Draft. Pours a bit neon yellow with a slight bubbly white head. Aroma is grapefruit, yeast, and pineapple. Taste is lightly tart and sweet with a lot of grapefruit zest. Crisp and perfect for warm weather.

Tap at Lizardville - RR , had during their "which is better sofie or paradisi" event. The punch of the grapefruit really adds a nice tartness to the beer that is missing from Sofie, and it makes it way more flavorful which I really enjoy. I think this one is tasty but for the price meh.

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.

99 c’mon 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.
