Hazy peach/apricot look to it with a bright white head, fine speckled lacing left behind unevenly...wow. Not a bad looking beer, the brew smells great, tart grapefruit pith it's like slicing a huge grapefruit for breakfast and sprinkle some sugar on it. Very bright citrus pith and flesh, I'm liking the nose...one dimensional but totally worth smelling a grapefruit explosion. Flavor hits just like biting into a piece of fresh grapefruit with a hint of extra sugar, the it's like Ocean Spray Ruby Red grapefruit juice with carbonation and a touch of alcohol...at first I was thinking it was going to taste like a Fresca cut with beer nothing like most horribly sweet shandy offerings. Dry bitterness down to the bone from the grapefruit acidity and citrus qualities, I'm really enjoying this, never though I'd say that! The best Harpoon UFO offering ever, really nice beer. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, lingering bitter Grapefruit pith pretty damn tart for grapefruit flavor blended with beer...carbonation sturdy but carries the flavors so well. Overall, I'm shocked at how ridiculously good this is.

Looks like a lager mixed with grapefruit juice: Cloudy, yellow.

Unmistakable grapefruit juice and rind. Might be more refreshing if I hadn't had fresh grapefruit juice for breakfast.
Juicy, with way more grapefruit juice flavor than expected. In fact, this is the dominant flavor. Wheat beer is much more apparent in the bready aroma.

First time with this particular brew, and first ever review.
Bottle to mason jar.

Appearance: Quarter inch head; fine carbonation that dissipates after a few minutes. Being unfiltered, it's quite opaque and cloudy. It's an orange/yellow/brown color resembling grapefruit juice.

Smell: Sweet, citrus aroma with the very slightest hint of grains.

Taste: Quite sweet, a little sour, with extremely mild bitterness. Citrus flavor matches the aroma nicely.

Mouthfeel: Light at first with a heavier, acidic follow-up. Mellow carbonation with a slight fizz while holding in the mouth.

Overall: A light, mellow beer with a strong citrus body. This is the first non-lemon shandy I have tried, and I enjoy it quite a bit more than my previous shandy experiences. It’s wonderful for a warm summer evening, however the sweetness combined with the sour, acidic aftertaste wouldn’t make it a good choice for an Independence Day bender.

Note: I am recovering from a head cold and my sense of smell is a bit off, but the citrus smells and flavors are still quite pronounced. Take this for what you will.
