Taste is pink guava, cracker, dusty, earth, corn, bitter pine, citrus rind, strange. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, dusty crackery pine and pink guava rind aftertaste. Overall, there is a ton going on in this one. Interestingly different. obguthr (6829) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2017

16 ounce can into lager glass, best before 11/1/2018. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of juicy guava, lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, citrus peel, light pepper/pine, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity hops, guava, and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of juicy guava, lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, citrus peel, light pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of guava, lemon, orange, peach, pear, melon, citrus peel, pepper, pine, cracker, biscuit dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops, guava, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness and carbonation. Very clean on lager flavors, with zero yeasty notes present. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is a very good hoppy fruit pale lager. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops, guava, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and pretty refreshing to drink; with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Not quite IPL, not quite fruit beer; somewhere in between. Very well balanced between hops and guava; nice clean bready malt backbone, with no residual sweetness. A very enjoyable and pretty unique offering. mansquito (7130) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2017
Whole Foods, Gowanus cans: pours gold with a white head. Aroma is light guava, some maltiness, light lemon. Taste is slightly fruity, kind of dry and a bit sweet. Not bad but not too impressive. drfabulous (8813) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 13, 2017
