On tap at the Blind Tiger during their Cigar City event. Pours a hazy and headless papaya juice color. Spicy cinnamon on the nose, and just tons of raw fresh plums. Most intense plum aroma I’ve ever smelled on a beer. Lightly acetic with some spicy acid to it. Vanilla flavors, and a lot of that goo that ends up around the cherries in pie filling. Light acid and cinnamon on the finish. Very crisp and yummy. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2012
Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB
Couleur cuivrée, col blanc. Profile alterner sur une sorte de funk levure avec ce côté agreeable de la prune laissant des notes variant entre fruité et épicé. Palais entre un fruité sec et une certaine aidité lancinante. Le tout a ce côté funk/acide qui est prenant avec cet ajout de renfermé presque de fruits fermentés mûris.

On tap at CCB pouring up peach/apricot juice hazy copper with white head. The aroma is smooth peach and plum fruitiness with bold sharp jabs of spicy and slightly funky yeastiness slicing through at will. It almost gets chalky dry in places. Overall a nice full fruity/tart/funky aroma. The taste is sort of plum and peach fruity sweetness quickly becoming tart, under ripe peach and plum fruit skin tannin tartness, dehydrated fuzzy apricot chunks and yeasty spicy tartness. I was hoping it would be funkier and more barnyard but this fresh it really comes up far short. Would love to try it with some age. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Tap at BT. At least this one was pretty nice- way less aceto than the passion saison. Pours almost the same color- bright peach skinned, pinkish sunset red with hints of violet. Aroma is less aceto, good fruitiness, plum, dark skins, low acetone, musty, tart light vegetable, slight spice, pepper, phenolic and celery salt, funk and good lacto and brett sourness. Flavor is more vege, plums, skins, plastic, phenol, earth, good lacto sourness, some hints of tannins, tartaric acids from the skins, spicy cardamon, coriander, celery, and pepper. finish is dry- but overall is a bit muddy. Still enjoyable. tgncc (3132) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2010
The aroma is spicy, vinegar, mustard, plum, awesome!! The appeanace is a hazy orange, small white head. The flavor is spicy, plum,brown mustard. The body is medium, the mouthfeel is a little slimy. The finish is most definitely sour. Very nice!

I really liked this. Aroma has spice, pepper, cinnamon, fruit, lots of grape, plums and sourness. Flavor is sweet, sour, candy like, hints of spice, lots of pie like spice, cinnamon, cake and pepper. Tart fruit, plum and some cherry, little bit of yeast character. Awesome. italarican (1550) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours like guava juice. Nice aroma of black cherry and candied sugar with a touch of cinnamon spice. Flavor is patented Guava Grove juiciness (grapefruit and guava) with a touch of red pepper and a surprisingly sharp level of acetone. A touch of nail polish comes through, but the finish has plenty of guava juice and pepper. Really nice level of acidity with a spice level that complements things well. juiceisloose (1491) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2011
On tap at CCB. Pours a cloudy, dark orange color with a reddish hue and topped by a small off white head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film and leaving some lines of lace around the glass. The aroma is really nice showing notes of cinnamon, spices, and fresh plums to go with the funky yeast, must, and some lactic sourness. The plums and spices really shine though. The flavor follows suit with the fresh plums and lactic sourness to go with some tart fruit skins, cinnamon spices, pepper, earth, and the funky guavas from the base beer. The funky yeast from the Guava Grove starts to make itself known on the back end. Just a touch acidic from the active yeast. Medium bodied, smooth with subtle carbonation that leads to a spicy, funky, fruity finish. This is a really nice treatment to the Guava base with a really nice aroma. Good beer, really enjoyed this one. murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger.
Pours like grapefruit juice, hazy with no head. Very strong fruit aroma with plum, cherry, and a bit of cinnamon spice. The taste is very sour, almost overwhelming, makes it a bit hard to finish.
Overall, very tasty but a bit too tart.
