This is a very oddly colored "beer". Orange, almost peach, and cloudy. Decent head but no lace.

A bit gimmicky. The smell is like Fresca -- lots of grapefruit.

Think Fresca but much sweeter. There are not any wheat note. This could be a soda. So, it's very drinkable but not very beer-like..

Can poured into plastic cup; yes! I know, but I'm at DW in Orlando. Pink grapefruit color with little to no carbonation; modest head. Smell- grapefruit (go figure). Taste- grapefruit. Low ABV- nice for a HOT day.

Pours a cloudy, peach color. 1/4 inch head of off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong grapefruit, pale malt, hint of hops, and sugar. Barely fits the style of a Hefeweizen, it is much more reminiscent of a Fruit / Vegetable beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong grapefruit, sugar, hint of hops, and a hint of pale malt. Overall, mostly grapefruit; a poor hefeweizen, but a refreshing fruit / vegetable beer.

This product is 50% "Hefe" and 50% "Grapefruit Drink " as listed on the US labeling. The cloudy is not yeast but cheap canned "juice". Very poor. I would not call this a "bier" at all. It certainly is not crafted. It is more of a commercial marketing product to the same crowd that likes sweet drinks. I seriously doubt it is popular in Germany--this is marketed to Americans. I thought the grapefruit would be a nice substitute for traditional lemon wedge in the Hefe but this is just not a beer at all. It should be sold with wine coolers or the like.

This is a weird beer. Pours beautiful orange-yellow, smells awesome, taste great and the mouth feel is refreshing. But is this really beer? I can't say but I like it.
