3.88/5 rDev -7.2%
On tap at Cigar City. Served in a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy burnt orange. Small head, but they tempered the pour rate so it wouldn't foam over. Retains a decent collar.
Smell - Fruity, like an apple aroma. Not distinctly guava. Acidic. Malty too.
Taste - Tart and pretty yummy. Quite malty. Sour apple. A bit of graininess. Guava kicks up in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Pretty sour. Medium body, definitely heavy for a sour saison.
Overall - I don't remember regular Guava Grove very well but I don't remember it being as good as this.

Tried this on tap at Cigar City a few months back, but more recently shared a few 750's with some friends after a quick trip to Tampa. I was surprised and elated that they bottled this beer!
I will admit that I am new to sours, and I am just developing a taste for them. Despite that, this is still one of my favorite beers.
Pours a nice head that lasts, and is a beautiful cloudy golden color. Smells pungent, maybe slightly off-putting if you're not used to sours, but I like it.
Taste is amazing. The sour hits you hard, but doesn't linger. It doesn't destroy your palette, and is totally drinkable. I've tried regular guava grove, but I personally think the guava flavor stood out way more in the sour version.
An awesome beer overall. We shared amongst many friends with these bottles but I could drink a whole 750 by myself. Will definitely seek out again (maybe this weekend.)
