COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your Bavarian grandfathers wheat beer. We use grapefruit zest and pulp at different points in the process to insert the character of the fruit into the beer, and hops are carefully selected to emphasize the citrus notes. But dont expect this to taste like the first course of Sunday breakfast; the fruit flavour is subtle, and the bitter quality of the grapefruit is balanced nicely by a bit of sweetness in the finish.

Dlicieusement fruit et facile boire. laveugle, jaurais peut-tre mis sur une IPA ou une saison frachement houblonne cause de la prsence subtile de la levure. Joli corps. Belle souplesse. Merci Jules!

Merci Ju-Lo pour le partage. Une blamche qui na pas les traits habituels dune blanche. Je me suis fait prendre au jeu alors que Ju-Lo me servit mon verre laveugle. Jai dabord cru quil sagissait dune saison, par ses notes levures la belge. Un houblin fruit aux notes de pche et dagrumes sema par la suite le doute dans mon esprit. Sans doute une bire dinspiration belge avec un dry-hop bien amricain. Oui cest srement a. Je gote. lattaque, une douce dose dpices se conjugue aux houblins fruits. Leffervescence se mle de la partie mais sestompe abruptement pour ne laisser quun liquide plutt mort parcourir mon oesophage. Une bire qui se boit bien sans toutefois rien rinventer.

La bire est blonde, avec une belle carbonatation qui reste longtemps sur place, et une belle effervescence. Au nez, cest assez sucr et fruit, avec notamment des odeurs de pamplemousses roses. En bouche cest trs amer, avec un houblonnage que je prsume assez impressionnant, en dbut de dgustation. Au fil des gorges, un profil plus fruit, voir floral, sinstalle. Lamertume sche et solide nous rappelle dfinitivement le moment o lon croque un pamplemousse. Cest bien fait, intressante pour une bire blonde, trs prs dune IPA.

Draught from Red Door in Ottawa w Matt. Clear right yeownwith frothy white head. Smells of grapefruit, freshly mown grass, light hay, faint wheat. Taste is moderate hop, corn/toasted malt, finish is slightly stony. Body is slick, smooth, fizzy. Nose is very refreshing and light, taste has pleasantly surprising amounts of slick bitterness for a wheat beer.

Tap at Red Door Provisions in Ottawa. Translucent golden orange pour. Aroma is crispy malt, citrus hops. Taste is smooth citric bitterness with an assertive malt tang too. Nice easy drinking citrus-forward beer. Doesnt taste like a wheat beer, happily.

Very tasty grapefruit bitterness. Thin, long lasting head that leaves a decent sticky lacing. Beautiful golden colour. Perfect summer beer. Definitely the best Ive had of this style. Youll regret buying just one...

Got a mini growler at the new brewery. Pours a dull light amber colour with slight cloudiness and has barely any head to it. Has some nice floral hops aromas with hints of nutmeg. Flavours are sort of on the grapefruit side, not very tangy. Also citrus and herbal hops round out the slightly sweet flavours. Watery mouthfeel at first and also a bit prickly. Medium bodied and good carbonation. 6% abv is not noticeable in this brew. Not too bad and pretty easy to drink. Seems to be a nice summer type beer. Will enjoy again at a later date. :)

Can thanks to Marc L., thanks dude! Pours a pretty hazy yellow with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of citrusy hops and zest. I definitely get the grapefruit. Taste is not quite sweet and moderately bitter, offers more citrus and zest. Light sweetness in the finish. Body is medium and carbonation moderate. Alcohol is felt a little. Not bad at all! I thought this would be more like a fruit beer and in reality it is closer to a really nice white IPA. Im all for that!

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
473 mL Can. Murky pale straw body with a foamy white head settling to a thin layer leaving clingy lace. Aroma of grapefruit and some kind of spice I cant quite pinpoint; there is also a pungent earthy note. It tastes like white grapefruit and again a spice I cant identify; no its not coriander. Hop-bitter and grapefruit rind aftertaste, a grapefruit rind finish. Mysterious in its own way, yet pretty good beer.
