A- Pours a very hazy and pale straw in color. A sizable head forms but isn't around too long, reducing to a small film on the top of the beer.Lacing is minimal, but this beer's looks compare to the best looking hefe's (minus the head).

S- Very light wheaat beer scents up front before the all out sweet and fruity assault on the nose. Grapefruit is not only prominent, but dominating and sweet in the smell. Not much else to this scent, and it borderlines being a straight soda scent.

T- Sweet and fruity flavor of the grapefruit right up front that dominates throughout the drink. Sweet grapefruit flavor presides over the entire drink, with just the slightest wheat beer profile going on in the background. Towards the end of the drink, the grapefruit turns a little more tart, but is still sweet on the whole.

M- Light, crisp, sweet, and refreshing, there isn't much more to say than this is how a radler is supposed to feel.

Overall, a delicious and thirst quenching radler. If it's hot as hell out, drink this; at the beach, on the lawn mower, or just sweating your ass off it will do the trick.

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.
