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.

Fruity and sour finish with lemon juice, guava, peach, hints of oak, barnyard and grain. Light to medium bodied, soft to average, small bubble carbonation.

77ships (8104) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2016
Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Epic beer Tasting 2016”. Black, mocha bubbles. Nose is rather metallic with very heavy roast. Taste is bitter roast, herbal, smoke is rather vegetable, leaves, bitter hop. Syrupy & heavily roasted body. Okay but not really all that for me, in general I don’t get the very high ratings that this brewery gets.

Unde (890) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Hazy yellow beer with smallish head on top. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits, sourness, tart. Lemon zest, sourness, grapefruit and sweet tropical fruits. The first sip was like biting a guava, but sadly the moment was gone and couldn’t pick it again. Soft mouth feel with medium carbonation. Again really nice sour.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2016
August 2015 Bottling
Tasted on 5/20/16 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours crystal-clear golden orange with a thick, rocky white head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving some residue along the inside of the glass. The nose has some savory spice, soft lemon, light, nuanced tropical fruit, along with a bit of basement and spicy yeast aroma, and just the lightest hint of vanilla. The flavor is nicely tart and sour, plenty of lemon, with all of the tropical fruit and savory spice barely coming through, and the funky yeast adding another element. The body is light with just above average, fizzy carbonation, and a medium tart, lightly spiced and funky finish.
