This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

No one in their right mind would dispute it being... TOTALLY RADICAL. Sixpoint Rad is a unique blend of fruit juices with ale to create the original summer crusher. The first Sick Liquid form the MAd Scientists’ Laboratory - a refreshing take on what beer can be.

look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours cloudy, deep citrus homebrew style like a polluted lake in Florida. Aroma of citrus, slight vanilla. Tastes of Tropicana's abandoned oranges and Flintstones vitamins. Medium bodied and almost no carbonation. Skip this drink. There's plenty others to try.

2.61/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: minimal head, orange-yellow in color, cloudy, high carbonation

Smell: orange, lemon, sour mix--grapefruit

Taste: wheat, banana, lime, and a huge dose of grapefruit

Mouthfeel: high carbonation, light bodied, sweet start, slightly sour middle with a bitter dry end

Overall: I love the fact that I can experience distinct sweet, sour, and bitter in this beer. It is interesting and seems like three beers all at once. The base beer appears to be similar to their Apollo ale, which I really enjoy. However, this appears to be mixed with a large dose of pink grapefruit juice and a pinch of lime. Not bad if you are really into pure pink grapefruit juice, but I do not think the combination works. I would sooner get Apollo and pass on this. Definitely a one time only buy.

Okay, so the radler isn't the most popular style among the geeks. Let's see what happens here.

This thing looks like grapefruit juice, an extremely thick red-orange with no hint of transparency, just lots of juicy heaviness in the body. It does develop a little head, which I'm not even sure if I expect or not. It clings to the edges for most of the session and drops down some spotty lace.
This beer (hybrid) is all about the juice without giving up what makes it a beer. It is hard to distinguish the bitterness between hops, grapefruit juice/pulp, and orange or whatever other pithy citrus qualities are all over this one. There's a sweetness that only seems naturally derived, very much from juice and possibly malts (again, the particularities of the beer make it hard to distinguish). There's some orange juice as well as a light sweetness from grapefruit against its sourness. Wheat does hold up its own to form a strong backbone, though, not surrendering to a simplicity or complacency against the juice. There do seem to be other juices, possibly tropical, adding to the sweetness to cut through the otherwise refreshing bitterness, sourness and tanginess to add more depth, flavor and somehow even more of a refreshing nature.
The mouthfeel offers up a heaviness that remains palatable, enough crispness to cut the naturally thick body. It rolls smoothly and offers enough citric acidity to further cut this beer so that it's not cloying. It really does work, obviously more for some than for others. I, for one, am a fan.

16oz cans

A- Like a grapefruit/OJ mimosa. Orangy/red
S- Citrus- Obviously grapefruit juice and a lot of it. Slight wheat hints revealing beer is actually in there.
T- First few sips take getting used to, then it is a refreshing tart beer. Since it is a mix of beer and grapefruit juice, you get the taste of store bought (but not frozen) juice at both the front and the back. Acidy tartness. You maybe taste the malt and very, very minimal hops in the middle.
M- Like drinking a mimosa. Think juice with carbination.
O- Fun beer. Great to have on a warm day or drink without getting drunk (just over 3% abv). Not one that I am going to savor each sip and think about it, but rather just gulp as a refreshment.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Juice-like brew on the pour, resulting in a short-lived fizzy head. The brew is downright murky; it looks like thick grapefruit or orange juice.

Very acidic and tart on the aroma, with an odd mustiness I can't quite place. Wheat and grass aromas are evident, as well as aspirin. If you didn't know what this was going in, all you'd likely get from the aroma is an overall impression of a slightly sour, slightly citric concoction.

Flavor is far more citric, with grapefruit juice, lemon, and orange peel all quite evident. Powdery wheat chaff and hay provide a backbone.

Body is bright and light, but it still has a milky wheat base tying it all together. Extremely sharp and acidic in the mouth, coming across harshly; this isn't a beer you can really savor for long before swallowing.

That said, it isn't unpleasant to do so. This beer is supposed to be a thirst quencher. No single sip really screams out that this is something amazing, but as soon as it's down the hatch, and you feel the residue kicking around your tongue, palate, and gums, you immediately want another sip.

