Surprisingly good. Don’t let the “key lime pie” in a bottle description turn you off.

Pours a beautiful clear light garnet with a light reddish brown one-finger rocky head. Barrel aging is not over done. All the flavors from the barrel and the key lime pie ingredients are balanced nicely. Medium bodied beer with a relatively smooth feel. The alcohol is well hidden.

A very drinakable beer and one I’m glad I tried.

White and silver striped foil-capped 750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery’s Society. Bottled 6/1/18. Served in a Bruery teku. Enjoyed 11/30/18.

Pours a cloudy, dirty orange brown with a rapidly vanishing head of manilla fizz. No retention whatsoever.

Smells of tart citrus cream, bourbon, caramel and Bruery yeast.

Flavors are sweet and boozey. Bourbon and key limes vie for dominance with layers of graham cracker, sweet cream, a strong familiar fruity yeasty note, milk sugar, wet wood, cereal grain, vague apricot and a considerable nip of alcohol.

Full feel with restrained carbonation. Rich, booze-laden aftertaste of key lime bourbon and frosted grahams.

Another successful dessert beer from The Bruery. Last Slice heaps lime, graham cracker and merengue character on top of a base that I found similar to their wheatwine. It’s not as straight up pie as I might have enjoyed but it hits all the highlights.

Poured from fridge temperature into a teku. Pours a golden brown with quickly receding tan head. The nose is really incredible. Bourbon and caramel immediately smack you in the face. The vanilla and lime are easily detectable, and add really interesting elements to the nose. A touch of spice comes through on the nose as well. The taste is amazing, and incredibly unique. Wow. It takes a minute to settle down with the explosion of flavors. I'm getting bourbon and a lot of graham cracker immediately. Some chocolate and whip cream come through immediately after. What a perfect combination of flavors, some of which I have never tasted in a beer. Mouthfeel is creamy, and the alcohol is not really detectable. Overall, this is an amazing beer from the Bruery.

Poured from the bottle into a teku glass.

Pale dark orange, almost like a light pomengranate body color. Very lively off the pour, lots of snapping creating head, tan yellow in color, but fizzes away pretty quicky, not even leaving a collar. Very still looking brew, a little lifeless, bit of an orange glow, but some interesting color characteristics to it.

Aroma is a creamy lime tartness. Lots of cookie lime and biscuity action. It's very impressive, there's a touch of cream in here, and a good rounded caramel sensing aged/oaky body. Definitely smells as described, very impressive. Even comes out a little clove like spicy sweet.

Palate does not dissapoint. Whipped up body, with creamy touches of light acidic lime, toasty cookies and caramel, mixing with a rich decadent sharp sweetness and bitterness. Super zesty finish. Whipped up caramel and pie like crusty malt flavors abound, you can practically taste the toppings of pie on this thing.

Real fun and delicious tasting dessert like brew. Lots of fun, easily drinkable too and a little dangerous!
