Growler. Hazy golden color with a smaller sized head. Floral, citrus, lighter spices, some earthiness, and a very light funk.

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.

tap at Black Sparrow on 5/11/13 - Pours golden with a small, fading white head. It has a tart, sour citrus aroma. The flavor of sweet malt and grapefruit with a funky, tart bite. It has lively carbonation and finishes with the grapefruit lingering on the palate. Very good combination.

Pour on tap at Black Bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, peach, pear, some mango and pineapple as well, hints of grass, spice notes, touch of biscuit, yeast. Taste is a mix of biscuit, bread and yeast into nice white fruit, peach, pear, some slight pineapple, mango, hints of yeast, slight spice notes, finishing with some earth, slight tart fruit.

12oz bottle that was properly bottled from a keg in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, spicy yeast, pale and caramel malts, some light oak, and light fruits. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth texture. A really good beer.

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.

Tap at Dexters. Filtered yellow orange. Creamy, soapy white head. A lot of flavor, but comes off a touch harsh for the moderate ABV. Some vinous champagne, white wine notes. The grapefruit comes across, juicy, not hoppy. More fruit tones and balance come out the more you sip at it. Pretty good.
