You know when you buy a big sack of those Cuties clementines? And most of them are incredible? But some of them aren’t incredible. Some of them are sorta sourish, maybe a few are underripe and a few are overripe. Well this beer tastes like those. Not terrible, but not a flattering showcase for grapefruit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at crunchy's. pale yellow with a big, dense, white head. Sweet and stinky aromas. Almost a grapefruit/wine taste. The citrus tastes a bit too fermented for me and is unsettling.

tap at Black Sparrow on 5/11/13 - Pours golden with a small, fading white head. It has a tart, sour citrus aroma. The flavor of sweet malt and grapefruit with a funky, tart bite. It has lively carbonation and finishes with the grapefruit lingering on the palate. Very good combination.

Draft at coles. LOVE this beer. Not even a grapefruit fan. Slightly hazed blonde pour. Kind of funky, grapefruit heavy, funky yeastiness. Dry finish. Sofie shines here but grapefruit addition puts this over the top. Awesome beer

The Goose Island crew was walking down the line for BCS variants with pitchers of this at GTMW 2013. Pours a clear gold with a smallish white head. Notes of pale and bready and sweet malts, sugars, straw, and a lot of grapefruit juice. Some bitterness from the rind. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, fruity, then dry mouthfeel. I liked this but give the edge to regular Sofie.
