Damn this beer delivered. Straw-gold hazy beer with a normal, thin head. Smells so good. Tropical grapefruit funk medley. Pungent aroma.

What else could it taste like with a smell like that? Extremely satisfying, deeply sweet grapefruit with a cacophony of tropical flavors to wash it down. Sweet hint of malt at the end but these fruits are the dominating force in this ale.

Really deserves a higher rating. End feel leaves some carbonation and a burp of funked tropics. This is a high performing, diggity dank brew. Quite easily one of the best lower alcohol beers I've tried. What a keeper. I've tried 5 beers today and this one makes me forget all of the others.

12oz can. 6/13/17 can date. Appearance: Cloudy light golden with a thick white foam head and decent lacing. Aroma: Grainy wheat, with a dominant grapefruit pulp. Taste: Starts with a really sweet wheat maltiness with grapefruit pulp that becomes more tart and bitter thru the swallow. Low hop bitterness, but the grapefruit peel like bitterness comes thru. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a touch of creaminess, and a moderate carbonation. Finish: Lingering bitter grapefruit peel, dry, and a touch of tartness. Overall: Skews more in the wheaty, malt forward side of the radler style. Grapefruit hangs out in the background before showing it’s bitter and tart character in the back end. Decent radler, but the rich sweetness makes this a slow drinker

12 oz can. Pours hazy dark yellow with a big bubbly white head that retains well and leaves little lacing. The aroma is sweet grapefruit juice with some wheat malt. The flavor is sweet wheat malt with lots of sugary grapefruit juice. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

12 oz. Can
Canned On: May 04 2017

Pours a pretty nice cloudy pale yellow color, really nice carbonation, with a HUGE three-finger thick/creamy white head, which leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is kinda malty, kinda hoppy, kinda yeasty, with a big dose of grapefruit. The taste is malty, yeasty, hoppy, with some grapefruit. Medium body. Overall, a nice little thirst quencher.

Lots and lots of grapefruit here. Very redundant to say this is to sweet being a radler, but a little more malt backbone could make this beer stand out.

It's a little sweet for my taste, but people that like radlers will love this. Big juicy aroma and it isn't actually that sweet, it doesn't taste like soda. And there's a mild barley background. Yeah, I'd definitely drink one on a sweaty day.

This beer pours a a slightly cloudy yellow with a large head. The aroma has lots of fresh and zesty grapefruit, with just a hint of sweet and sour. The flavor leads with a mild bready malt, and then a dry and tangy sour grapefruit juice flavor, with a hint of pithy quality. The mouthfeel is quite light with good foamy carbonation. Overall I love the nose on this, but the flavor is not as refreshing as promised. Still, quite enjoyable.
