St. Peter’s Fruit Beer (Grapefruit) : St. Peter’s Brewery Co Ltd : Grapefruit? (wheat)
Standing at the gates of heaven, I think I would let these brewers in. Aside from the funky bottle shape, there’s the cookability of their stout. Then there’s the sheer bold-face stupidity of throwing grapefruits into a wheat beer. But, alas, I did enjoy that outrageous wheat weighed over with watermelon. And grapefruit hints are a welcome addition, particularly to the IPA palate.
But this one ain’t real successful. Grapefruit overwhelms the senses, making it bitter and not in a hmm, this is delicious way. No, it’s more spritely, like plunging your cutting edge spoon into bits of stubborn grapefruit pulp and having it squirt you in the eye.
