4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft… RBWG ‘10… This beer rocks!… Murky caramel-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The aroma is acidic, funky and fruity in classic La Roja/Guava Grove fashion – a marriage that works very well. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Sweet, fruity, tangy flavor. Low bitterness. Finishes sweet/tart and then dry. World class saison!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy orange pour, off white head. Aroma is really interesting. Lots of tropical fruit, light red wine vinegar, funk, yeast, leather. Flavor is tart and a bit funky but what the barrel did to this beer was transform the flavor. It didn’t bring much sourness, just a delicious flavor that leaves your mouth watering...begging for more. Rating 3333. My favorite number.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap Cigar City pouring hazy fully opaque murky amber with copper hues and long lasting creamy off white head. The aroma emits pears and apricots as well as a little bit of sweaty socks and moldy leather and then sour yeasty tartness that gets near a sense of crushed aspirin. The taste is similar with a big pulse of pears and apricot and a bit peach and then quickly becoming tart with lemon and grapefruit mixed with mango. Into the finish the tart yeast helps create a dry finish.

Entering old rates. Cask @ CCB. Blend of a Jolly Pumpkin yeast with guava goodness.
Couleur ambrée allant vers opaque orangé, col blanc tenace. Bière au profile bien aigre le tout sur des notes fruitées de la goyave mais aussi le profile unique de Jolly Pumpkin qui se ressent dans la barrique. Le tout sur un medley de fruits exotiques et agrumes, pelure d’orange laissant un fini fruité mais balancé par ce côté aigre.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Pours a hazy amber body with a white head. Bretty leather funky tones, not quite the JP funk you might expect to pull but it does have some of those funky leather y old provolone cheese notes. A citrus accented funky leathery spicy body with some zesty yeast spice. Finishes dry floral with a cheesy leather. Very very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at CCB for RBWG Hunahpu release 2010. Pours a hazy deep copper with a nice lasting fluffy head. Aroma is funk right from the start- has a wine like, and jolly pumpkin spicy brett funk, apple cinnamon spices, fruity esters, tropical brett notes, pineapple, unripe mango and guava with woody notes. Flavor is slightly soapy and citrusy upfront but that fades a bit, more funky brett, wood, earth, citrus, leather, mineral, horseblanket, tropical fruits, and finish has a nice tart sourness and is actually dry here. Much better than regular Guava Grove.
