It's like drinking sweet grapefruit juice, which in my opinion is not a bad thing.

This is a great beer when looking for something different. I will definitely add this to my selection when company is over.

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.

Loved this beer! After I finished the first 6-pack, I went back to Joe's produce, and bought the rest of their stock. They informed me that there would be no additional shipments from Germany. I am now scouring the other stores in my area! Excellent summer beer!

I feel this thing accomplished exactly what it was trying to do. No is not a whale. No its not insanely complex. But when put against holy gose and jai ali on a 95 degree beach day..... give me this.

Quick review. This brew is fun for a hot day. Drinks a bit more like a radler than a hefe, the sweetish grapefruit component reads kind of more like soda on the palate. Still - looks & smells amazing, nice carbonated mouthfeel & great taste.

The only thing it's missing is that beautiful alcohol content that gets you buzzing. I personally would recommend this beer with a floater of vodka. Cheers boys! On to the next one.

L: ruby orange/pink grapefruit color, mid/high carbonation, large creamy thick 2 finger head.

N: dry, tart, ruby red grapefruit, soft wheat & oats.

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

B: medium body, slight dry/prickly crispness, incredibly 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!

the facts are this, this is not a manly beer, but it is very refreshing and can be drank in volume and not be hammered. It has a nice fruit soda color is heavily carbonated and it is a very refreshing drink on a hot day. I wonder what this would taste spiked with other booze?

Good refreshing summer beer. Tastes like a soda, my can says 3.2% however.

It's been a while since having it that I review it, so it will be a short and informal description regarding the beer itself.

A great mix of grapefruit flavors with a mild beer. Extremely mild (undetectable) alchol taste, nice mellow tasty beer flavor, will a full scoop of grapefruity-goodness.

If you're into beer and not soda/pop —yet still want something extremely fruity and refreshing— I recommend this over grapefruit radlers like Steigl or Waterloo which were too sweet and soda-like.

Light orange body with a quarter inch of white head. Nice aroma, with grapefruit rind, tangy, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Juicy and tasty. Easy drinking and not too sweet. A solid example of the style. Refreshing and light with bold flavor. I'd have this again.

Really enjoyed this. Very refreshing and great taste. Cannot taste the alcohol at only 2.5% ABV.

Poured a rather bright orange colour (like a muted fanta orange) with a fizzy bubbly head that disappeared pretty quickly.

Smells very citrussy and sweet with wheaty notes.

Has a very subtle and moreish grapefruit citrus/wheaty beer flavour. Very pleasant and refreshing.

Light on the palate and not too heavy on the fizz. Is going down very fast. I could drink this all night.

Could be construed as a girly alcopop type drink (just without the alcopop tax)
