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.

Purchased at the LCBO for around the $2.20 mark or so for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that films out within a minute or two. Nice medium orange colour and unfiltered.

S- Nice grapefruit here. Citrus galore

T- Grapefruit and citrus. Nice and sweet but tart. Nice lightness going down

M- Sweet and sticky. Tough to get through on a hot summer day

O- Nice brew but I see it being difficult to get down on a hot summer's day. The sweetness would get on you fast.

Food Pairing

This nice little hybrid went well with..... Fruit cocktail!

Enjoy

Draft pour in a pint glass at Chuck's in Darien, Illinois (only).
Hazy, but bright, orange body with no head.

Grapefruit is obvious on the nose as well as the taste. Nice, but is it beer? I say no. Some bread in the flavor as well.
Mouthfeel is clean and light, but creamy, and the finish is dry and sweet.
I want this refresher between the front lawn and the back lawn on a hot summer day.

Interesting and a nice surprise. Different at first taste, but very good and one you will want again. Make sure to swirl the bottom as you pour, or you will be missing out. Give it a try, you will enjoy it.
