Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Fruitlands - Passion Fruit And Guava

Fruitlands is tart, fruity, and frighteningly delicious. The sour, salty base beer lays down the funky refreshment, while a heavy dose of passion fruit and guava turns the whole thing into a wall-to-wall tropical fruit fiesta. It's a marvelous mix of elements that collides with your mouth like a fruit-filled asteroid of flavor traveling at the supersonic speed of party.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head.
S: Moderate aromas of passionfruit are present in the nose along with notes of guava.
T: The taste follows the smell and has moderate to strong flavors of tropical fruits—with passionfruit standing out in front of the guava. Little if any sourness is perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed the aromas and flavors of tropical fruits in this beer, but there wan't really any sourness so it didn't taste like a true nose.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is excellent. Lacing is very good. Tart, tropical fruit aroma. Definitely get passion fruit and guava. Very tart taste with same taste profile. Smooth and light bodied with heavier carbonation.

Had on tap. This beer is fruity, tart, and surprisingly salty. I struggle to find the salt in a lot of goses, but not this one. Slight wheaty aftertaste. Fairly average overall for a fruited gose.

16oz can poured into a pilsener glass…

=====

Look
One finger bubbly white head dissipating quickly to even/minimal lacing. Color is cloudy and a pale apricot.

Smell
Guava, mango, and a little funk

Taste
Big guava, followed by lingering sour grapefruit bite

Mouthfeel
Very fizzy, light-medium body

=====

Overall
A very enjoyable, drinkable, tropical fruit beer. When in the mood, I’ve purchased single cans several times. It’s not heavy (in ABV or body) and is nice and refreshing like a Calistoga sparkling fruit juice. Canned on Aug. 4 (~60 days old). Purchased 16oz can for $2.50 in Southern California.

Pours a hazy golden yellow.
Taste starts off a bit salty, and some guava and lemon flavors sneak in.
Not a super puckering sour, it goes down quite smooth!

Appearance: Pours clear and golden colored with a one finger head; wisps of lacing

Smell: Passion fruit dominant, with lemon and guava tones

Taste: Lactic tartness with passion fruit and lemon tones forward, the guava fills through the middle with just a hint of salt in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The passion fruit really makes this Gose but the subtle guava tones round it out
