Thank you NCalement for the share!
edit: this was from a 750ml bottle
poured a hazy, pale yellow/orange color with a small but dense head that settled to a cap that hung around almost the entire serving. not much lacing just a few random blobs.
nose was intense. orange, citrus, guava esters up front followed quickly by some blue cheese. a hint of black pepper with some sweet malts round out the end.
sour but not puckering fruit up. sour subsides to pale malts, corn, butter, faint pepper, then finishes with a crispness and a slight acidic bite. a bit of a roller coaster in your mouth.
thin but substantial body with perfect carbonation for the style. literally mouth-watering.
a unique and wonderful beer. the three tiers of fermentation can be distinguished in a such a way that i am not accustomed to. they come almost one after another in order from main fermentation to secondary to tertiary. great flavor combinations that really seem to work though they don't really blend together. a must try if you liked the "sour" guava groves.

Bottle to Teku
A: A little darker than expected. Somewhere between blonde and dark rose color
S: Slightly more sour than fresh, can tell fruit is not as present but smells much more sour than fresh.
T: More sour, fruit has faded slightly but becoming something very interesting. Pretty darn tart. I could see this doing well over time.
M: Slightly more slick than fresh but still plenty of carb.
O: Loved this beer fresh but it seems it could turn into something even better.
