Perhaps the most pleasantly surprising beer I've ever had. In the past I've had shandys disliked them all. I love grapefruit, and grapefruit hops notes, but the few grapefruit juice infused beers I've had have been terrible. Here, the light, almost airy beer married very well with the grapefruit. Exceptionally hazy, like a super-yeasty hefeweizen. Clean grapefruit juice aroma. Moderately sweet, balanced nicely by the grapefruit bitterness and slight acidity. A nice example of a low alcohol German quaffer - it cries out for a hot, lazy day.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #66 (July 2012):
LOOK: Fizzy head, hazy yellow straw
SMELL: Fresh grapefruit juice, zest, faint graininess, soda, clean
TASTE: Crisp, slick, lighter body, tart, grapefruit zest, juicy, sweet, hint of alcohol, cereal, faint bitterness, almonds; tart, dry finish
Imagine working outside on a blistering hot day ... you want something that is going to quench your thirst, but also something sweet, not so alcoholic and still beer-ish. It’s as simple as cutting a beer with soda. Stiegl opted for grapefruit rather than the traditional lemon here. Surprised this style has not caught on in the US yet—good drinking for what it is.

A wonderful summer brew that always tastes great, very refreshing. Enjoy the citrus grapefruit taste. It blends seamlessly with the beer enhancing the overall taste and experience. Very crisp! Also enjoy the Lemon Radler from Stiegl, but the grapefruit is my favorite!
