Had this at a tasting thanks to Sammy. Pours cloudy orange. Aroma of lime, some spruce as Sammy noted. Medium carbonation. A bit too heavy on the lime. Leave is sour with peel astringency. Bottle.

Bottle. Appearance: copper clear with little white head. Aroma: just as expected...graham cracker, limes, caramelized marshmallow and a little alcohol. Taste: sweet toasted malt (almost stale), tart limes, little graham cracker, might be a little old. Mouthfeel: thin to medium with medium carbonation. Overall: smells exactly like key lime pie. Tastes not so much like it. Has that lager like blah taste going on.

12oz bottle.. . pours a lightly hazed gold .. great head, lacing is strong too .. . quite refreshing stuff, very odd beer though- light lime and tons of ginger.. a whole bottle would be tough
.. . . looks like somebody just locked in a 4 figure Nike pitchfork deal!

On tap at The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, gold and amber pour with an off white head. Aroma is just like a Key lime pie, taste has lime and tasty goodness. Not usually a fan of this type of beer, but very good!

12oz bottle thanks to northernbrews, thanks Jeff! Pours a clear copper red with no head and lacing, aroma is sweet with some marshmellow and a hint of lime, the flavor has a little more lime than the aroma does, not as much as I was hoping for, mouthfeel is a little light, cool beer to try.

12 ounce bottle shared by Gillard, thanks Ryan, poured a copper rust color, with aromas of marshmellow, gramcracker, fresh squezed lime, and some light caramel. Flavors are a tad sweet marshmellow up front with some light tart lime in the back, interesting beer, glad I got to try this one.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Tiffany's, Kalamazoo Michigan. Pour is hazy brown/copper. Trace white suds on top. Lime peel and homemade whipped cream scent, strangely accurate though I should say the lime scent is also reminiscent of lime away cleaner. Low carbonation at first with a watery mouth feel, feels bubblier upon swallowing. Tastes like very tart key limes with a light beer like corona. Not like they were mixed by the drinker, like they were deliberately brewed together. They pull it off well on this one though. Finish has some heat which I assume is from the large citrus content, pretty clean though. I like about 50% of the stuff I get from shorts but not usually their zany beers that are supposed to taste like other things (pb and j, strawberry shortcake, etc.) but I do like this one. Good enough to try one, not a whole 6pack.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pour is a darker amber color with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose has tons of lime, faint vanilla and cracker. Taste is artificial lime, bitter behind, light vanilla, lingering bitterness, lighter body, decent carbonation. Flavors are a bit flabby, and there is an off chemically flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Absolutely had to try this, of course. Poured cloudy orange with pretty much no head. Nose mainly of rose’s lime juice and graham crackers. Taste was sweet, but really tart especially on the end. Heavier bodied, smooth, and oily on the palate. A novelty, and I’m glad I had just a sample. It would be fun to pair it with the real thing and see how that works out. Glad I got to try it.
