Stiegl Radler (Grapefruit)Stiegl Radler (Grapefruit)
Notes: Real grapefruit juice gives this deliciously refreshing Radler (mixed beer drink) its amber natural cloudiness and pleasant tangy taste. The refreshingly fruity taste makes Stiegl-Radler Grapefruit a wonderful thirst quencher.

Decanted from a 16 oz (473 ml) can into a snifter glass; no obvious production date, but codes 09231 (black) and 3022 (punched) stamped on bottom. I though European manufacturers had to include at least a one year "best by" date.
A: Pours a cloudy, yellow-color with only a short lived head, lemon chiffon head and no significant lacing.
S: On the tart side with the aroma of white grapefruit and orange blossom. Needless to say, really fruity.
T: Semisweet and lightly tart. The palate follows the nose with a gestalt feel of Mimosa made with a fine sparkling white. No appreciable bitterness.
M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: This drinks like a refreshing citrus soda. Really delicious (hope I can get more).

if you handed this to me blind and told me it was a fruit soda i wouldn’t think twice, nice hazy golden to amber colour, head dissipates very quickly, smell is fresh and vibrant, super citrusy, grapefruit and orange, but fruit soda-y, can barely make out the bready malt, and on the tongue it’s all sweet fruit flavour, very sweet, just about cloying, no bitterness, not really sour or tart in any big way either which is a little surprising, syrupy, light bodied, high carbonation, its definitely drinkable and refreshing, but it’s not for me.

I live in hot, humid FLA and have been drinking shandys and radlers for many years. This radler looks and pours like an Orange Crush, but with a head, albeit short-lived. Grapefruit authenticity sets it apart. This one is tart, but not pucker-tart. More like a pink grapefruit vs regular. You don’t actually feel as if you’re drinking a beer. And with low alcohol, it’s hard to catch a buzz, which means SHE is okay with you drinking this while doing “chores” around the house! “I’m not drinking a beer, honey, it’s a Stiegl!” Can’t think of a better beer for hot, humid weather. I’ve been to the brewery and if you get a chance to go, you will see why this one is the bar by which other radlers and shandys are compared.

Pours a somewhat hazy light yellow. Smells of fresh grapefruit. Tastes like carbonated grapefruit juice, almost like squirt. Slightly heavy carbonation that works really well with the brew. Overall pretty good.

a great beer for a hot afternoon, i wish other beers this low alcohol and good were common, especially this time of year. this one is a little more beer tasting than the raspberry one i had last week, which was a lot more juice, this to me has some grain element to it as well, but the grapefruit is really bold and natural in it too, quenching and refreshing, not too sweet, with some bitterness and even some light citric acidity to it, which helps it finish clean and bright, i was quite impressed with this and would definitely rank it ahead of a lot of other radler and shandy types out there right now, especially those of them with grapefruit, which always taste artificial and soda-like to me, but not this one, its like a mild wheat beer with real grapefruit juice blended in, very good. it doesnt warm up great though, and actually gets kind of weighty for something that is supposed to be a pounder, i like the best when its ice cold from the tap. i like this better than all of the alternatives i have had, and think it kind of represents the gold standard in the style. the fruit is the most natural and it still tastes the most beery of any of them. awesome on a hot day, well ahead of expectations, curious about other fruit editions of this now...
