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!

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2012
750ml bottle from smith4498, thanks Jason! Pours a cloudy, orange-amber colored body with a big, three finger-width, dense, foamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty fruity with lots of smooth guava (I guess?), tropical fruits, and florals. Somewhat grainy, bready pils malt backing with a light sweetness, a bit of a yeast spice and a light grassy note. Flavor is similar. Sweeter and fruity up front with a bunch of tropical fruits and this so-called guava. Some florals, a light yeast spice, and a bready pils malt backing. Finishes smooth, fruity, bready, and dry with a moderate bitterness and a hint of tartness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Fairly full body and a lively carbonation. Overall, not a bad saison at all, but a bit too sweet and bready with a spicy bitterness that never seems to fully come together for me. Okay.

Bottle at home shared with friends. Poured a golden orange with a two-finger bright white head. Aroma is funky, tropical, guave, grapefruit, passion fruit, and pineapple. Taste is lightly tart, fruity, light spice, biscuit, grass, clove, and a touch of banana. Full mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Fruit punch, mango and pineapple dominate this great summer beer.

Mora2000 (6050) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of sweet guava in it, as well as some wheat, yeast and orange citrus notes. The flavor is very similar. The beer is very fruity with a lot of guava and apple notes. I also get some nice biscuit malt and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Koelschtrinker (13119) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 10, 2012
Weich hefiger Beginn mit dezenten Fruchtnoten. Ab dem Mittelteil verstärkt kräuterartig, ebenfalls weich, dafür aber breit. Auch wenn das Bier rund ist brennt es kurz im hinteren Mittelteil, dann Aprikosennoten, die starke Karbonisierung stört hier die weitere Aromenbildung. Weicher, dezent herber Abgang. 9/11/9/12/12/11
