At CCB on Hunahpus Eve. Snifter. Pours cloudy yellow with no head. Looks like pineapple juice. Smells like fruit mixed in with a light lager. Little dirty smelling. Bit of earthiness. Flavor up front is very light and fruity. Easy drinking and pleasant. But the finish is weird. Dirty finish nearly like drinking a Keystone Light. Unfortunate. Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Man. I wanted to like this but it is just a crappy finish.

Thanks Louis for the hook-up, this was an unique treat that I didn't think I'd be able to experience. Served in a 12oz snifter. J. Wakefield/CCB Collab made with guanabana fruit.

A- Pours a murky yellowish orange pear color. Pretty much no head, not overly carbonated. Looks more like juice then beer, which actually goes with the aroma/smell nicely. I wouldn't exactly consider this bad looking for a beer, just not a typical appearance you would expect from a beer.

S- Lots of fresh tropical fruits of pear (the most dominant), passionfruit, guava, a bit of pineapple, and other fruits. Very juice-like in the nose and fairly fragrant with the aroma jumping out at me as soon as I twisted the cap. Not exactly sure what guanabana smells like seeing as I've never had it but this smells great, almost like a blend of a bunch of nice-smelling fruits.

T- Follows suit of the nose with a nice melodee of fruits consisting of pears, guava, passionfruit, and other tropical fruits. Nice bold flavors and drinks almost like a tropical juice drink.

M- Light, juicy, extremely easy drinking, fairly low carbonation which adds to the juice-like aspect.

O- I really enjoyed this unique beer and I actually think that it's fairly underrated. It's definitely not your typical beer and it's the only beer that utilizes the guanabana fruit that I am aware of. It was almost like drinking a fruit juice instead of drinking a beer, the drinkability was very good. I could easily sit back and have a couple glasses. I would definitely recommend checking this out.

Poured from tap into snifter at lokal Miami. Apparently the only draft of this in south Florida right now and was part of hunapu (sp) day. Pours a super murky orange white peachy color. Looks pretty nice. Really tropical aromas...passionfruit and pineapple. Taste is very crisp light tropical fruit. Again pineapple and passionfruit dominate. Slight bitter finish to balance the sweet tropical fruit.
Nice brew but not mind blowing...but a great fruit beer.
