Bottle into my Innis & Gunn tulip.

So I got to try a sip of this at a liquor store and was impressed. Very impressed. Especially when told that it was under 2.5% abv! I have always wanted to find a super low abv beer that was enjoyable and refreshing...

Anyway, my initial reaction to that first sip was to rate this beer a 4.75 as a "had," but now in reviewing it I have realized that it is a little too much like soda--- and there is no trace of beer underneath. The sparkling sweetened grapefruit soda is still quite refreshing anyway.

It looks like a slightly carbonated lemonade-- little hazy, yellowish pale color, small white head of loose lazy bubbles that fizzled away quickly and left no sign of ever existing.

Smells like hard lemon candy-- maybe lemonheads? with some big grapefruit notes. Really sweet... Sugary sweet. The crisp citrus flavors are refreshing and tasty, but there is no bitterness. There is no beer flavor at all. This really is a grapefruit soda blended with beer, but it tastes like something make by Mike's hard Lemonade.

The body is thin and light, the low carbonation is actually pretty nice because it doesn't leave me feeling bloated and gassy.

Overall--- a little more beer, a little less soda, this could be wonderful! As it is, unless I find this in cans (most unlikely!), I won't be grabbing it very often. For what this is: a low ABV refreshing summertime beer/soda, it is quite tasty.

This is classified as a fruit beer, which I suppose might be where it belongs, but in comparing this to other Radlers I've had, I must say that this is EASILY the best one.... So my numbers represent a rating compared to other Radlers, and not necessarily to fruit beers in general.

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

500 ml can. 40% beer and 60% fruit soda. Hmmm.

A: Pours a cloudy grapefruit juice color (pale straw yellow) under 2-fingers of white head which fades quickly to the rim and leaves just a few spots.

N: Grapefruit and just a slight bit of malt.

T: Follows nose with a mildly sweet soda note.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes fruity and spritzy, zesty.

O: Surprised with the crisp refreshment and easy drinking.
