A lot like stiegl radler in that the taste and feel is so artificial, with the grapefruit sweetness and resin having a sticky and cloying sweetness. It also doesn't taste as good, with the grapefruit being countered by a strange orange popsicle taste. Way too carbonated as well.

Had this on 2018-07-25 in Columbia, PA from a 330ml canned on 2017-08-04

A - Pinkish-orange with a 1-finger orange-white head that drops quickly leaving little lace.

S - Sugared pink grapefruit flesh and light wheat bread

T - Too sweet; like drinking lemonade. Flavor is more orange than grapefruit. The malt tastes like sugared wheat bread. There's a bit of herbal spice. No bitterness.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation.

O - Might as well have had an orange soda and a much cheaper price. Definitely not for me.

I think I get it; but I can't bring myself to like it.
Maybe if this were a fruit beer (which it absolutely seems like to me), I could rate it better.
But a hefe- is a very delicate beer and I have to use my imagination to know that a hefe- yeast is in this Mix.
I don't get the fluffy head of a hefe-, nor the soft, fruity banana-like aromas. I can Taste wheat if I ignore the bubbles. But I am reminded more of Tang than beer. The artificial flavor sticks to my tongue. However, this is refreshing; and for that I give it some OA points.

11.2 Fl. OZ. bottle
Served in a weizen glass

This beer pours hazy. The color falls somewhere between orange and peach. It is topped with an inch of beige head that disappears quickly.

It has a sweet grapefruit aroma. It reminds me of Squirt.

It tastes like Squirt mixed gernerously with a beer. The base beer is almost indistinguishable against the sweet, grapefruit pop onslaught.

Moderately bodied with a lot of effervescence.

It is refreshing as hell after working outside for ten hours. It is quite chuggable.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy orange; fluffy white head that fades leaving okay retention and little to no lacing. The aromas are citrus forward. Lots of grapefruit and orange. Some wheat and malts. It smells sweet and tastes sweeter. The flavors are really sweet. Lots of orange and grapefruit. Some yeast flavors, but the citrus dominates. Lots of sugar. Alcohol obviously goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is light with moderate to active carbonation. It's very fluffy and smooth.

I'm personally not too crazy about this one. It's literally feels like drinking orange pop or grapefruit pop. It doesn't feel like a beer at all. It doesn't taste bad though and would work with some pizza or something.

overall, very nice...a drink I will keep on my list for those hot summer nights

Looks like grapefruit juice. Tastes like a grapefruit juice shandy (not that I've had one before...but this is exactly what I would expect one to taste like). It is a bit too sweet but has decent grapefruit flavor. Overall, not the most interesting beer in the world but not bad.

Bought at Liquor Shed.

Pours a hazy orange, an inch of foam initially, subsides to a ring around the glass, a wee bit of lacing.

Smells of grapefruit juice, wheat, somewhat perfumey.

Taste is grapefruit juice, more sweet than bitter, I get some oranges as well.

Very light body, low carbonation.

I couldn't pick up any Hefe character at all. I didn't expect much and that is what I got.

Pours a hazy ruby red color. Thin ruby tinged fizzy white head dissipates steadily leaving no residual head.

Aroma is mostly dominated by grapefruit juice notes. You do get some wheat and Hefe notes, with a tinge of banana, but overall it largely takes a backseat to the grapefruit.

Taste is more balanced than the aroma would imply, but still skews towards the grapefruit. Up front you get a nice lively grapefruit flavor - followed with a wheat flavor in the back end with some light clove and banana notes. Overall its certainly sweet, but not in therapy you might expect - its just sweet in the way that there is fruit so it tends to capture that sweetness. As the beer warms you get more of the clove and banana notes from the Hefe.

Feel is light spritzy and vibrant carbonated. Very refreshing.

Overall you have to understand that this is not really a hefeweizen - its a radler that uses a Hefe as the beer base. As radlers go this is well done and avoids becoming too sweet.

Had this beer at Epcot while strolling through “Germany”. I called it a murky orange brew with just about no head from tap. Very sweet grapefruit nose with a grapefruit soda flavor to it. Very well carbonated. Like a sweet soda but with a bit of alcohol. Not really very beerish.
