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!

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 (10669) - 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

jcartamdg (1987) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a gold/peach color with a paper thin head that disapates into a stable ring around my ccb snifter. Aroma is powerful, strong tropical fruit notes with grapefruit in the back. Taste follows the nose, funk and pepper added. Smooth in body, easy to drink and very refreshing. I already loved guava grove, guava groove takes that amazing saison to a whole new level. Bravo CCB!

ekoerper (589) - Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Aroma: citrus fruit, guava, slightly musty, pepper and light spices. Pours a hazy dark orange color, white head with good retention, leaves decent lacing. Flavor is quite fruity, guava and green fruits, sour apple, some grapefruit, spicy pepper notes, yeast, light malts. Moderate bitterness, some spicy hop character. Fairly full body for a saison, medium-high carbonation. Nice brew.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
In short: A full body and differently fruity rustic ale. Nice beer
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when probably a few months after bottling. Bottle from that thing (human?) called GodOfThunder, thanks
The look: Cloudy glowing amber body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is has phenols, strong rustic character, unusual fruity aroma of unripe green fruits. Body is very very full but foamy enough and also with an extra-lively carbonation, so at the end this heavy body doesn’t feel heavy at all. I must I’ve never had a bite of guava by itself so I cannot say that the beer tasted like guava. To me this unusual fruitiness was a mix of sweet peaches, unripe green bananas and red ruby grapefruits. The rustic character of the Saison yeast was coming through nicely even if a little too phenolic for my taste. A medium sharp bitterness (guava? hops?) in the finish along with a mild acidity. Overall a fun beer, but one 750ml bottle was enough. I’m entering this rating on a Monday after a very boozy week-end… you heard about this line you’re not supposed to cross? That’s my starting line on Friday nights.
