Growler

Acquired via trade
Thanks, mwgroove23!

Cloudy golden. Creamy, large, near-white head. Fairly sticky.

Sweet and juicy grapefruit aroma with some mild grass and yeast. The aroma comes together nicely.

Nice combination of grapefruit and mild funk, earth, and grass. Nice.

Medium bodied, creamy carbonation.

Very tasty.

From a growler pour filled this afternoon-

Appearance- Bright, golden yellow, completely clear, with a thin white head that fizzled away very quickly, not leaving any lace or rings around the edges of the glass.

Smell- Sweet grapefruit and fruity yeast dominate, with maybe just a touch of vinous character.

Taste- Very similar to the nose, huge grapefruit and citrus, a slight lemon tang, big fruity yeast esters. Slightly earthy to balance out the huge fruit presence.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation, incredibly easy to drink

Overall- Very happy I came across this. Of course Sofie is good, but Paradisi is just on the next level.

Enjoyed on tap at the Hopleaf in a 12oz tupil in Chicago, IL.

A - Translucent, pale golden, soft white head - dissipates quickly leaving some just around the rim, constant carbonation rising.

S - Tropical fruit, floral, sour cherry, lemon, grapefruit, cranberry, raspberry

T - Sour cherry/cranberry/raspberry, funky brett, belgian yeast, tart white grape.

M - Crisp champagne taste. VERY highly carbonated, bubbly on the tongue & stomach - very light but not very frothy.

O - Much different that original sofie. was not expecting the strong sour cherry/cranberry/raspberry/funky brett. almost a berliner weisbeir. a shade darker but similar carbonation and crispness/sharpness. But mostly didn't get enough of the belgian yeast which was really nice in sofie. Certainly enjoyed tho- but not as good as the Original.
