St. Peter’s Fruit Beer (Grapefruit)

What a day. This was just not a good day in general, so I’m happy that I’m home. Tomorrow is Fire Academy and then after that, I get to spend the weekend with Katie. I picked this beer up not only because I’m in the middle of reviewing my British beers, but because the bottle is insanely cool. Onto the brew.

ABV: 4.7%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We use our Wheat Beer as a base for this superbly refreshing beer. The zesty/pithy grapefruit is in complete harmony with the hops and malt. Excellent.”

Random: I’m going to a brewpub for dinner tomorrow. Hopefully they have good stuff on tap.

This brew poured with almost no head. What was there was about an eighth of an inch high and pure white. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body of the beer was clear and a bright orange color with moderate carbonation. The nose on the brew was apparent as soon as I poured the beer and was almost unpleasant. It had lots of notes of grapefruit (although it almost smelled skunky), lemon and a hint of pineapple. On the taste, oh my god…this beer was awful. It had an unpleasant metallic taste, a bit of skunk and then some grapefruit became apparent with a bit of wheat. The more sips that I took of it, the better it became, but that really wasn’t saying all that much. The grapefruit really took backseat on the brew. The beer itself was pretty thin, very watery in fact, and very low carbonation to boot. The finish was long and ugh…just gross. The only place this beer is going is down the sink. Avoid at all costs.

Untappd Rating: 1.0/5.0
