I'm sorry I saw this too late. Blew $10 on something that I'll have to add to the compost heap. But now I'm scared. I'm brewing a goes, and bought the vintners harvest grapefruit puree. I haven't added it yet. Has anyone tried it? Is it as foul as that grapefruit shandy? I know you advanced guys will tell me to stomp my own organic grapefruits, but I'm really just trying to save myself from paying $10 a six pack. Not trying to impress the brew gods. Advice?I have stayed away from this particular Leiny product, but knowing what their other "fruit" beers taste like, there's no way in hell they use a quality product like VH puree. They definitely use flavor extracts, thus the "Fruity Pebbles" character of their flagship.
For a grapefruit gose, I would consider the VH puree one of the top choices for adding grapefruit flavor.
Which Leinie product are you talking about? I get a fruity pebbles flavor from their Sunset Wheat, but more of a countrytime lemonade from the lemon shandy. I'd consider the lemon shandy more of their flagship. Their vanilla porter is sickeningly sweet as well.
$10 a six pack is pretty steep as well, it's usually around $6.99 (maybe $7.99 now) in Illinois. Maybe it's a tax thing, but I couldn't imagine spending $10 on a sixer when you could get so many mediocre beers for less.
