look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Tasted 21 July 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours a very pale straw yellow. Clear, with one fizzy finger of head. Loads of visible carbonation, looking like a soda, no surprise.

Smells like grapefruit soda. Tart, with only a little of that nasty bitterness that some grapefruits (and grapefruit beverages) have.

This tastes like amazing grapefruit soda, with a faint hint of beer. I really like this, but is it reasonable to call it beer? The only beer flavor I get is a mild malty sweet bend in the back.

Feel is nice, but again it's more soda than beer. Thin, fizzy prickly carbonation. Pleasant, even if it's heavily soda-like.

I don't know what to do with this stuff. Other than drink it. As for reviewing it, it's delicious, but it feels like a stretch to call it beer. But I will definitely call it yummy.

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!
