This wasn't what I expected at all. The best attribute is its look, which is an amber and orange with a foamy head. Aroma is ok, mainly grapefruit. From there it goes downhill for me. It tastes like orange crush much less like grapefruit. I detected neither hops, wheat or any other beer flavors. The feel is light and easy. The low ABV gave me no buzz whatsoever. Despite its lightness, I cannot call it so drinkable because of the cloying artificial sweetness. Not for me.

Best before end: 11/2015. 3.2% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grapefruit, grapefruit juice, and grapefruit candy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, grapefruit juice, and grapefruit soda flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and super easy to drink, but it is much more like a grapefruit soda than beer in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

not sure how this stuff is coming into prominence, i know the style is in, especially in the summer, but this is pretty rough stuff. i agree that the grapefruit side of it seems authentic, not artificial, but the thing is way too sweet, and its more of a juice than a beer, not much of the hefe coming through the orange juice textured beverage. i mean, this is almost pulpy in feel, beyond shandy, and the only part of the beer side i really get is the yeast, which exacerbates the fruity side. so much sugar on the back end, heavy in the gut, weirdly acidic, it just doesnt resolve like i hoped it would. ive been a fan of radler and shandy generally, we need more stuff like that, but this one is downright undrinkable. too sweet to be refreshing, but thats just my palate. as far away from beer as anything ive had marketed as such.

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

Drank a few of these at the Columbus World Beer Fest while waiting in line for a couple of better beers. Extremely pleasing drink, highly drinkable, surprisingly tasty. Red grapefruit, and much more in a sweet delectable way than a citrusy or hoppy way.

It reminded me more of a wine cooler than it did a beer. Very flavored. Nice finish. Your girlfriend will probably like it more than you will.

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!
