Ratman197 (9808) - 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.

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.

adnielsen (9090) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
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.

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

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2014
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.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2014
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.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2014
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.

solidfunk (4012) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Comes together well. Finishes with medium to high sourness, a little mouth puckering. Golden pour with ok head and lacing. Citrus and plum, I guess prickly pear though I donít have a good idea of what that tastes like. Bottle thanks to Iphonephan at Epic Sour Tasting.
