12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 5/4/2018. Pours lightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/lightly tart ruby red grapefruit, lemon, orange, melon, citrus peel/zest, wheat, cracker, white bread, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of grapefruit juice, pale/wheat malt, and light earthy hop/yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/lightly tart ruby red grapefruit, lemon, orange, melon, citrus peel/zest, wheat, cracker, white bread, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/citrus peel bitterness, and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of juicy ruby red grapefruit, lemon, orange, melon, citrus peel/zest, wheat, cracker, white bread, light herbal/grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale/wheat malt, and light earthy hop/yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from tartness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic/tangy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an outstanding radler! All around awesome robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale/wheat malt, and light earthy hop/yeast flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and never watery for the ABV. Perfectly balanced grapefruit juice vibrancy and wheat beer flavors. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. This is one of the best radlers I've ever had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 5/4/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- cloudy orangish gold with a plethora of bubble streams that sustains a thin white head; lacing is very shy.
Smell - straight fresh grapefruit with just a touch of earthy tones!
Taste - I’m a sucker for grapefruit centric beers and this is another example of a fruit themed beer that I tend to go out of my way to avoid that I ended up really enjoying!
Feel - light, bitter, easy drinking and not at all too sweet!
Overall- total pool and bbq beer that I could likely drink all day!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Great Divide cervoise glass.

Look: Light burnt orange body under a pristine white head that recedes to a film and white collar. Little dots of lacing remain.

Aroma: Light grains and very fresh, tangy grapefruit flesh and grapefruit rind zest.

Taste: Light wheat flavor with grapefruit zest and sweet grapefruit flesh, other citrus notes such as orange.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied.

Overall: Very nice grapefruit all around, sweeter to drink than expected, very refreshing.

DATE: October 8, 2017... OCCASION: the (last?) humid Sunday night needs something light and refreshing... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker... pours a turbulent, misty pale yellow body that swirls like river water... the head is thick, white, and significant, with large pockets of bubbles arcing up and over the glass... quite a looker for a radler... sour grapefruit, punchy and tart, arrests the sense... some flowery aroma and candied sugars too, but not much to distract from the central goal here... first sip is reminiscent of orange juice (no pulp), acidic and light-hearted... more texture to the body than expected.... grapefruit, as advertised, and a reasonably tart, tangy finish that remains long after the sip finishes... as this style goes, almost memorable... I find nothing against this beer--refreshing as it promises, and with enough flavor to take one with interest...

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.
