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.

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.

GTAEgeek (1894) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
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.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a light transparent gold with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of sour and fruit. Sour really comes through on the taste with a bit of funk.

JPDurden24 (1672) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of coriander, grapefruit, spicy and funky. Plenty of wine notes and an overall beautiful taste. Very, very enjoyable.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2013
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.

Tap @ red’s. Murky gold with a nice white head. Citrusy grapefruit aroma with some layers of funkiness, earth, notes of pepper. Dry finish, bubbly. Pretty interesting.
