Bottle: Pours bubbly amber with a quick, off-white head. Wheat, some graham cracker, lime aroma. The taste has the elements of key lime pie, but they’re all muted.....it never gets to that correct ratio of crust, lime, creaminess..... Not bad....but fails to deliver, ultimately.

I was expecting this to be overly sweet, and to get sickening after just 1. I was wrong. Fresh tart key limes and the subtle texture of liquid pie crust delight the palate. Had this on tap @ The Tosa Tavern, Whole Foods Grocery store. Alcohol and shopping, it’s a winning combination!

Sour aroma, reminds me of a Belgian sour. Copper in color with a small head that disappears quick. A sweet taste out of the gate but finishes sour instead of bitter. I would opt for Short’s Strawberry shortcake instead.

Bottle that Lopez hooked me up with after work (thanks brother). Deep golden-brown pour, medium off-white head, decent retention... and oh yeah, there’s the gummy remains of a fuckin marshmallow floating in it... or a spider laid an egg (tragically) in the bottle. Limes are in the nose, plus some malty caramel and dost I detecteth graham crackers in thou bouquet? Mouth is medium bodied, malt sweetness and some crackery notes (graham crackery to be more precise) with key limes in there as well. The finish is desert like, followed by a lingering note in the aftertaste that I can only describe as reminding me of a flavor from Copenhagen snuff (which I dipped both in and out of uniform for many years). Yeah. Shakespeare wouldn’t write about it. But I did. Not bad, but definitely not something I’d be interested in committing to a whole six pack of. So double thanks, Lopez.

Dark amber, darker than expected. ARoma is tangy caramel and a wine like thing. Same in taste with earthiness. Not that great. Overpriced novelty.

Bottle courtesy of my friend Lance. Thanks! Cloudy amber to near brown pour with a medium, foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, light limes/citrus, graham crackers and grains. Taste is slight tart limes, sweet malt, grains, graham crackers and light cream/marshmallow. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more tart limes, caramel, sweet malt, grains, graham cracker notes, candied fruit and light cream/marshmallow notes.

Sampled in a glass that was poured from a bottle, there were some chunks (about the size of a gnat or a touch larger) of white stuff on top of the beer in the bottle before I popped the cap, the specks were still there on top after pouring the beer into the glass, it does not look good at this point, after I swirled the beer around a bit, the chunks were bigger, probably marshmallow in the beer, this beer was a medium dark orange with a little gold in the glass, there was some haze, the pour made a less than half finger white cover that receded quickly to a tiny ring at the edge of the glass with a quarter size island of tiny bubbles in the center, hardly any lacing at all, some sweetness I believe to be the milk sugar, light malt, a bit of bread and graham cracker, a faint citrus fruit but it does not resemble lime, faint orange, the flavors were sugar, bread malt with graham cracker, and some lime like citrus fruit, there was some fruit sour-tartness, there was a small back and forth of sweet and citrus sour-tart in the drink, a light mouth feel, no creaminess to it, there was average carbonation, I tried many bottles over the years, none of them were that great, the flavor was closer to being a key lime pie than the nose, the nose did not resemble key lime, I do not know why I keep buying this beer every few years, I guess I hope it comes closer to being what it was intended to be, but it doesn’t, a disappointment of a drink.

Draft at MBG fest (also bottle) from notes. Pours a hazy copper color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have graham crackers, tart key lime, sweet creamy topping, pretty much what they were going for. Bottle was not up to the standards of the draft.

Notes from summer. Pours an orangish color. Aroma and taste are lime, grains, and some malts.

Poured a darker orange with a white head. Aroma was of caramel, lactose. Flavor simular, really sweet, light lime, caramel and lactos. Weird and not great.
