750ml bottle, batch 1. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a hazy light golden yellow body; this bottle had a ton of carb and in fact did gush when I pried off the cap. So watch out for that. Big 3 finger white head, took a few seconds to settle down, good retention and no lacing. Smell is straight up guava with heavy lactic acid and a touch of oak, passion fruit tartness also off the charts. Delicious aroma that makes my mouth water a little bit, too. Flavour is similarly parotid-shivering lactic acid, tons of guava flavour with plenty of passion fruit tartness to take the edge off the lactic acid, not yogurty by any means, light grain and wheat, a bit of that farmhouse funk. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, plenty of carbonation, passion fruit tartness dominates the finish.
