Unusually strong fresh, light taste of grapefruit with a sweet, non-bitter finish. Very refreshing on a summer day. Beer is light and presents in a slightly frosted clarity--reminds me a little of Fresca when it wasn't a diet drink. Golden Amber color with a citrus smell. Served ice cold.

A: Poued light in color, like a pink lemondae would, with a nice white head which dissipates quickly.
S: Loads of grapefruit juice with a note of Sprite like soda citrus.
T: Initial taste was grapefruit, but not overpowering grapefruit that would make you ppucker. Instead, this tasted like a blend of Sprite and grapefruit juice. A little sweet and somewhat dry on the finish
M: Light body, crisp, dry, high on the carbonation. All citrus here.
O: Not bad. I could see this being a good lawnmower or picnic beer for sure.

I picked up a can of this because it is on sale at my store currently. All the ladies love this one, and understandably so because this does not really resemble beer at all. Not to sound sexist or anything. It's true though.
Anyway, I poured it from the can into a hefeweizen glass. In hindsight I should have just drunk it out of the can, but I kind of wanted to see what it looks like. It looks exactly like pineapple, but obviously not pulpy.
The smell is sweet and rich with grapefruit. Grapefruit is one of my favourite fruits to pair with beer, and there are so many great ones in my region (Alley Kat Grapefruit, Whistler Grapefruit ale for example) that settling for this seems a little odd. Regardless, it smells nice.
The taste is okay and certainly palatable, although it is really sweet, something I am not fond of with fruit beers. The grapefruit flavour is decent though, and the base beer they use is pretty good, which makes a huuuge difference.
Feel is good, mild carbonation makes this a real patio beer. There's nothing bad about this beer when you really look at it (except that it is a stretch to call it beer), but it's overrated. Still, if you can't stomach beer, this is something to try.

A- Pours out super cloudy like a lemonade, which I guess makes plenty of sense. Head is super fizzy, between beer and soda (again) and bubbles away pretty quickly after forming to about a finger high. It all falls down to just a tiny ring that leaves almost no lace, not surprising in the least.
S- Smells just like you are cutting open a grapefruit, not quite that strong but still like a pretty fresh fruit. Some lemon and general citrus feel in there too. Some light beer maltiness in the background.
T- Strong grapefruit citrus up front but it doesn't dominate quite like it does in the nose. The fruit still feels nice and fresh and reminds me of a really good soda, I would like to try the base soda too. A general light malty and yeasty beer feel is diluted by the soda and shows up in the background.
MF- Highly carbonated and fizzy but impressively not as watery as I expected, still some silky feel to it. Fairly tart throughout in a super light end body.
Someone recommended this to me and I was somewhat skeptical but this is pretty good for what it is. Super refreshing and drinks like water, it goes down that easily. Good fresh grapefruit feel.

Enjoyed on tap at the Von Rothenburg Bier Stube. Served chilled in a Spaten 1.0 liter stein.
A) Super cloudy yellow brew. Came out with a finger of head,which quickly dissipated to nothing.
S) The aroma is big time sugared grapefruit. Like dried out candied grapefruit. Quite sweet, but very enjoyable.
T) Follows the nose... Although the finish brings out the citric bitterness and a bit of acidity. Wow... Grapefruit and beer is a good combo.
M) Solid medium bodied brew. I expected it to be lighter. Moderately carbonated. Good amount of citrus zest on the palate. Quite refreshing...
O) Shit.... If you love grapefruit, order this and enjoy. It's quite a tasty treat, and at 2.50 ABV, you can drink a boatload.
