Illusive Traveler Grapefruit Ale has a thin, frothy, white head, a murky, milky, yellow-straw appearance, and little lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of citrus juice and white wheat bread. The flavor is the same, with citrus tartness and acidity. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Illusive Traveler Grapefruit Ale finishes tart and sweet. RJT

I'm kinda over these shandys only because they're showing up everywhere. I did like this, but like all of these, they're a little too filling and way too low in ABV. This tastes exactly like the original curious traveler shandy but finishes with a nice grapefruit taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Grapefruit aroma. Lightly sweet grapefruit taste. Lightly bitter long finish. Overall ok tasting beverage. Different. Not necessarily a well crafted beer. probably a good summer tailgate beer for those who like citrus.

Draft. Citrus aroma--primarily orange with grapefruit notes. Cloudy gold color with white head and minimal lacing. Sweet, orange citrus flavor upfront with grapefruit asserting itself in the finish. Not bad for a shandy; very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jandd1983 (3001) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2015
It poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of lemon, orange and grapefruit. The taste was of grapefruit and lemon. A little fizzy but a decent Shandy.

PorterPounder (5972) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Hazy, light orange pour, quickly fading bubbly off-white head. Flavor has some solid grapefruit juice notes, a hint of lemony sourness, just a touch of vanilla sweetness. Mouthfeel has a decent smoothness to it. Refreshing.
