3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Map Room in Chicago. Very similar to Sofie in texture and flavor, though I did get significantly more citrus in the flavor along with the "Belgian" feel. I tasted orange peel, though it appears that the actual flavor was grapefruit. I enjoyed it, but I love Sofie so I was sure to enjoy it anyway. If you’re not into Sofie to begin with, this one might not do it for you.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Pours hazy peachy lemon cloudy with a creamy white head. Aroma and flavor are very floral from the grapefruit and Sofie base, bringing smooth somewhat sweet lemon with a grassy nose. There is a ton of yeast influencing the nose, maybe some nutty funk in there as well. Flavors are filled with citrus fruits and some wild yeast as well.

On tap at Madison’s pre-GTMW event - Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Nose is orange juice/orange soda, a touch of coriander, and light pale malt. Super refreshing. Taste is like a mimosa--light and orangey, with pale malt, coriander, and a touch of yeast. Smooth and really gently carbonated. This was fantastic.

Tap pour - deep golden with almost no head upon presentation. Aroma is full of grapefruit, sour apple, spice and a hint of funkiness - some white wine-like characteristics - and good overall! Flavor is delicious - although it had been a while, I seem to feel the base Sofie coming through, but the extra layers of sour grapefruit, a vinous character, an added dryness and lots of yeast come through. Palate is good - keeps you coming back for more. Very enjoyable drink - wish I could get this one again!

On draught at Fibbers. Pours a hazy straw color with a white head. Aroma is light citrus, wheat and some lemon. Taste is semi sweet. The grapefruit is pretty gentle and although I had hoped it to have more citrus, this was still a good beer.

On tap at 2013 GTMW, I enjoyed several samples of this during the fest, awesome stuff, pours a clear golden with a white head and spotty lacing, the aroma was all over the place but in a good way, tons of citrus mixed in with oranges and grapefruit, the flavor was really soft on the front end but has an awesome amount of fruit in the finish, crazy smooth and good, nice.
