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?

Seems like straight GF juice added to a light Hefe.

I really like grapefruit juice, but I thought this just tasted like orange. Alcohol too low to get a decent buzz. Felt more like an orange soda with a beer aftertaste.

well, I guess it is obvious that this is not quite a beer, but really tasty from a non grapefruit person, nice summer beverage.

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.

An refreshing drink for warm days. It's 50% grapefruit juice. Vitamin C is a bonus, but cochineal extract is a turnoff for me. It would be much cheaper to spike your own grapefruit juice, but this is smooth and there is an underlying malt sweetness blending with the grapefuit flavor.

Everyone seemed to love this beer. To me, it tasted pretty much like a grapefruit soda pop. Nothing wrong with that, just isn’t something I’m going to rave about.

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

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

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Reminded me of drinking an orange soda. Very sweet for the style with the grapefruit slightly subdued. A beer that even non-beer drinkers can quaff down on a hot summer afternoon.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy and vibrant tangerine orange color with a nice billowy white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is dominated by a grapefruit smell. With the strong grapefruit comes some lighter notes of a yeasty and grainy smell mixed with just a hint of a musty smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather sweet and sugary flavor with lots of grapefruit soda tastes and a little bit of lemon taste. As the taste advances the sugary sweet flavors fade ever so slightly, but are by no means on the light side by the end. All the while, some more hefenweizen flavors work their way to the tongue with a wheat and yeasty flavor developing more toward the middle and to the end. With a bit of a grainy and grassy taste coming at the finish, one is left with a grapefruit soda and slightly wheaty and yeasty taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew was quite thin and watery, but had a high level of carbonation. The feel was spot on for the grapefruit soda flavor mixed with the hefenweizen tastes of the brew. Rather refreshing and very drinkable.

Overall – A rather easy drinking and refreshing summer style beverage. A little sweeter then I would normally want, but if I was ever feeling like something light, grapefruity sweet and refreshing on a hot summer day, then this one may be a decent go to.

It tastes like straight up grapefruit juice, that's all I can say. But it's refreshing and enjoyable for what it is. I'd down a sixer no problem and at the 2.5% ABV I might not even have a buzz.

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.

Pours a hazed orangeish color with a white head that crackles away. The aroma has grapefruit and wheat notes. The grapefruit hefeweizen mix smells refreshing though somewhat artificial. The taste has bright grapefruit and even lemonade like flavor, and there is some wheat there too. Sweeter, fizzy but does have a little hefe clove note which supports the grapefruit. Tastes like a wheat beer with flavored syrup added, which is exactly what this is. Light bodied, highly carbonated shandy. Overall, not a bad drink, its refreshing, a bit artificial tasting, but its alright. Breakfast beer if you ask me.

This was good... but it's only half beer. It really did taste more like grapefruit juice than beer, thankfully I do love grapefruit juice. Obviously very drinkable, but I don't think I'd get it again.

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

330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 12/2015. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero presence as expected of 2.5%. Overall this is a nice radler style. All around good robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Thank you Mickey Mouse for turning me on to this. Had it at Epcot in Florida and fell in love. I found it locally and nearly fainted. I'll update after I've had a few
