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 shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Thanks! Pours unclear gold with a creamy, white head. The aroma smacks of oxidation, with touches of pale wood and rindy citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor with mellow alcohol, tangerine, spicy pine. Medium to full bodied with average to lively carbonation. Lightly tangy on the finish, some citrus fruits, orange, tangerine. OK overall.
