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.

Draft @ The Porter in ATL 05/05/13: Pours a hazy yellow straw color with a medium size off-white head that is fully lasting. Citrus nose has hints of white wine, oak, lemon, and grapefruit. Flavor is bittersweet with grapefruit and wood flavors. Has a creamy texture and a tart finish. Very refreshing!

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.

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.

gmb5127 (228) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2013
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.

stumpyiliz (212) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pour courtesy of josh at Avery Barrel Release #16!! Hazy yellow pour fast dissipating head. Aromas of tree fruits, pears, apricots and peaches. Taste was slighlty wild and all over the place. Started with a chardonnay buttery texture into pear and peach, with a dry finish on the sides of the palate.

Maltser85 (144) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUL 8, 2013
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.

Always one of my favorite saisons. The addition of grapefruit is an absolute compliment to this beer. Had it on tap twice this week one pour was bright one was very cloudy but still great. Absolute home run
