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.

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.

Full disclosure: I tasted this while pouring for GI at the Blarney Stone Brew Fest in June. And my notes were very hasty. Sophie is already a favorite beer for me. This one is cloudy in my cup, and offers up a scent of grapefruit, but also some live Belgian yeast. Big tart taste, and nothing like the grapefruit radlers running around. Just a full on Belgian beer with plenty of sour thatís easily recognized as grapefruit. Luckily the base beer is still pretty sweet as a counter.

On tap at Madisonís 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.

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. Iím not a sofie fan. This changes it

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.
