Bottle shared at the December iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Pours orange with a light tan head. Big fresh guava aroma with some lemon zest notes. Flavor is the same as the smell basically, big tropical guava with funk becoming more apparent as it breathes.

750ml bottle...big, bubbly, funky, fruity beer that was all Belgian although not quite Saison tasting. I really liked this brew, however Shortís Capt. Fantasy pear Saison blows this away...or maybe I just like pears better than guavas...

Bottle shared with Harrisoni post Borefts Beer Festival 3, Day 1. Very hazy amber beer, good bubbly white head. Light crispy palate. Seltzer minerals. Nice fresh tasting guava, a bit mild though. Semi dry finish. Nice enough!

Pours thick orange amber with a big creamy off white head. The aroma is malty with a lot of fruity notes from the guava. The flavor brings my palate big notes of Belgian yeast, like an abbey dubbel or sweeter saison with the sweet guava notes rounding out the brew. The body is pretty thick as well.

Lots of nice guava in the aroma but a very dry flavor with some fusel alcohol and harsh phenolics. Gets a little hard to drink in the finish.

750 thanks to markwise. Big tropical fruit saison. Tons of guava. This really outdoes Guava Grove. Sweetness is nice and fruit like. Very tasty.

Bottle shared with Mattyb83 pours cloudy amber/orange with a large khaki head. Not sure what Guava smells or tastes like but if it is the fruit aroma Iím unable to identify here, and I assume it is, I like it. Yeast and spices also present in the nose. Taste is fruit, most be the Guava, bready yeast, spice, with a mellow tartness. Yum!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy, golden, apple cider color with a large white head. Quite an herbal aroma and some fruit character present. Tingles the nose each time I take this in. Taste is fruity, herbal, maybe a slight medicinal character. What the fuck does guava taste like? Is this it? Itís pretty good if it is. Much better flavor than the guava grove. I love prickly carbonation and this is pretty much perfect for that. Really enjoyable.
