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.

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

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.
