16 oz can. Pours a light pink with a large creamy white head. Aroma is some wheat malt and a light fruit juice. Flavor has more of the guava and some peppercorn. Pretty light all around with very little mouth feel. It did have a decent flavor of guava juice but not much beyond that.

I love the color of this beer, a light pink. It is a refreshing summer beer and my favorite one in terms of fruit flavored beers. It smells like guava and has a tolerable sweetness that makes it drinkable.

To like this beer, I need to think about this as the brewer intended. A refreshing, light, popsicle.
With imagination, it becomes a good experience.
Looks like a guava beverage. Smells almost exclusively like guava. Taste introduces the wheat. Feel? After the softness, it is hard find any hefty grain or spicing.
As a fruit drink, I hope to try another flavor on a warm day.

Taste: Slight sour grapefruit and a hint of guava juice, not much wheat taste, clean finish. Funky nose, with some grapefruit fermented notes. Pink hue, unfiltered, with tall pinkish head and some ring lattice. Lite body. Just not my taste.

From batch canned 4/28/17. Pours a cloudy pink-orange with one finger of creamy white head that settles to a thin ring, streaks of lace down the glass. Hey, it's a beer! Smell: wheat cracker, coriander overdrive, guava. Not as much guava as one might expect or hope for. Taste: guava, creamsicle, coriander, wheat cracker. Light bodied, creamy carbonation, quick finish. Refreshing. This works, though not the best guava beer by far.

If you buy this beer just based on knowledge of the word "paleta" and/or the color of the beer (a pink reminiscent of Pepto Bismol), you'll probably be disappointed. The guava is there, but this doesn't drink like the sweet fruit-flavored juice you'd expect; it's still a beer.

Refreshing and tasty if you like guava, there's wheatiness and almost some salt to it. A delicious beer to have when you want to be refreshed. Just don't go into it think it's a guava popsicle, and you'll be fine.

Pours bright pink with a thin soda like white head. This doesn't look like a beer. It looks like pink lemonade.

Smell is pretty much like a paleta. Its disconcerting. Again, nothing like a beer, but its good for what its trying to do?

Taste has notes of guava and and a light cream flavor. Its interesting. Pretty refreshing.

Feel is light, refreshing, decently carbonated.

This is a weird weird beer. However, for what its trying to do, its actually solid.
