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.

Tall can. The 50/50 mix is evident with the juice and beer tastes both coming through and working well together. A refreshing beverage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2014
On tap at Disney World (Wine and Food Festival). Poured a orangish color with almost no head. Sweet, grapfruity soda, and sugary.

pras (474) - Maryland, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Draft at Epcot food and wine expo. Poured into a plastic cup. Light in color, tons of graefruit in the nose and in the taste, enjoyable and refreshing. Not a great beer, but enjoyable for what it is. Drink cold, you will enjoy.

John25 (642) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft. Hazy pink and orange just like grapefruit juice. Aroma is spiced yeast and tart fruit juice. The taste and feel are exactly a high carb grapefruit juice. Very refreshing and light. Good stuff in yours in the mood for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spab (2526) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
500 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a murky dull orange with hints of pink and fizzy white head. Aroma is juicy red grapefruit and hints of cereals. Flavour is sweet, juicy red grapefruit with some cereal grains that moderate the sweetness. Light bodied. Refreshing but more reminiscent of grapefruit juice than beer.

500 ml can. (Penny Markt) Mainz, Germany.
Enjoyed from a can in a park by the Rhine river... Very grapefruity... a bit too sweet. Quite smooth though. The sun is shining and life is smiling... one Grapefruit-Hefeweizen can’t take me down.

Blairgus (2688) - California, USA - SEP 30, 2014
30 sept 2014, bottle. Light orange and hazy. Nose is lovely pink grapefruit juice. Full body (like grapefruit juice) and mildly fizzy. Tastes of pink grapefruit juice and not much else. I guess the hefe makes it not as sweet or grapefruity.

digopossobon (295) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
Pouco creme, bem claro. Liquido alaranjado e turvo. Interessante. Aroma cítrico (óbvio) e doce. Média intensidade. Agradável e refrescante. Ácida, amarga e doce. Grapefruit bem marcada. Não pareceu uma cerveja de fanta como o pessoal falou. Lembra bem mais uma grapefruit que uma laranja. Tem boa carbonatação. Parece um drink com gás. Razoável. Minha esposa adorou!

NJBeerman013 (1052) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle. Ruby orange in color. Small rapidly fading pure white head. Aroma is sweet citrus. Tastes like grapefruit without much beer characteristic. More like drinking a malt hard lemonade...
