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.

Pours a very cloudy orangish yellow color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention and and lacing are both very good. Big grapefruit aroma. Not much else. Big grapefruit taste. You get a little bit of wheat at the end. Doesn't taste like a beer, but it is very refreshing and good.

500mL can, packaged on 04/04/2016, expires 04/07/2017. Served in a milkshake pilsner glass.

Appearance: Cloudy grapefruit color with an initial thick white head, then died down to a thin ring. No lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit soda. Nothing else.

Taste: Initial grapefruit soda flavor, and then it transitions into a bit of a hefeweizen. Some mild graininess and wheat tang from a hefewiezen, but not a lot. Very mild quick bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: A bit fizzy as you would expect with something mixed with soda. Okay thickness underneath, but more like a soda.

Overall / Drinkability: This is a radler so I'm not sure why this is being listed as a Hefewizen. I think it should be listed under fruit/vegetable beers for style. That being said, it works as a radler. The underlying beer is just okay, but it pairs well with the soda as an accent. The soda is the main player here, with the beer as an accompaniment which works. So the individual pieces of this beer are just okay, but everything combined works much better. Very good on a hot day and works well with spicy food. I may not have another one in an evening, but it's easily drinkable and I finished it quickly enough.
