Draft at Eulogy. Mostly clear gold pour with a large white head. Lots of grapefruit. Pineapple. Clementines. Fresh oak. Vanilla. Honeycomb. Biscuits. Lemon seeds. Little bit sweet. Little bit sour. Slight Brett funk. The grapefruit juice somewhat overpowers the aged ale underneath. Fizzy body. Nice and 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.

ryanfolty (2334) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 May 11, 2013 - tap at GI 25th anniversary party. Clear yellow pour with no head. Aroma was citrus, spice and sour. Taste was consistent with aroma. Had again 7.31.13 - on tap and big head with lacing so bumping to a 4 and overall to 16, this is solid.
