crossovert (9545) - Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Smells quite a bit funkier than the oiginal. The flavor heavily bends on the grapefruit with a heavy acidic bitterness. I like it.

GT2 (9408) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Tap at Churchkey. Pours clear golden. Weaker foam. Nose is moderately funky, fresh dough, hefty buttery chardonnay barrel. Spicy grapefruit comes though at first then fades. Light butteriness is hill farmstead saison like. Taste is tangy, more buttery chardonnay, some mealy apple detracts. Low acid level, refreshing. Dustier palate as it warms.

DrSilverworm (8696) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Taster on tap at Neon’s. Clear golden yellow color. Nice bretty, tart aroma. Some moderate citrus-grapefruit, not too much though. Some orange citrus, thin white head, couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Lightly tart taste, very much like a grapefruit is. Hint of oak wood. Light sweet. Great balance of grapefruit, oak, light belgian candy sugar and spices. Some grapefruit / citrus zest. Very enjoyable stuff, pretty balanced and well-done. Definitely an improvement on the base, I think
