Bottle courtesy of fogdog in the perfect 10 trade. Dripping in guava, nice saison yeast aromas, little peppery and musky, with a faint hint of brett. Very lively carbonation, fresh cut guava, dry and again a little more bretty flavor. Crisp and clean. Really delicious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks so much Sean! Iím so grateful to have an opportunity to try this! Intense Brett-like awesome fruit aroma, with the guava showing really strongly in the backend of the nose. Minerals, a nip of sulfur, sweet cool papaya, lots of fresh guava juice, a good bit of peppercorn. Itís floral, fruit, spicy, glowing and amazing. Pours an intensely fuming glowing golden orange-peach, with a silky, lacing white head. The flavor speak Strongly of hay-like cottony Brett, with spiciness, a touch of ethyl acetate and then surprising bitterness. Some alcohols fume and the guava is kind of lost. A bit of sweetness gives a sense of orange-blossom honey. The brett is really dominant and generically spicy, edging bitter. Carbonation is explosive and refreshing. Itís hard to keep the flavor profile on the palate for too long. Extra-super-dry. The Brett character is nice. With guava being so noticeable in the nose, I was really hoping for a good dose in the flavor, but it didnít come through. A little less carbonation and a little more residual sugar and this might ooze a denser flavor profile. In the end, a delicious, very fun beer.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Like I canít thank you enough. I love beer and I love guava. So: Pours peach with a hugely frothy white head. Aroma is sort of funky peach. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Itís funky. Itís fruity. Is it guava? Could be. Finishes very mildly sour and funky. Saison it is. Very so. Delicious. Underrated. Very.

Thanks Jason, the beer pouts to a hazy amber orange body with a fully lasting (entire life of beer) dense coating sheath of white head. The aroma is lightly fruity with a light vinegar/gueuze like thing going on. Some saison yeasts. The flavor is sweet and Guava-ish. Fruity but sour. Nice bread and funky yeast. Lots of unique spicing but more funk than spice. Medium body with a clean texture and tartness. Very nice.
