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!

Poured a cloudy, opaque yellow with a thin ring of white lacing and abundant carbonation bubbles. It looks like fresh squeezed juice or a headless hefeweizen. Scents of grapefruit flesh, with just the slightest hint of sweet malt. Not much to the aroma, but it isn't bad, I do love grapefruit. Taste begins with a big hit of sweet grapefruit soda, still slightly sour as one would expect, but sweetness balances it. This prevails throughout, with a little bit of a bitter grapefruit flavor on the finish, though extremely faint. Aftertaste is sweet and faintly bitter grapefruit flesh. A good flavor for a radler, very fruity, full of grapefruit flavor and refreshing, though lacking in the beer flavors. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a slightly tart, puckering feel. The after swallow feel is like after eating grapefruit flesh. Quite nice and very refreshing. Overall this is a good beer for what it is, a radler. It is refreshing, fruity and crisp and does its job well. Not bad.

Lemonade yellow with a tint of pink, maybe, or perhaps it's in my head. Super cloudy. Fizzy, from pouring with vigor, then dries up to nearly nothing; just like a soda pop.

Crispy lite grapefruit aroma with zesty intensity. Bright, sweet, and a little acidic; like a good grapefruit soda, but with mucky wheat malts to bring it some extra spank and notes of grain and nuts. Smells wonderful, like a perfume of grapefruit, but not very much like beer.

A tangy radler with a lot of grapefruit soda sweetness and base beer wheatiness. Earthy weisse yeast has a touch of bubblegum, but this beer is grapefruit-dominant. Truly, what it's intended to be... two-fifths beer and three-fifths summery non-beer drinker's delight. Notes of lemon flesh and green apple fight to be tasted. Very refreshing. I'm drinking it on a warm, muggy evening; but I think the beer would look and taste better if it had a golden stream of sunlight shining through it. My only complaints are that it's a tad too carbonically acidic, it lacks much depth of flavor, and it's a bit of a burpy nightmare. For a radler/shandy, we're hitting the nail on the head.
