CCB Guanabana
Colab w/ Wakefield.
Very cloudy Milky yellow in color. Medium sized white head. Some light lacing. Aroma is pleasant, fairly tropical, but not of the NZ hop type of tropical. Bread, yeasty, banana, and unripe passion fruit. Taste is moderately sweet, but mostly bready with significant yeast and green banana. Taste is muddled and dirty. Medium full bodied, creamy, smooth mouthfeel, almost like a melted smoothie.
This is one of the first Wakefield beers I've had the chance to try and, considering the hype surrounding his name, I felt this one was quite the let down.

On tap at CCB tap takeover OTC.

A: This is one ugly beer. Extremely murky, hazy straw color. Tiny white head that immediately dissipates. No head, looks more like fresh squeezed juice.
S: Hm, now this is interesting. Light malt, super fruity: citrus, papaya, guava, pineapple. I've never had guanabana so I can't compare it to that though.
T: Light, sweet maltiness. Huge pineapple, guava, peach and citrus flavors with a nice hoppy bite. I wouldn't compare it to the bitterness of an IPA though, it tastes more like slightly bitter fruit juice.
M: Super juicy and refreshing. Nice light mouthfeel. Barely any carbonation though.
O: Great, yet unconventional beer. I really enjoyed this, I would gladly drink this all day at the beach.

Poured from tap into snifter at lokal Miami. Apparently the only draft of this in south Florida right now and was part of hunapu (sp) day. Pours a super murky orange white peachy color. Looks pretty nice. Really tropical aromas...passionfruit and pineapple. Taste is very crisp light tropical fruit. Again pineapple and passionfruit dominate. Slight bitter finish to balance the sweet tropical fruit.
Nice brew but not mind blowing...but a great fruit beer.
