COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we first started thinking of a UFO summer seasonal, we knew we had our work cut out for us. We loaded up the vans for the beach and spent days “researching” every combination of fresh fruit juice and beer we could think of until we discovered a combination that made our decision easy.

Made with grapefruit juice.

I typically like radler, but not this one. Strange spice to it, mouth feel of a juice rather than beer, not carbonated enough, and looks like grapefruit juice. Disappointing. At least it doesn’t smell horrible.

Cloudy dirty orange. Smells like grapefruit juice. Malty spice with a bready aroma and taste. Juicy acidic grapefruit and honey floral. Too sweet but very much like grapefruit juice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- an overly sweet mix of citrus and wheat, the smell was overpoweringly sweet, Appearance- A near neon orange color with almost no hint of a head. Taste- incredibly sweet and not very beer flavored for me, not good at all. Palate- A thick medium bodied beer that fizzed like a soft drink. Overall- luckily I bought this as a single at a Pizza Parlor and only had to endure 12 ozs of misery.

bellco33 (370) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - SEP 3, 2014
On tap at the Vermont brewery: Pours light orange / pink with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit and sugar. Taste is a complete diabetes bomb. So much sugar. Sugar grapefruit juice and a hint of wheat beer somewhere. Light body, not good.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Sweet grapefruit juice, with some weird asrtingency, mild acidity, and a sweet finish. Meh.

Pours hazy orange with a finger of white head. Aroma is mostly sweet grapefruit juice. Taste adds some bitterness but overall still on the sweet side.

Beerman6686 (4596) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
This poured a hazy light orange color with a white head. Aroma was pretty much all grapefruit juice. Flavor was similar with grainy character as well. Not really a great beer but not a bad drink and refreshing.

Funky smell like old citrus beer...taste is better...def grapefruit but doesn’t really go well together...aftertaste is acidic with other favors which make it taste like vomit...def not a fan...actually it’s downright disagreeable
