2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mini growler picked up from the brewery. Hazy orange with an off white head. Grapefruit pulp with a bit of zest but it requires a fair amount of sniffing to get it, very slight wheat and not too much else; mild carbonation and body, plain but light sweetness on the palate, becomes dry with a bit of grapefruit again on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really good for a wheat beer. Cloudy pale blonde pour with minimal head and lacing. Grapefruit Linda offer great zest for a wheat bee. Finishes astringent and bitter. Some sourness as well. Tap at brewery.

Cask at Beaus Oktoberfest 2013, Vankleek Hill. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Lovely aroma is resiny, citrusy and herbal. Flavour of resiny hops and grapefruit and a nice bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Really good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Brothers Beer Bistro, Ottawa. Medium golden, hazy, with an average white head that retains well. Big grapefruit zest aroma and flavour, far more bitter than sweet, so this is almost like Cascade or Centennial hops, but with a touch of juiciness. Unexpectedly nice and characterful!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grapefruit aroma upfront with some c-hops and sweet base malt. Hazy copper under white wisps and a ring. Bitter grapefruit quickly develops into malt that finishes dry and with a little sulfur. Very slightly bitter grapefruit peel finish, high carbonation, light body, crisp and refreshing. Clean.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent easy drinking wheat beer. Grapefruit adds a zing factor without making the beer overly bitter. Refreshing and smooth. Really nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-04-07. Murky pastel yellow body looks like pineapple juice with a creamy white head and lace. 3+ Pithy grapefruit aroma, notes of grapefruit peel. Flavour is fairly bitter, with a good amount of grapefruit throughout. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable, it is quite tasty but bordering on a shandy with this much grapefruit in it! 3+ On tap at Beer4Boobs 2013 as "Pink Pink Fizz" apparently a version with more grapefruit, Rhino, Toronto

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
sample at brewery. clear bright golden with a frothy white head, good retention and lacing. crisp malts, touch of wheat, very floral and lemony-citrusy, pepper and few grainy and piney notes, very hint of acidity. soft carbonation, light to medium body, lightly boozy, nice citrusy-grapefruity finish (not from hops) without an assertive bite but a nice balance. finally, one craft brewery in ottawa...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery, consumed the next day. Mild grapefruit zest and wheat notes in aroma. Cloudy hazy yellow with a nice thick white head. Taste - zest grapefruit up front, gives way to a soft yet lively body with sharp bitterness and a nice subtle sweetness in the end. No alcohol present. Really flavorful and not simple either - lots going on here that these folks have balanced nicely. Really drinkable. I’ll be drinking lots of this in the warmer weather - but the 6% will get me in trouble...
