Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal

Hazy, impenetrable hay-color. The smell is bleak, vague, and funky-bad. Wheat soft sweet. Weird. Maybe that's cumin or some strange taco spice. The beer is bizarre. Savory. I can see tacos. Doritos. Cumin again, or chiles. Taco shell. Spicy wheat. Dryish finish. Herbal, earthy, English-esque hops. I might recommend this. It's certainly not bad. Or even obvious. I like it. I DO recommend it.

Pours a yellow-ish orange color. It's quite cloudy, though not opaque. Medium sized white head. Moderate retention, fades pretty quickly to a dusting of bubbles. The aroma has a whole bunch of fruity hops along with a grainy cornmeal flavor and a lot of lime. The hop flavor is fruity and fresh - tangerines, lemons, limes, peaches, pineapples, grapes, all sweet and tasty. The spicing is fairly mild. I'm mostly getting the lime juice with a little bit of cilantro and just touches of the rest. On the other hand, the taco shells and chips are quite distinct in the aroma. It has a grainy cornmeal graininess that actually works really well with the lime and hops. Very refreshing beer that would go well with food, specifically tacos. Light mouthfeel. Fairly dry. Mild bitterness. Fun to drink.