This is truly a beer for pounding. Is it legitimately thirst-quenching? It's so acidic that perhaps not; it's closer to juice than a light wheat beer. RAD is a very interesting beer, with the light, almost creamy body of a Hefe, the puckering effect of a true sour, and the real citrus presence of...well, of juice, really, and nothing else like it.

RAD is far more sour and juice-forward than any other Radler I've had - and far, far more addicting. Don't let the low ratings for appearance and smell unduly rate this beer low; drink it from the can, and enjoy it. It's quite good!

look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a murky dirty grapefruit color with no significant head to speak of. Looks like old grapefruit juice.

The aroma has a German wheat smell, clove and some bubblegum. There is a general citrus note but nothing specific.

The taste has a bunch of things going on. There is the clove and bubblegum then comes the fruit juice. Tart lemon, perhaps lemonade, and grapefruit juice. Quite big on the grapefruit juice. Some apple. Nicely bitter.

Moderate to full bodied with prickly carbonation. Good balance of sweet and fruity bitterness. It's refreshing and a good palate cleanser.

It's a nice beer. Need to like grapefruit juice to enjoy this. Looks ugly but it's a good change up brew.

16oz can, poured into a pint glass

A- pours a murky pinkish-orange color with a very small fizzy white head that quickly dissipates, leaving nothing behind, looks like fruit juice 3

S- very fruity with notes of grapefruit, orange, peach & cantaloupe. A hint of toasted malt in the background, it actually smells a little bit like a gose 3.5

T- tart and fruity up front with notes of grapefruit juice, orange peel, grape juice and peach. There's maybe a hint of toasty malt near the finish, but its hard to find. More tart fruit on the finish 3.5

M- medium-light body with moderate spritzy carbonation produces a foamy mouthfeel with a dry, crisp and biting finish 3.5

O- this ones definitely fruity, but perhaps too tart for it's intended purpose of an easy to crush summer beer. It's about as sour as drinking lemonade, certainly not bad, but probably wouldn't drink more than one on a hot day 3.5

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Looks like carbonated grapefruit juice. Short lived fizzy head but I am enamored by the cloudy, murky grapefruit pulp color.

The nose is a natural pulpy fresh squeezed grapefruit scent with a bitter clove and yeasty back.

The flavor is like grapefruit juice. Bitter with little Radler like quality. Not a lot of other things going on. Maybe some orange juice late on?

The feel is bitter but very juice like. It's kind of thick with a bit of carbonation bite.

This didn't really hit the Radler style I was looking for and had little beer like quality. If it's a slightly alcoholic grapefruit juice your looking for this is it.

16 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet (BB16NOV)

A: Looks like freshly squeeze grapefruit juice (hazy and cloudy). No head, lacing or anything. Just Juice. The head is only on the pour and disappears with a loud fizz like soda.

S: Very light and almost non-existent. Light fruit with a whiff of beer.

T: Lots of juice in here, and quite tart. Mostly grapefruit notes with very light notes of beer making a presence. More juice than beer here. If the can was changed to not include any beer information, I would think it was just a delicious carbonated juice beverage. However, that doesn't mean it isn't delicious.

M: Carbonated with rough bubbles like a fruit soda.

O: Damn good beverage, that for me like the juice part more than the beer part in most shandies/radlers, so this one really shines for me, but most of you probably want more of the beer part. I got the can for $5 at Max's.

p.s. It reminds me of Harpoon's UFO Big Squeeze Shandy

look: 1 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Poured from a 16 oz can into snifter.

Impenetrable orange/tangerine in color, cloudy big 1 &1/2 inch off white head that faded quicker than you can say "damn that was quick". Very soda like as far as the head goes. Left a thin ring around the edges that went away just as quick. A small amount of bubbles fizzing to the top. The color is brilliant but looks more like juice than a beer. slightest of lacing, very little.

Smell was of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, lemon zest, a bit of spice that smelt very Belgianesque.

Taste... (takes a deep breath...) litterly tastes like grapefruit concentrate juice. As a matter of fact it closely resembles the drink orangeina because of the light carbonation. 7 ibu's and its bitter as hell. Very much tart. It got better as I went along and got used to it.

Fizzy carbonation ar the beginning than dies down. Felt full but light. Nice dry finish.

