3.69/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
From notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tasting glass.
My pour is a dark amber color, hazy with a bring orange edges. A small off-white cap forms initially and gradually fades.
The aroma is definitely unique. Not much of the cream ale comes into my nose, but lime, tequila, oak, and most prominently cumin all rise into my nose.
The flavor reminds me a little bit of an Indian curry dish with the strong cumin presence. Agave, tequila, and a ton of lime also come through. The light malts from the cream ale form a launching pad for the adjuncts to shine through but do not really contribute much noticeable flavor themselves.
This has a medium body, with a slightly creamy medium carbonation. It starts with a juicy bit of lime and dries out with the tequila and barrel. It has a bit of a prickly, spicy character to it.
I enjoyed my decent sized sample, but I think everyone else that tried it was not a big fan.

Tried on tap at DLD. A very unique beer. This was the first tequila aged beer I've had. The aroma is interesting, and the pour is a murky yellow with a bit of a white head. The cumin and the lime peels really provide an extra something that makes this beer stand out. Definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on one.
