On tap at Avery Strong Ale Fest 2013, listed as "Missionary Position", made with guava and pineapple. semi hazy dark copper with a malty, meaty aroma like some pretzel and smoked sausage, with a touch of Belgian dusty malt and something like grains of paradise. Flavor is kinda fruity with some tropical tones like grains if paradise and mango and guava, but also with some earthy toffee Belgian maltiness, very sweet and smooth and kinda dusty.

Tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2013. Pours a hazy orangish brown appearance with a small off white head. The aroma is very sweet and fruity and really packed with tons of tropical fruits, particularly passionfruit and guava. Likewise, it’s really surprising how the guava takes over in the flavor over the caramel and brown sugar. It was kind of fun to try and I would like to try it again.

Ratman197 (9724) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
On tap at Avery Strong Ale Fest poured a hazy orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of guava, straw, carmel, pineapple and a hint of spice. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, straw, pineapple and light spice with a smooth lingering fruity carmel finish.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with small off-white head. Aroma of guava, green raisins, peach, caramel, and passion fruit. Flavor of guava, Belgian yeast, kiwi, mango, grain, and candi sugar.

thirdeye11 (5541) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2011
(Draught at Avery - GABF) very opaque, juicy orange color with excellent tan head and lacing. Nose of pineapple, guava and peach. Taste of guava puree, peach, light grain, very mild alcohol and plums. Very real fruit juice linger, soft but abundant carbonation with a great linger of some sweet grain. Nice beer!

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Pours a very murky hazed muddy deed amber with spotty head and lace. Aroma is very juicy like the lilikoi, fruity esters,belgian yeast, spice, guava particles, tropical notes, passionfruit, kiwi, more clementine. Flavor is jackfruit- fleshy guava, gummy, fruit juice, gritty grain with fruit mix, kiwi, orange, citrus, medium toffee sweetness, belgian candi sugar, and a spicy juicy finish. Strange but not bad.

brokensail (10841) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color, sort of leaning towards brown, with a fairly long lasting off-white head. S: A really great fruit aroma to this beer. Fresh guava that is slightly tart with oranges and passion fruit, maybe a bit of kiwi. Sweet candi sugar and slight spice notes. T: The flavor is pretty good also (though not quite as great as the nose). Again, plenty of fruit character with the guava really coming through as well as a fair amount of malt. Some noticeable alcohol, too. M: The body is medium with a fairly lively carbonation that pricks the tongue nicely. D: It’s too bad the flavor didn’t quite match up with the nose, but enjoyable either way. This one was very pleasant indeed.

Wow! I would never have paired beer with guava. This is delicious. The fruit sticks to the tongue without being cloying. Easy to drink.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 8, 2010
On tap. Pours with a very murky, amber brown body with an off-white head that stays. Aroma is, wow, lilikoi/passion fruit, gauva, caramel, candi sugar. Over powering fruit. Flavors are strong fruit, with a slightly soggy malt that left of the beer. Kind of detracts from the fruit. Decent sweetness. Nice tang. All fruit. Light clove. Lively bubbles.
