Very last dregs of a 22 oz. bottle, my final note from DLD 2011, at last. Very cloudy, light brown ale, very thin foam. Yes, Iíve got all the bottleís dregs, but that can be the good part. The smell is of a nicely fruity ale. I canít find anything wrong with it. A kind of a Brett character, very fruity, sour, and of course yeasty taste.

75 cl bottle shared. Pours hazy orange with a very beautiful creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, honey, tropical fruits (obviously guava), oranges, some yeast. Not very strong but beautifully complex. Taste is similar with a sweet start, honey notes and tropical fruits again. Fruit not to strong. Nice yeasty acidic dry finish with some bitterness. Sweet, almost sticky aftertaste. Excellent fruity take on belgian style.

"i was so NOT expecting tart and sour in the aroma and flavor. what a pleasing surprise this beer was. the unique sweetness and flavor of guava played a 2nd fiddle (maybe 1B) to the tart funky belgian base. A delicious unique brew!"
