4.34/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at DDG release. Pours a murky amber color with a small white head. Scent is quite boozy with some definite tequila aromas. Some dark fruits and sour aromas. A little funky. Lots of lime and a bit of other citrus fruits. Taste is tequila up front, but not nearly overwhelming. Nice oak flavor with a good amount of puckering sour fruit flavors. Finishes with a sweet, sugary lime flavor. Mouthfeel is very nice for the style. Not overly carbonated, but not even close to being still. Drinkability is high, especially for such high ABV. Overall, I felt this beer was absolutely fantastic. It was my first tequila barrel aged sour, and I loved every sip. I really hope they decide to bottle this one. Delicious!
