look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

11.2oz bottle
A - thin off-white head dissipates quickly atop a grapefruit juice colored bier
S - fresh grapefruit juice, yeast, wheat malt
T - grapefruit juice, wheat, hefe yeast, faint clove and banana
M - creamy light body, effervescent carbonation, very modest bitterness
O - unfortunately the grapefruit juice overpowers most of the hefeweizen flavors with this one. I had this one other time and was unimpressed. Ditto again here.

Picked up a single bottle for shits and giggles.

The pour is straight up Orange soda. The head even dissipates quickly, leaving some sparkling carbonation. I'm sure Kel Mitchell would love this.

The aroma is....grapefruit cider? It's just a sparkling grapefruit drink. Oddly enough it's not that bad.

The flavor is literally orange soda with some grapefruit squeezed in. No bready notes, no bananas or cloves. Just orange drank with a grapefruit spritzer. No. Just no.

The feel is watery with a lot of carbonation. Are we sure this isn't a soda and not a beer?

Overall, I guess I got what I expected. It's grapefruit flavored orange soda. I don't get it.

If you like flavoured beer this is for you. Nice overall looking and tasting beer (because I do like grapefruit) but I think I'd stick to non-flavoured in the future.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1 | overall: 2.25

Look- Hazy dark orange. Loads of carbonation, large bubbles, nearly 3 finger white head in a standard Hefeweizen glass. Head dissipates quickly.

Smell- Grapefruit smell, not too complex. Smells like orange soda.

Taste- Sweet and fizzy in the front of the tongue, like a combination of club soda and orange soda, bland and almost no after taste. However, it is very refreshing.

Feel- Light and crisp mouth feel. Loads of carbonation on the tongue.

Overall- Not too much smell or flavor but it is refreshing on a hot summer day. Since it contains a low ABV you could drink one after another no problem.

This beer pours a nice orange color. The head was white, frothy, 2 finger, and dissipated quickly.
The nose is nice with citrus. Grapefruit, of course.
The taste is fairly light, not surprising given the abv. Nice grapefruit flavor. Not overwhelming. I don't get any hefe flavor.
Very light feeling, not surprising given the abv.
Overall, not a bad session beer on a hot, sunny, summer day.

Yeah, I saw this in the store today and was curious. I didn't even check the abv. Rookie blunder. This looks like orange cream soda and smells like ruby red grapefruit. The taste is fruity and sweet and loaded with carbonation. Not my deal at all, and not really a hefeweizen, in my opinion.

The body of this beer looks exactly like ruby red grapefruit juice. There is a 3 finger, creamy white head with the slightest tinge of pink. Retention is minimal and there is no lacing.

Smell is straight up grapefruit juice with the slightest twang of wheat.

Taste is similar, but no wheat to be found. carbonated grapefruit juice.

Feel is light and watery.

Overall this is a no go. The super low abv made me skeptical going into this beer, and my intuition was correct. I should have left this on the shelf and grabbed something else to finish out my mix 6. Calling this a beer is a bit of a stretch.

Pours like orange juice. Smell is heavy grapefruit. Taste has a grapefruit lemonade feeling to it. Mouthfeel is like a sprite. Overall perfect for summer.

This beer is half Hefeweizen and half grapefruit drink.
Interesting color- cloudy grapefruit with a 4 F head.
Excellent aroma: grapefruit, almost like fruit juice.

Very malty and smooth MF.

Taste: like a grapefruit soda, almost like a creamsicle.

Is this a beer??? Or a hybrid drink with alcohol?

Excellent, but not in any category.

A European attempt to brew American?
It doesn't work. Too much grapefruit drink to qualify as beer.

Bottle. Delicious, authentic radler from Germany. Low ABV, sweet; looking forward to making a beer-cocktail with it.

Look: Hazy orange body, one finger white head. Looks amazing.

Smell: Pure fruit juice, maybe a hint of grains. Not much of a "beer" presence, but still really good.

Taste: Same as above.

Feel: Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Mildly sweet.

Other: Not really beer in the sense, but is still amazingly tasty.
