COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The idea behind this series is to tap into fruit drinks popular in Latin culture. Each entry in the series will feature a different fruit and possible blend of others. First up is Guanabana Ale. We made this beer in collaboration with J Wakefield Brewing. This beer is very light but very drinkable and the guanabana is huge.

Draft in a snifter at Sybarite Pig. Pours very light yellow, extremely hazy and thick. Almost looks like it would be a banana smoothie. Aroma was mild with citrus and light yeast. The taste...not for me. Very mild, almost no flavor. It had a papaya flavor that was really lacking any body. I would like it I think if it were a Berliner sour. Sorry CCB, not for me.

On tap at Tap 42. Murky peach fuzz color pour with a white head. I am assuming what I smell is guanabana. A kind of salty fruit highlight with mild citrus and acidity. Easy drinking with a good mouthfeel, body, and carbonation.

Draft at Hunaphu Day. Cloudy golden pour with a soapy white head. Aroma of guava, banana, over ripe pineapple and lactic acid tartness. Slightly milky body with tropical fruitiness and some sourness. Very easy drinking and refreshing.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewery taproom (Tampa, FL). Nice! Pours a richer deeper dulled golden yellow hue, good haziness, frothy whitish head dies to a film, laces small. Darker dulled body. Aromas are gentle tartness, lemongrass, and herbal earth, grass. Gentle wheat, bready malts, straw. Tropical fruit sweetness at times, flashes of mango. Initial is lighter end of the fold, touches of malty girth give tropical fruit, lemongrass, bready malts and lemon rind. Some grass, herbal elements. Middle is a touch sweeter, girthy, bready and cereal grains, some straw, dough, gentle apple, tropical fruit. Mellow dryness grows into backend and finish. A nice dryness, almost bitter. Tropical fruit, papaya, mellow bready malts, straw, dryness. Fun, a touch girthy in the middle, a bit more dry and bitter into the finish. Not bad. Loses itself a bit.

This beer was GREAT! So refreshing with super juicy tones of guanabana, while the finish was slightly hoppy and bitter. Overall it was refreshing while being sorta filling at the same time. Cheers!

Draft. Very cloudy, light orange pour, with minimal head and no lacing. Aroma of guava and black pepper. Tastes more like a sour cider than a beer - bitter fruit, definitely some spicy hops in the background. Drinks like a 5%. Refreshing, but look elsewhere if you want capital-B beer.

brystmar (1289) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
My first Wakefield beer! On tap at CCB. Pours off-colored, opaque yellow with minimal head. Ripe fruits as guava leads the way, bitter fruit peels / rind on the back end. Yeast is bright, yet the carb level remains low to provide a creamy mouthfeel. Delicious, refreshing, sessionable.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2013
At CCB on Hunahpus Eve. Snifter. Pours cloudy yellow with no head. Looks like pineapple juice. Smells like fruit mixed in with a light lager. Little dirty smelling. Bit of earthiness. Flavor up front is very light and fruity. Easy drinking and pleasant. But the finish is weird. Dirty finish nearly like drinking a Keystone Light. Unfortunate. Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Man. I wanted to like this but it is just a crappy finish.

Tap. No head. Cloudy like cider. Smells fruity like tangerine... tastes like... bitter. This is a beer? Its like a failed cider from a bastardized fruit. Tastes like rind from a citrus fruit. Light.

Draft at CCB. Pours a lightly cloudy orange color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet citrusy tropical fruits, light grainy notes, and a solid amount of bitterness. Taste is very fruity, tropical fruits, light sweetness, mild grain. The guanabana is apparently what a lot of the tropical fruit hop notes taste like, because this was like a less hoppy IPA, but still with a ton of tropical fruit notes, minus the bitterness. Really awesome beer, favorite of day 1 at CCB.
