750mL bottle courtesy of markwise. It pours opaque copper with thick gold edges and a sixty second tan head of foam. The aroma is sweet with sugary double cream (double dream) sweetness flowing into sweet pear and apple esters as well as some tequila, spicy oak and vanilla. The taste has that thick double cream sweetness that moves into fig and apple esteriness as well as quickly moving into spiciness with oak and punchiness with a light degree of tequila pulses. To midway some booze shows up as well as a touch of vanilla, cinnamon and more booze taking this to the after taste.

Cumin!!!!!! Liquide sec et boisé sur un corps moyen. Tout ce que je me souviendrai c’est la présence brutale du cumin, très original et ça fonctionne.

erickok (4135) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 7, 2012
Copper, clean body and pretty much no head. Herbal, spices, vegetable and only a light red berry sweetness. Herbal and spice but unusually I like it here. Enough balancing sweetness. Bit sharp but great richness. (At ZZT V)

DutchDrebus (4598) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2012
@ZZT V. Hazy orange with a small white head. Smells a herb like thyme or rosemary, lavender, floral. Tastes a lot of herbs and spices, very sweet. Warming, full body, soft carbo. Very much not a taste i like. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad beer or anything, but i really don’t like the taste and smell.

Benzai (9783) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2012
75cl bottle @ ZZT V. Shared by Joes. Hazy orange color, small off-white. Smell is absolutely not what I like in a beer: spices, herbs and peppery. Taste also has a lot of herbs and spices, and lightly sweet. Medium carbo, low to medium body.

OldGrowth (2868) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2012
bottle, from charity bottle auction at Triangle Wine. Ok aroma, getting the tequila and lime, less of the spice. brownish orange color, ok head that faded quick, no lace. sweet flavor, medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, spiced dryish finish, meh, not really grabbing me. The Tequila overwhelms the cream ale, probably intended, because otherwise why BA a cream ale. well, it was for a good cause....

boFNjackson (4187) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle (thanks to Daknole!)... Poured pale golden with a thin head. Nose had tequila with note that reminded me of a margarita. I guess that’s the concept though. Quite nice. Refreshing yet tones of malt sweetness to offer complexity. Lime, citrus, spice, barrel notes, and a hint of booze. Really wonderful and unique.

750ml bottle, shared by jcwattsrugger. I have to agree with John. The best beer of an afternoon of drinking on my patio. Pours a hazy orange gold with a finger of off white head. There’s a lot going on here. Aroma is rife with wood notes, lime, citrus and a good whiff of alcohol. Tequila is more obvious in the flavor. As the beer warmed a bit, you would have thought you were drinking a Margarita w/lime. I don’t know what cumin is, but I’m sure it’s in there. Palate was fairly modest with a bit of bitterness. Very nice, very nice indeed.
