On tap at Colada in Fort Lauderdale. Excellent fruit based blonde. The guava flavor isn't overwhelming, just subtle throughout, which is what I really like about this beer. The fruity blondes can sometimes just get drowned in fruit flavor that overwhelms the beer. This is really well done and wish they brewed it more than once a year.

On tap at Churchville Inn.

Hazy golden-yellow pour with a white cap. Grainy aroma, fruit rind. In the taste, pale maltiness typical of the style, some yeast, unripe guava and melon rind. Not bad, but not overly flavorful as some of FB's other fruited brews. Bitterness on the finish. Light and fairly crisp mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation. Not bad overall.

Neat beer that tastes like straight carbonated guava juice. Only light pale malts in the background here, and it really highlights the big fruit notes. Interesting and refreshing (and slightly delicious) in the hot weather. But don't expect much malt/hop/yeast/beer flavors to come through the big fruit flavors.

On tap at Das Biergarten. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy light orange. Decent lacing and a medium collar.

Smell - Grain. Light guava tropical fruitiness. Doesn't really smell like much.

Taste - Grain up front. Then the guava kicks in. Dominates the flavor. Grainy again the back end. Light bitterness. Weird bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light. Well carbonated.

Overall - It's pretty dull. Guava and not much else.
