So, I shelled out my $2.69 and purchased a single bottle. It sat in my refrigerator for weeks while I waited for an occasion that seemed appropriate for trying this unusual beer. Then one day last weekend, my wife said, "When you open that bottle of Key Lime Pie I want to try it." An occasion had presented itself.
That night I opened the bottle and gave it a try. It did taste a bit like lime, graham cracker...maybe some marshmallow, but it was way too sweet for me, to my great disappointment. I gave the rest to my wife, who took one sip and had the same reaction. Although it is a rarity in my home, we poured out this rest. Fortunately, I had recently purchased a six-pack of "Ale la Reverend," also from Short's, so I had an excellent alternative.
