Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice murky honey berry pink hue with a good one finger head that fades to leave a thin wisps.

S - Aromas of strong honey sweet cream ale base, big creamy notes, vanilla. Nice tropical notes, big guava notes, not really any coconut or dragon fruit.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice tropical notes, very nice creamy lactose and vanilla. The base beer is very pleasant. The coconut is faint but there, light generic red fruits.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, creamy, really nice.

O - Overall this was a rather solid cream ale, excellent base but the coconut and fruit could be a bit stronger. Still, great base!

Split with rudzud

Big creamy fluffy head fades semi slowly, decent line of lacing, decent legs as well, candy-apple-red blended with orange guava color

Nose is really unique, tree fruit and honey out front, like apple covered in raw honey, creamy wheat corn mash, with lactose on top, super creamy lactose and vanilla icing like, as I get accustomed to that lots of guava, little musty, not really dragonfruit or coconut, creamy guava paste,

Taste brings about the same, big creamy corn like malt, creamy wheat mash thing, a weird pink like fruit I can only feel is dragonfruit, some guava paste and juicy guava much less than the nose but it's there, plenty of creamy lactose and vanilla icing again, a little coconut liquor or rum in the background, a little tropical note rummy cream thing, touch of bitterness, hint of alcohol late.

Mouth is med to slight richer very creamy, nice fluffy carbonation, a touch of alcohol

Overall mixed, really unique and interesting, missing some characters in places, guava was nice in nose but a bit less in taste, other fruits were missing the nose but decent in the taste, cream was quite nice and lactose etc. but overall I feel like it wasn't as good as I hoped it would be.

750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery’s Society. Bottled 4/18/17. Served in a Bruery snifter. Enjoyed 1/9/18.

Pours a dull, cloudy peach hue with about three and a half fingers of ecrue head. The froth settles to a thin patchy haze and fluffy crown, leaving several large webs of lace.

Aromas of muted tropical guava, vague pineapple, sweet cream and some bready grains.

Tastes of guava, kiwi, mild lactose, faint toasted coconut, bread, subdued vanilla and just a little bit of pineapple.

Creamy, smooth body with pillowy carbonation. The finish is like tropical fruit purée and a little bread with a light lactose presence.

The Bruery and Funky Buddha teamed up to make a pair of mighty tasty cream ales. The sister brew to Guava Libre, Pink Snow has even more tropical depth. I don’t typically go for cream ales but I’d happily drink either of these collaboration brews again.

The look of this one may scare some off, and not much going on in the nose. The mouth feel is medium plus, I suspect due to the lactose used in the brew. An interesting brew and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a murky ruby-pink color with a one-finger foamy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge, looks thick as syrup

S- smells like guava nectar, like the kind you buy in the cans from the latin section of the grocery store. There's a distinct tropical aroma that mixes with creamy vanilla and a hint of coconut. Very interesting

T- loaded with tropical fruit up front with a big emphasis on guava. There's a creamy vanilla tone throughout that is complimented by some fresh coconut notes. The finish is like syrup flavored tropical juice, pretty unique

M- thick body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel that turns into a thick and viscous creamy finish, with just a bit of carbonation cutting through

O- given the two breweries, I was expecting something unique and it's certainly that, goes down easy as well

The dragonfruit cause a pink pour and the tart fruit aroma is evident, the coconut addition adds some complexity to the mouthfeel, however while this is different from the guava libre base, I don't think its necessarily an improvement

Unique beer. Mimics a glass of tropical fruit juice, and if that's your goal - thick, huge sweet flavors - who better than The Bruery and Funky Buddha?

Appearance? It's pink, so there you go. It smells of big tropical fruit. The lactose makes it dense and creamy, and the taste is just what you'd expect from a dragonfruit beer (?). The coconut and vanilla are complimentary notes, not featured flavors. It tastes like a big glass of tropical fruit juice. Not like any other beer I can think of.
