On tap at Madison’s pre-GTMW event - Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Nose is orange juice/orange soda, a touch of coriander, and light pale malt. Super refreshing. Taste is like a mimosa--light and orangey, with pale malt, coriander, and a touch of yeast. Smooth and really gently carbonated. This was fantastic.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Pours hazy peachy lemon cloudy with a creamy white head. Aroma and flavor are very floral from the grapefruit and Sofie base, bringing smooth somewhat sweet lemon with a grassy nose. There is a ton of yeast influencing the nose, maybe some nutty funk in there as well. Flavors are filled with citrus fruits and some wild yeast as well.

At the Beer Belly / Goose Island Migration event. Pours a light yellow. Getting a few citrus notes but this is pretty soft in flavor. Super mellow. Fruit is in the back seat. Getting some tea like tannins. Quite nice.

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.

On draught at Fibbers. Pours a hazy straw color with a white head. Aroma is light citrus, wheat and some lemon. Taste is semi sweet. The grapefruit is pretty gentle and although I had hoped it to have more citrus, this was still a good beer.
