Not a bad beer... kind if a letdown was expecting the crisp sour notes similar to stiegels radler...but then again this is higher % and uses natural fruit juice...the tastes is crisp and refreshing grapefruit aromas and flavs but its at the "almost" too sweet level.... definitely cant drink more than 3 myself...

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden straw yellow with a lot of rising bubbles. Big four finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very spritzy grapefruit forward aroma with some grainy pale malt. Big scent of grapefruit leaps out. Also some fruit hints of orange, apple, and berry. Pale malt with hints of grains, wheat, straw, and crackers. Some sugar adds to the sweetness. Very crisp smelling. Decent for what its going for.

Taste: Like it smells, a very crisp and spritzy grapefruit forward taste with some grainy malt notes. Big taste of grapefruit juice throughout along with some subtle notes of orange, berry, and apple. Sugary sweetness and mild tartness. Pale malt with notes of wheat, cereal grains, straw, and crackers. Light, very crisp, and decent tasting.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Very crisp and fairly tart and juicy. Starts sweet and finishes fairly dry.

Overall: A decent summer quencher. Nice grapefruit flavor although there isn't much there besides the fruit and grain. First "Radler" I've had.

Pretty tasty warm weather beer. You can tell it is pretty light bodied from the pour. Looks like a light lager.

Smells grainy. Sweet. Some grapefruit.

Starts off like a light beer and finishes with sweet grapefruit.

Thin on the palate. Fairly refreshing but perhaps just a bit on the sweet side. It makes it a bit of challange for me to finish.

3.13/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving glass: Poured from can into Weizen glass.

Appearance: Pale straw color with impressive foamy head, at least at first. The head disappears rather quickly, leaving little behind.

Smell: Apple, grapefruit, straw and pepper. Dry aroma.

Taste: The taste is much sweeter, borderline cloying. It tastes like a sweet apple cider with just a touch of grapefruit. Some pepper, straw and bitter grapefruit on the finish, but it is hard to escape the sweetness.

Feel: Light bodied with a finish that could use a serious dosage of dryness.

Overall: I was prepared to hate this beer, but still gve it a decent score because I have a bias against grapefruit. However, this isn't nearly as grapefruity as expected, as it veers off into sweet cider territory. It would have been better if I had hated it for tasting like grapefruit juice, as I would have accepted it as my own bias. Instead, I found sweet apple cider. If I was a big grapefruit fan, I would be pissed.

3.51/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured 16oz pint can into a pint glass

Appearance: Pale, yellow, light. Slightly fizzy.

Smell: Reminds me of a Ruby Red squirt mixed with alcohol. Grapefruit and sugar.

Taste: Sweet and sugary. Once again reminds me of a ruby red squirt.

Mouth feel: Much less carbonation than I was expecting. Slightly watery and mild carbonation.

Overall: I appreciate the attempt at creating a Stiegl style radler that actually contains sufficient alcohol (unlike Stiegl) but this is just average. Not too bad, but nothing special... Just like everything else Schell has to offer.
