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.

One of the better shandys. I wish the aroma had been stronger with hints of grapefruit. It looks like grapefruit juice and I expected to find pulp clinging to the glass. Medium weight but full palate. It’s basically carbonated and alcoholic grapefruit juice, which was good. Tart and slightly bitter.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a glass. Translucent orange with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, medium body, low carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is rich grapefruit. Not bad for a grapefruit shandy. Think Sangria, but with grapefruit and beer rather than wine and fruit juice.

Not as sweet as you might think. Grapefruit nose. No hop flavor. Much better than I expected.

Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is grapefruit and cotton candy. More tart than sweet, which I appreciate. You can tell its unfiltered on the palate. Not bad.

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.

Mr_Hops (116) - Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2014
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.
