  1. From "Robert Premeaux Jr." :

    Thanks for breaking down the sour/sweet aspects of the Guava Grove and explaining how the bacteria works. I’m every so slowly trying to appreciate the more sour family of brews (not up to sours yet), and your run through Guava Grove is connecting some dots for me.
