I admit it - I just had to know. I was under no delusions that this would be a quality product. I was right. I smells like a grapefruit soda (does anybody remember Wink Soda? I think it was sold during the 70’s). Very highly carbonated. Obviously there are grapefruit flavors, but also syrupy sweet flavors. Honestly, I could see myself drinking this if they could turn down the sweetness.

500ml can pours a couldy straw yellow with quickly vanishing white head and no lacing. Aroma is that of a pineapple-grapefruit soda - Fresca, or Wink. Taste is the same - much more like a soda than a beer. Body is light and fizzy. Still, I found this very refreshing, easy to drink and satisfying on a hot day in late June.

34 C bike ride done, swim done, ice cold Stiegli Radler Grapefruit perfect
Not my choice for an everyday day beer , but hot day after a ride and a couple of dives in the pool.
Lots of grapefruit, beer is there but in the background for sure,very clean taste.
Keep some in the fridge for a post ride refresher.

While not something I would drink everyday, this is quite refreshing on this hot June day. It has a nice balance of sweet and tart with strong flavors of grapefruit, sulfur, and pale yellow fizz beer. Not bad.

This is nice! Pours cloudy straw with no head or lacing. Nose is pineapple juice. Aromas are grapefruit, maybe some pineapple, maybe a hint of fresca. Tastes medium I high sweet and light bitter. Light body with some cola like carbonation. Great poolside quencher.

16 oz. can. Pours hazy yellow like pineapple juice with a large soapy foamy white head that fades. Aroma is Fresca and bitter grapefruit. Taste is sweet citrus grapefruit soda. Palate is thin and coating with a fizzy dry finish. Great on a hot day at noon!

Draft at uber. Fresca with some toasted malts as well. So damned refreshing and delicious, perfect on a beautiful sunny Sunday like today. I would happily make this concoction my regular summer beer-drink if I knew where to find it.

Great beer to sit on the porch with after doing yardwork. Fantastic mix with the grapefruit sofa. This might not be for everyone but definitely worth a try over the lemon shandys out there. The cyclists in germany knew what they were doing when they came up with this one

500 mL can. More yellow than the orange or pink I expected. Not really much to say, except that I liked the Schöfferhofer version better, perhaps because the hefe serves as a better base. Still refreshing, though, but then I really like grapefruit.
