The bouquet is nice and limey. It smells like a decent margarita. Out of the can, the first taste is lime and Triple Sec everywhere, with a nice salty edge to it. But the finish was skunky, and reminded me of wet gym socks. On another reviewers suggestion, I tried it over the rocks, and it was much better. The head was the typical small-bubbled, egg-white commercial heads that lasted about 30 seconds, but margaritas aren’t supposed to have a head anyway. The skunkiness went away and left a nice clean lime finish. It tastes like a mild margarita, very refreshing. I also tried cooking a Tequila Lime Perdue chicken with it in my pressure cooker, and it was outstanding! This stuff is more valuable as a cooking ingredient than as a drink. Over-all, not a bad drink, and a welcome addition to my kitchen magic (I am a chef)...much better than a lot of wines. For drinking, it’s OK, but at over $7.00 for 4 cans, you can buy the stuff and make real margaritas cheaper.

Drinks like a sophomoric margarita. Refreshing enough to drink with a big plate of tacos.

Light hazy, green tinted straw liquid. Aromas of lime, wood, salt and agave. Sugary lime flavors. Lime Kool-aide with a hint of tequila. 4/13

25 0z. can. Pours no head, over a fizzy, cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body........nose is lime, with a hint of lemon, no malts, no hops, light tequila, moderate chemical tones.....taste is slightly sweet, with lemon lime sourness, light tequila notes, no malts, no hops, lingering chemical notes.......mouth feel light and watery, moderate alcohol, high quite fizzy soda like carbonation. The qualities of beer are almost completely absent from this concoction. Fruit beers should have an identifiable beer character that is enhanced by the fruit addition. This is really more of an alcoholic chemical laden soda pop. BJCP 4/1/6/3/4

Tough to rate this. It’s not truly a beer.

Pours a lemonade, okay, limeade color. No head, no lacing. For a beer, it’s bad.

Aroma is much like a margarita. Lime and salt and maybe tequila. Smells okay.

Taste is salty lime with tequila kick. What else would you expect? It’s actually okay.

Mouthfeel is medium body. There’s nothing refreshing, or notable about it.

Overall, it’s similar in taste to a margarita. Again, pretty good. I’ll give my overall a better score than the rest of the categories. I don’t think I’ll have this again, but I’m curious enough now to want to try the others.

Can from Martys, drunk 1/16/16.
Like its brethren, it’s wholly artificial, not worth being poured in to a glass and not palatable. Probably worse than the mango but maybe better than the apple? Artificial lime, sugar, chemical and syrup on the end. They do hide the abv well, I guess? Not much to say, but sure, I’ll take the tick.

Can - not much head, light green color, overly sweet, artificial lime flavoring, like a pretty bad/cheap margarita
