How do you make regular Fiona even better? Apparently it's as easy as adding pink guava. The nose is intensely tropical, as the grapefruit and guava notes combine with dank grasses and just a hint of evergreen to produce an almost ginger-like component. Fantastic aroma. Smooth transition to the tongue as the fruits are soft and juicy, with the hops allowing for a mild, drying bitterness. A subtle sweetness hits mid-palate, but is quickly replaced by pithy fruit peel. I have to give this one the nod over regular Fiona. Absolutely delicious!
