A: Clear, dark brown pour with about a finger of off white head. Active bubbles raise up through the liquid.
S: Big sour hit with a boozy undertone. The guava is very noticeable, which I hadn't expected. I very much enjoyed the sour Guava Grove from Cigar City, so I'm excited about how this smells.
T: The taste continues the aroma, but is bolstered by a much stronger brown ale characteristic than I expected. The roast at the very end of the taste is a strange, but interesting addition to an American Wild Ale. Aggressive acidity with a nice guava hint. The booze is still noted, but the melody of flavors hide it well.
MF: Medium body with a high amount of carbonation. The sweet and sour mix is deliciously drinkable. So sour it makes your mouth ater.
O: This was very nice. Another reason I'm glad I'm in the Reserve Society. Bruery is doing American Wild Ales right.
Serving type: bottle
