.33L clear bottle with a BB date of 9/2015.
Unusual appearance, but does look like a hefeweizen with grapefruit juice.
The smell is largely citrus rind and grapefruit juice, but there's a nice mix of hefeweizen with grapefruit juice in the flavor.
Refreshing; exceptionally fruity; lightly sweet. (301 characters)

Refreshing drink however a little to sweet for me. Drinks more like a soda than beer. Grapefruit is slightly medicinal. (121 characters)

Smells good but the taste is a bit too sweet instead of tart. (61 characters)

3.2% abv by weight as listed on the label that may come out to 2.5% abv let me check my math. Appears a glowing orange hue in the glass, bright white head stays pretty resilient with high carbonation I'm guessing this is marketed toward bicyclists and women in Germany. Aroma has straight up sugared grapefruit peel notes, just like slicing into a grapefruit in the AM for the breakfast option sprinkled with some sugar to make it more palatable. Flavor sugar coated grapefruit soda with really pith and peel notes coming out definitely dries out as the sweetness fades with the bitterness from the rind, pith, and peel of actual grapefruits probably harmed in the making of this beer. Good thing I popped a Prilosec earlier and I've noticed that I started a regimen of proton pump inhibitors in the last few weeks. Citric notes kill in this beer it's a mimosa bottled up with grapefruit zest character throughout even the essential oils were bottled in this beer. Enough sugar was added but this is definite real grapefruit juice and others parts added, mouthfeel brings sturdy carbonation a tart citric juice finish with the zest adding to the balance. Overall well done not as wretched as I would expect from such a beer, but I'm good for one and done not much of a session ale or you'll be puking grapefruit zest out your nares just do to the actual sugar content added to this Grapefruit hefeweizen from Schofferhofer! (1,423 characters)

This one looks like grapefruit juice, a heavily thick red-orange. It doesn't from a whole lot of head, but it does put up some, and the foam that's left for the remainder is strong. Some sturdy patching as well as spotting are left behind.
This beer definitely brings the grapefruit advertised. It's a very interesting take on a hefe, and in an possibly American-inspired turn, the only flavored one I've ever seen. The grapefruit is the dominant force, but the telltale signs of hefeweizen are here: a touch of banana, some dustiness in the malts, a bit of soft clove, and maybe just a faint, very faint, ghost of some bubble gum-like sweetness. Wheat makes itself known as the backbone, and the finish is of some dry, crackery malts and slight ruby red sourness.
The feel isn't as thick or heavy as it seems it might be, but it doesn't have the slight, subtle depth typical to the best of the style. Still, it's light enough and has a nice, sturdy crispness with enough body that's it's not simply a soda. (1,007 characters)
