A-EBF sample pour. Pours a cloudy, tarnished yellow color.

S-Interesting aroma. The yeast is prominent. Not really getting all too much tequila or barrel in general. I am picking up the lime and cilantro.

T-Tangy yeast with the lime and cilantro coming in nicely. Love Sorachi Ace hops and they complement the lime with its own lemony flavor. I guess aim picking up some tequila. Its got some pieces to it but it's rather mellow all things considered.

M-Lighter bodied. Reasonably refreshing. Well carbonated.

O/D-An interesting idea from perhaps my favorite brewery but this one is not on the same level as most every beer they make.
