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.

Had it on tap at CBC 2015. I liked it pretty much. The different flavors worked out really nice and the beer was balanced and easy to drink.

Kind of a mess. Light citrus and something earthy, probably the cumin. Lots of resin. Very sweet and syrupy. Pours resiny red without much head or lacing. Tap at Churchkey shared by Gendv138.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. This beauty poured from a growler. The pour is a darker ruby or copper color with a soft lighter khaki colored head. The aroma is really interesting. There is a good bit of tequila here, mixed with taco meat and straight up cumin. Not really picking up on any lime. The flavor has a good spiciness to it, from the cumin, and it’s got a strangely nutty flavor. There is a light oaky tequila on the back end, and just a hint of the lime citrus there. The mouthfeel is really creamy and softly carbonated. The cumin just presents a lingeringly spicy aftertaste that goes on for days. This is a weird, creamy beer.
