As a Star Wars fan I just had to try this guava, coconut and lime sour from Brew York and I was not disappointed. It looks, smells and tastes like it could be served at the Mos Eisley Cantina.
It's a hazy golden yellow beer with a small, loose, rapidly vanishing head that ends up looking like a glass of fruit juice. It smells like juice too with a delicious fruity aroma of guava, sour fruit and a hint of coconut. It has a strange sweaty smell too so it's not an overly appealing fragrance.
Thankfully, it didn't taste sweaty! The mix of guava, lime and coconut is delicious and although the tangy fruit flavour isn't mouthpuckering, it's definitely a sour. It has a medium body and low, prickly carbonation so it has a smooth mouthfeel like fruit juice but with an added bit of fizz.
Very fruity and refreshing, it tastes quite boozy and the flavour develops as you drink it to really bring out the lime and coconut flavour that had originally been overpowered by the guava.
I'm not sure I would call a sour a beer so they're not my usual tipple but with a Star Wars theme, it had to be done. I'd recommend trying it but I wouldn't necessarily have another one as it was a bit of a gimmick for me.
