Poured from a 473ml can.
This one has been in my fridge a few weeks staring at me, well as i an somewhat shy of sours i cracked it today.
A pretty smooth sour and just a hint of Guava.
Bibo below sums it up very well.

473ml can - part of their ongoing Sour series, apparently. Made with, ahhhh, forget it.

This beer pours a murky, medium apricot yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some tiered storm front pattern lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of red grapefruit and lemon citrus peel, a further indistinct tropical fruitiness, gritty and grainy cereal malt, a bit of lacto, and very, very subtle earthy, musty, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is fleshy guava, a mixed domestic citrus fruit bowl, bready and crackery pale malt, spoiled milk, and more well-understated leafy, herbal, and dead floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-supporting frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing really getting in the way of a so-so time at this point the process. It finishes off-dry, with a blended frooty essence seeing us on our way.

Overall - this comes across as a pleasant enough kettle sour, with the guest guava applied by a judicious hand, i.e. juuuuust right. Nice and tart, but not so much so that one is in danger of losing any tooth enamel. Worth checking out, if this is your sort of thing.
