3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Stag’s Head. Pours almost clean gold with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of light grapefruit rind and juice. Taste is slightly yeasty with significant notes of grapefruit w juice and grassy hops. Finishes juicy and clean. Very refreshing and drinkable. Grapefruit profile becomes more prominent as you drink it, in a good way. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

It's unusual to get a fruit beer like this that is so sweet but well balanced. Tastes like candied grapefruit rinds on top of a decent base Belgian golden ale. So refreshing. The best shandy ever!

Tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Clear golden color, no foam. Fruity saison aroma, inflected with grapefruit. Flavor is same, slightly bitter, a little Brett character. Dry. Tasty but not amazing.

On Tap. Pours a hazy gold/yellow, ample frothy slightly off white head. Fruit and citrus aroma, light. Taste is an interesting mix of fruit and lemon zest. Nice summer beer with a good mouthfeel and slightly dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma was like a fresh cut grapefruit. The color was a bit light. It had a very interesting flavor. More like a framboise. It has a sweet, saison like beer mixed with an IPA. It gives you a tart fruit beer. Overall it was very pleasant if you like tart drinks. I would be happy to have a few of these on a warm day.

Pours a clear golden with a white head. Nice grapefruit citrus nose. Not as much breadiness with this one, but its there. Taste has the funk with the grapefruit and bitter dryness on the finish. Excellent.

Pours a light yellow color. Has a strong fruity aroma. Tastes very fruity and for some reason I tasted a hint of bourbon on the first couple of sips. Has a little funky aftertaste.
