Deviating from conventional brewing methods and inspired by historic brewing techniques, we created our Pure Guava Petite Sour. Blending farmhouse brewing traditions with an old world souring technique this rustic wheat beer is brewed with the addition of oats and spiced with coriander and sumac. Fermented entirely in our distinct oak foeder, Pure Guava is an unfiltered, golden wild ale with tropical fruit aromas and bright citrus flavors created by a proprietary Brettanomyces strain. This beer is bottled with the natural yeast, if cellared in a cool dark place it will develop more complex Brett characteristics and evolve for years to come. Drink as you would a wheat beer, cloudy with the yeast in suspension. Please enjoy this unique offering in your favorite stemmed glassware and allow the beer to breathe and open up as you swirl it in your glass.

Pours cloudy apricot with a low white head. Aromas of farmhouse, citrus, peach, guava, mango, oak, green apple, green grapes. Taste is sour fruit with a nice balance between fruity and tart though I could use some more depth in this. Still, quite nice!

Pale golden hue, good clarity, fizzy white head is quickly gone. Smells like old champagne, sweet fruit juice, rind, straw, barnyard, peppery. In the flavor, a generic tropical note -- not clear guava. Flavor progression is nice -- tartness gives way to flavor and sweetness. Earth. Lightly fruity, a little prickly pear. Hint of sweetness provides balance, a hit of grainy malt, full of flavor at the finish. Just enough tartness to play off the sweeter fruit juices.
