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.

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.

You know when you buy a big sack of those Cuties clementines? And most of them are incredible? But some of them aren’t incredible. Some of them are sorta sourish, maybe a few are underripe and a few are overripe. Well this beer tastes like those. Not terrible, but not a flattering showcase for grapefruit.

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.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2013
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.

piscator34 (2128) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Draft sample. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pilsner malt, lemon rind, green herbs, and white pepper. Great complex citrus flavor upfront (lemon, kumquat, white grapefruit), along with more white pepper, vanilla sugar cookies, and a touch of dried wood. Light bodied with a touch of refreshing sourness. Very good.
