Septemberfest. Sample from a bottle thanks to Suttree. Hazy orange with a white cover. Aroma is very tropical fruity, guava apparently, oranges, mango, dry and spicy. Taste is again nicely dry, with a big tropical sweetness coming over the top, guava, mango. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2009
750ml bottle to kan for sharing yet another CCB beer as this was the forth of the session! pours hazy orange with foamy white head. the nose is yeasty with a twangy orange/guava fruit going on. flavors are mildly sour, twangy fruit, yeasty, and yogurt. very tasty and a fun one to drink for sure. coyotehunter (698) - , Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2009
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. MrBunn (2841) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2009
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. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - SEP 29, 2009
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.

Growler thanks to JohnC. Orange pour, aroma of tropical fruits. Flavor is almost meaty, with a bit of sourness and tropical fruitiness. 3 Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 27, 2009
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. ) badgerben (5251) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2009
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. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2009
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. tennisjoel (1476) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2009
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.
