Shocked Radler pours a bright straw color with a small non lacing head. There is a mellow grapefruit aroma. The taste is sweet, and fruity, lots of grapefruit, as it warms up the grapefruit gets overpowering. Very light flavors, yet the grapefruit still gets overpowering. refreshing, decent carbonation. Overall its a funky beer, light fruity, very refreshing, however its nearly undrinkable.

16 oz can into a pint glass

Ap- pours a slightly hazy, very light yellow color with 1/2 inch head that doesn't stick around long

Ar- grapefruit definitely and maybe some other citrus notes, but really all I'm getting is grapefruit

T- very, very sweet, almost tastes like a wine cooler more than a beer, the grapefruit really only comes through at the end

M- sticky, very light bodied with decent carbonation

O- hmmm, not sure about this one. It would be super, super good on a really hot day on the lake, but I'm not really sure if I would want this any other time. Just too sweet and too much like a wine cooler for me. That being said it is very refreshing!

16-oz can into craft pint glass

A - 4-finger white head, transparent (slightly cloudy) body of straw yellow, moderate amount of carbonation

S - sweet pink grapefruit

T - sickly-sweet pink grapefruit, strongly resembles a soft drink

M - thick medium body, high carbonation

O - The cloying sweetness is a major drawback. I'd prefer a citrus soda to this.

Pint can into a Gandhi-Bot tulip; thanks to mnbearsfan for this extra.

A: Clear pale straw body under a half-inch of frothy white head that settles quickly into a ring and leaves light, spotty lace. Average.

S: Quite sweet, with grapefruit essence minus the bitterness. Simple, to the point, and quite enjoyable.

T: Follows the nose - clean, sweet grapefruit dominates, along with some even sweeter citrus notes and some peach. The finish has a bit of citrus rind and bitterness, which is a pleasant counterpoint to the sweetness. Refreshing and enjoyable.

M: Light and frothy, verging into creamy as it progresses. Really nice.

O: Definitely not my favorite style, but this was quite good. The grapefruit is flavorful and well-balanced. Tasty stuff.

Had this on tap at a good local burger joint and was a little disappointed. Was a light gold with terrific lacing. Smelled very sweet and citrusy. Taste was too sweet with no bite whatsoever.

Overall I wasn't impressed. Expected something more like Deschutes Chainbreaker and this doesn't touch that.
