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.

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.
