We received a keg of this brew into Coasters yesterday and curiosity got the best of me. A sampling is in order.
It pours a turbid light brownish color with a fluffy head that settles down into a thin skim. Not the prettiest beer in the world. Time for the smell and taste.
Interesting fruity smell. I don't know enough about guava to say, 'hey! that's guava!,' but I have a hunch it that's what it is. The name and all, you know?
Cool taste! Sharp, a little acidic and tart, but with a cool fruitiness going on. The end of the swallow is sweetish and mouth-coating. Pretty cool, and very unique tasting beer. Alcohol taste is nonexistant; this thing could pass for a SOBE drink in drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap

Trader tells me this is an 09 bottle "back when it used to be good."
A- Hazy honey, with 1/4 finger white cloud head. Very low retention.
S- Best category here. Smells of some passionfruit, not sure if I can pinpoint it to guava considering I live in Colorado. The "malt" beverage follows... ugh. Not a fan of malt beverage.
T- That being said; the passionfruit was the best thing to add to this malt beverage base. I couldn't imagine not drainpour w/o guava. It has the traditional malt beverage taste.
M- A bit much carb for me; kinda harsh. Kinda creamy, kinda smooth. Nothing exceptional.
O- If I had another, I would find someone who likes the style and give it to them.
