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!

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!

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.

brokensail (10635) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - 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

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 Bottle from the source, courtesy of....me! Thanks. Cloudy light amber, large off white head. Aroma of slightly fetid grapefruit, white pepper. Taste is bitter fruit and pineapple core. Abrasive but interesting.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
A hazed murky golden amber ale with a thick collapsing off white head. In aroma, a sweet sourish malt with light Brett notes, herbaceous, nice. In mouth, a nice gueuze like offering, with ground cherries, light caramel, smooth sourness, well done.
