Pours a hazy orange-ish color with a small white head. In the aroma, sweet grapefruit. In the taste, a small sweetness and pure grapefruit juice. A small bite and a lighter to medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer sweet to tart grapefruit presence in the aftertaste. Sweet to tart grapefruit is nice, one would be refreshing, two would be too much.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: A bright orange colored brew pours from the pull tap capped bottle. Decent clarity but there is some sediment in the bottle.

SMELL: Bright citrus, grapefruit and orange, with some malt in the background.

TASTE: Enjoyable flavors of grapefruit juice, orange syrup, malt and a hint of bitters. Tangy and fruity, as the bottle suggests, this is quite a refreshing, citrus tinged beer. Wheat malt adds to flavor, and really helps to carry the citrus and broaden the profile.

FEEL: Light bodied, crisp and well carbonated beer. Drinks very easily and is downed quickly without much thought or effort.

OVERALL: This imported shandy does a pretty good job at delivering a refreshing experience. Has big citrus, wheat malt, and a light tang that makes it interesting. A nice beer to review before noon. Breakfast beer.

This is a German radler. The label says this is a krystalweizen that has grapefruit flavor added to it.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is strong grapefruit. Not the grapefruit you get in a hoppy IPA, grapefruit like you eat at breakfast. The flavor is more of the same. There is no alcohol, hops or malt present in the taste, but the label says all three things are in the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. It is very drinkable because I like grapefruit. This tastes more like a soda than a beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours the same color as it is in the bottle - dead ringer for orange kool-aid. Minimal head, no lacing.

Smells exactly like Halls DEFENSE plus Vitamin C cough drops. Or the square ones, are they the same?

Thankfully the flavor is much better, with tons of sweet orange and lemon-like shandy flavors. The antiseptic Defense cough drop flavor is there as well, but I like those so I'm okay with it. A thick malt base leaves a coating on the palate. Finish is of sweet citrus and lemon lime.

Feel is a tad chalky but keeps it from sinking into malt beverage territory.

Overall, an extremely sweet beer with a ton of quenchability and flavor, I'd have this again if I didn't care what I was drinking. A virtual liquid Halls Defense cough drop.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a bright orange color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A super-fruity aroma, mainly grapefruit. Very sweet-smelling.

T: The grapefruit taste dominated the flavor, but there was a bit of malt in the finish. Not a complex flavor, to be sure, but is very zesty and sharp.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a slightly slick finish. Light-bodied.

D: This is one of those beers that has no business being as likable as it is. Drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Orange Fanta (TM)

Aroma: Grapefruit Lemon Pledge (TM)

Flavor: Actually not as artificial as the look and smell would have you suspect. Mild lemon tartness, balanced fairly well with a the semi-sweet grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied.

Pours like carbonated grapefruit juice, with a head that is thin and fleeting. It mostly tastes like grapefruit juice. The mouthfeel is really great though. It's effervescent, prickly, acidic and thirst quenching.
