Bottle pour. Pours a very hazy, bright yellow with little to no white head. Aroma had a lot of lemony, grapefruit juice going on. Taste is big grapefruit juice and just a hint at some yeast notes in the finish. Very refreshing.

Can from the LCBO. Pours a hazy yellow-orange colour with a fast-fading white head. The aroma is pretty much solid grapefruit - it also has the authentic sharpness of grapefruit (in contrast to sodas like Fresca that purport to be grapefruit). I swore Iíd never enjoy a Radler, but dammit, I kind of like this. Itís a whole lot more grapefruit than it is beer - but itís tasty enough.

Taster glass. I think we may want to separate true Radlers from fruit beers, as a finished beer with juice or soda added before packaging is a different animal than one fermented with fruit. For one, this is intended to be low-alcohol, and for two, itís not fair to be comparing this to a DFH Fort. That said, this is pretty tasty. Does not hide the fact that itís light in alcohol, though probably the grapefruit adds some sugar calories. In fact, it does have a bit of an added sugar taste that might have been meant to keep the grapefruit from souring up the works. Not a world-beater, but recommended if I were ever actually "on the go."

Half liter can from Beer Run. Pours a murky yellow color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma is pure grapefruit. The taste is nearly pure grapefruit but with a barely detectable bit of malt and a crispness I assume is from the beer. Thin bodied. This doesnít come across as candy or artificial, so as a soda its quite nice.

I generally donít take to these fruit mixer cooler type drinks but this one really was naturally flavourful and truly refreshing. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small cap that does not last, very effervescence, peppery mouth feel, light and dry with a decent natural citrus and malt aroma. Flavour is a balanced mix of fruit juice and beer tastes with vry low hop presence- clean crisp dry finish with a touch of fructose sweetness at the end.

Tasty fruit-beery hybrid. Not a lot of beer taste. Mainly fruit juice. Nicely tart and a pleasant finish. Good choice for breakfast.

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 70ís). 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.
