Thanks to Tim for opening this at Kill the Cellar Day.

A: Hazy yellow orange with an enormous white head.

S: Huge guava nose with floral notes and pepper. Lemongrass meets a restrained bubblegum presence.

T: Big guava presence with a light candied quality. Lemongrass blends with earth and floral notes. Great fruit flavor. Light peppery finish.

M: Medium body with high carbonation.

Overall: Not as phenolic as the regular version with a lot more fruit. Nice.

Serving type: bottle

Poured from 750ml Bottle into small tasting glass at Floyds anniversary party. Bought the bottle from Cigar City the weekend before on my trip to Tampa.
Aroma of guava and fruit. Poured a muddy orange/peach color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of guava, tropical fruits, and some sugar. Light to medium body. Thinish, tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Heavily sweet, guava and fruit finish is dry.
