3.65/5 rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
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.
Serving type: bottle

a. White/yellow cloudy with a .5 finger white head that disappears in seconds.
s. Grapefruit and white wine. Smell goes funky quickly.
t. Reminds me of a Bartles and James wine cooler circa 1985. Sweet, some grapefruit without a lot of bite.
m. Very watery. Goes down easy, almost too easy.
O. Good beer.

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.
Serving type: can
