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!

ekoerper (596) - 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 (6103) - 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.

Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Sample from bottle. It pours cloudy amber, with a thin white head. The nose is fruit salad sweets, floral and tropical fruit - pineapple, orange, mango and guava. The taste is very fruity - orange, pineapple, guava, floral, dough, earth and a touch of spice. Medium body and moderate carbonation. An enjoyable fruity saison.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin white head. A barnyard aroma with lemon, white pepper, mango and guava. Similar flavours with a fruity guava and starfruit quality before a dry saison yeast finish. Very highly carbonated with a foamy mouth-feel. Not bad.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk at the Danish Invasion tasting. Clear orangey gold colour with a thick frothy white head. Big saison funk, black pepper and yeast esters with a massive sharp fruitiness (guava?) also. Nice juicy tropical front, big grapefruit, dry yeastiness, sherbet fizz, ultra-dry, big juiciness and a touch of sour with a lovely, drying guava bitter finish. Far too fizzy, but still tasty.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2012
bottle 11/25/11 black friday tasting. golden orange color with an off white head. surprising amount of guava on the nose.... mixed with black peppery spice, yeast, alcohol and something vegetal. the flavor is the same but with added notes of dried apricots, cardboard and a tart finish... something in here just doesn’t work for me.... it is a bit on the sweeter side but i can look past that...old bottle maybe? the carbonation is fizzy and proper. 6/4/5/3/13

brokensail (13270) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 10, 2012
The beer is sort of orange in color with a tall white head. A really nice fruitiness to the nose. Lots of banana and guava to be found. Pretty decent amount of yeast to it as well. Sweet malt (mostly bread) can also be found. There is a mild but noticeable acidity throughout the flavor. A touch of lemon to go along with banana and guava fruit notes. Sweet bread along with yeast and a touch of sugar to it as well.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours pinkish orange with fizzy white head. Aroma has lots of citrus and farmhouse notes. Flavor has nice fruity/citrus esters with a nice pepper alcohol spiciness, with off-dry finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with high fizzy carbonation. Overall, tasty brew!
