sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2012
Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB. Couleur reste dans les mêmes tons que la version de base, à savoir un ambre foncé restant assez trouble sur un col blanc. Arôme alterne ce côté aigre de grappe goyave avec ce bouquet fruité de raisin Scuppernong typique de la région du sud des US. Le tout parvient à conserver une bonne base maltée/cara et le profile de levure. Palais est riche, fruité avec goyave typique de cette bière et un ajout fruité de raisin. Le tout conserve ce profile tropical avec une pointe épicée. Le tout reste à rappeler que la Guava Grove présente une belle note aigre à l’origine, ici le tout reste plus modéré mais toujours unique.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Handbottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, wood, brettanomyce, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, brettanomyces, and caramel, leading to a lightly acidic brett finish. Nice. Thanks a lot MadsBerg for sharing.

Hand bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madsberg. pours golden with a slight haze and a creamy off-white head leaving laces. Spicy, exotic nose. Medium body, fruity, tart and surprisingly salty. Again exotic fruits. Dry finish with no real bitterness - a little astringent and leathery. 161209

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Growler pour courtesy of markwise. Pours hazy brown-gold with modest opacity and white head. The aroma is full and quite yummy with guava tropical fruitiness, some modest smooth pepper notes, newly ripe cherry fruit must, raisins and spices like cinnamon. Wow. Cool flavor. The taste begins with a mild pulse of guava fruit and malt sweetness followed by wavy undulating tall earthiness. Those notes get accompanied by berry fruitiness, grainy malts and assorted spices. I love the nearly bright near ripe red berriness mixing with gludgy wet earthiness. Very cool, very different, very refreshing and very good.

markwise (4545) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Thanks to kiefdog for sharing the growler. Pours hazy amber yellow with a white head. It is guava grove, so it is an energetic head. Nose is fruit: guava and slight grape, pepper, spice, light fruit, and saison malt. Flavor is the same with grapey, peppery goodness. Pepper slides down the palate and is noticeable at the back of the swallow when searched for. Interesting twist on a great beer.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Grolwer courtesy cmillward. pours a very cloudy, golden orange color topped by a small, off white layer of foam that settles to a thin film leaving spots of lace behind. The aroma shows notes of the fruity guava, pepper spices, and some tart grape skins from the scuppernong grapes. The grapes add a bretty like quality to go with the yeast that is already present. The flavor follows with the sweetness from the guava and tartness from the grapes blending nicely to go with the pepper spices on the backend. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a dry, tart finish. This is a really nice treatment, but the bottle is still top notch in my book.
