3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Mike! Murky mahogany, big sediment chunks, beige gray head that settles quick. Aroma is vinegar, mild tropical fruit, some cherries and lactic tartness. Taste is similar, vinegar and oak sour notes, puckering with cherries, tropical fruit, lemon-like acidity that works the saliva glands. Sour and delicious! Dry finish, thin mouth feel. Very good beer, though I really donít pick up any guava at all, as the label states.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a deep clear reddish color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of tart notes with some light vinous notes and some oak. Taste is a complex mix of guava with some tart and oak notes with some light vinous notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nice level of complexity with some good drinkability with the nice guava presence.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade. Pours a murky brown with a scant head. Aromas of oak and some light citrus. Taste is tart and semi dry. Flavors of sour apple, some orange, oak, moss and a slight funk. Perhaps a touch of vinegar. Alcohol is hidden. Tart, lip smacking finish. I want to like this more than I do, but in the end itís just another mediocre Bruery offering.

Pours opaque chocolate brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma has woody and sour fruit notes supported by a subtle malty tone. Flavor is quite sour, enough to make your mouth pucker and your eyes dance. Fruity and woody notes dominate. Mouthfeel is firm and lively. Pucker up and enjoy!
