I'm normally not such a pessimist about beers, but this one pissed me off.
Sure, radlers aren't entirely beer, but this went beyond that. Aside from a small aftertaste of beer, this tasted entirely like grapefruit soda.

I was extremely disappointed.
Between the carbonation (a bit thinner than soda), the sweetness (about as sweet as soda), and the flavor (hardly any beer taste. Grapefruit taste was good but not worth getting over a soda), everything was just grapefruit soda.

This is a beer review site, so I'm reviewing it as a beer. I dislike sodas because they're too sweet, and this is just as sweet. Hardly any noticeable beer taste either.

Not recommended.
Recommend to try Schöfferhofer Grapefruit. Even Waterloo radler was better in my opinion (but still not recommended).

Think overly sweetened grapefruit "lemon" ade. It's quenching but not very beer like. Would do well with the cider crowd I think.

Cloudy pale yellow appearance with bubbly head that quickly disappears leaving no lacing, similar to pop. Smell consists of lemon, grapefruit, malt and sweetness.

Taste is similar to the smell, citrus and grapefruit with a sweet malty taste. Picked up a hint of grain as well. Light bodied with high carbonation. Very sour and dry finish, this is less of a beer and more of a fruit soft drink.

As stated before, this tastes nothing like a beer and more like a light grapefruit flavored pop. Overall; this is a simple and refreshing fruit beer, but the tartiness ruins it for me.

16.9 oz can into a wine glass.

A: Pours a cloudy straw color. The head sucks - it's a finger high (white shade), and it fades as quickly as your average internet meme. No lacing, either. Yeah...this isn't a pretty offering.

S: Pure fuckin' grapefruit juice. It's tart as hell, and just a bit sweet. This honestly smells like a GOOD grapefruit juice, rather than some artificial crap. If there's anything that deserves a demerit or two, it's the fact I pick up very little in the way of beer. Maybe - maaaybe - a touch of malt comes through, but other than that, it's basically glorified grapefruit juice.

T: A bit sweeter than what the nose indicated. Again, the opening flavors are almost purely grapefruit soda. What makes this weird is how the back end seems a bit weird - maybe it's the way the beer and the soda are interacting (maybe my ass, that's exactly what's going on), but I'm getting tones of black pepper, grilled chicken, and lemon. A strange offering, this one.

M: Infinitely, endlessly crushable. Sure, it's VERY sweet by beer standards, and very gassy, but they're both spot-on for a soda. The body is light, which compensates somewhat for the sugary stickiness I'm getting. Oh well, radler.

O: I don't think I've gotten used to radlers after having this. It isn't bad, it just isn't very beer-y to me. To its credit, the fact it's far closer flavor wise to a soda means that beer haters could easily enjoy putting a few of these down.

2.7/5: More soda than beer; there will definitely be fans of this, though
