Pours very clouded grapefruit colored. A white fizzy head leaves a thin ring and some vanishing lace.
The smell is of a pleasant "gourmet" grapefruit soda with a touch of grain.
The taste of a nicely made grapefruit soda has a sweet malt backbone. Finishes crisp and refreshing.
Incredibly smooth, the carbonation is more beer-like and fizzy soda-like. Crisp. Grapefruit hangs on in the aftertaste.
Compared to some other radlers and shandies I've had, this is much better. If you like grapefruit, this is a solid choice for a low-alcohol thirst-quencher!

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!
