4.35/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark gold into the glass with glistening yellow edges, quarter inch head sits atop. Little lacing to speak of, but a nice robust color for sure.

Smell is straight GUAVA. Maybe some citrus hiding in the background, lemon and lime and maybe a little avacado.

The taste is amazing balance between guava and brew, a great harmony that really does wonders for the beer. To be completely honest, I think the burp might be better than the beer, 100% guava burp. I highly recommend it.

Great brew. Not legendary, but if I lived near Cigar City I would drink the shit out of this. Overall got a 4.5 because of the burp. #Truth.

A- Hazy dark orange color with a good head retention. Nice lacing on the glass.

S- Dry sweetness with guava coming in, ending with a slight citric acid. Really nice and balanced nose.

T- Fruity guava sweetness with a little acidic note, drys quickly and has a nice finish. No residual flavors at all. Really balanced beer.

M- Nice med body with a velvety smoothness coming from the high carbonation level. Very nice.

O- Awesome beer.

Pours a gold/peach color with a paper thin head that disapates into a stable ring around my ccb snifter. Aroma is powerful, strong tropical fruit notes with grapefruit in the back. Taste follows the nose, funk and pepper added. Smooth in body, easy to drink and very refreshing. I already loved guava grove, guava groove takes that amazing saison to a whole new level. Bravo CCB!
