Haole Punch

Alvarado Street Brewery (Salinas, CA)

"Our wort is soured with five strains of natural, probiotic bacteria that produce pleasantly tart levels of lactic acid. Once the baseline sourness is established, we take the wort through a normal fermentation just like any other beer, and condition this particular one on passion fruit, orange and guava puree."

Deliciously fruity. Subtly sour. Slightly sweet.
Lots of guava with the orange and the passion fruit more background.
Much more a glass of tropical fruitiness than what would be traditionally thought of as "beer".

ABV 5%
Malt: American 2 Row, Flaked Oats
Yeast: California Ale
Other: Orange, Passion, Guava Puree
