I had this Sour Grapefruit Witbier at the St. Arnolds Mussel Bar in Washington DC, ABV 5.00%. The server said called it Wittekerke but that can't be it. This is the only Da Brabandere grapefruit Ale at ABV 5.00% (which the menu claimed). Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good sour.

Look: hazy golden hue with a thin white head

Aroma: grapefruit some yeast

Taste: The flavor Like a mix of a Wit and a grapefruit sour, tart, wheat, some yeast.

Feel: light with some carbonation

Poured from bottle to tulip glass. Big, soapy head atop hazy yellow liquid. Aromas of straw, funk, and grapefruit juice. Flavor is nice, tart grapefruit, flesh and pith, with a tart kick finish. Light feel.
