Pour out of 750 mL bottle, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big lime, tequila, oak, and salty notes, hints of the spicy notes come through with cumin, coriander, nice white fruits as well go into biscuit and bread. Taste is a mix of big lime, tequila and oaky tones, slight white fruit into biscuit , bread, spice comes through with a touch of yeast, finishing fairly lime-forward.

75oml bottle. Dulled hazy orange-tan body. Thin head. Odd agave tequila and smooth brown malt. Quite sugary. Boozy finish. OK, but in no way sessionable.

Bottle shared by Mike. Weird beer. It tasted very much like a shot of tequila. Strong menthol notes with mild sweet spice. Not getting any citrus. There’s just too much tequila and menthol here to get anything else.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at DLD 2012 and 2013, I combined my rating into one: Pours a hazed orangy golden hue with a fading head, spotty lace. The aroma has notes of agave, kaffir lime leaves, pepper, resiny and dank hops, leather, and some floral herbs qualities. The taste is moderately fruity and citric acid tones with a light biscuity and earthy supporting cast. Got plenty of tequila on the boozy finish. Faint wood and bitterness along with warming spicy notes. The mouth feel is quite odd, sprite and lively with aggressive warming but seems thin and must say a tad boring. I was left less than impressed by this brew both times.

750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has citrus, touches of lime, cumin that creates a sweaty note, caramel and wood. The flavor is similar minus the sweat. Barrel notes, lime citrus, caramel and spices. Interesting, but not my favorite.

750ml bottle, bottled Feb 2012. Shared by b3shine. Hazy orange color. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Whow. Very interesting, different flavor. Tastes like a lime margarita up front, with the tequila barrel. I thought I was in a Mexican restaurant, for a second there. Big herbal flavor, too, kind of minty, like a mojito. Kind of lightly woody, lightly sweet, big spicy woody note in the taste. Light alcoholic bite. Hint of zesty, citrusy tropical fruit. Very interesting and different. Smooth, bigger body and texture, dry finish. Lighter, softer carbonation. Tastes like more than 9.5% for me, personally. Kind of a boozy tequlia burn if you swallow this wrong. Very interesting, different stuff, though. dc loved it.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by me with the group; thanks burg326). Looks good; a cloudy orangish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells pleasantly odd; citrus and sweat (likely from the cumin). Tastes like it smells with a strange but good mouthfeel. If you can’t tell if you love or hate a beer, you can’t hate it.
