On tap at Union 613. Served in a mason jar. It pours a cloudy light gold. Lightly spicy tart Belgian aroma. Soft round mouthfeel. The taste is Belgian light banana, saison like funk.†

Pink Fuzz is a beer that I could sit in the sun and drink for hours. Itís very popular with my friends who arenít exactly beer connoisseurs.
The appearance to the beer isnít great. Fairly cloudy but does give a nice head. The nose is very wheaty. I expected a completely different taste as I was thinking of other fruit infused beers which are full of artificial sugary flavouring. The taste is very wheaty, but has a little grapefruit zest which brings on some bitterness to make it very drinkable.
This beer has caused me a big problem. I always pick this up when Iím entertaining guests. When the guests are gone, my fridge is empty of Pink Fuzz and filled with generic BS beers that my friends brought over.

Iím not well-versed in craft beers and not usually very adventurous but Pink Fuzz was an instant hit with my tastebuds! Emboldened by that, I have since expanded my beer repertoire, but Pink Fuzz was definitely my gateway beer!

Cloudy pale blonde with smalll white head. Lovely resiny, citrusy and herbal aroma. Average to medium bodied. Tryly a great summer beer. Tried it for the first time on tap at the Smoque Shack (ByWard Market) and was pleasantly surprised by this refreshing local creation. Perfect for warm summer nights and pairs very well with BBQ.

Had it on tap at the Corner Bar in Westboro. Great citrus taste, very easy to drink. One of my go to summer beers, plan on having a lot more over the rest of the summer!

On tap at Ireneís Pub, Ottawa. Tastes like a hefeweizen with a nice addition of citrus flavour. Unlike in a typical "grapefruit beer", the grapefruit is properly integrated into the flavour of the beer. Very refreshing.

At the brewpub with Shane. The grapefruit elements give a bitterness to support the 20 IBU. Wheat is the backing. Good summer stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a nice white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of wheat malt with light zesty notes of grapefruit. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet wheat malt notes with some zesty notes of grapefruit with light hoppy finish. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Highly drinkable wit beer with a nice hoppy touch. Dryer finish would improve experience even more.

My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit zest and tropical fruitiness from hops sit upon cushy wheat in this quenching brunch beer.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the very cloudy beige (pink?!).
-Drinkability is very high despite the fact the beer could be drier, to my tastes.
-Hops also share a peppery touch.
-Hops and grapefruit zest are perfectly harmonious.
