On tap at CCB tap takeover OTC.

A: This is one ugly beer. Extremely murky, hazy straw color. Tiny white head that immediately dissipates. No head, looks more like fresh squeezed juice.
S: Hm, now this is interesting. Light malt, super fruity: citrus, papaya, guava, pineapple. I've never had guanabana so I can't compare it to that though.
T: Light, sweet maltiness. Huge pineapple, guava, peach and citrus flavors with a nice hoppy bite. I wouldn't compare it to the bitterness of an IPA though, it tastes more like slightly bitter fruit juice.
M: Super juicy and refreshing. Nice light mouthfeel. Barely any carbonation though.
O: Great, yet unconventional beer. I really enjoyed this, I would gladly drink this all day at the beach.

CCB Guanabana
Colab w/ Wakefield.
Very cloudy Milky yellow in color. Medium sized white head. Some light lacing. Aroma is pleasant, fairly tropical, but not of the NZ hop type of tropical. Bread, yeasty, banana, and unripe passion fruit. Taste is moderately sweet, but mostly bready with significant yeast and green banana. Taste is muddled and dirty. Medium full bodied, creamy, smooth mouthfeel, almost like a melted smoothie.
This is one of the first Wakefield beers I've had the chance to try and, considering the hype surrounding his name, I felt this one was quite the let down.

Cloudy yellow body with little lace and a small head. Lemon and orange aroma for citrus with musty grain and pale malt. light body for the style and moderate carbonation. Very good unfamiliar tropical flavor i cant out my finger on with the fruit being slightly tart and musty. Hops are generic but well represnted.
