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.

From Carrefour. In Teku glass. At lunch. With fried eggs, fried potatoes and nuggets. Hard to finish. Artificial and a little metallic taste.

Very surprised by just how good this is. Grapefruit is a surprisingly solid choice for a fruit beer. A nice, albeit mild, level of citrus, and flavor that almost kind of comes across as tangerine. It doesn't come with the tartness that is generally associated with grapefruit.

This is a Shandy and is very good for its style. But should be rated for a shandy not a beer.
