750ml bottle from El Cat club. No bottle dating or ABV on label.

Orange-guava colored elixir, poured into Funky Buddha snifter. Thin, white rim of foam, no lacing.

Wonderful combo of the guava and citrus with oak and chardonnay.

The chardonnay barrel marries well with the guava and fruit, providing a nice, crisp taste but not overwhelmingly sour or tart.

Nice, smooth bitterness, light to medium body.

Very nice brew from CCB. Recommended for those who enjoy sours or those branching out for the first time.
