Cigar City Guanabana Ale might not sound like a great beer to purest, but it really is just a well-executed ale. Pours cloudy almost like an unfiltered wheat beer with a fruity nose. Taste is malty with a sweet touch and a fruity aftertaste. Guanabana is a tasty ale with a fruit touch.

Hazy yellowish/gold/orange pour, with a fluffy white head. Aroma of guava, pineapple and a bready note. Very tropical flavor forward, some pineapple, mango, malty, easy drinking. Cool beer and I look forward to the next in the series.

Snifter pour at CCB, poures a muddled light peach color with aromas of pineapple, light strawberry, some grapefruit and a touch of fruit juice. Flavors are a mixture of grapefruit and pineapple with a light bitter aftertatse. Interesting beer overall, mostly because this has a juice mouthfeel and not a beer mouthfeel. Kudos for this great beer, would be perfect with breakfast.

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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big guanabana- I guess- I’ve never had guanabana that I am aware of. I also smell some light leafy herbal notes with some citrus and grapefruit and a banana/ plantain note. Flavor follows with a bit of banana and plantains in the front, some tart character in the mid and a nice tropical fruit, citrus, and grapefruit finish. Light in body, and I agree with gkost how the body is strangely sodalike with lots of tropicality.

Interesting beer. On tap at CCB. Pour is pale yellow, really hazy, with a white head. Nose is big guanabana and grapefruit aromas. Some light pineapple and green banana in there, too. Thicker mouthfeel. Tons of tropical fruit tastes. Similar to aromas with more grapefruit and citrus. Nice!

Snifter pour of hazed light yellow with full finger white head. Nose is mild fruit, some bananas, and guanabana, whatever that is. Flavor is almost wheaty, grapefruit and bananas, and a light sweetness. Nice and refreshing, as stated in the name. Well done
