4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden with a white pillowy head. The aroma has spiciness, grapes, saison earthiness, some light citrus, hints of wine barrel and is very clean and bright. It has a medium body that is quite smooth compared to the regular Sofie and has fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth grape, oak, citrus zest, cream, spice and earthiness. The finish has black pepper and funky bugginess. Much smoother and fuller tasting that the regular version and the barrel seems to show more. Very nicely done.

Pours hazy golden with medium white head, good lacing. Notes of clean brett, yeast, lemon citrus, wood, apples, and spice. Body is refreshing and crisp. Nice brew from bud.

Poured a yellow color from the growler with aromas of bread, tartness, light grapefruit, and some hay. Flavors are the same a light sour with some grapefruit thrown in. Decent beer overall.

12oz bottle that was properly bottled from a keg in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, spicy yeast, pale and caramel malts, some light oak, and light fruits. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth texture. A really good beer.

Growler from Whole Foods in Old Town, Alexandria. Served in a Goose Island tulip. Like Sofie with quite a bit more citrus. Good grapefruit. Very dry. Quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the growler a clear, wan yellow with a thick but not persistent fluffy white head. Not impressive - but cut it some slack, this is not a stout after all. Malty aroma has a definite fruity overtone, grape with a hint of grapefruit. Fruity notes, especially the grapefruit, come out even more in the flavor, which has some good but not overdone fruity sweetness. Texture is smooth and firm, if not fizzy. Overall, rather nice. Definitely a sipping beer, good for chillaxing on a hot summer day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Tap n Handle. Dark golden appearance with a white head. The aroma is tropical, light citrus, tart fruitiness with spices, wild yeast and a light funk. Similar flavor, tasty, fruity and tart with a light sour character. Light to medium soft body with a smooth, carbonated feel and a dry finish. NICE.

Hazy copper, thin small bubbled oily white head. Juicy dry nose, light dusty earth and peppercorn. Lightest brett. Dry, crisp flavor, lemon finishes heavy dust, bit of a short finish. Bit of plastic and egg through finish.

Insane straw clarity
Nice zesty tart aroma and horsey funk
Very juicy and sweet. Tasty Brett funk. Very bright and the grapefruit changes this beer for the better. Pretty insane. I’m not a sofie fan. This changes it

Hazy golden orange body, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Grapefruit, a little musty oak, some citrus, and yeast. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some acidity, solid finish. I was more than content with just one, however.
