LarsEngen (346) - Sandvika, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2013
50 cl bottle from Meny Liertoppen. Pours a bit hazy light orange with small white head. Fruity aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Fruity/zesty taste. Light body, heavy carbonation, long strange bitter finish.

TET (1433) - FINLAND - MAY 4, 2013
A slightly cloudy, dark yellow beer with a quite weak and white head. Aroma is quite mild, but fresh, fruits, malts and red grapefruits. Taste is quite dry and biscuity, some fruits and artificial like grapefruits. In the aftertaste there are some bitterness and citrusfruity sourness. Light+ bodied, slightly harsh carbonation. The grapefruits are tastefull, but they are not fit in the entirety with balance.

Pours cloudy orange with little carbonation or head. Aroma is breast and slightly fruity, similar to a wheat beer. Flavor is bitter and slightly sour, with a lingering bitter finish. Mouth feel is flat and thin. A timid and not very satisfying beer.

Grzesiek79 (2961) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Aromat silnie grejfrutowy. W smaku bardzo gożkie, a przynajmniej jak bitter. A spodziewałem się słodkawego piwa owocowego, tym bardziej byłem mile zaskoczony. Jedno z nielicznych piw owocowych które są gożkie z którym się zetknąłem. Wygląd po przelaniu jest niezbyt atrakcyjny, piana tylko na centymetr i jest gruboziarnista, w ciągu mniej niż minuta znika.

downender (5910) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Gold with a slight white head. Lots of grapefruit and not much else. One dimensional to say the least.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Fra fat på Rockingham Arms, Elephant & Castle 4 Nov 12. JDW festivaløl. Lysebrun på farge. Gjørmete. Sterk & god grapefruktaroma. Smaken er grapefruktjuice. Passe syrlig. Litt søt bitter ettersmak.

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle at Baran, Bergen. The colour is hazy light amber, and has a small off-white head. Fruity, powerful and sweet aroma of apricot and dried peaches. Flavours of orange and the peel, spices of cloves (christmas?) and some leather. Has a soft and rich mouthfeel, and a light orange bitterness. Lots of fruits in an interesting beer.

Nocturne (632) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask at JDW. Mostly clear gold in hue with a white head. A light citrus aroma isn’t adequate preparation for what follows. It begins with a softly carbonated lactic wheatiness before a whirling flourish of grapefruit notes break loose. They lead into a pithy and lightly bitter finish. I’ve come to expect grapefruit flavours from hops so it was a little strange to taste them in this way. But this was good stuff and I could still taste it long after the glass had emptied.
