I.... Don't know what I expected, with this one. Grapefruit is possibly my favorite flavor, so, I figured I had to give it a try. It is, however, just grapefruit juice from concentrate, mixed with rather cheap beer. One could get the /exact/ same flavor by buying one of those giant $1.00 jugs of grapefruit juice, and mixing it with some PBR in a cup, for a small fraction of the cost of this. I mean, it definitely wasn't bad, and it's exactly what's advertised, but... I guess I don't really get it.

From the can that expires 19-07-2017. Sampled on January 13, 2017.

The pour is a juicy looking pale yellow with a quick lasting white head.

There is a lot of grapefruit juice on the nose which overpowers the toasted malts or bread that might otherwise be there.

Light, carbonated, and refreshing body.

The taste highlights the grapefruit as it should but I think I would prefer the grapefruit to be a result of the hops used rather than the added juice flavor. Sweet with a hint of white bread and a tart finish. I am not fond of Shandies in general.

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.
