It is a peach colour with a white head, bearing a citrussy scent with a hint of alcohol in the nose. The flavour it tart on the front end with sweetness on the back. Pleasant overall if you like grapefruit.

I bought a six pack in bottles and the bottles were 11.2oz. The bottle read an expiration date of 01/2017 with a bottle number of L287/15C. I poured it into a 12oz pint shaped glass. There was plenty of resin on the bottom of the bottle.

Appearance: golden, cloudy, with lively bubbles that if you look closely, you will notice. It had little to no head.

Smell: perfume, citrus, and of course, grapefruit like.

Taste: smooth, obvious grapefruit taste, with little carbonation.

Mouth Feel: light carbonation, crisp, seltzer-like.

Overall: I need to admit my bias, I enjoy grapefruit juice anyway so this beer (if you can even call it that at 2.5% ABV) was refreshing on a hot day. Very light with little carbonation. It was as if you poured seltzer water into grapefruit juice. If it weren't for the alcohol, kids would enjoy this. Obviously stay away if you hate grapefruits.

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).
