Growler via Whole Foods, if you can freakin’ believe that. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Barrel aromas. Dry with muted fruit and mild yeast notes. Decent mouthfeel and body.

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.

Draft from notes. Pours a hazy yellow. Very soft aroma and taste. Some light tart citrus and a little spicy yeast. Very good overall, i would gladly drink this everyday. Very refreshing.

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 that’s easily recognized as grapefruit. Luckily the base beer is still pretty sweet as a counter.

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

On tap at 2013 GTMW, I enjoyed several samples of this during the fest, awesome stuff, pours a clear golden with a white head and spotty lacing, the aroma was all over the place but in a good way, tons of citrus mixed in with oranges and grapefruit, the flavor was really soft on the front end but has an awesome amount of fruit in the finish, crazy smooth and good, nice.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, slightly sweet malt and grapefruit. Taste is bitter from the hops and grapefruit while slightly sweet and malty at the same time, very cool beer.
