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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Steve_0, thanks Stephen! Pours a pretty clear golden orange appearance with a thin off white head and pretty serious legs. Lots of light fruits in the nose - apple, pear, lime - with a slight spiciness, maybe from wood. Really tastes like a green apple jolly rancher. Usually, green apple isn’t very desirable but it’s cool in this. Lots of pear and apple along with some vanilla. Way more enjoyable and chuggable than I expected.
