3.65/5 rDev -3.7%
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!

Poured a cloudy, opaque yellow with a thin ring of white lacing and abundant carbonation bubbles. It looks like fresh squeezed juice or a headless hefeweizen. Scents of grapefruit flesh, with just the slightest hint of sweet malt. Not much to the aroma, but it isn't bad, I do love grapefruit. Taste begins with a big hit of sweet grapefruit soda, still slightly sour as one would expect, but sweetness balances it. This prevails throughout, with a little bit of a bitter grapefruit flavor on the finish, though extremely faint. Aftertaste is sweet and faintly bitter grapefruit flesh. A good flavor for a radler, very fruity, full of grapefruit flavor and refreshing, though lacking in the beer flavors. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a slightly tart, puckering feel. The after swallow feel is like after eating grapefruit flesh. Quite nice and very refreshing. Overall this is a good beer for what it is, a radler. It is refreshing, fruity and crisp and does its job well. Not bad.