Overall I was very disappointed by this beer. I will still visit more sixpoint brews as always because they are a solid brewery that makes some good brews but this one just didn't do it for me. They nailed the feel, the finish and most of the smell but they fell too far flat far as the taste go. Not a drainpour but I struggled to get thru it but found myself wanting more of it once it was gone.

look: 1.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

From the can stamped BB24NOV14. Sampled on June 27, 2014.

The pour is a milky orange with a thick opaque texture and no head. I found it rather ugly to look at.

The nose is interesting with a sort of Belgian yeast and malt character interspersed with a little overripe fruit but at the same time it does not make me excited to go forward.

Lighter body considering it looks so milky-thick.

The taste tends to highlight the fruit more so such as cantaloupe, orange, tangerine, and apple with this off malty note mixed in. Ends tart. Not high on my have again list.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A - Just shy of three finger's worth of crisp lively medium khaki colored froth that recedes in fairly repaid fashion... What remains is a very limited splotchy lacing and thin collar... The color is a severely hazed medium golden yellow reminiscent of home brewed wort... Largely still with just a few stray streaks of carbonation seen towards the top of the glass... Overall all this one is much more reminiscent of juice rather than a beer (but I'm not judging yet)...

S - Lively and vibrant... Sweet peaches... Light citrus... There is a very subtle wheat component buried beneath the surface...

T - Grapefruit... Grapefruit... And more grapefruit... A light layer of refreshing wheat... More grapefruit...

M - Medium bodied... A bit thick... Limited carbonation... A bit sticky...

D - Different... I've had other Radlers in the past and don't think this one measures off... There is something just a bit off with it... Refreshing enough, but not something I would necessarily seek out again, though finishing off the rest of a four pack won't be too terrible to finish off...

No. Simply put no.
Although I can appreciate an experimental beer here and there, there is an overpowering fruit juicy sweetness that just saturates the palate into oblivion. Couldn't get through a whole can.
It was suggested to me add some vodka or champagne to it... no thanks. If it cant stand alone I'm not tainting my other alchols with in.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is cloudy yellow in color and has some hints of amber—with the cloudiness somewhat resembling apple cider. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving only a patch of bubbles on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of bananas are present in the nose along with some notes of citrus.
T: The taste starts out with initial flavors of bananas from the yeast and quickly transitions to grapefruit-like citrus flavors along with underlying hints of wheat. Notes of bananas again begin to peek through in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate with slight hints of tartness and a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but just tastes like someone mixed together a hefeweizen with some grapefruit juice.

Definitely not your typical radler. By that I mean you can taste both the beer and the juice unlike many of the radlers on the market where you only taste the juice.

The balance of grapefruit and lemon is fantastic, and that sour bite on the end is perfect for a sour ale lover such as myself.

The wheat came through just a bit for me, at 7 ibu dont expect to detect any hop flavor, but the wheat is there if you look for it.

Six Point took a big risk on this, I believe the risk paid off..and I look forward to years and years of this seasonal.

Straight pour from a 16oz can to a stubby tulip; a freshness date of November 24, 2014 is printed in black ink on the underside of the can (“BB24NOV14 1555”). This JUST came out, so I’m guessing these cans have a 6-month freshness period, which would give this a canning date of May 24 (give or take), making this beer three and a half weeks old.

Appearance (3.5): A lightly pink, opaque orange body comes out of the can (it definitely just looks like juice), capped by two and a half fingers of creamy, light tan-colored foam which doesn’t stick around for all that long. It dies down to just a thin collar at the edge of the glass.

Smell (3.5): Surprisingly, the unmistakeable scent of wheat comes out clean and strong, with a floury, common cracker and sourdough aroma. It’s accompanied by tart grapefruit zest and lemon juice aromas, but the sourdough wheatiness of it is still the most prominent note.

Taste (4.25): Everything going on in the nose, but with strong sweet and tart fruit flavors dominating the wheaty sourdough character. Strawberries, yellow grapefruit, mandarin orange, lemon zest, key lime juice, and something nectary like peach juice more or less carry the palate, juxtaposed with lightly tart, bready malt notes married to a very subtly vinous, champagne-like flavor. Water crackers, floury, rustic white bread, and a little sourdough tang mix with a light, possibly lactic acidity offer a nice, somewhat subtle counterpoint to the fruit character of this beer. This is insanely drinkable, but then again I’m a junkie for grapefruit and tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel (4.0): A moderate volume of slightly coarse—but still smooth and somewhat soft—carbonation buoys a somewhat slick, just-shy-of-medium-weight body. It finishes nicely dry, aided by a tart, citric acidity that dries out the body substantially before washing out. Absurdly easy to drink, and kind of a crusher.

