Notes/Commercial Description:
Otiose is an English word (pronounced ‘oh-shus’) which means “without practical purpose.” It was a beer developed by our brewers during a rare space in the brewing schedule simply to satisfy their own cravings for a sour brown ale fermented with guava. Rich with tropical notes and balanced by a mellow roast, this beer brings your mind directly to a decadent Hawaiian luau, complete with the roasted pig.

A: A deep hazy brown that has a tinge of ruby to it. There is a very white lacy head.

S: There is a sour apple estery aroma. There is both sweet and sour aromas present.

T: Incredibly complex flavors. There is a sharp sour flavor that starts this off. There is some fruit flavors of grapefruit, guava, and grape in the middle. To finish it off, there is a sweet caramel malt flavor present.

M: A thick silky smooth body with a ton but pleasant amount of carbonation.

O: Great beer. Worth getting and trading for.

The beer comes in a dark rust brown color.

The nose has vinegar, oak, acetic sourness, tart sour fruit.

The flavor follows with strong vinegar, vinous notes, tartness, and then the beer suddenly explodes into a fresh tropical guava note. The guava and tropical grapefruit notes really flavor off the tartness well. A light sweetness on the finish.

A really interesting beer that utilizes guava very well.
