Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Stephen! Clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tequila, lime, hints of hibiscus into a bit of tart lemon, biscuit, bready notes with a touch of oak, agave comes through as well. Taste is a mix of lime, hibiscus, floral notes into a bit of oak, tequila, hints of biscuit, bready notes, slight yeast into a bit of lime, finishing fairly tart, slightly sweet. Probably one of the better ones in recent memory.

ajnepple (2280) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
12 oz bottled 2 weeks ago purchased at Evergreen Discount and poured into a small wine glass. Orange and pretty clear with light sediment and a fizzy, quickly diminishing head. Tropical, fresh aroma of tart fruit, sour notes, light oak and a touch of tequila. Similar flavor, juicy, fruity, tart, sour and lightly sweet. Medium body with a nice puckering feel and a lasting finish. Pretty damn good.

Bottle share thanks to Matt. Appearance: slight cloudy, finger white head, amber copper color. Aroma: tart fruitiness, light oak, slight agave on the taste, more complex than I got a chance to really dive into. Palate: light body, average carbonation, tart finish, dry finish. Taste: nice fruit sweetness to tartness, slight agave on the finish. Overall, one of the better balanced sours I have ever had, unique tastes and scents, just wonderful.

This is one of the best sours I have ever tried. Very sour and very fruity. Tastes like watermelon, cherries, super tart goodness. Tequila on the nose otherwise not very present. Kippie In Colorado

HonkeyBra (3422) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a wispy white head. Aroma of barrel, earth, salty, agave and prickly pears notes. Mild fruit and tequila notes. Flavor is very sour with mild earthy and mild sweet notes. Light saltiness. One of the most sour beers I’ve ever had, actually. Medium bodied, somewhat slick, with soft carbonation. Very nice sour.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle from Pat. Thanks ßrō. Aroma and flavor of prickly pear, wild yeast and slight tequila (at least, not overpowering). I couldn't imagine a much better execution on the palate, nice carb and mouthfeel...not really acetic or overpoweringly sour. Great beer.

Mep3222 (514) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Aroma of fruit and vinous sour. Not sure what prickly pear smells like but prob that. Maybe sour pear, and the tequila doesn't come through much. Taste is vinous sour. 7 of 10 maybe. And some sour pear and tangy ness. Another great sour from avery. Love it!! Very different of a sour but still great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. Dark amber in color. Slight amount of head. Smells sour. Tastes sweet, sour, and very plant like. Has a very prickly pear after taste. After taste Stays in mouth for a long time. Light amount of lacing is present.

Ratman197 (9952) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of caramel, prickly pear, grassiness, light oak, light barnyard and a hint of tequila. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of caramel, prickly pear, lemon zest, light oak and a hint of tequila with a crisp dry tart lingering prickly pear finish.

craftbeerdesign (2182) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Pours a light orange with a small head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is a nice blend with the prickly pear coming forward followed with some light tequila barrel notes and pedio. The acidity pulls it together. Med body with an acidic mouthfeel with layers of prickly pear and barrel notes with the tequila shining on the finish. Overall a very nice light sour with a unique flavor profile.
