HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Sampled on tap at the Tap House in Lemont. Bright golden pour with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mid barrel notes, some dry yeast notes as well. Flavor is mostly grapefruit juice with touches of grapefruit rind. Some barrel notes, some yeast notes. Mild esters. Medium bodied, bright and effervescent, mouthfeel. Quite drinkable. Very nice.

tap at Black Sparrow on 5/11/13 - Pours golden with a small, fading white head. It has a tart, sour citrus aroma. The flavor of sweet malt and grapefruit with a funky, tart bite. It has lively carbonation and finishes with the grapefruit lingering on the palate. Very good combination.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
On tap at Mekong. Aroma was tart citrus and slight funk. Flavor matched with a thinnish grapefruit finish. Pleasant enough, but a bit thin, and I liked the original better.

Huhzubendah (3477) - Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2013
On draft at Whole Foods in Alaexandria, VA. The beer is light golden with a small, white cap. The aroma brings tropical fruit, floral hops, saison yeast, and more. Wine barrel and grapefruit character just shines in the flavor. Oh my. Ridiculously tasty. Juicy and refreshing, teeming with flavor. Well beyond the quality of the standard Sofie. I ordered three pints and two growlers to take home. Highly recommended.

Tap at ues pony. Pours muted yellow with not much head. Nose of grapefruit a and some oak. Tastes of Chardonnay and woody but mostly of juice. I likes grapefruit juice fine but this isn’t "beery" enough for me. Nice carbonation though
