First tried this beer at the minnesota state fair. Instantly became on of my favorite beers i have tried... been looking all over for this beer but found out it is only available on tap.

Pours light in color, some lace

Taste delicous, you get a mouth full of the grapefruit flavoring along with other characteristics that balance it out nicely.

Smells Sweet

Overall this beer is at the top of my list and i hope thye release in bottle/cans soon

On tap at Veigel's Kaiserhoff in New Ulm.
Had a flat appearance with little head and looking mostly like an Am. lager. Golden body and mostly clear.
Grapefruit aroma with only a hint of the base lager.
A nice grapefruit flavor that wasn't too tart or too sweet, but more on the sweet than tart. Again the lager base was foundation and background. No real hop quality to discern.
Light body, but certainly with more of a lager quality than water. Smooth and on flatter side of carbonation.
I was surprised with how much I liked this. A nice easy drinking beverage that's soft on the beer qualities, but not without them. It went nice with the meal and was nice for a hot day. Good for lawn mowing and enjoying outdoors in hot weather when looking for the thirst quenching aspects of drinking.

Don't know too much about this other than it is a massive grapefruit beer. I heard rumors that they are trying to get the abv up and put it in bottles.

Pint at old Chicago

Little white head with little retention. Color is a clear light pale yellow. Very clear!

This beer is hardcore grapefruit. It is hard to tell if this is a beer or some kind of wine cooler or mikes. It honesty tastes like ruby red squirt.

Mouthfeel: crisp and clean. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, this beer was really ligt and easy to drink, especially after a long run. I don't know how much of it I would normally want, but on a hot day a bottle or two would be refreshing.
