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.

Pours a dark orange with a long lasting thick head. Smells of sour white grape followed by a hint of funkiness. Smells like a Belgium sour. Taste of mild white grape and guava hit the palate first followed by a powerful Chardonnay character. Very tart and finishes dry. A very wine like finish although the tartness lingers.
