Draft at Stag’s Head. Pours almost clean gold with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of light grapefruit rind and juice. Taste is slightly yeasty with significant notes of grapefruit w juice and grassy hops. Finishes juicy and clean. Very refreshing and drinkable. Grapefruit profile becomes more prominent as you drink it, in a good way. Good stuff.

Clear golden with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma is strong, concentrated grapefruit. Flavor is really dry grapefruit with some light herbs. Very light and fruity, with a strong tartness. Wife: 4.75

Pours hazy golden with medium white head, good lacing. Notes of clean brett, yeast, lemon citrus, wood, apples, and spice. Body is refreshing and crisp. Nice brew from bud.

Aroma of great funk: band aid, citrus zest and brett. Pours deep golden with a small head. Taste is nice and yeasty. Pizza dough and grapefruit zest are the heros with slight oak. Light and easy.

Taster on tap at Neon’s. Clear golden yellow color. Nice bretty, tart aroma. Some moderate citrus-grapefruit, not too much though. Some orange citrus, thin white head, couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Lightly tart taste, very much like a grapefruit is. Hint of oak wood. Light sweet. Great balance of grapefruit, oak, light belgian candy sugar and spices. Some grapefruit / citrus zest. Very enjoyable stuff, pretty balanced and well-done. Definitely an improvement on the base, I think

Growler via Whole Foods, if you can freakin’ believe that. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Barrel aromas. Dry with muted fruit and mild yeast notes. Decent mouthfeel and body.

stumpyiliz (218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pour courtesy of josh at Avery Barrel Release #16!! Hazy yellow pour fast dissipating head. Aromas of tree fruits, pears, apricots and peaches. Taste was slighlty wild and all over the place. Started with a chardonnay buttery texture into pear and peach, with a dry finish on the sides of the palate.

egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, vanilla, wood, spices, and light alcohol. Taste of sweeter grapefruit, citrus, spices, wood, and a dry finish.

fidemaster (335) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Aroma was like a fresh cut grapefruit. The color was a bit light. It had a very interesting flavor. More like a framboise. It has a sweet, saison like beer mixed with an IPA. It gives you a tart fruit beer. Overall it was very pleasant if you like tart drinks. I would be happy to have a few of these on a warm day.

Cybercat (6033) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Comes out of the growler a clear, wan yellow with a thick but not persistent fluffy white head. Not impressive - but cut it some slack, this is not a stout after all. Malty aroma has a definite fruity overtone, grape with a hint of grapefruit. Fruity notes, especially the grapefruit, come out even more in the flavor, which has some good but not overdone fruity sweetness. Texture is smooth and firm, if not fizzy. Overall, rather nice. Definitely a sipping beer, good for chillaxing on a hot summer day.
