Very fruity, but not too sweet. Very refreshing on hot days. Delicious. For men and women.

Bottle. This beer is pleasing to look at, a pleasing mix of hefeweizen cloudiness and grapefruit colour. The grapefruit taste complements the hefeweizen well. I would say the abv is not high but that’s okay, I don’t need to get loaded every time I drink a beer. One of my favourites.

OK, there is no doubt that this beer is artificial in a lot of respects, but the brewer’s goal was to make this taste like a pink grapefruit beer. Guess what . . . it tastes like pink grapefruit with sugar. If you like ruby red grapefruit juice, then you will like this beer.

Strong yeast, very smooth, nice citrus aftertaste. Reminds me of a mellow Chardonnay. Would recommend.

Great tasting beer, aroma is great, true hefeweizen with a hint of grapefruit. Great beer when you want a soft taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wife liked it. Does have a fresh grapefruit smell. From a clear bottle looks like grapefruit juice, heheh. Very good flavor, friendly easy and very little sign of nasty ale at all. Just like drinkin carbonated grapefruit juice, very little bitterness. Easy drinkin fun and yes, a good beer experience. I was leery when I first saw this but now I’m glad I picked it up. If you like lindemans, you’ll probably like this fru fru fruity drink. Makes me want to try to mix grapefruit juice and my favey lager. Pleasantly surprised. I’d like to get a case of this stuff.

Excellent balance in this mix, it is a sweet beer with medium head retention and medium carbonation, one of the best fruit beers I have ever taste, any chance tha I have, I buy some.

bread, citrus, grass, pale orange, hazy, white foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, lively carbonation Pours a nice pale orange, and with shaken bottle for last of the yeast, created a foamy 2 inches of head to fill weizen glass. Head does not have staying power, and diminished to nothing before drink half finished. Heavy citrus fruit aromas with the slightest malt/yeast coming to surface. Tastes like it smells - slightly sour/bitter and sweet grapefruit. Nice carbonation on the tongue, and no lingering finish. At 2.5% could drink a number of these in the heat of the afternnoon and get refreshed. Why can’t this idea take off in N. America instead of soda?

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Sampled from a clear bottle at Germany in Epcot this beer poured a murky orange-apricot color with a medium sized soapy white head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was strong pink grapefruit juice. The flavor was sweet pine grapefruit juice and grapefruit soda. Long finish of sweet grapefruit juice. Medium body. Quite tasty and wonderfully refreshing.
