On tap. Pretty semi-clear golden color with a good head that lingers. Passion fruit and salt come through in the aroma. Taste exceeds nose with guava joining the passion fruit to balance out the salt and upper end tartness/slight souring on the back end. Light body and medium-high carbonation with a clean finish.
I didn't expect something as subtle as the guava to survive the souring but it did. Another well done beer that uses non-traditional ingredients.

I should not review Paradise Pucker as summer is not Chicago in December.
The inappropriate season aside, Paradise Pucker still is too sour for 95% of the foods I eat. However, I will say that this bottle was more palatable after it had been open three days.
After shattering the sour-meter, I recommend that the brewers change their moniker of "100% Rogue" to at least 150%. And for those who think that Rogue can do no wrong: they can, they are human like the rest of us. They got too ambitious and chased a style they knew too little of to make it well.
My advice to Rogue: stick to your knitting of experimenting with the British tradition.

Hazy burnt amber with a frothy off-white foam that clings at the edges.

Smell is sharp stinging ripe fruit: lime, passionfruit, peach and orange.

Taste is guava, passionfruit and orange, all fruit and all tart, sharp and even sticky, with a light body, light froth, and dry finish.

Rogue Ales "Paradise Pucker"
$7/pint on tap @ Union Tap House, Philadelphia, PA on 6 October 2017

Notes: Hazy deep gold body beneath a thin cap of white that fades immediately, which is common for sour beers. The aroma is fruity and mineralish, and clean. The taste is very tart but not quite puckering. Apart from the acidity it's made up of lightly sweet golden malt with yeasty fruitiness (apricot, apple, pear). Medium-light in body and gently carbed. Any additional CO2 would accentuate the acidity and it's really quite nicely smooth as it is. Dry, mineralish, and lightly tart finish. Really quite refreshing and drinkable although a little basic.

Clear golden colored beer with a tall white colored head.

Smells woody. Lots of hops and a catty scent. Scent of sour fruit mostly passion fruit.

Starts out sour and fruity. Lemon and passion fruit taste. Don't actually taste any guava.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall it is a sour fruit ale. Not really all that remarkable.

650ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Hazy golden orange color with thick creamy off-white head that stands with good retention before slowly collapsing to some bubble on the surface and leaving mild lacing on the glass-side.

Sour and tart dominates throughout both the aroma and flavor. It is sour like a lemon, yoghurt, acidic, and lacto. Also from the addition of passion fruit, orange peels, and guava provide its obvious fruity and tropical evidence. Grain and wheat malt too together with some sour yeast in the background.

Medium body with rather smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation through the palate, the feeling is crisp and puckering with a very dry finish.

Sour and tart like it should be with a good addition of passion fruit, orange peels, and guava.
