500ml can, best before june 2019

Looks like a mix of pink grpefruit and orange juice. Little carnoation creates a fluffy head that dissipates quickly.

Smells like atificail grapefruit. Like a bad fizzy grapefruity drink.

Tastes follows the nose. Slight bitterness at the back.

Feels like a fizzy drink, not a beer.

This is not a beer.

Refreshing, but alcohol content tastes very low. Almost too low for my palate.

12oz bottle poured into Duvel tulip. BEST BEFORE: P:14.06.2018, E:14.09.2018. Not sure why it has two different dates, but I assume the earlier date is the better date to before. Presumably the P is best by and E is don't bother with after this. In either case, that means this is about a couple weeks passed due.

Appearance - Big, loose offwhite orangey head with medium-low retention. Doesn't just flatten out but rather thins out from within. Very bizarre, never seen this before in a beer head. Head is probably faintly orange because of the reflected light bouncing through the opaque orange body. 4

Smell - Soft grapefruit. I mean, lives up to expectation. 4

Taste - Soft grapefruit. I could be drinking some kind barley alcoholic mixed drink. I mean, I guess I am. 3

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied overall. A bit sharp up front because of the grapefruit's acidity. But fairly mellow the rest of the way through. 3

Overall - Not bad, but compared to Leinenkugels' grapefruit shandy, this is not even worth the time if you're American. Get better, local, for cheaper. 3

Great blend of grapefruit and a hefeweissen! I was skeptical about it at first, as I am with most 'fruit beers', but this was a great surprise!

It's a wonder this one hasn't gotten the NYFRB Alco-pop multi-day thread treatment. Maybe because it's never had the hype and has been too easy to get. Anyway, this pinkish bier concoction was enjoyed on a hot, hot day, which seems optimal. Lots of sweet grapefruit, carbonation, and no indication there's any booze to it. The bottle is drained just as soon as it's opened. Rating is based on pure enjoyment.

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.

This has become one of my favorites, perfect for hot, summertime drinking.

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.
