A good beer for the summer and for those whom dont like the flavor of beer. It tastes more like a wine cooler than a beer to me. But perhaps that is indeed the aim of this brew. Its mostly grapefruit with a hint of beer in flavor vs the opposite. Easy to drink many in a row and quickly as it doesnt taste as it has high quantities of alcohol. Mainly because it doesnt have much alc/volume and the grapefruit flavor is very strong.

A medium-strong pour from a 12-oz. can yields a finger of white-orange soapy, almost creamy foam with average retention that shrinks to an island and then a thin ring. Apricot-straw color with orange-straw highlights. And that's the good news.

The bad news is the smell is orange soda and Tang with both aspirin and Aspartame.

Sharp and sour taste of artificial fruit, sour candy plus some grapefruit flavor that is almost fresh. Neutral sweetness with low bitterness (not identifiable as hops), the sour is a little strong. Sour tastes diminish a little at the semi-dry finish, all above tastes linger too long.

Medium-light body, flattens halfway through the drink. Flavors conflict and are confusing, there is however a faint wheat malt taste that is welcomed. Alcohol is well hidden.

There are some positive attributes to this beer yet the unmistakable fake sour fruit taste is hard to get by. (PKG 6/6/19)

Draught. Better than expected. Good effort at a Radler.

can to pint glass.

AROMA: Orange creamsicle (citrus and vanilla) aroma.
TASTE: very sweet, a little too much so. Orange and vanilla, touch of milk sugars. Sherbet. Ugh, nice at first but drains you after a few ounces.
Feel is very thick and sticky. The stickiness also drains on you as you get through 12oz. like a melting ice cream popsicle getting all over your hands.

Not something I would buy again. even for the summer. Probably needs to be poured over ice.
