4.05/5  rDev +16.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 500mL can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium yellow-orange hue with plenty of haze and a thick finger of pillowy white foam. A very nice looking beer, if a bit on the orange side for a hefeweizen (though this should be expected).

Smell: big, rich grapefruit aroma with a little bit of malty, wheaty undertone. The grapefruit is quite strong, like a San Pellegrino pompelmo soda. This beer is definitely as-advertised.

Taste: there's a surprisingly good hefeweizen base, with a good wheaty character with a great banana quality. Over this is the refreshing grapefruit flavor, which really works for me. Nice!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, satisfyingly creamy carbonation. Boom!

Overall: I really like this beer, and I find it delightfully refreshing. I happen to really enjoy radlers, shandies and the like, and this beer is no exception; radlers almost belong in their own category.

.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.

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.

Smells good but the taste is a bit too sweet instead of tart.

3.2% abv by weight as listed on the label that may come out to 2.5% abv let me check my math. Appears a glowing orange hue in the glass, bright white head stays pretty resilient with high carbonation I'm guessing this is marketed toward bicyclists and women in Germany. Aroma has straight up sugared grapefruit peel notes, just like slicing into a grapefruit in the AM for the breakfast option sprinkled with some sugar to make it more palatable. Flavor sugar coated grapefruit soda with really pith and peel notes coming out definitely dries out as the sweetness fades with the bitterness from the rind, pith, and peel of actual grapefruits probably harmed in the making of this beer. Good thing I popped a Prilosec earlier and I've noticed that I started a regimen of proton pump inhibitors in the last few weeks. Citric notes kill in this beer it's a mimosa bottled up with grapefruit zest character throughout even the essential oils were bottled in this beer. Enough sugar was added but this is definite real grapefruit juice and others parts added, mouthfeel brings sturdy carbonation a tart citric juice finish with the zest adding to the balance. Overall well done not as wretched as I would expect from such a beer, but I'm good for one and done not much of a session ale or you'll be puking grapefruit zest out your nares just do to the actual sugar content added to this Grapefruit hefeweizen from Schofferhofer!
