Aroma is lemon, tropical fruit notes, some tannic wood aroma. Dark red brown off white head spotty lacing. Taste sour, tart, tannic wood, lemon, tropical fruits. Kind of weird sour seemingly based in a Flanders style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle thanks to SaucerSam) cloudy as hell, yeasty floaters, ruby-amber. Nose of strawberry, lightly acetic, wet barrel, pedio/lacto. Taste of oak, cranberry, light cherry, tart without vinegar, medium body, cherry and toasted oak linger. Liking the finish a lot.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Top notch appearance: dark red body below head and lace which are stubborn beyond reason.
Aroma holds tart fruits and a wine-like oaky character. Guava gets lost on my palate, malt feels slightly out of place, bing cherries dance awkwardly by themselves in the corner. The components are here, they just need to work together better. Wish the fruit shone through more. Needs work.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very fruity with notes of cherries and berries. There is quite a bit of acidity as well with both lactic and acetic notes. Some oak notes and only light guava characteristics.
Pours a cloudy brown with lots of ruby highlights. The brown is more of a burnt amber. Tan head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges and a thin film on top. Low lacing.
Flavor is very acidic with quite a bit of acetic acid notes and lighter lactic character. There is a lot of fruitiness with cherries and berries again dominating. I donít really get much guava except in the finish. Quite a bit of oak character but only light dark malt notes. Medium low bitterness. A bit of a fusel alcohol note in the finish. Finish is nice and dry and as it warms the guava becomes more apparent.
Medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Medium low astringency and moderate alcohol warmth.
Overall an alright sour but it needs some fine tuning. This is one of my least favorite sours from the Bruery. The guava doesnít mix great with the acetic acid notes.
