From 06/02/16 notes. At Fitzgeralds in Glen Ridge.

Overall while it doesn't taste too much like a beer or hefe, I found it very tasty...it is NOT like a Grapefruit IPA or anything, and more like a shandy, but was nice on a summer night.

Overall, wow, this has a really crisp and refreshing taste, um, taste of grapefruit rather than beer. I'd perhaps use this as a mixer, since …well ... it's a bit sissy on its own. But the good news is that this is fantastically better the "Grapefruit Harvest IPA" (by Abita Brewing).

This is in the same category as a hard root beer. It is half grapefruit "drink" and half heffe. They recommend denying right from the can and I did. It smells and tastes just as you'd expect, but about as opposite of a grapefruit Sculpin as you can get.

It doesn't look like a beer at all, smells just like what it is half hefeweizen and half grapefruit juice. You can only taste the hefeweizen a little bit but it comes thru just enough and blends well with the grapefruit, it goes down smooth and doesn't have too much carbonation like other sweet beers.

Delicious radler that isn't overly saturated with sugar. Better than grapefruit juice. A 3.53 may be a little unfair considering this is mainly fruit juice but it really is delicious.

Poured a very hazy yellow with a slight hint of pink. Aroma is sweet grapefruit and Belgian yeast. Flavor is grapefruit flesh, fruity hefeweizen style flavors, Belgian yeast. Incredibly refreshing; basically closer to a delicious grapefruit radler.

The very best part of this is definitely the aroma which is a fragrant blend of hefeweizen and grapefruit. In the flavor, it’s by far grapefruit, just barely beer. Body is a bit watery and a tad low carbonation. Easy to chug, but I don’t want any more

Excellent for a grapefruit drink. But I wanted a beer.

I'd buy it again but I'm not happy with this recent surge of ABV% Root Beers and whatever, and this "drink" is far more grapefruit drink than Weizen or any kind of legitimate beer. I'm surprised that these new styles even make it onto beeradvocate.com, the Bros banned ciders and the likes of Strongbow years ago.

A = looks like a carbonated soda with some foamy head.

S = smells like a carbonated grapefruit soda.

T = tastes like a carbonated grapefruit soda.

F = has a slight alum bite along with some minor bitters.

O = great for what it is.
