Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB
Orangé avec un léger voile trouble, col beige.
Arôme présente ce bouquet typique de la levure de Guava Grove procurant une certaine aigreur, le tout est accompagné par un fruité tropical et une douceur de fruit de la passion.
Palais est fruité sur une note aigre persistante et ce profile fruité qui persiste, fruit de la passion reste en retrait mais toujours perceptible.
Le tout et surtout cette levure contribue à une série intéressante de CCB de par les différents traitements et la variété de ces derniers qui intègrent bien les différents fruits tropicaux. . yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Hazy pour. Aroma is sweet, some light vinegar, spice and salad. Odd flavor, not as much of the passion fruit as I expected. Sweet, caramel, grain, spice, yeast and grainy dirty notes. Finished a bit prickly on the tongue. juiceisloose (1492) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Draft at the tasting room at CCB. This one pours a hazy, glowing orange color with a pink hue, almost like grapefruit juice and topped by a small off white of foam that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma shows a nice melody of tart fruits with oranges, pineapple, guavas, and peaches up front followed by some spices, and the funky guava grove yeast. Hints of old wood and acetic acid makes their way through as well. The flavor follows and shows quite acetic with the tropical fruits of pineapple, guava, and peaches up front followed by notes of spices, vinegar, and some funky yeast. The flavor is quite tart with the all the fruits, but there is a funky acetic character that throws things off for me, probably from the yeast. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation that enhances the tartness that leads to a sour fruit finish. Pretty nice treatment of the guava grove, but I liked the Spicy Plum version better. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2011

Draft at CCB. Pours amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is vinegar with tropical fruits like pineapple and papaya. Flavor is sour with pineapple, canteloupe, papaya, bready notes. Medium body, quite puckering. Overall...good for the style.

Tap at BT. Pours a hazed peachy orange passion juice look- pink tinge- no head. Aroma is fruity with hints of solvent, acetobacter vinegar, prickly, pickles, earth and tropical fruits- some funk and wood. Flavor is juicy, prickly zesty spices, fruit juices, tropical notes, hibiscus tea, tomatoe, eggplant- nightshade herbal vege bitterness, some currant as well- more spritzy acetobacter and vinegar. too sour and aceto for me, and the fruit is strange and vegetal. tgncc (3135) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2010
The aroma is a spicy brown mustard, vinegar, fruit. The appearance is hazy orange. The flavor is a little sweeter, fruit, vinegar, slight dishwater. The finish is spicy and vineagr. The body is on the thin side of medium. Good, interesting. murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger.
Pours hazy pink color, looks like grapefruit juice, no real head. Sweet fruity aroma with grapefruits, passionfruit, and some tropical notes. Taste is very tart, acidic. Carbonation is good, nice sour finish. Very flavorful. italarican (1549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Cloudy hot pink pour. Aroma of guava, sugar cane, and nail polish. The flavor is pure burning sour. Notes of juicy guava and vinegar. Acetic x 10. It’s not so much sour as it is pure acid. A bit too much in my opinion, but it sure beats being bland. j12601 (12668) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger during their Cigar City event. Pours a lot like the spicy plum, looks like papaya juice, no head. Sweet passion fruit on the nose. Jammy, sweet fruit and berries. Vanilla and lots of fruit. More sticky jam flavors, quite delicious. There’s a lot of acetic acid throughout, featuring prominently on the finish in particular.
