2.71/5  rDev -23%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Aroma: Very aggressive on the nose. Candied red grapefruit gives off a dominating tangy scent upfront, and subtle hefeweizen spice traits, and almost sickening sweetness in the background.

Appearance: Pale orange and hazy. One finger of pinkish-white head with minimum retention and soda style carbonation.

Taste: Unrelenting grapefruit sweetness, bread like tones, and subtle yeast spice. Small amounts of banana and clove but I am missing the wheat taste.

Palate: Light bodied and refreshing, but closer to a soda than a beer. Residual tongue stimulation from the grapefruit assault with a dry finish.

Overall: Pretty refreshing. A good session-able beer to enjoy by the pool during the summer months.

.33L clear bottle with a BB date of 9/2015.
Unusual appearance, but does look like a hefeweizen with grapefruit juice.
The smell is largely citrus rind and grapefruit juice, but there's a nice mix of hefeweizen with grapefruit juice in the flavor.
Refreshing; exceptionally fruity; lightly sweet.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

15.2 oz can poured into a raised glass.

Opaque iced tea brown meets an orange hue. Head starts out tall at 3 fingers but then recedes to a thin foamy line.

Tart grapefruit on the nose, mostly like grapefruit Halls. Light wheat aroma behind that, but mostly grapefruit concentrate.

Refreshing is the word here, with tons of light grapefruit juice and grapefruit soda flavors, and a creamy finish of wheat and clove. It is not complex or interesting in the slightest, but offers a little more than most light beers do in terms of flavor and feel.

Feel is creamy, and very nicely carbonated. Not really a finish.

Overall, this beer is very easy to drink and something I'll return to. Definitely not complex but easy to drink.

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.

Bottle poured into a wheat beer glass.

Look: A hazy light orange color with a finger of white head.

Smell: Aroma of wheat, yeast, grapefruit and orange.

Taste: Strong flavors of grapefruit and orange with wheat and yeast sitting in the back.

Feel: Medium body with a crisp medium to high carbonation, a little watery much like a soda.

Overall: A nice refreshing drink for the warmer months with little beer flavor though. Wouldn't be my go to but would have again if offered. Perhaps something for people who don't truly like the "beer flavors". It really resembles more of a soda than a beer. Not what I was hoping for, but different.

I.... Don't know what I expected, with this one. Grapefruit is possibly my favorite flavor, so, I figured I had to give it a try. It is, however, just grapefruit juice from concentrate, mixed with rather cheap beer. One could get the /exact/ same flavor by buying one of those giant $1.00 jugs of grapefruit juice, and mixing it with some PBR in a cup, for a small fraction of the cost of this. I mean, it definitely wasn't bad, and it's exactly what's advertised, but... I guess I don't really get it.

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.

Yes the alcohol content is disappointing but overall the look, smell and taste are really suprisingly good. Very refreshing tasty summer beer, will buy again (and might see how it mixes with a half a shot of vodka)

Refreshing drink however a little to sweet for me. Drinks more like a soda than beer. Grapefruit is slightly medicinal.
