Very pink grapefruit color. Smell also very grapefruit like with skin, peel, seeds and all. Taste is very sweet and sugary. The flavor is all grapefruit. It’s refreshing but a little too sweet. If it were more tart I think we would be on to something.

Bottle, thanks northernbrews. Pinkish-orange pour with a small head that quickly fades to nothing. Aroma is just all fresh squeezed grapefruit. Tastes kinda artificial and very sugary sweet. This tastes like a bud light grapefruit-a-rita. I won’t be drinking this again.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Well, it’s completely ridiculous, as you might assume. Plenty of grapefruit aroma and flavor, but way too sweet. I’ve had a few of these grapefruit beers now and always seem to be overly sweet. Despite all this, I still kinda like it.

Can. Not crazy about grapefruit but when rating for the style it is not really that bad. Aroma is grapefruit juice and the taste is grapefruit juice.

16 oz draft pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of wheat and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, yeast and malts.

heemer77 (5133) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. An orange tinted brew with a hint of pink. A long lasting bright white head. A nose of rich grapefruit with bits of hay and light bread. This tastes like fruity grapefruit finished with hints of bubblegum. I also got flavors of sweetened dough. Overall, this is a lightly tart pleasure to drink. Interesting.

Piw (178) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
330ml Flasche. Trüb und orangefarben. Mittelmäßig sauer und süß. Weizenbier noch heraus schmeckbar. Insgesamt ein gelungenes Biermischgetränk.

wlajwl (4190) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Aroma is grapefruit/citrus and lemon/lemonade. The flavor is grapefruit, lemon/lemonade, malts, mild/medium sweetness and a sourish/tart finish.

tectactoe (2640) - Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Bottle: Opaque light amber, tinted golden body. White head fades to a collar quickly. Aroma is straight grapefruit & citrus. Smells like Fresca. Flavor of grapefruit juice, orange juice, light citrus, & some mild grain. This isn’t a great beer but it’s drinkable as hell. Grapefruit to the muthafuggin dome.

Can from my aunt Pam. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is straight grapefruit juice. Taste is grapefruit, a little beer, and some more grapefruit. Not bad, surprisingly.
