T: ruby red grapefruit, very crisp, slight dryness, oats/wheat, slight creaminess to it, very refreshing.

Overall: this beer is begging to be consumed in mass quantities in summer, right up there with Stiegl Radler. Bring me the heat & beach!

Enjoyed this hefe quite alot. Was looking for a light change of pace. Although sweet and aromatic and a tiny bit syrupy...the smell, taste and added complexity as it warmed up was a nice surprise. Definitely will have this again!

Look like orange listerine, smells like barf, tastes sweet, sour and delicious. This is a nice transition beer to get kid sister off the stronger Mikes Hard Lemonade and into a nice beer gut inducing brew.

Bonus points. Show up any Blue Moon drinker. Bring a grapefruit and hunting knife to the party. Now you're garnishing like a man!

330 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Purchased for $2.25 CDN from the local LCBO.

Appearance - fluorescent orange, hazy as he'll with a small half finger of white head. Poor retention although not surprising given low ABV. A few lively bubbles are present too.

Smell - grapefruit and nectarine. Pretty good smelling actually.

Taste - grapefruit and lemon comes through here but the bitter tartness just isn't sharp. There's some sweetness that comes through and gives it a sweetened orange like taste. Taste doesn't linger nor is intense. Sweetness intensifies too much and instead of this being refreshing like a radler, it's great for the first two seconds after it hits your lips then the sweetness is too much.

Mouthfeel - lively and spritzy carbonation, feels really good going down the back of the throat. A sickly sweet syrupy feel though shows up a bit at the end.

Overall - an interesting concept, not quite a hefeweizen, but not fully delegated to be a Radler, it's interesting to try, but the sweetness is overkill to my lips.

Very refreshing. Great grapefruit taste. Tend to have fruity, shandy type beers with pasta and this went great.
