Poured a sight orange hue with a two finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured a heavy sweet citrus.

The taste was likewise heavily sweet - remember Ecto-cooler? There was a soft chewy wheat detected as well.

The mouthfeel was smooth with a soft carbonation.

Overall more juice than beer. Tasty, but barely beer.

.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.

Yes the alcohol content is disappointing but overall the look, smell and taste are really suprisingly good. Very refreshing tasty summer beer, will buy again (and might see how it mixes with a half a shot of vodka)

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

Smells good but the taste is a bit too sweet instead of tart.

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!

Poured a cloudy golden body with three fingers of thick, bubbly white head that stuck around, slowly lingering to a thick cap of white foam. Overall impression of appearance is of a Hefeweizen in body, with a head that while similar to a Hefeweizen, is also a bit more bubbly. Scents of grapefruit juice, with just the slightest hint of malt. Overall impression of aroma is of a typical grapefruit radler, refreshing and fruity. Flavor begins with the flavor of a grapefruit soda, albeit a very good one,matin a restrained sweetness that is lower than that typical to a standard soda. Middle continues these flavors. Finish continues grapefruit flavors and is sweet at the end, with just a touch of sweet malt and some discernible banana esters and clove phenols from the Hefeweizen. Aftertaste is grainy, cracker-like wheat malt, grapefruit peel and clove phenols. Overall impression of flavor is of a crisp, refreshing radler with a restrained sweetness and a good amount of the Hefeweizen on display. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high, effervescent carbonation and a crisp feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good radler, combining the soda-like qualities with the Hefeweizen. Overall this is a good, refreshing summer beer, as is traditional. It doesn't have the full complement of flavors of a Hefeweizen, but the flavors are present enough that this is more than a soda. The restraint in the sweetness is a good choice, as it allows the beer to avoid being cloying. Fairly well done commercial example of a radler.
