3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at crunchy's. pale yellow with a big, dense, white head. Sweet and stinky aromas. Almost a grapefruit/wine taste. The citrus tastes a bit too fermented for me and is unsettling.

Golden. Small white head with wispy retention and drippy lace. Aroma is fruity, a little sour, grapefruit, dusty. Flavor is sweet grapefruit, orange, wood and spice - very nice. Medium body, soft and so very drinkable; would have this at breakfast. . Some dryness in finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Decatur Craft Beer Fest. Light yellow pour, with a small, white head. The aroma is hay, white bread, light funk, and mangoes. The flavor is nicely balanced sweetness and sour. Heavy body, hard, with a mineral feel. Overall, this is tasty beer, but the flavor is unpleasantly sour, and palate is harsh.

99 c’mon people. What are you a bunch of sheep? This beer is not that good. Reminds me of New Belgium Pluot. Which I hated. Not as bad as that though. You do get a hint of grapefruit in the nose. Yuck!

lots of grapefruit rind. Wood? Nearly clearly gold. Pretty damn tart. No head. Bitter like grapefruit rind...(centennial hops)

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.

On tap at Map Room in Chicago. Very similar to Sofie in texture and flavor, though I did get significantly more citrus in the flavor along with the "Belgian" feel. I tasted orange peel, though it appears that the actual flavor was grapefruit. I enjoyed it, but I love Sofie so I was sure to enjoy it anyway. If you’re not into Sofie to begin with, this one might not do it for you.
