3.04/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours slightly hazed golden with a thin head.

The smell is of musty grapefruit soda.

The taste is of grain and grapefruit juice/soda.

Maybe more of a malty base would help this? Not much too it, on the fizzy side with a musty character that doesn't blend so well with the grapefruit character.

To be honest, I prefer Stiegl's version.

Serving type: on-tap

Sampled last night on 5/23/14. Love the art work as the plane is a U.S. F6F 'Hellcat' that was used in the Pacific during WWII. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled glass stein.

Pours a light straw-yellow in color with no head and no lacing really to speak of. the aroma is of sweet citrus and malts. The taste is the same but with LOTS of red grapefruit taste coming through with the ale taste for the finish. Great taste and goes down very easy. Perfect carbonation for this type of brew. Really liked this summer seasonal.

2.7/5  rDev -18.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle into a clear beer mug.

Appearance: Very pale yellow with light carbonation that leaves little or no white fizzy foam on top. No retention or lacing at all. Leaves a slight cap of white fizzy carbonation throughout.

Smell: Faintly sweet and malty. Not much grapefruit or hops going on in the aroma.

Taste: Very sweet and fruity with slight malty beer beneath it. No crisp grapefruit hops aroma or flavor at all. Not what I was expecting, it's far too tame and watered down.

Mouth feel: Watery, thin and just lightly carbonated.

Overall: I have had quite a few Austrian Radler's by Stiegl Brewing and Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizens over the years, and I was really hoping Schell's was trying to duplicate that, or maybe even go a bit bolder with flavors...but this rendition is far too sweet, watery and lacking in grapefruit bite to compare. This one just leaves me wanting to go get some Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen instead.

4.3/5  rDev +29.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a light straw-yellow that is almost completely clear. Small, 1 finger head forms and retains very well. Lacing is ok.

S- Light and fruity. Plenty of grapefruit is displayed in the smell along with a little lemony flavor.

T- Light and fruity, just like the scent. Starts with a big dose of grapefruit and moves toward a slightly grassy, lighter beer flavor at the end. Grapefruit is sweet, almost like a soda. The beer flavors on the back end shows just a little bit of grain and the tiniest bit of hops.

M- Light, highly carbonated, and very refreshing. This is my definition of a summer beer. Incredibly easy drinking; I could have a sixer of this while mowing the lawn.

Overall, a very refreshing, somewhat sweet, and pretty much delicious beer. The style is one that lends itself to refreshing summer drinking.

2.61/5  rDev -21.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.25

Appearance - A clear straw color. A normal pour yielded a 2 finger head which stuck around for awhile. Decent lacing.

Smell - Sweet Grapefruit. That is all I'm getting

Taste - This is very one dimensional. Puckering grapefruit. Very sweet. A hint of pale malt but I really have to search for it.

Mouthfeel - Thin body and low to medium carbonation.

Overall - The grapefruit is really overpowering in this beer. I like grapefruit, but this is hard to finish. If it had higher carbonation and less grape fruit / more malt - it could be good. Disappointing for something I had been looking forward to trying.
