My second favorite Shiner beer, next to the FM 1966 Farmhouse Ale. However, with the added ginger and grapefruit, it’s really refreshing hot summer day dark beer. Love it!

I really enjoyed this brew. That being said, I also really like fruit/wheat beers as well. Very nice complex character of grapefruit and ginger with this one.Not overly sweet either. So good on a hot summer day. This was my go to beer for summer 2011. Also, very reasonably priced at around 5 to 6 dollars for a sixer where I’m from. Great brew, I’ll definitely buy it again next summer.

Great taste, and wonderful aroma of grapefruit. I was suprised when tasting this for the first time. A mist on warm summer nights.

A really well crafted spiced brew. This is a well balanced spiced beer. very enjoyable with a small white head and excellent spicy aroma. A great beer for a hot summer day

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.

Tasty citrus brew sold seasonally. Not too hard to find compared to most other Shiner brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a great beer if you want a summer taste. I will be buying some and bringing it home to Chicago, as I bought this in Houston!

I really loved the grapefruit and ginger flavor in this beer. It is a special beer that gets better the more you drink it.
