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 isnít very desirable but itís cool in this. Lots of pear and apple along with some vanilla. Way more enjoyable and chuggable than I expected.

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.

Great sour, some spice, with tequila in the finish. Mouthfeel felt like fruit pieces. Very drinkable. Tequilla nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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