Courtesy of and shared with Sebletitje together with Antoine – Thx! 75 cl. bottle / bottled on 02/2012. Man this was def. on my wishlist. Creamy dark orange amber with little white head. Smell is sweet exotic fruits, lime, candy, wood, what I assume is tequila which is fruity and sweet, mango, cumin, light exotic spices,… Taste is sweet candy (tequila), toffee, caramel, mango, light wood barrel, oriental bitter spices in the back, cumin & lime heavy, orange peel, light honey, fruity, sweet,… Creamy body. Oh yeah this is awesome. Love tequila BA wish there were more tequila BA stuff out there but it seems like most people don’t dig the flavours and the barrels are apparently quite hard to get hold of.

Cloudy gold pour, white head. Wow this is one unique brew and freaking awesome. First arom I get is tequila and then cumin followed by some lime and light oaky notes. Flavor reminds me of a margarita for a second then I get some southwestern food notes, just freaking awesome.

The description of this one has to peak your interest. The nose smells like a margarita slightly as you definitely get hit with the tequila and lime. The taste is much of the same as you get the tequila right up front followed by the spiciness of the cumin and then it finishes with a nice lime taste. The cream ale body comes through for a good mouthfeel. I’m going out on a limb here but this very well be my favorite CCB I’ve ever had.

75cl bottle, thanks to ibrew2or3, cheers Dave for bringing this one over from the US. Orangée trouble, col crémeux et soyeux beige-blanc cassé. Arôme est étonnant. Je note ici pas vraiment ce côté Tequila mais plus cette influence de jus d’agave qui est agréablement complété par le cumin. Ce mélange est fin sans pour cela devenir trop dérangeant. Tequilla se ressent avec un ajout citronné subtile. Palais est ici aussi très agréable. La bière est complexe, alternant la douceur d’une cream ale avec la Tequila qui ne vint en rien dominer la dégustation. Le cumin rajoute aussi une dimension à la bière qui me plaît bcp, mais qui risque de ne pas faire l’unanimité. Le niveau d’alcool se prête bien à ce profil aromatique très caractéristique. Le houblon se note en toute fin de bouche ajoutant une pointe d’amertume. Le citornné quant à lui arrive aussi en finde bouche pour titiller le palais et lier cumin et Tequila. Je note aucune présence boisée, et encore une épaisseur, voire rondeur douce me rappelant l’agave. Bière à partager et qui se laisse déguster pour une expérience unique.

Bottle poured into glass. Ok I’m not trying to be nasty or crude here but this beer smelled and tasted very much like a vagina. As much as I wanted to taste the tequila on this I just couldn’t escape that woman-esc flavor. I loved it!’

Bottle sample @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Light clear orange body, small off-white head. Nose is surprising and nice: light candy sugars, blue cheese, tequila, wood, lime and hints of pale malts and syrup in the back. Taste is blue cheese, pale malts, tequila, candy sugars, lime, herbs and hints of wood and alcohol. Original and very, very tasty in my opinion. Dry, woody palate which suits the beer perfectly. Wow, this is sooo good! :-) A truly original creation and a very nice sipper in its own way. Wish I had a full bottle of this.

The very definition of craft. The dominate flavor of cumin is quite definite. The beer looks and feels absolutely beautiful with a golden copper and creamy head. This beer would go perfect with chili. It's a winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy orange. Nose at first is weird, very cocktail-like. Heavy booze and citrus followed by hints of spice (cumin). Flavor is super smooth, perfect amount of tequila presence, bitter lime peels, sweet citrus and hints of spice all melding perfectly with the sweet unertones that come with double cream. I went into this beer ready to hate it ... Double Cream is not my bag, thought cumin would be weird, I hate tequila ... but dammit was this great!

I was very curious to try this one. Tap at Hunahpu day. Nose is funky with a bit of liquor notes and a sour touch. Don’t know what else to say. The body was an orange-like hazy color. Flavor wise, I enjoyed this beer a lot. You definitely get a good dose of tequila and a sweet citrus vibe. The cumin doesn’t show up until later (at least for me). I think this is an innovative and great tasting brew. Keep it up CCB.
