Poured in to a pint from a bomber.
A - it's a deepish copper; copious amount of bubbles, looks soapy; minimal to no retention; strong 3/4-to-full inch head
S - I think I've been overly Saisoned tonight; yeah, those yeasts; slightly sugar candy sweet
T - this beer actually hits a perfect amount of sweetness for me; the guava flavor is sweet while also being a little fruit-meaty; it's a Saison through and through; a little dry on the back end
M - The ol lady says, "it's not my favorite foam to get through"; true to form, it's a little over carbonated, although not to any fault of a bad bottle...just the style; it'll make you burp immediately
O - this is a really solid saison with the right amount of sweetness. I enjoyed the way the fruit is utilized without an attempt to mask the proper style of beer.

A phenomenally bubbly rush of snappy straw colored soapy head. Cloudy orange-red brew. Not overly appetizing. Lacing is weak.
Tart, lemon-lime, horsey aroma, clove. Strong. Of course, Guava too. Slightly too much funk.
Nicely bitter and smooth. Much more rounded than the appearance shows. Heavy effervescents. Sweetness is spot on and translates fruit nicely. Lots of dry, earthy, ripe, bitter, guava, clove, spice, and smooth light dry sour factor. Sourness is not over the top it's greatly dulled by heavy bitter bite.
A very unique beer. It's close to what I thought it would be and it didn't let me down. A nice risky take by CCB. Solid and worthy. I wouldn't give up much in trade, but still worthy.
