look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a golden amber color. Slightly hazy. Off white head that quickly disappeared.

S - Sweet and tart. I can smell the graham cracker crust and the key lime for sure. Very odd nose. Almost seems like an infection, but when you really think about it, there should be a touch of sourness.

T - Like nothing ever before. Sour, tart lime taste up front. Gives way to a malty sweetness. The aftertaste is the finished product, like key lime pie.

M - Medium body, with nice tight carbonation. Coats the tongue well, almost syrupy.

O - Wow, what a unique experience. This beer is sweet and sour, funky and comforting all at the same time. It really just is not like any other beer I've had before. That being said, I honestly don't see myself being able to drink more than one in a sitting.

12oz bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It pours a hazy orange with amber highlights. Each pour yields a beige head with large bubbles that have about eight seconds of staying power.

S - It smells like a sweet mess. I think I can discern some lime and some marshmallow.

T - As far as taste goes, I can kind of get the key lime pie. It is very sweet without a traditional beer taste.

M - Medium without a lot of carbonation.

O - I had this on tap once and was unimpressed. This serving was slightly better. It is overtly sweet and is more of a novelty than an every day beer.
