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!

Cloudy orange pour with a big fizzy, thin white head. Lots and lots of carbonation. Aroma was very spicy, yeasty and fruity. Flavors had all of the standard saison flavors mixed in with a well rounded fruit presence, some pepper. Lots of yeasty influence with a light bitter finish. Enjoyable for sure. Share it.

750 ml bottle via trade, thanks Jason. Poured an apple cider body underneath a large foamy white head. Aroma of guava, oranges, tropical fruits, wet bread, zest and rind of citurs fruits. Fuller bodied with loads of carbonation and a lingering bite on the finish. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma sort of dirty and earthy with some citrus and guava along with pepper and slight spiceyness. Blah this is so-so.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2011 750ml bottle courtesy of John.... Pours a hazy, semi-opaque, reddish copper brown and topped with a creamy white head... Fruity aroma guava and bright semi-tart fruit. Lasting fruity impression... Flavors are an exact continuation of the same with vivid notes of guava. Sweet upfront, through the middle, and a dry finish. Body is light to medium but refreshing.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
750 ml bottle courtesy of MikeLuke23. Thanks Mike. Pours a clear copper with a three finger white head that has good retention and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The aroma is big guava, a bit of funk as well as a little bit of grassiness and little pepper. The initial taste is big guava with a bit of sweetness. Then comes some light funk, pepper, and a slight grassiness. The finish is relatively dry with the guava lingering. Medium body. Heavy carbonation. A bit overcarbonated.

75cl bottle, thanks Travlr. Cloudy amber body, medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, guava. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, guava. Medium body, light resin. Seems more like an IPA (or IIPA) than a Saison.
