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

From a 330 ml clear bottle that came in a 6 pack. Pours out a cloudy light marmalade hue, fizzy white head that quickly sets to a thin cap.

Intense bright grapefruit juice on the nose, faint soft wheat malt in the background.

The flavour is predominantly that of sweet ruby red grapefruit juice, with some faint, very faint bready malt in the background. I happen to like grapefruit so it's enjoyable, however seems much more like carbonated juice, or a traditional fruit soda.

Mouthfeel is light and thin, the texture carries a bit of fullness from the wheat malt, while the carbonation is brisk and spritzy.

An okay lawnmower beer for those not very mechanically inclined and fearing the loss of their toes (as this a lightweight 2.5%), quenching all the same, but not something I plan on picking up again. A low-alcohol fruit radler for those into that sort of thing.

This beer really surprised me. I got a sample at The Wurst Place (Seattle) after I was told it was one of only 2 beers that have a permanent handle there out of 23 craft beers. 2.5%? Really? How good could it be? It was awesome. Well, that's IF you like grapefruit juice which I do. They called it their "breakfast beer". It poured a hazy, light pink/orange and seriously tasted just like grapefruit juice. I had a .5 litre in the Schöfferhofer glass and totally enjoyed it.
