Watery at first but with an awful aftertaste which should be like Tequila but is something between detergent and artificial sugar. Disappointing at best.

Light, soda-like, headless beer with a good dose of ginger... disappointed.

I will not drink this beer unless there are no other choices.

This sweet tasting beer says tequila but really has a very sweet agave and citrus taste to it. Lightly carbonated. I served this extra cold and it was liked by most at the tasting. It could've had something to do with it being over 40 degrees Celsius at the time but who knows.

Tastes like champagne, slightly sweet, but poor aftertaste.

I thoroughly enjoyed it! It's become one of my most favorite beers. Originally tried it in Gatlinburg, TN. Can't find it in Texas, but am looking.

Picked this up to try something new. It was not at all what I expected.

Smells like lemon, grass, and tequila.

Pours with zero head and has the mouth-feel of a malt beverage, like Smirnoff.

It is mild and grainy with a lot of lime, lemon, and tequila. I like tequila, but this is a little too sweet for me. Has a little woodiness in there but it doesn't linger.

Overall this is a definite pass.
