This is a great beer for a nice hot day, or when you want something on the lighter side. It only has 3.25 ABV so it is very low, it almost tastes like juice. I am not a fan of grapefruit but i absolutely love this beer. This beer goes down very smooth because of the fruity tastes. Even though it is fruit you cans till taste the wheat in the beer.

This will probably come off as being a jerk, but I can't review this as a beer. It doesn't taste like a beer, it doesn't look like a beer. Nothing about it tells me it's a beer except for a bit of an after taste that screams citrusy wheat beer. It is like some combined Squirt, ruby red grapefruit juice, Blue Moon, and sugar. Which is what brings me to my weird scoring on this beer. It looks, smells, tastes, and feels good in the mouth. Just like drinking a soda. And all of those can equally apply to beer. But in this case they don't. It's great in all categories as a soda, but as a beer it is barely passing. Calling this a beer is calling Smirnoff Ice a beer. And a world where Smirnoff Ice is a beer I refuse to exist.

Poured from a tap into a Weizen glass. Never seen this before and thought I'd try it out.

A: Very cloudy with an attractive yellow-orange hue. 1 finger of white head. Minimal lacing. Good looking hefe.

S: GRAPEFRUIT very prominently. Backed up with lighter wheat-type scents. Mostly banana, tropical fruit, orange. Maybe some light spice. Very bold and sweet.

T: Very sweet with prominent grapefruit. Minimal to no hop bitterness, although there is a bitterness associated with the grapefruit flavor. Seems to come in waves. Some tartness, but would benefit from more sour to offset the sweet. More subdued banana. Even lighter spice/clove. Not so complex, but I do enjoy the quality of the fruitiness. Does get a bit cloying by the end. Possibly the sweetest-tasting beer I can recall.

M: Very full. Light carbonation for the style, but I think it works. Drinks quite a bit like grapefruit juice. Pretty smooth.

O: I sucked this one down with the quickness. A bit like grapefruit juice spiked lightly with seltzer, in a way, but I'm ok with that. The hefe characteristics play second fiddle, but were of good quality. Would be nice on a scorching Summer day.

Prost!
