From 12 oz can into pint glass.
Pours a 1" pillowy white head that drops slowly with a web of lacing. Color is cloudy yellow-orange with plenty of streaming carbonation and lots of sediment in suspension. Aroma is more lemonade than beer but the malt is there in the background. Light and frothy mouthfeel, similar to a carbonated soda. Flavor is sweet lemon dominate with some breadiness in the background. Overall this is pleasant, easy drinking beverage for a warm sunny day. Taste much like a Fresca with a slight alcohol kick. If I was going to drink a radler (a very rare option), this would be a good choice.

Clear light gold color with white cap and lacing.

Aroma of sharp grapefruit backed by sweet/tart citrus.

Adult grapefruit cream soda. Definitely sweet yet tart enough to be refreshing. Simple flavors of grapefruit with a touch of lemon that finishes clean. No hops, no alcohol, nothing else really but what it has is sufficient for purpose.

Full texture with balancing carbonation.

Good effort here, simple, unpretentious yet certainly above average. I generally don't bother with Radlers because they usually don't offer anything I can't get with a Kolsch and Rads don't have hops, or at least enough to notice. Yet I can certainly see the appeal for well made examples such as this one.

We really enjoyed drinking this beer all summer. Nice frothy white head, and nice grapefruit flavor. Very thirst quenching.

Slightly hazy verlight golden color. Has a nice two fingers of a foamy white head.

Smells like bitter grapefruit. Almost like a pink grapefruit? Slightly sugary scent something like a soda.

Taste is some citrus leke lemon or orange mixed in with the grapefruit. A bit malty and sweet on the taste.

Mouth leans to the mid range of light and is somewhat wet but yet refreshing on the finish. Not quite as soda like on the mouth as the Speigl Radler.

Now this is goodness all around. Served ice cold on a hot day this would be almost like anadult grapefruit soda, yet with a bit more of a body to it. And for $10.99 a 12 pack I could see icing down a 12 in a cooler and hauling this to the parks, cans making it that much more convenient. For all that I give this Canadian offering a bit of a boost.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy medium golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big ruby red grapefruit, lemon, lime, white grape, wheat, cracker, bread, and light herbal. Very nice aromas with good balance of citrus/fruit juice and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big ruby red grapefruit, lemon, lime, white grape, wheat, cracker, bread, and light herbal. Light herbal bitterness and fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon, lime, white grape, wheat, cracker, bread, and light herbal on the finish for a good bit. Great robustness and balance of citrus/fruit juice and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly drying from bitter/tartness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy, and lightly acidic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a great radler! All around great robustness and balance of citrus/fruit juice and bready malt flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. Really flavorful for the low abv. Still has nice beer flavors alongside the fruit juices, without feeling like soda. One of the better radlers I’ve had, very enjoyable.

Hazy yellow with an inch of foam from my can.

The smell is of grapefruit and lemon. The juice is strong.

Tastes like it smells except I do get some grapes that I didn't get in the smell.

Nice mouthfeel and very easy to drink. Colour me impressed with this low brow but tasty beverage.

Exactly what we were looking for my wife who doesn't like beer. But with a twist. The grapefruit was a surprise. This is what you call a gateway beer.
