On-tap at Blue Palms

A: The pour is a dark amber color, sort of leaning towards brown, with a fairly long lasting off-white head.

S: A really great fruit aroma to this beer. Fresh guava that is slightly tart with oranges and passion fruit, maybe a bit of kiwi. Sweet candi sugar and slight spice notes.

T: The flavor is pretty good also (though not quite as great as the nose). Again, plenty of fruit character with the guava really coming through as well as a fair amount of malt. Some noticeable alcohol, too.

M: The body is medium with a fairly lively carbonation that pricks the tongue nicely.

D: It's too bad the flavor didn't quite match up with the nose, but enjoyable either way. This one was very pleasant indeed.

Saw this one on tap today at Avery and, being a huge Reverend fan, I had to give it a try. This one is a quad with guava. Pours a lightly murky orange color, with a huge fruity, spicy nose. On the palate, I get tons of guava, along with orange, which cuts the sweetness and alcohol that is present in the base beer (although I really like that alcohol and sweetness).
