look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
A- Pours a pale and cloudy yellowish-orange color with a small foamy white head that retains shortly, eventually disappearing
S- smells of grapefruit juice mixed with a light lager, a hint of lemon and wheat rounds it out
T- the taste follows the aroma, tart grapefruit juice mixes with wheat and lemon peel, flavor quickly fades, leaving a bit of toasted malt on the finish
M- light body with moderate carbonation, foamy and spritzy mouthfeel, crisp, dry and tart finish
O- a nice refresher, but it may actually be a little too tart for me to have more than a couple. It's would however serve well on a hot summer day, as it's intended
Serving type: can

A - poured an opaque orange haze with a one finger loose quick to dissipate head. Looked dead after a few minutes, might as well be grapefruit juice.
S - tons of citrus fruit, almost smells like fruit juice instead of beer. Grapefruit dominant, some spicyness and a slight bread. Sells tired vs refreshing, of that makes sense.
T - not really my bag, I've had some shandys from the Macros and they still delivered a good crisp refreshing flavor, this is lacking. The grapefruit is domineering, and the bitterness is astringent. There doesn't seem to be discernible hop flavor which would have made a world of difference.
M - would expect it to be lighter, mouthfeel is chunky, syrupy.
O - This is just not enjoyable to me... Not refreshing doesn't really look good, thought the taste would be brighter and hoppier, but its really on the dull side. Will choke this down and the other two will become fridge turds. Meh.
