Keg blend of Lager and grapefruit juice

sulawang (698) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Visual: Aluminum can. Pours cloudy juice-like luminescent pinkish-peach, very fast dissipating small head, zero retention, a couple of small bubbles surfacing. Nose: grapefruit juice, faint lager malts. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: juice consistency, incoming juice + sour Mid-palate: very sour, medium tart, (MAIN) pink grapefruit juice, malt Finish: soft bitter peel, grapefruit acidic harshness, grapefruit juice finish. Summary: Very low carbonation, grapefruit dominates, barley takes a back seat. Since the juice was from concentrate, there’s not much complexity in the juice either. Too simple.

[6004-20131023] Tap. Toasted orange leather and fragrant floral lychee aroma. Murky, orange body with no lasting head. Pungent orange bitter juice flavour has a ton of mango and lychee mixed in. Medium body is fairly bitter. Delicious but it’s more like an orange champagne than a beer. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5

Ferris (7009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Can - Fresh breakfast grapefruit juice. Cloudy orange with no head. Sweet light grapefruit juice, wish there was a bit more beer flavour, just lots of juice. Steigle has nothing to worry about.

ICCK!!! I hate this radler trend thats been happening. Not a bad brew actually, just not a fan of the style. Pours a bright orange and yellow with a pink touch. The nose is full of grapefrui and toasty wheat malt. Nice bitter finish.

Poured from the tap. Murky pinkish orange with almost no white head. Essentially grapefruit juice with alcohol. Very mild yeast characteristics. Tried hard to rate it in relation to the other fruit beers, but it just does not taste like a beer. It tastes like alcoholic juice.

brokensail (12479) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On tap @ Parallel 49. Milky peach colored pour. Not much of a looker. Citrusy, mildly tart aroma. A mix of grapefruit juice and grapefruit soda. Pretty zesty, though a touch sweet. Flavor has a nice acidity to it and lots of citrus. Slight soda/sugary quality. Good grapefruit character. Hints of grass and bread underneath. Similarly crushable as the Beermosa. I might like this a bit better.

Can, thanks Matt! Murky orange grapefruit soda color. Big bitter grapefruit juice bite. Heavy on the grapefruit here, but also 3.5% abv = hi boost Radler. A little heavier than preferred, but still awesome on a 90+ degree weather.

Clairement une bière aux pamplemousse. Pas mauvaise du tout, plutôt rafraîchissante. Ne mérite pas sa mauvaise cote : quand on sait que c’est une radler, elle est très fidèle au style.

355ml can. A murky pink-yellow pour, holds zero head.. Nose has pink grapefruit and a little sweetness. Slightly tart grapefruity flavour, light sugar. Bit of hops near the end, mild grapefruit tartness. Light bodied. One of the better radlers I’ve had, tastes like real fruit juice and the added beer has a nice light hoppiness. Quaffable, light and pretty nice. Pleasantly surprised by this.
