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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
