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!

From notes. Pours a beautiful hazy orange with two fingers of off-white head that settles to a half finger head that leaves nice lacing. I defiantly get the guava in the nose, other tropical fruits too, pineapple, grape, a bit of citrus, lemon zest, I also am getting a little clove, coriander, some peppery notes, and sweet malty background. Lots of interesting flavors here. I get more malt then in the nose but that sweet/tart guava still takes the foreground. As it is warming I am getting more sweet flavors, defiantly has some nice spicy flavors.There is a nice bitterness, I kind of miss the big sour flavor from the last batch of guava grove I tryed. Lots of carbonation, still pretty creamy, very zesty, nice clean finish.

Bottle from drowland. Thanks Danny Boy! Pours a decent caramel orange with a nose of pilsner and light tropical fruit. Flavor is grassy and hoppy, with notes of light biscuit and tart fruit. Tingly but average on the tongue. Not bad.

Really glad this was brought back from Florida for me. Great bottle design, fun beer. Tons of fruit aroma and flavor with some yeast too. The saison aspect is more hidden here with tons of guava. Very sweet, a bit sticky, I guess its not really meant to be balanced though. A fun fruit beer that wasn’t overly cloying, still has a nice carbonation and beeryness to it :)

Bottle shared with friends. Poured a hazy amber body with thin white lacing. Aroma is muted guava and a light tart. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated with very light guava notes and the sourness is practically completely gone. My fear is that this particular bottle was spoiled, despite the fact that it was in no way "bad," it didn’t display any of the incredible attributes that the regular guava grove normally exhibits. I’ll have to quest for another bottle of this just to be certain.

25.4 oz bottle. Murky orange with tiny cascading bubbles and an ivory head, slow to settle. Nose is guava, key lime pie and candied grapefruit peel. Carb is vibrant but soft, creamy puree with a lingering tingle. Taste similar to the smell with guava then bitter citrus, honey, rind and sour peach. Perfect with some soft cheeses my daughter picked out.

Wow too much guava. Aroma is flowers, guava, spices, and guava! Taste is a guava bomb with a saison back bone. I guess i should have expected this but wow this is "tubular"

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours hazy amber with a frothy off-white head. Lots of tropical frutiness on the nose that I can only assume is the guava. Lightly spiced, but the fruit is the star here. Tons of fruitiness in the taste too, really fruit forward that crests and then recedes into a light, malty fruitiness. Pretty slick and resiny

750ml bottle from the brewery, split with the Madison crew. Sort of odd funky pungence in the aroma. Murky orange-brown, big creamy off-white head. Lots of guava in the taste, more than the aroma. Fluffy malty backbone. Nice effervescence keeps it quite palatable. Enjoyable, unique, but maybe not quite world-class.
