piscator34 (2646) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Draft sample. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pilsner malt, lemon rind, green herbs, and white pepper. Great complex citrus flavor upfront (lemon, kumquat, white grapefruit), along with more white pepper, vanilla sugar cookies, and a touch of dried wood. Light bodied with a touch of refreshing sourness. Very good.

lots of grapefruit rind. Wood? Nearly clearly gold. Pretty damn tart. No head. Bitter like grapefruit rind...(centennial hops)

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 May 11, 2013 - tap at GI 25th anniversary party. Clear yellow pour with no head. Aroma was citrus, spice and sour. Taste was consistent with aroma. Had again 7.31.13 - on tap and big head with lacing so bumping to a 4 and overall to 16, this is solid.

Emeister84 (2580) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, with some notes of honey graham cracker. Mostly clear, very light peachy hue, with a fairly lasting, white head. Off-dry, fruity, and with subtle notes of golden earth. Light bodied, refreshing, and with nice lingering, fresh fruitiness.

On tap at Republic 7c, pour a bright yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit and Belgian yeast. Tons of grapefruit mix nicely with yeast sweet and tart. Yum!

boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2013 Draft at railroad. Pours clear yellow with minimal head. The aroma has a ton of belgian yeast and a mix of sweet citrus zest. The taste is tart grapefruit, big citrus zest, light spiciness.

You know when you buy a big sack of those Cuties clementines? And most of them are incredible? But some of them aren’t incredible. Some of them are sorta sourish, maybe a few are underripe and a few are overripe. Well this beer tastes like those. Not terrible, but not a flattering showcase for grapefruit.

GTAEgeek (2411) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Sample at the Decatur Craft Beer Fest. Light yellow pour, with a small, white head. The aroma is hay, white bread, light funk, and mangoes. The flavor is nicely balanced sweetness and sour. Heavy body, hard, with a mineral feel. Overall, this is tasty beer, but the flavor is unpleasantly sour, and palate is harsh.

3.5
beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
At the Beer Belly / Goose Island Migration event. Pours a light yellow. Getting a few citrus notes but this is pretty soft in flavor. Super mellow. Fruit is in the back seat. Getting some tea like tannins. Quite nice.
