Poured this 750 mL brown bottle into a Tripel Karmeliet glass. The body was a murky, dull orange color. The small, light tan head left almost no lace.

The smell was barnyard-like. Brett! Wet concrete and later sour candy and leafy hops.

The taste did not reflect the aroma. Fruity, acidic sharpness. Puckering peachy and spicy hops flavors. Lactic bite, but also a creaminess. Deeply fruity and tart. Very tasty.

The mouthfeel was medium in viscosity and carbonation. I would seek this out again and again.

The beer somehow drinks way above its ABV, almost double. On both the aroma and the flavor, the beer is straight guava juice. As you drink it, it hits of guava sweetness, then more flavor, then onto the slight tart quality the fruit has. Everything is so guava about this beer. A medium malt body in the middle offers some sweetness and makes the beer seem bigger than it is.

A really interesting one.
