Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 11th January 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very cloudy pink guava juice colour with a two finger slightly pinkish white head that had decent retention while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Tart, fruit punch, tropical fruits, raspberry, guava, wheat with hints of pineapple.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, wheaty, fruit punch, raspberry, guava, mango, pineapple, with hints of lime.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I like it when Carbon drop a lot of fruit into their beers. Much like Meringue-Utang, this was very fruity and very easy to drink while maintaining the wheatiness from a Berliner Weisse. Great fruit punch flavours with raspberry and guava dominating.
