This shit is blowing up stateside. Also popular is a cocktail of this stuff and gin poured over ice. This flavor combo works because the flavor of this is more or less the same as Squirt soda. You could also probably mix it w/ rum, brandy or vodka. It seems like a great mixer. As a beer, I am going to call it only OK. As mentioned, it tastes like grapefruit soda only less carbonated and slightly dryer. It is definitely a few steps above the Leinenkugel equivalent which is also gaining in popularity. The only real detectable beer character I’m getting is maybe, maybe some bitterness in the finish. Then again, grapefruit is bitter too so it might just be that. Personally, I will stick to mixing these on my own or, better yet, just drinking Stiegl Pils.

Pours hazy yellow with fizzy head. Smell is fresh squeezed grapefruit juice all the way. Taste is grapefruit juice up front with a light breadiness in the finish that gives it a faint beeriness but it mostly feels like a grapefruit spritzer. A nice strong fresh grapefruit juice flavor without being too sweet. Delicious and highly drinkable with its light to medium body and lightly prickly carbonation. Perfect for summer.

Can. Very cloudy light yellow pour with a quickly dissipating, fizzy white head. Lots of grapefruit aromas, with orange and grain as well. Flavour starts sweet with subtle carbonation and a nice grapefruit underpinning, then becomes more tart and a little grainy, finally ending on a smooth, sweet, citrusy finish. Nicely balanced and very refreshing, but nothing amazing.

The grapefruit taste is definitely there, but. Fruity beer overall. Tastes more like a sprite drink than a beer.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes gelbes Getränk mit wenig Schaum. Geruch süß/säuerlich nach Grapefruit. Geschmack eindeutig nach Grapefruit, kein Bier zu schmecken.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a finger of fizz. Lots of grapefruit soda, some biscuity malt little bit of grain undertone... grapefruit juice add nice finishing bitterness. Sweet but not sticky, heavy carbonation adds to the refreshing finish.

Bottle. Pours a yellowish color with not much of a head. Aroma is pink grapefruit and lemon soda. Taste is somewhat grapefruity, not sweet, a light streak of maltiness. Soda-like i.e. light with strong carbonation. Refreshing if you’re looking for a soda.

I picked this up in a mixed six fr0m the supermarket, ticker me. I’m n0t a big radler fan. I like beer. I like fruit drinks. Separately. This 0ne’s 0kay, p0uring a hazy straw b0dy with a fizzy head that rapidly reduces t0 n0thing. The ar0ma is grapefruit. I like grapefruit. The drink is watery, and s is the flav0r, grapefruit with a light t0uch 0f pale malty sweetness. N0t bad, but my first and last.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - nice sweaty punky tart grapefruit soda flavor.
Appearance - is yellow lemon white; the beer is very cloudy; white head last for a few seconds, and quickly disappears into nothingness.
Taste - taste is very close to other grapefruit sodas, I personally think it’s very close to A-Treat’s Grapefruit soda, which is my favorite. There is a nice funky, tart grapefruit soda quality about it. It’s had to pick-up on more. Doesn’t really seem anything at all like a beer.
Palate - body is light but for something so artificial tasting it’s approaching medium; the texture is thin; carbonation is fizzy; the finish has a nice grapefruit soda funky tartness
This is wonderful stuff, I personally could drink this all day, that said to me it’s not at all, what I conceive of as a beer, even for a fruit beer. I gave it a good rating, because I have a simple philosophy of rating a beer on what it tells me it is.
