Pours a hazy yellow/gold colour. Smells like fresh grapefruit zest. Tastes sweet, juicy, squishy, fresh grapefruit zest, white grapefruit, pink grapefruit, and a slight malt underbody, with a clean/dry finish

Just starting to drink and learn to appreciate this style. I can understand why this particular Radler is popular. One could consume several on a warm day after a bike ride.

Extremely hazy dull yellow body with fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The nose is nearly pure grapefruit juice; a touch of wheat grounds this thought. The flavor better showcases the beer aspect by providing light malt akin to bread and a bit of yeastiness. It also has no tartness and even has mild sweetness. The soda 'Squirt' comes to mind, as offensive as that may be to the brewers. The body is light, a bit sugary, lightly carbonated.
A classic for a reason. While this is an abomination to purists, it is also a shining example of incorporating (hijacking) fruit into beer, to the point where it is difficult to tell whether it is alcoholic fruit juice or very fruity beer. Worth a try no matter what camp one finds oneself in.

Pours a light hazy yellow with a scant pop of white head sitting on top. The head is quick to leave the scene.

The smell is a refreshing pop of grapefruit that does not overwhelm as it has kind of a whet bread undertone to soften it.

The taste is so darn good! Kind of like a Squirt soda with a bit more body to it. The grapefruit is prominent but like the smell does not overwhelm.

Mouth is light and fizzy. Seems to almost pop in the mouth with all of the carbonation.

There is a lot of good going on here. For a great summer Radler this one is a real nice offering. With such a low ABV a person could drink several of these and not worry about becoming a blubbering train wreck. The only bite is the price, I paid 10.99 before tax for a 4 pack of 16.9 oz. cans. i guess I could get over the price for the quality of this refreshing beverage.
