Smells like grapefruit juice. Tasks like bubbly grapefruit. Looks like a ruby red body with a ring of white carbonation. Very frithy with an acrid sweetness... like grapefruit.

Onslow (1246) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Hard to rate this as a beer or an ale, since the fermented grain aspect of the beverage is barely perceptible. It is a very pleasant grapefruit soda enhanced with a malty sweetness.

Bottle. A: Cloudy orange grapefruit with a thin white head. N : Grapefruit, hefeweizen yeast, clove, banana, biscuit, not too complex. T: Sweet and grapefruit sourness. M: Light, soda - like carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Alcopop. Tasty but I prefer 10 Barrel Swill.

superspak (3227) - Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2015
330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 12/2015. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of ruby red grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, apple, light banana/clove, wheat, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero presence as expected of 2.5%. Overall this is a nice radler style. All around good robustness and balance of grapefruit juice, pale malt, and light-moderate fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Satyroneto (202) - BRAZIL - MAY 1, 2015
Cor amarelada é um pouco turva com espuma branca de baixa formação e persistência de uma fina camada sem lacing. Aroma cítrico e ácido do suco de toranja. Sabor com início doce de toranja evoluindo para cítrico e acidez da toranja; retrogosto doce de toranja; corpo leve e média carbonatação. É um suco de toranja com alta carbonatação.

Hammy78 (841) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
From a can. Pours a cloudy orange colour, rather hazy, fluffy white head dies down quite a bit, but rather active in the body. Nose is overwhelmingly grapefruit. Tastes really sweet, grapefruit., thin, sugar. No bitterness.

JK (4862) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2015
From a can. Less expensive than Stigel, and lower alcohol. This has a lot of citrus and grapefruit soda flavor. Sweet and refreshing; I could put this over ice. Good summer beer, and one of the better radlers I have had anywhere.

Travlr (15104) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft sample. Cloudy straw color, small off white coca cola head. Aroma of grapefruit. Taste is very sweet, artificially so, sticky mouthfeel. Not my favorite.
