“Limited release” cans. Second eight pack I’ve bought and I’m going back for more! Best by date is over 3 months away. When fridge cold this is an amazingly thirst quenching easy drinker for hot summer days.

Pours an interesting pale color - a lot like a light cider. Fluffy white head - not super tight but appreciable. Smells like grapefruit peels! Ew! But it has a wonderful and crisp flavor. Hmm. This tastes and feels like a Genesee Cream Ale. Well, just a touch dryer, perhaps, and with fruity undertones (and over nose :) )

Well, it’s a smooth and crisp easy drinking low alcohol beer. Perfect for summer!

Woah this is pretty good! Great bready background flavor just the right amount of grapefruit and a crisp finish! If your expecting more than this from a simple blonde ale you might be clinically insane but for a light beer this is actually very good and easy to crush!

12 oz can poured into a pint glass with a slightly hazy straw color, quickly disappearing head and minimal lacing. Smells of citrus, mild grapefruit. Taste is very light with some grapefruit and low bitterness. Light body with decent carbonation and dry finish. Overall, a decent light beer for hot days.

12 ounce can poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

L---Hazy, bright golden color. Big, fluffy white head that had ok retention and nice lacing.

S---Sweet. Bright citrus (grapefruit). None of the bitterness of grapefruit.

T---Follows the nose very closely.

F---Fairly light feel. Ample carbonation. Juicy & wet.

O---Decent, wouldn't seek it out, but I'd pound a few on a summer's day.

Pours a light gold. Slight grapefruit aroma. Tart and crisp with a light grape fruit flavor. Very refreshing. I would definitely drink this 8 days a week.

Pours a light gold color with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is grapefruit. Tastes like a light beer with grapefruit juice added. Slightly bitter finish. Crisp and dry. Would be a good beer to drink after cutting the grass.

Canned 5/18/20.

Translucent gold, with moderate, quickly-dissipating white head.

Smell is fresh red grapefruit, with a little fresh white bread aroma.

Taste is light, slightly sweet grapefruit, the mild coriander spiciness of the base beer, and a touch of bread crust . Light bitterness, that lingers a bit.

Feel is light, with medium carbonation.

Overall, while it's OK in its own right, I don't think it compares favorably with the base beer. Disappointing in that regard. YMMV, so worth a try if you like grapefruit.
