Guido is brewed with honey and raisins. Pours a murky amber after I let a little of the yeast slip into my snifter. Two fingers of fluffy off-white head form on the pour and as it settles becomes craggy but without losing volume. The tiny carbonation bubbles keep this head in place throught the session. Excellent looking ale.

I really don't get a whole lot of maltiness in the nose but as it warms there is some toasted grains, although not much. What is there is a melange of candi sugar, floral honey, and raisins. Toward the back there's a welcomed touch of funk in the form of fields of wildflowers. This beer certainly smells interesting and the aroma seems to be constantly shifting and changing.

The flavors aren't clear cut by any means but do go together well. The flavors are a little muddied but the candi sugar, floral honey, and raisins are all there. A nice caramel maltiness comes through in the flavor that wasn't there in the smell and really brings things together. There is zero alcohol present. Nicely done.

This beer is on the lighter side of medium bodied with a luxurious frothiness as it hits the tongue. The carbonation keeps it light and airy throughout.

This beer goes down very easily for the size. The absence of heat helps this one along.

Wasn't really sure what to expect from this but it's a quality brew with some unique flavors including the touch of funkiness on the finish. I'll be picking up Guido again.
