Für ein Fruit ist es gar nicht mal so schlecht. Erfrischend in der Säure, leicht bitter und von der Optik her natürlich künstlich, aber in Ordnung. Zu meckern bleibt nicht viel, außer der vollen Chemie, die hier drin stecken mag.

Pours out of the bottle in a light hazy light red colour with no head and thin body. Aroma of light strawberries and dust. Taste of sweet oranges, strawberries and pear. Okay for a fruit beer but just nothing very nice or tasty.

It has a very nice pink color and the adding op some grapefruit is rather original and makes way for a very nice taste. Both the Grolsch-brand and Grapefruit are bitter but the both compliment each other, perhaps because the watery 2.5 redeems them. Very good summer-beer with a nice fruit-taste.

like the lemon one, artificial and chemical. Take 1 liter of generic pilsener, 2 liters of water and half a liter of grapefruitjuice.. enjoy. Color is disgusting.

Oh man, I hate grapefruit! So I probably should have known that this wouldn't be my beer. Although the sun was shining and I was looking out to some refreshing beer, this didn't do it for me. But probably because ... I hate grapefruit.

What can you expect from a beer with 2,5 % alcahol, not much.... To compensate the little taste Pink Grapefruit is added... Not tasty, but if you can't really drink it is a nice alternative. It is a beerry lemonade.. And very watery

bierkoning (10206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2003
Pink golden color. Grapefruit aroma, a bit artificial. Watery thin but fresh, with a strong grapefruit flavor. I can’t understand some low ratings, I’ve had much worse beers, though the aftertaste is a bit annoying.

I have no words for it, it’s disgusting

it was better than expected. quite refreshing and a pleasant shade of pink. there are plenty of worse beers out there - like grolsch het kanon, for example

only bought this cause it used to be the very worst beer in the world as voted by ratebeerers, before florisgaarden chocolat turned up on the scene - and whadayaknow i actually liked it after a good cycle round zeeland in the rain. exactly as skortila says - amstel light with grapefruit. who needs cascade hops?
