4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 Big thanks to TampaBrews. Aroma of farmhouse yeast funk, carbonation, gumball, and citrus, all very well harmonized. Amazing, really. Hazy orange pour, effervescent. Initially large off-white head simmers down to an everlasting film of bubbles, temporary spots of lace. Flavor is noticeably tart, then dry, turning lightly sweet in the finish. Gumball yeasty funk forms the main base of the flavor’s complexity, fruity elements, citrus and something grapey that must be guava, abound on the front, finsihing up sweeter, floral, and lightly chalky. Very lively palate, medium body, dry but only slightly astringent. Will stop gushing now and finish my glass.

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!"

Lost my notes on this. Shared by Stevencon @ Proof, upstairs - thanks. Well-aged body. Sour - aroma and flavor. Good label on a wine bottle. Need to re-rate some day, as it is I’m trying to recall a night’s drinking after a few.
