An insanely gross beer that for some reason I keep taking more sips. Doesn't have that redonk tequila sting but has that tequila flavor sting. Bottom of the bottle is full of gunk that is making this thing look like a friggin protein shake....barrel turds. In any event, a fully but softly carbonated lime-tequila zest beverage that DDT's every slight inkling of its former self. Gotta tick it though.

whole bottle to the dome and lit

Fresh 500mL bottle # 272/1000 poured into Ghandi snifter.

A: hazy gold with a orange/tangerine hue and thin white head dissipates quickly and doesn't leave much lacing.

S: Smell is musty, oaky, slight tequila, and bitter citrusy hops

T: I've never had a beer aged in tequila barrels before but I would imagine that this stands as one of the best. It's a completely unique beer and the taste follows the smell for the most part. I'm tasting oak, vanilla, slight tequila, citrus, grapefruit, hops, and a slightly bitter finish which is balanced out smoothly.

M: Fairly light for 8.8%, low carbonation, has a little bit of an oily feel and a touch of bitterness but quite refreshing.

O: I have been waiting for more than a year to try this and have to say that I was not let down, the creativity and execution is beautifully delicious. I definitely recommend this beer for anyone who likes tequila and/or Ghandi Bot.
