Pours a burnt orange with a small white head. Sour aroma with fruit notes. Taste is passion fruit, banana and wheat. Palate is medium mouthfeel. Overall a pretty great beer. Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2010
On tap at CCB pouring up copper with a little bit of haze and thin white head. It has sort of a winter spicy fruity aroma with apples, peaches, watermelon and strawberries mixing with various farmhouse yeasty spice notes. Lots of sweet fruitiness in the nose here. The taste is fruity and mildly tart with sort of apricot, peach fruit tart candy. It offers up a refreshingly dry finish with lingering fuzzy peach skin, mild tartness and a tannin like sensation lingering off into the after taste. j12601 (13027) - 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. sebletitje (10282) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2012
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. . blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 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. BrianDorry55 (361) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 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. juiceisloose (1526) - 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.

CC. Nose is super fruity, fruit punch, red tea, etc. Yeast presence seems low. Very interesting beer, but not much to relate it to any saison I have ever had. I enjoyed it, but more as a slightly sweet fruit beer.
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.
