3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2013 Draft at The Porter. What a hidden gem they had hear. Wow. Pours a slightly unclear golden with medium to thin white head. Smell is light funky, white wine, oak, big fresh grapefruit, lemon. Taste is lemon, oak, grapefruity finish, slight white wine notes, ends slighty tangy. Mouth was slightly creamy and medium full but still very soft. Just great and a big improvement to an already good beer.

On tap. Golden yellow with a two-finger-wide white head. Aroma has tons of grapefruit, pineapple, and orange peel with some lesser notes of lemon, honey, and yeast. Taste is a bit funky - yeast, grapefruit, candi sugar, honey, oak. Better than I expected, very refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, with some notes of honey graham cracker. Mostly clear, very light peachy hue, with a fairly lasting, white head. Off-dry, fruity, and with subtle notes of golden earth. Light bodied, refreshing, and with nice lingering, fresh fruitiness.

Aroma of great funk: band aid, citrus zest and brett. Pours deep golden with a small head. Taste is nice and yeasty. Pizza dough and grapefruit zest are the heros with slight oak. Light and easy.

Hazy yellow, light white head, light legs / Fruity nose of grapefruit, light brett / Medium to full body, fruity, some sweetness with decent hopping, and lightly bitter finish / Fruity flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, grass, straw, light brett / For the combination of young fruit and brett doesn’t work.
