Guava Grove is a farmhouse ale that sees a secondary fermentation on one of Tampa’s favored fruits, guava. Pairs well with fresh fish, mussels, fresh tropical fruits, and earthy cheeses.

Bottle thanks to JMFG! Pours about six inches of head per one inch of beer.Pours a murky golden color. Aromas are barn funk, sour grapes and some yeasty esters. Strange that each sip is a bit different. Lemon zest sour grapes(guava?) and barnyard funk dominate this complex goodness. I dont care for most Saisons but this one is swaying me. Palte comes across watery and thin at times, but then it comes back. Still, a winner in my book.

Bottle with thanks to mcbackus. Pours a massive head of dense bubbles with a little bit of an orange liquid at the bottom of the glass. Fruity aromas hit the nose from distance and closer inspection reveals a bit of sourness (like sour grapes). The head has receded about an inch, so I pour in some more liquid and the head shoots back up to the rim... this one is definitely a live wire. First sip reveals a lot of brett-like barnyard sourness with a touch of grass and fruit, but I’m not quite sure if I would pin the fruitiness as "guava" based. It seems to be more like lemon peels or something. The texture is nice enough... kind of smooth and light, but there are moments as it slides across the palate that it seems a bit watery and washed out. Then the bretty aftertaste kicks in and it’s all lemons and farm animals again.

Bottle compliments of DuffmanSW. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a crazy thick white foamy head. Aroma of belgian yeast, sourness, sweet guava. Taste of bret, sweet fruits, very dry. Pallet. Very carbonated and very dry. Overall very tasty stuff.

750ml bottle brought over by DuffManSW, thanks Sean. Rating #81. Golden orangish pour with a big white head, this was very carbonated, really aggressive. Spicy light friuty aroma, very belgian like. Flavor was slightly tart, a little dry with some more friuty spiciness, not bad stuff at all. 񡹵)

Skyview Tasting 2.5. Courtesy of Skyview. It looks like I just opened a container of brewers yeast and poured it into my glass. Aroma of moly apricots. Certainly tastes like guava, which is not a bad thing. Quite yeasty, which didn’t surprise me. Not a great thing to start your Cigar City experience on.

Tasting GABF. Yellow-amber with big white head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Also orange notes or just general citrus. Very acidic and reminds me of wine.

First Cigar City beer sampled from Skyview’s tasting. Thanks Bob! I enjoyed this. Tart aroma. Fruity, guava, apricot. Nicely carbonated. Nice sour and sweet playing off each other. Some peach noticed as well. My kind of sour.

Picked up a 750 ml bottle from Total Wine & More in Tampa. First of the Cigar City beers sampled during MN Gathering 2.5, pours a hazy straw orange colored brew with a rocky off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of light peach, some light yeast, a hint of white pepper and sweet guava. Taste is slightly tart, flavors of mango, some mild tropical fruit, yeast and a hint of funk. Finish is slightly dry and mildly tart with a light wheat and tropical fruit aftertaste. Aroma has some nice character, flavor and finish is a tad on the light side.
