On tap at CW. Pours a medium darker reddish-orange body, one finger white head, short retention, no lacing. Smells of orange peel and a touch of tequila. I'm not a tequila fan, but there is plenty of it here for those of you who enjoy it. Flavour is an odd mix of orange peel, mineral and grain, and tequila. I don't think these components mesh together very well, to be honest. Mouthfeel is lighter medium bodied, fair carbonation, a light dry tequila flavour on the finish. I'm not a huge fan of tequila and really wanted to enjoy this, but I guess that didn't really work out here.

Nice redish-orange color, presumably from the blood oranges. Smell is strong orange peel. Flavor is intense and confusing; the orange dominates with the tequila being a very mild accent. I can't really describe what's wrong but it's simply not enjoyable and this is the only CW beer I've ever not finished. The Promise is infinitely better.