Overall (3.75): Not quite a radler, not exactly a Berliner, kind of a wheat beer, definitely a fruit beer . . . I really wasn’t exactly sure what to expect with this beer, but the end product is basically a wheaty, peach-grapefruit bellini. But beer. I understand that people are going to have a lot of mixed feelings about this one, but it works for me. Delicioso.

16oz can (best before 24 Nov 2014) poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Opaque/cloudy orange-amber. Initial off-white foam upon pouring died back pretty quickly and left no lacing. Looks quite a bit like a glass of orange/grapefruit juice.

Smell: Definite wheat beer aroma mixed in with citrus - orange and grapefruit.

Taste: Upfront grapefruit and tart orange juice with distinctive wheat beer graininess at the finish followed by more citrus tartness. Really is a juice and beer blend. Tasty and full flavored though but the beer is more of an afterthought. It's there, but not strongly so.

Mouthfeel: Juicy with with a lot of the citric acid/juice sticking to the teeth and giving that "bite" you get from grapefruit juice. Very tart. A light carbonation under it all.

Overall / Drinkability: Keeping in mind that this is a take on a Radler, except it is beer blended with citric juices, overall I think it works but it kind of defies easy style ranking/rating. Soo....it doesn't quite look like or smell like a Radler, but it has a great taste regardless if you're a fan of grapefruit. It's refreshing but I would have a hard time drinking more than one can of this. "Cycliquids"? I can't see drinking this while biking, but I could see it as something very refreshing after a hot day, and I think it would be fantastic with a breakfast omelet. I think this will be a beer that someone will really like or really dislike. It's weird, and works in a "weird is good" way. Not sure I would buy it again except as a breakfast experiment.

3.35/5  rDev 0%

Pours a very cloudy gold brown color with a fizzy 2-3 finger beige head that was full of bubbles and faded quickly, leaving minimal spotty lacing. It looked like a glass of guava juice, literally side by side you could not tell the difference.

Smells of fruit juice, a mix of guava juice, orange juice, grapefruit juice and any other summery fruit you might find in the Caribbean, combined with musty yeast, malt and chewy fruity candy. So far the whole “Mad Scientists’ Laboratory” noted on the can seems spot on as this is just odd in every way.

Tastes like a Zima; it’s a blend of fruit juice, malt, yeast, a pixie stix sugar tube and some grains. The juice blend is like souring Juicy Juice with guava juice, orange juice, grapefruit juice, starfruit, passionfruit and apples.

Mouthfeel is slick and watery, with thick and chewy body, almost no carbonation and a slightly bitter finish that trails off grainy with the sour fruit taste lingering. I had one during the day when it was really hot out a few days ago and it seemed much better, but the second time around has lost its charm. It’s a nice experiment, but not a beer I’d have again nor seek out.

Poured with vigor into a Saison DuPont mini wille glass.

Looks like ruby red grapefruit juice....but sadly a tinge brown

Head held up for a minute or so, receding fairly quick to little if no head at all

Smell is red grapefruit, lemon, sodacap candy and wheat. Reminiscent of a Berliner. Very inviting

They were right. This is like no other beer out there (at least in my neck of the hood). Red grapefruit plays the fiddle here. It's lemony too, but when all facets blend together, the result is somewhat odd. I like it, don't get me wrong, but it seems a bit homebrewey to me, like they could have worked on this a bit more. Funnily enough, just weeks before it was canned they were tweaking it, which makes me think they rushed this to market.

Anyway, I drank about 14 ounces and unknowingly let the last 2 ounces sit for a good 25 minutes. Those last two ounces were marginally better.

Unique beer for sure, and I can't say that I won't be back, but it probably won't be until 2015

I have 7 more cans, and knowing me, my opinion will get better through more experience. I can also see using this as a blend beer perhaps with something that you give it some more beer flavor. You can easily forget you are drinking a beer here.

