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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Draft at Churchkey. Hazy peach pour with a lively white billowing head. Nose and flavor hold beautiful tart white grapefruit, orange zest, lemon, and earthen funk. Dry and beautifully attenuated. Very very good.

On tap in Mt Prospect. Pours hazy darker golden with some orange tints and a white head. Aromas of light wood, bright grapefruit, belgain yeast, light spices, and bready malts. Flavors grapefruit, light bread, spices, wet wood, and a little spices. Finishes dry with grapefruit tang. Really nice.

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.
