COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Giant cell phones. White pantsuits. Reagonomics. The 80′s was all about excess. We tip our neon trilby hats to mentality with this beer. Not satisfied with the amount of guava in our Guava Grove saison, we doubled the amount of fruit in Guava Grove to create a truly radical beer fit for any dude or dudette. Totally tubular!

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 Bottle @ Granny’s house in Exira, Iowa, courtesy of markwise. Thanks again Mark! Cloudy, orange appearance with a foamy off-white head. Quite heavy guava juicy, citrusy, mild barnyard nose. Big tart, very citrusy guava, slightly spicy, mild yeasty flavor. Tangy, guava aftertaste. Quite good but it does have an intense guava flavor.

Tap at FITR. Hazy orange pour, chunky with big white head. Loads of guava fruit, nice Belgian esters and hint of pepper in aroma. Fruity, guava tastewith nice peppery notes from the Belgian yeast. Quite a nice brew.

On draft at Fruit in the Room. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Nose is huge guava. That really dominates it. Yep. Lots of guava. There are also some tropical fruit, guava paste, guava cookies, and hearts of guava in there as well. Flavor is similar- tropical guava, nice guava, and a gentle hint of other tropical fruit. Medium to full in body, and definitely utilizing the bugless yeast. Not sour. I feel like a warrior who has vanquished the guava and at his heart.

On draft at cigar city. Poured a cloudy orange with aromas of guava, citrus, and yeast. Had a nice prominent tart but not too tart guava flavor throughout the drink. A nice and refreshing beer.

#200 Cigar City rating! Draft at FITR. Pours a murky brilliant orange. Nose is fresh fruit, guava, cane sugar and yeast. Flavor is heavy guava, citrus/mellon flavors, yeast, slightly tart. Very nice. Big fruit flavor without cloying sweetness.

Bottle from the brewery. Released today. Pours a rusty orange color with a thick off-white head that settles as a lasting thin layer on top. This smells like I just cut open a fresh guava. There is no mistaking the fruit in this one vs some of the batches of Guava Grove. The aroma as a whole is quite tropical, showing other notes of peach, mango, like an exotic fruit cocktail, with some light dust. The flavors are sweet and slightly tart, but not at all in a buggy, infected, acetic kind of way. As a fan of the earlier batches of Guava Grove, that’s a really good thing. In fact, this really isn’t all that funky. The tartness seemingly coming from the natural fruit flavor. The finish is slightly dry, which is welcomed with all the sweet fruit, but still plenty of lingering tropical notes. The body is a little thick, but what the hell can you expect when this much guava is shoved in a bottle. Overall I enjoyed this one; a little sweet and heavy but in the same mold as the earlier batches of Guava Grove. You better like guava though! Groovy.
