3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from the brewery pours a cloudy yellow gold. Slim head that faded, not a lot of aroma tho’ a citrus maltiness is there which I liked. Taste is a bitter citrus - the grapefruit is there tho’rather as a supporting role than a main player. Fine it a try if you come across out but really only available in the brewery locale!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler. Lightly hazed straw with a thin cap of white head. Juicy grapefruit and cereal grains, lightly floral with a touch of earthiness on the end. Mildly sweet grains up front, leading to a pleasant pithy bitterness with a touch of tart to the finish. Balanced dry. Light to moderate body, average carbonation. In a blind taste test, this might pass as a modern APA with all those citrus tones and mild bitterness.

Growler from the brewery. Hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Malted wheat aroma, but it’s very clean, no banana esters, just clean wheat, with some subtle the citrus and in specific grapefruit. Mouthful is crisp and clean, with a very effervescent carb. The finish is quite pithy, a distinct grapefruit finish, with some solid citrus, and subtle spice. Great stuff.

Maybe the best fruit beer I have had. Grapefruit seems an ideal addition to beer and one can see that the way they added the fruit to the beer is well planned. Subtle bitterness in the foretaste with a slight well balanced sweetnes and an overall taste more similar to an IPA than a typical fruit beer.

En growler à la brasserie, consommé après 72h. Goût de citron et de zeste de pamplemousse. On sent un léger goût de houblons fruités. Très douce en bouche et bonne amertume. Bonne bière de blé mais à consommer le plus frais possible. Perte considérable de saveurs après quelques dizaines d’heures seulement.

Pink Fuzz is a beer that I could sit in the sun and drink for hours. It’s very popular with my friends who aren’t exactly beer connoisseurs.
The appearance to the beer isn’t 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 I’m 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.

I’m 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!