I give credit to SP for doing something different. I also thank them for sending these to me. Very kind folks at SP. I remain a fan.

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass.

A - Maybe the most interesting looking beers I've ever poured. It looks like a mildly carbonated glass of Sunny Delight.

S - Not too much smell, but a faint whiff of tart grapefruit

T - The first thing I thought of was "wow, this tastes just like ruby red grapefruit juice." There is a nice balance of sweet and sour and going on, it's pretty tart up front, but that mellows out quickly. Super refreshing.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty thick for the style, but it doesn't take away from the overall refreshment factor and it's not cloying at all

O - I was expecting something along the lines of a Stiegl Grapefruit Raddler, but this beer is nothing like that (or any other traditional raddler, really). It really drinks closer to a glass of juice than it does a beer. If you are looking for another standard raddler you'll probably be disappointed, but I really do give Sixpoint props for putting something totally unique out for the summer that is refreshing and flavorful.

16oz can with a Best Before Date of 24Nov2014 stamped underneath the can. Pours a cloudy pinkish orange color with an inch of head. The aroma is grapefruit, wheat, and some light lemon, but mostly grapefruit. The taste is lots of grapefruit upfront followed by some tartness and light wheat flavors. Hints of bready malts with lots of grapefruit at the finish. Bitter, slightly sour and super refreshing. Not a whole lot of beer-y taste to this one, the flavor is dominated by the grapefruit, but I am not complaining. Mouthfeel is basically like carbonated fruit juice. Extremely easy to drink and refreshing. Not a hug Radler/Shandy fan but this is a fine offering. Overall, I may grab some more for the summer months.

16oz can poured into Spiegelau tulip.

A: Pours an almost opaque pink-apricot orange with white, fast dissipating head. Once the head is gone, it just looks like a glass of juice.

S: Wheat, banana, and grapefruit.

T: Acidic, pineapple juice, banana, grapefruit juice, and wheat. It's basically juice.

M: Medium body, low carbonation. Refreshing.

O: This is my first 'radler'. Could see myself packing one of these in my beach bag, or having side-by-side with my breakfast cereal. Not bad for what it is, but I'm still on the fence with this style.

It is the Fourth of July, early in the morning and I am declaring my independence from bottled beer for the time being. Welcome to The CANQuest (TM), boys and girls! Buckle your seat belts and hold onto your hats, 'cause this is one wild ride!

From the CAN: "Beer Is Culture"; "No one in their right mind woulld dispute it being ... TOTALLY RADICAL."; "Sixpoint RAD is a unique blend of fruit juices with ale to create the original summer crusher. The first Sick Liquid from the Mad Scientists' laboratory - a refreshing take on what beer [CAN] be."; "Must be kept refrigerated. Always crush responsibly."; "beer for Beasts".

The Crack! revealed another brimful craft CAN and I found out that the reason for this is that it reduces head space before the lid is applied and seamed. Good to know! I celebrated with an inverted Glug that resulted in a pseudo-cascade which formed a finger of fizzy orangish head that quickly fell to wisps. I have to cop to mild amusement at seeing what was in my glass. This beer was a murky pinkish-orange (SRM = > 7, < 9) and looked a whole lot like fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. Nose had an odd vegetal aroma to go with the intense grapefruit tartness and a malty sweetness. I CAN dig the latter two, but I don't get where that green vegetable matter came from. It was like one of those homemade V-8 drinks where you put everything into a food processor and liquefy them. Mouthfeel was thin, but very effervescent, kind of like soda pop. The taste left no doubt that this employed actual grapefruit juice, but the tartness was overpowering. Phew! I found myself smacking my lips after every draught and I came to the CANclusion that these were going to be a tough sixteen ounces. I would have been happier with just eight or twelve ounces, instead. Finish gave off banana esters, leading me to wonder what kind of "ale" had been used. Hefeweizen? The more I drank of it, the more I was coming to think of it as grapefruit juice, which I do like, actually, and how I usually take it. With eggs and coffee, natch! I broke out some eggs and coffee and when paired with them, it became much more palatable. Still, I would not need more than a couple, at the most. It was definitely a "Sick Liquid" and I will be interested to see what the "Mad Scientists" come up with next.
