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.

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

The aroma is very malty with hops and citrus fruit. The appearance is cloudy tan with a fizzy head. The taste is sour and bitter with grapefruit and chemicals. The palate is flat. Overall it has some grapefruit but just doesn’t seem to work for me and gets worse as it warms.

From the can, great refreshing and crisp beer. Clean finish, sweet but still fairly bitter. Juicy fresh grapefruit, bitter sweet flavors. Quite drinkable, but perhaps a little too sweet for more than one.

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

Draft sample looks like a bad UTI, cloudy orange. Nose light citrus and crisp. Taste more like orange soda. Lots of sweet citrus. Some malt mid palate. More artificial fruit in the finish.

Can. Started out okay but by end of can, treated like rancid grapefruit juice. Citrus aroma. Wheat texture initially. Overall just not good

Pours really nice with a cloudy orange haze with a slightly frothy white head. Smell is of bread and slight citrus. Upfront is a bang of tartness then the common wheat beer taste finished by the feel you get from grapefruit juice.

Mittenator (1276) - Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy, grapefruit juice color. Sweet malt and odd fruit aromas. Sour grapefruit with some sweet fermented flavor.

degbert (1099) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours an opaque orange-peach-amber with a low, white, fine-grained head. Nose is nondescript -- a little wheat beer, a little grapefruit, but not much of anything. Tart on the front of the tongue, with a little sweetness; very round and well-fleshed out, with pithy bitterness coming in on the mid-palate. Finishes tart and clean, mouthwatering. Tastes better than it smells. A nice shandy.
