The sweet grapefruit flavors over power everything, making it hard to tell if you are drinking beer, or fruit juice. For me, it is too sweet, and not that interesting due to the fact that all you can taste is that one flavor.

Pours a hazy orange color (orange juice) topped with a medium frothy white head. Fruity aroma of grapefruit. Taste is sweet and fruity. Easily drinkable and refreshing, juicy - not really a beer quality but why not.

Can. Pours a luminescent orange/gold with a high, soft, fine-grained white head. Nose is -- shockingly -- grapefruit...also orange and a touch of hefe. Quite sweet on the tongue; the acidity and carbonation is muted, though there’s a rather large punch of grapefruit pith/peel bitterness on the back of the tongue. Rather Kool-aid like if Kool-aid made a grapefruit flavor. Would go well with some gin in it. Would go better with some lemon in it. Not enough acid.

Moravius (836) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) aus einem Edeka in Berlin. - Stumpfes helles Rotbraun, gut trüb. - Riecht fruchtig-süß nach herber roter Grapefruit und Fruchtgummi. - Antrunk weizenbierähnlich hefig-weich mit milder, frisch und zunächst fast natürlich wirkender roter Grapefruit. Im weiteren Verlauf schmeckt es eher limonadig, d.h. künstlich und nach Süßstoff. Mild rezent, weich. Im Abgang ganz milde Herbe. Etwas schaler Nachtrunk. - Für ein Biermischgetränk gar nicht so übel - man schmeckt, daß es einen (sehr kleinen) Anteil echten Grapefruitsaft enthält. Trinkbar, solang es gut gekühlt ist.

Poured from a large can. Hazy, looks like beer mixed with grapefruit juice would look. The grapefruit is strong, tastes like a carbonated greyhound with a little less sweetness and a little bit of wheat beer. It's still a little too sweet and is best served very cold ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml can poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a bright hazy copper color with a fluffy white head of foam. Pretty good retention The aroma has pink grapefruit notes to it and that’s about it. It actually smells just like a grapefruit as you are about to bit into the meat of it. The beer tastes mostly like less bitter pink grapefruit juice. Very light in body and drinks like something with no alcohol or carbonation. Odd considering it has both. Very refreshing beer, and something I could easily drink in quantity.
