funky taste. Medium carbonation.

djd07 (5894) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle at Euclid Hall. Pours a clear orange gold with no head. The aroma is a strong prickly pear, lime, and oak. Thin mouthfeel with nice sour pear and lime juice with nice tart finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Light and tart. Pear, peaches, and funky nose. Slightly sweet with hints of tequila and oak with a rich vibrant fruitiness with well rounded tart. Balanced on the end. Really nicely done.

beerbaaron (1650) - Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle courtesy of theothermatt. Pours a hazy orange amber. Wispy off-white head, some lasting. Aroma is yeasty and sour fruity. Sour, some funk, barnyard, wood, soft citrus, lemon, (what I think is the) prickly pear, just a hint of tequila perhaps. Flavor matches. Lighter medium body. Semi Prickly and crisp. Strong sourness. Its got s nice initial zing. Green apple. Lemon. Lime. Tequila peeks out for a moment. Semi dry, lingering sour finish with a thin layer of tequila barrel character. Really nicely put together.

GreatDane1632 (919) - USA - APR 2, 2014
Recieved as a part of Free Beer Week 2014 -- Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Very fizzy quarter inch head that disappears quickly. Not much aroma to speak of. Looks like a hazy golden with pink highlights. The flavor is amazing, very tart/sour to start with on the top of the tongue and as it slides back Iím left with an amazing tropical fruit flavor; Lychee and Kiwi. Very impressive beer.

Pours a deep orange amber with a thin white head. Aroma of prickly pear, tequila, oak and lacto. Taste is prickly pear, oak, earth, lacto and tequila. Really nice sour, clean and crisp no acetone, great mix of flavors.
