bwa5879 (537) - Portage, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle. Amber with floaties and small head. It’s every bit as strange as it sounds. Sweet with some light lime. Somehow this really does taste like Key Lime Pie. It’s a novelty, but a pretty cool novelty.

4oz on tap at HopCat East Lansing during the Shorts tap takeover. Mostly clear orange amber color. Minimal off-white head. Wow, big key lime pie creme aroma. Pretty close to the target. Weird for a beer, but damn, tastes like the pie. Very much lime zest and cream. Light tart zesty taste, moderate sweet. Medium-plus body. Very light carbonation. Nice pie crust. Impressive concept.

koleminer20 (429) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Draft at HopCat in East Lansing. . Pours a goldish with a hint of ruby. The aroma is a mind-blowing like scent. It smells like you’re almost about to take a shot of tequila. The taste is just as limey, if not more pronounced. The mouth feel lingers and the taste fades into a sprucy type of aftermath.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour a hazy amber with a thin head. As advertised, it has the aroma and taste of key lime pie with a slight malt background, Interesting.

Tried this on a date at the 2010 GABF. Had to go back for more! You can make out all the key ingredients for the pie, subtle lime taste and graham cracker too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone.

Draft at Lou and Harry’s (from backlog). This beer did smell and taste a bit like key lime pie. It was so sweet though that a couple ounces was plenty.

Very very interesting, with some key lime sweetness. Didn’t even mean to use key lime in...

djd07 (2915) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with medium frothy off white head. The aroma is a strong lime and spice. Thin mouthfeel with a very strong ginger flavor and lime with sugary finish. The key lime flavor is a little overpowering. Decent

rbrazell (1445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Draft at Hunaphu Day. Clear yellow pur with a small white head. Nose lemon lime, Sprite to be more precise with more real limes and sugar sweetness. Flavor is similar with a tinny sort of aspect to it. Interesting beer.

Tempting aroma and basic dirty gold appearance, balanced taste and simple mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
