Part of the brewery's ongoing Magnificent Mullet series (and their obsession with tart, sour or wild ales) gets off to a flier before you've even opened it. In the centre of the label, surrounded by said mullet and where McGuyver's head would be is an open guava that makes it look like the enduringly popular TV star has had his face cloven in two with an axe. Such prettiness continues in the glass with the beer pouring as a cloudy light yellow with the purdiest of foamy white heads. That they've used some lactobacillus to add a touch of pucker is apparent from the first whiff, while the fruit is more prominent than the watermelon was in Melon Gibson. The result is a slightly tart, fruity witbier that's refreshingly dry through its sweetness, a little bit funky and rather moreish.
