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!

Super carbonated; more saisony than sour. Carb comes at the expense of fruit intensity. Disappointing after the glory of the regular (soured) Guava Grove.

Had this on tap in the tasting room and it was very tart but much more consistent in flavor than the bottled versions over previous years. Overall a great sour.

Entre deux plongées dans la mer, une autre Cigar City me semble être nécessaire pour reconstruire les muscles endoloris par la baignade. Cette Guava Groove trouve rapidement preneur. Partagée en 4, nos verres montrent un liquide bien orangée et une tête mousseuse des plus tenaces. Le nez est assez explosif en notes tropicales. Je sens la banane et les fruits exotiques. Les herbes sont bien présentes de même que des épices probablement données par la levure. Sur les papilles, nous sommes tous ravis par ces saveurs bien tranchantes et acidulées. Je trouve qu’elle est largement fruitée par les agrumes et par d’autres choses qui m’échappent un peu. La levure est bien typée et représentative du genre. La bouche est bien pétillante et bien pleine. La texture bien caressante affiche des propriétés huileuses. La finale se fait sur des notes de levure et sur des notes amères qui attaquent docilement les tissus de ma bouche. Cette bière fruitée est vraiment trop facile à boire. Tous s’entendent ici pour dire qu’elle est rafraîchissante et assez bonne. Bien content d’avoir pu acheter la dernière bouteille disponible au marché Epicure de Sunny Isles.

A hazed murky golden amber ale with a thick collapsing off white head. In aroma, a sweet sourish malt with light Brett notes, herbaceous, nice. In mouth, a nice gueuze like offering, with ground cherries, light caramel, smooth sourness, well done.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks burg326). Looks good; a cloudy orangish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; HELLA guava! Tastes like it smells with a fairly sweet backbone. Good on the palate with a nice, lively finish. Good beer.

750 ml. split into snifters, I did not read the side of this bottle and I literally thought this was going to be an underwhelming sweet bomb, whoa, way wrong. Tarty nose gets me thinking farmhouse then I read that this is a saison styled beer and I am happy. Cloudy orange pour with a small bit of white head. Really cool balance of funk v. sweetness, the yeast was screaming tart out and the guava was saying stay sweet and they met in the middle for a cool mouthfeel and drinking expedition, different and I really enjoyed this. Fuck reagonomics though, seriously. Cheers to Cigar City on this unique brew. Side note, I kept singing Garden Grove (but as Guava Groove) by Sublime as I drank this.

Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast and slight tart fruit, taste follows. Thick and bitter on the tongue, maybe not made for aging.

Good carbonation hazy gold fluffy white head. Earthy spice aroma with guava fruit on the end. Very effervescent fizzes a lot. Tastes guava and said on earthy spice. Held up better than I thought but never a fan of it.

750mL courtesy of a markwise, thanks Mark. It pours up deep copper with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up spicy yeast and smooth guava fruit and a murmur of tartness in the background. The taste is mildly tart and prickly with the help of a high level of carbonation. I get spicy yeast notes and some smooth sweet guava fruitiness.
