On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a hazy pale brown color without any head. A little flat. Not much sourness but good hints of grapefruit.

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 youíre not into Sofie to begin with, this one might not do it for you.

99 címon people. What are you a bunch of sheep? This beer is not that good. Reminds me of New Belgium Pluot. Which I hated. Not as bad as that though. You do get a hint of grapefruit in the nose. Yuck!

Clear golden with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is strong, concentrated grapefruit. Flavor is really dry grapefruit with some light herbs. Very light and fruity, with a strong tartness. Wife: 4.75

On tap at Slows BBQ. Really nice and refreshing look. Followed by very tropical flavors as soon as it hits and gets a little funky towards the end.

Tap in a snifter at Blues Bar. Cloudy marigold color with lots of tiny bubbles streaming toward the top. This is a very full pour into the snifter so Iím not sure if a head normally exists. In this sample thereís a thin white ring literally at the top of the glass. Smells like a glass of Pinot Grigio. In fact, blindfolded I would guess wine in the glass. I get peach and nectarine more than grapefruit. The taste is slightly sweet up front from the juice followed by the familiar farmhouse funk. It finishes by leaving a sour taste in the back of your throat and a wheat malt kiss on the tip of your tongue. Itís a nice blend of sweet and tart. Maybe thereís something wrong with me, but I donít get that much grapefruit, but that doesnít hurt the beer.
