One of my faves for refreshment. Ginger notes are dom over the grapefruit but it is what it is a nice spicy beverage that Im glad is being made all year round now.

Pours a pretty light amber color. Looks like apple juice. Very fizzy. The head is magical, itís there and poof itís gone.

Nose is very gingery. Smells like ginger ale. Thereís a little grapefruit in there, not a lot.

Tastes like ginger ale. The taste is not very citrusy. Itís very watery, very light.

Moutfheel is very light. Itís extremely drinkable. But the thing that surprised me, is the spiciness at the end. Like I said, very water, but very refreshing.

Overall, I donít like it. Yes, I know itís a fruit beer, but itís really not very good. Refreshing yes! But if it had a little more body, it would help immensely!! Nothing much more to say. Itís okay. Is it worth it? Absolutely not!! Drink a ginger ale instead.

bottle.pours clear amber with a small white fairly lasting head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of ginger and grassy hops. Light body, lightly bitter, flavor reminded me of ginger ale with a backbone of malt and a light bitter finish.

Grapefruit taste but not overpowering. Something great for a warm summer day. Very refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber body under a minimal fizzy off-white head that quickly faded. The nose is fruity and sweet with some distinct grapefruit notes and some light ginger. The flavor is a little thin overall, with some light grapefruit and just a minimal note from the ginger. Under the fruit thereís a little toasty and slightly sweet malt. Mouthfeel is a lightly clingy with minimal fizzy carbonation. Meh, not a winner.

Pours clear orange amber with a quickly dissipating medium beige head. Bright grapefruit aroma with ginger candy and caramel. Light body, good carbonation. Medium sweet, mildly tart, gentle bitter and spicy finish. Easy drinking, like grapefruit and ginger candy.

Great beer if you like beers with hints of citrus. The grapefruit gives it an interesting, but good taste.

Medium amber colored, fizzy pour with ruby red grapefruit aromas that you can almost smell from across the room. More like a soda than a beer and likewise, the alcohol is not evident. Delicious, refreshing, crisp & flavorful. A+ for the style all the way.

Golden pour with a white disappearing head. Aroma is grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit on a light malt base. The grapefruit flavor disappeared. Ginger in the aftertaste.
