"We use our Wheat Beer as the base for this beer. The zesty/pithy grapefruit is in complete harmony with the hops and malt."

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2007
from crackedkettle.com - pours a cloudy very dark orange colour; the foam is composed of big bubbles and reduces quickly; the flowery hoppy notes are meeting some grapefruit; sweet and with a fair malt body; a good bitterness which lasts for long in the dry, hoppy and fruity finish

Christian (11280) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
Copper with a white head. Grapefruit aroma, unsurprisingly of the plain grapefruit juice kind. Dry and bitter. Why make this when we have all the beautiful American hops?

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 13, 2007
Tasted at the Olde Jerusalem Tavern in Farrington (London), poured a clear amber. Smooth at first, the grapefruit not coming through too strongly, but then became very tart in the finish.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 1) Reading 2007. Mucky orange haziness topped with a slick of bath foam suds. Smothering Terry’s Chocolate orange snout. Very fruity and bittersweet, but more bitter orange/mandarin flavours than out-and-out grapefruit. A bit sickly and unsubtle, but finishable all the same. 2) The Baron, 07/11/12. Grapefruit aroma: ridiculous. Tastes like a grapefruit flavoured soft drink. Hint of nut and biscuit. Doesn’t matter what it looks like. Pleasant tasting, piss poor beer. They couldn’t upsell me a pint at £1.49.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from The Rake, Southwark. Read about the St Peters beers in a book and thought I’d give them a go. Didn’t realise it was the grapefruit one from across the bar but before I could say anything the cap was off, D’oh! Poured amber with no head. Both aroma and flavour are dominated by hops, some malt notes and a slight hint of grapefruit. Thin and watery bitter hop finish...Upon completion of my rate I asked the perplexed barman to dispose of the still full glass of the vile liquid...one whiff and he quickly concurred.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2007
Bottle. Hazy orange with a good offwhite head. Complex grapefruit and bready aroma. Sharp bitter and fruity flavours, lingering dry finish. Quite nice.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2007
Orange blonde, hazy. Grapefruit in the grassy aroma. Grassy bitter, even a bit urine-like earthy flavor with grapefruit. Absolutely dry. Thin, watery texture, but a milky aftertaste. Nasty by-flavors prevent it from being a good beer.
