The beer offers tart fruits in the front of citrus, green apple, then onto a hit of sweetness and Belgian strong pale qualities in the back end. The sweetness does not linger, but hints at the beer being possibly higher in ABV.

A wonderful medium to medium plus mouthfeel. A good balance between the guava, tart, oak, sweetness, and yeast expression.
