look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

First tried this beer at the minnesota state fair. Instantly became on of my favorite beers i have tried... been looking all over for this beer but found out it is only available on tap.

Pours light in color, some lace

Taste delicous, you get a mouth full of the grapefruit flavoring along with other characteristics that balance it out nicely.

Smells Sweet

Overall this beer is at the top of my list and i hope thye release in bottle/cans soon

Serving type: on-tap

4.3/5  rDev +29.1%
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 -21.6%
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.

Shocked Radler pours a bright straw color with a small non lacing head. There is a mellow grapefruit aroma. The taste is sweet, and fruity, lots of grapefruit, as it warms up the grapefruit gets overpowering. Very light flavors, yet the grapefruit still gets overpowering. refreshing, decent carbonation. Overall its a funky beer, light fruity, very refreshing, however its nearly undrinkable.

3.14/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

16 oz can into a pint glass

Ap- pours a slightly hazy, very light yellow color with 1/2 inch head that doesn't stick around long

Ar- grapefruit definitely and maybe some other citrus notes, but really all I'm getting is grapefruit

T- very, very sweet, almost tastes like a wine cooler more than a beer, the grapefruit really only comes through at the end

M- sticky, very light bodied with decent carbonation

O- hmmm, not sure about this one. It would be super, super good on a really hot day on the lake, but I'm not really sure if I would want this any other time. Just too sweet and too much like a wine cooler for me. That being said it is very refreshing!

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.75

16-oz can into craft pint glass

A - 4-finger white head, transparent (slightly cloudy) body of straw yellow, moderate amount of carbonation

S - sweet pink grapefruit

T - sickly-sweet pink grapefruit, strongly resembles a soft drink

M - thick medium body, high carbonation

O - The cloying sweetness is a major drawback. I'd prefer a citrus soda to this.
