This beer is half Hefeweizen and half grapefruit drink.
Interesting color- cloudy grapefruit with a 4 F head.
Excellent aroma: grapefruit, almost like fruit juice.

Very malty and smooth MF.

Taste: like a grapefruit soda, almost like a creamsicle.

Is this a beer??? Or a hybrid drink with alcohol?

Excellent, but not in any category.

A European attempt to brew American?
It doesn't work. Too much grapefruit drink to qualify as beer.

Bottle. Delicious, authentic radler from Germany. Low ABV, sweet; looking forward to making a beer-cocktail with it.

Look: Hazy orange body, one finger white head. Looks amazing.

Smell: Pure fruit juice, maybe a hint of grains. Not much of a "beer" presence, but still really good.

Taste: Same as above.

Feel: Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Mildly sweet.

Other: Not really beer in the sense, but is still amazingly tasty.

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.

From the can that expires 19-07-2017. Sampled on January 13, 2017.

The pour is a juicy looking pale yellow with a quick lasting white head.

There is a lot of grapefruit juice on the nose which overpowers the toasted malts or bread that might otherwise be there.

Light, carbonated, and refreshing body.

The taste highlights the grapefruit as it should but I think I would prefer the grapefruit to be a result of the hops used rather than the added juice flavor. Sweet with a hint of white bread and a tart finish. I am not fond of Shandies in general.
