I picked this one up at Galco's. My experience with guava is limited mostly to some popsicles which I sort of liked, so I'm going into this without a lot of prejudice.
Where and when: purchased April 2009 at Galco's, Los Angeles
Color: Pink. Only slightly cloudy. Cheerful, in a way I don't quite trust.
K-i-C: "It's the color of a pink fluffy bunny."
Scent: Somewhat like pink lemonade, with a berryish tone on top. Just a tiny hint of bitter, like grapefruit. Surprisingly tart.
Taste: Not a very strong taste. The initial taste is mild; watery lemonade. The berry/bitter follows shortly thereafter, but mild. Pretty pleasant, actually. Not very sweet, but not extra tart.
The K-i-C is still twitching, ten seconds after her swig. But she doesn't like guava.
K-i-C: "Tastes like sweetened tin can."
I like it better than that.
Quaff rating: 3. Pleasant but unremarkable. An interesting taste.
Cough rating: 1.0. The slight bitter is (apparently) off-putting.
