I am a big fan of KCBC kettle sours. They’re always approachable/refreshing. This beer has a prominent apricot flavor. And that dry, crackery end. That makes it. Nailed it.

A very hazy, thick, cloudy sour. Strong, sweet strawberry jam taste with a hint of sweet guava. Moderately sour. I’m a fan of this brewery, especially the marble of doom series, but I would not have this particular one again.

A: The beer is very cloudy whitish pink in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away, consistently leaving a thick layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of guava are present in the nose along with notes of s
T: The taste has flavors of strawberries with notes of guava.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather refreshing and has a nice mixture of strawberry and guava flavors in the taste. It would definitely make for a good beach beer.

The beer comes in a milky pinkish color.

The flavor hits of straight guava, along with the aroma, with a bit of that strawberry combination coming through. Grainy and wheaty throughout, with a medium tartness. The beer certainly remains flavorful, light, and the tart is a touch restrained catering to session and not necessarily for sour heads expecting more from the style.
