Odd. Grapefruit (?) over-rides the weizen flavor. Malt takes a back seat. Tangy. Bland... still acidic. I'm not sure what the draw of this is. Is it that it's lower alcohol, and different than other "radlers"? Refreshing, but limited in terms of a beer. Narrow flavor profile.

A big shout out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is dominated by grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, a bit sweet, well carbonated, more soda like than beer like. Feels light in the mouth and overall was a nice change of pace, but wouldn't want this all the time.

.33L clear bottle with a BB date of 9/2015.
Unusual appearance, but does look like a hefeweizen with grapefruit juice.
The smell is largely citrus rind and grapefruit juice, but there's a nice mix of hefeweizen with grapefruit juice in the flavor.
Refreshing; exceptionally fruity; lightly sweet.

500 mL can dated 04/2015 at 40 degrees into weizen glass
Aroma of grapefruit
Head large (6 cm), white, frothy, very slowly diminishing to 5 mm layer
Lacing – none
Body medium yellow, cloudy
Flavor very grapefruity – nothing else comes through; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, creamy, lively carbonation

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3, Overall 3.375. Final weighted score: 3.425
Although I love grapefruit if that was all I wanted, I’d have eaten one. The grapefruit is definitely present, overriding all the hefeweizen characteristics except cloudiness – no yeast phenolics are to be found.
