JaBier (7394) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Glass at Hal & Als on 6/18/13. Clear yellow in color with a thick white head. Aroma of herbs, malt, funk and citrus. Malty and herbal flavor with some grapefruit before a sweet finish. Grapefruit was more subtle than expected. Honestly, I dont think Id have been able to pick it out if I didnt know it was in there. Could probably tell a huge difference if I had it side by side with regular Sofie though.

Draught at Porter Bar. Sophie with that pleasant dry saison taste and addition of grapefruit, and I thought I picked up some peach. Really nice.

TheAlum (7106) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Sampled on tap at Goose Belgian Fest (Chicago, IL). Pours a well hazed golden straw pour, a healthy offwhite head dies to a thicker film that laces ok. Aromas are vibrant genuine grapefruit, a touch of mint, fruit oils, bread, oranges, oak. Really strong grapefruit rind, real rind. Nitial islighter end of medium bodied with a powerful citrusy grapefruit bite. Very powerful, with lots of rind, grapefruit juice. Touches of oak, white wine, oranges. A touch of mellower bready sweetness. Finish is lingering tart grapefruit and touches of bread. Up front really brings the grapefruit. Solid. Really interesting display of grapefruit, a bit cool on the palate. Aroma is incredible. It is almost like drinking grapefruit juice, something I love. Best beer of the fest as far as new beers with huge vibrant flavors and highly drinkable.

Strykzone (7043) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2013
On tap at Bigelos. Lightly hazed golden with a small off white layer. The aroma is sourness with fruit. I taste the funky sour yeast with fruit that is surprisingly sweet. This is not sour at all. Vinous effects and woody leather. The bret is tasted late. Interesting.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Draft at coles. LOVE this beer. Not even a grapefruit fan. Slightly hazed blonde pour. Kind of funky, grapefruit heavy, funky yeastiness. Dry finish. Sofie shines here but grapefruit addition puts this over the top. Awesome beer

On draft at Churchkey in DC. Pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of sour apple with some feint vinegar notes. Lovely flavor with apple and some tart cherry notes. Crisp tart finish.

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.
