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!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 500mL can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium yellow-orange hue with plenty of haze and a thick finger of pillowy white foam. A very nice looking beer, if a bit on the orange side for a hefeweizen (though this should be expected).

Smell: big, rich grapefruit aroma with a little bit of malty, wheaty undertone. The grapefruit is quite strong, like a San Pellegrino pompelmo soda. This beer is definitely as-advertised.

Taste: there's a surprisingly good hefeweizen base, with a good wheaty character with a great banana quality. Over this is the refreshing grapefruit flavor, which really works for me. Nice!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, satisfyingly creamy carbonation. Boom!

Overall: I really like this beer, and I find it delightfully refreshing. I happen to really enjoy radlers, shandies and the like, and this beer is no exception; radlers almost belong in their own category.

Serving type: can

Picked this one up at Vintage Estate for $1.99. Never seen a half Hefeweizen half grapefruit juice combo. Into a pint glass

A - Looks just like the glass a hazy amber grapefruit color with a 1/2 inch of head that settles to an attractive lace ring.
S - Overripe grapefruit, mild wheat notes, and some coriander it smells pretty sweet and good. I sip.
T - Grapefruit has never tasted better. Not overall tart or dry it mends well with the Hefeweizen base which is mostly wheat and banana. Decent fruit beer.

M - Light to medium it's light but very session able.

Overall I have not had too many Grapefruit beers so this was a good find. German quality Hefeweizen with quality juice mixed. I would drink it again a great summer beer!
