Guava Libre from California's 'The Bruery' is a guava, lactose and vanilla cream ale.

While this might sound like an odd combination, this imperial cream ale tastes like a tropical cream soda. Inspired by a Cuban guava pastry, Guava Libra is a refreshing sweet beer for the summertime. The vanilla and lactose flavoring provide a rich, custard-like flavor ribbon throughout the beer and the guava delivers a tropical sour punch. At 7.5% ABV, the beverage will require you to keep an eye on your consumption.

For awhile, many craft breweries were making strong, bold flavored beers that could be seen as unapproachable by some consumers. The movement toward a sweeter, more diverse experimental flavor profile has allowed for beers like Guava Libre to come through and hold a spot in the market.
