3.15/5 rDev -17.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: light silvery-golden hue with a touch of haze; rather a lot like the appearance of a witbier, although without any kind of head at all. It's OK.
Smell: a very pleasant grapefruity aroma with a hint of chalky malt underneath. Pretty nice; the beer is as advertised.
Taste: grapefruit and malt work together much better in the aroma than in the flavor. At first the grapefruit is at the fore, but as the beer component edges in there's a bit of a dirty, wet-grainy, murky character that just isn't great. Not terrible, but not particularly pleasant.
Mouthfeel: light body with a decently prickly carbonation. Not too bad.
Overall: not exactly my bag, this radler. The aroma is pretty enticing, but once you get into the flavor it kind of falls apart. Perhaps it would be better on a really hot day or something.
Serving type: bottle
