otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: liquid sunshine. Grapefruit yellow and gold. Bubbly vibrant white head leaves a collar while very active carbonation sends a slow and steady stream of bubbles to the top.
Nose: grapefruit and soft leather – chamois. Apricot skins. Wild tropical fruits in the raw – guava, papaya, and starfruit – all basking under the warm summer sun. Raw ginger root.
Palate: freshly squeezed and pulped white and yellow grapefruit. Apricots. Fizzy frothy mouthfeel thanks to the still active yeasts bubbling and fermenting away – gives an ethereal quality to the beer altogether. Ginger and cumin mingle along the edges and in the breath. Soft white breads in the back. My tongue tingles with each quaff. Ripe tropical fruits.
Final Thoughts: wow! Grapefruit was our family business for two generations and while the Lier family may no longer be involved the grapefruit will always have a soft place in my heart. The stuff sold in supermarkets is crap; if you want real grapefruit really good you need to find a local grower and look into buying a bushel during picking season. In the meantime, I’ll get my grapefruit fix with the Dos Costas Oeste thanks to Cigar City.

750ml bottle, shared by Ferris. Yeah, it foamed explosively when Ferris opened it. Ruined his outfit, but we were able to get decent pours still. Totally hazy orange color. Thin bubbly white head, no lace sticks. Pretty nice light spicy grapefruity woody nose. Bright and floral nose. Medium to bigger body. Kind of flat. Light soft texture to it, more dry finish. Moderate sweet, light tart finish. Not bad, overall. Kind of strange. Interesting stuff for sure, though.

Ferris (10788) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - Absolute gusher that exploded all over me and left less than 12oz. Funky citrus and peach with a ton perfume. Cloudy orange with a bubbly head. Apricot, aspirin, light bitterness and a tartness in the finish. Mandarin on the tongue after.

Bottle big gusher that exploded all over Ferris. Cloudy yellow pour, lots of white head in the bottles. Aroma, lots of citrus, some funk, and some subtle sweetness. Taste, light citrus, some floral, sharp dry finish. Interesting beer.

Bottle.....gusher! The aroma has a lot of citrus for sure. The taste is solid, wish 3/4 of the bottle didn't gush. Light and airy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

peteinSD (1451) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle. Gusher. Hazy golden color with a white head. Dry wood, spice, and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is dry spice and wood with citrus. Relatively dry mouthfeel. But for the loss of most of the bottle through gushing it was a decent beer.

mR_fr0g (8079) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle at home. Huge gusher! Even after after it had been stood still and chilled for ages. Hazed orange colour with a fine lasting white head. Aroma is effervescent orange blossom, and some Brett c pineapple and nice saison yeast character. Flavour is very sweet orange marmalade, carbonation, yeast. Too sweet for a saison. Palate is fine and effervescent.

Gusher. Lost half the 750ml upon opening. What remained was tasty. Astringent lemony scent. Color is a barely hazy yellow with big white head. Earthy and light citrusy flavor. As above, very, very bubbly. Hot on the tongue. Bottle - The Porter Beer Bar - Atlanta, Georgia
