COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We salute Don Gavino with this tart guava ale, aged in chardonnay barrels to create a balance between the sweetness of the base beer and fruit with the tartness of the lactic fermentation.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Jake. Hazy orange colored beer with a tall off-white head. Sour lemon and tropical fruit aromas. Peach, a bit of brine/salt, oak, and guava. Flavor is decently sour. Kind of briney. Not as much fruit/guava as expected, but some is there. Peach, tropical character, and some oak. Kind of grassy and lemony on the finish. Okay, not great.

[ Bottle ][ vacax ][ Size ][ 10K+OT Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 5/3/14 ]
>> Thanks Jake for the share. Full haze orange pour with larger white foam. Nose is guava paste, saltwater. Taste is sugar up front, sour yuzu, salty, high carbonation. Not bad. More in the saison area vs. sour/wild but okay.

blklab2007 (1941) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle through recent trade. Pour has a bright amber color and a thick one finger white head that fell back to a coating on the surface. Aroma has tart guava, sweet malt, chardonnay barrels, and some fruit skins. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the low side. Flavor has a nice light twang, guava, and chardonnay barrels. The batch of funky guava grove was better for me.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Good wine-style bottle and label. Hazy, apricot bronze-gold. Thin filmy head. Tangy-sweet, lightly chemical, fruity aroma. Butter and jam , exotic, fruity-chemical, spicy flavor. Funky. Thanks to the masked Ratebeerian at Proof for sharing.
