Served in a pint glass

This beer pours a murky, pale yellow color and is topped with less than an inch of tan head that leaves little lacing.

It has a wonderful guava aroma and smells tart.

It tastes just as good as it smells. There is a nice tart, pink guava flavor. The brett works well with the flavors. I hate brett IPAs. This is a good addition of brett.

Thin bodied with a dry mouthfeel

Fruity and refreshing. The dryness from the brett leaves me wanting another sip immediately after a sip.

Pours a gold color with a minimal head that disappears quickly. Aroma of tart tropical fruits. Taste is tart tropical fruit with a hint of sweetness. Crisp and dry.

Pours yellow-orange with a thin white head. The nose and taste are guava, lemon, and light salinity and funk. Medium tartness and light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and carb for the style. Overall, pretty good. Refreshing and tart.

White head on a light opaque cider like color. Subtle notes of guava, sour notes, and a small bit of Brett in the aroma. Tastes like a standard sour gose, lactic acid, with some candied guava, light Brett notes, and vanilla oriented maltiness. This isn't a tremendously Brett forward beer but it's fairly standard within the vein of a Gose or Berliner Weisse so fans of that style would enjoy this.

355 ml can, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger ABV is 6.3%. Hazy yellow colour, small white head of poor retention. Aroma of lactic acid and guava. Very sour flavour, loads of lactic acid (too much for me) and guava. One-dimensional. Not my cup of tea.

Good milky funk. Worth the pesos asked for it. Could become a goto guava swill.

But all that said above requires a small disclaimer: that I will drink/eat anything Guava. This is only above-average in guava-talk.

Above average in appearance and nose, but packs a flavorful punch it hits your right in the sour loving gut ... Just the right amount of sour and funk and with a higher ABV than many in this category .... Very nice

12oz can. Stamped on can bottom is 'CANNED ON 01/12/21'.
Cloudy, straw colored body. Persistent white cap. Big swirling display of rising bubbles.
Aroma of guava with lactic acid.
Taste is lemonade like, with guava. Slightly tart and a big sweet fruit flavor.
Frothy mouth feel, with lots of bubble carbonation.
Not funky, but is a palate cleanser, with its sweet fruit and massive bubble show.

another cheap and quick tasting prairie sour, even though this one claims to have some brett, this element is really under developed, close to totally lost to an even moderate bacterial acidity which defines this, although i like the flavor quite well, i think the beer is somewhat uninteresting and also relatively uninspiring from a quality standpoint, still hold out hope for each of these based on how good all their beer used to be, but i just have to accept that this is a different brewery now, straight up. the guava is cool, natural in nose and taste, resonates with the lactic pucker pretty well, and is always appreciated in isolation, not with every tropical fruit under the sun as is so common for it in beer. this has an almost gose-like mineral profile which i like and is drying in that way, lactic pucker, light wheat, berliner-esque too i guess. a few things that kind of let me down were the look and mouthfeel of this, near flat from the tap, yellow and hazy with some sediment, no head at all, and then a little less than fully carbonated on the palate, which i do not like in a sour, this needs more life than it has, the natural tropical flavor of the guava, which is its main success, kind of demands it. this isnt good enough to be from prairie as i remember them at their finest, but its also not bad, and the guava and the level of sour in here work really well. more brett would make this better to me, although its plenty dry. more than anything i am glad to have this on tap here in idaho, but this is another one that makes me miss the old days of prairie...
