The color is straight grape fruit juice. With such a low ABV this beer can sneak up on you if you like this blend. With a 50/50 blend of grape fruit juice and hefeweizen, this is a hit or a miss for most customers I saw who tried this blend. Some hated it and others came in to get a growler every couple of weeks around the holidays. There is a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Light body, effervescent carbonation, but for me the grapefruit juice overpowers the hefeweizen.

.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.

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.

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.

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.

Can poured into plastic cup; yes! I know, but I'm at DW in Orlando. Pink grapefruit color with little to no carbonation; modest head. Smell- grapefruit (go figure). Taste- grapefruit. Low ABV- nice for a HOT day.

L: It looks like a hazy, slightly orange glass of Texas Ruby Red grapefruit blanketed by 2" of frothy white foam.

S: Hefeweizen aromas are buried behind the grapefruit.

T: grapefruit with traces of wheat and hefeweizen flavors in the background.

F: beer texture, medium bodied and medium high carbonation.

O: refreshing, somewhat beer like
