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.

Having trouble thinking of this as a beer (seems like more of a "beer cooler"), but if you think this would interest you, it likely will. Seems like a very refreshing choice for a summer party, and the low alcohol content makes it very versatile for serving occasions. Hm, on second taste, I think there should be more products like this, but with appropriate flavoring (grapefruit being quite appropriate).

A: Cloudy orange color, 1/2 inch white fluffy head, dissipates quickly, no lacing

S: Big grapefruit, maybe a little classic yeast spiciness shinning through

T: Sweet grapefruit citrus taste with a little of the classic grapefruit bitterness, a bit of the hefeweizen yeast spiciness comes in the middle of the taste, bitter grapefruit aftertaste

M: Light to medium

O: The first time I had this was at the Wine and Dine festival at Epcot and absolutely loved it. Found it in a 6 pack of bottles in a liquor store after a quick trip to Disney recently. Not quite as good out of the bottle but still probably the best fruit/beer paring I've had to date.
