3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
appearance: yellowish pink, fizzy and vanishing white head. aroma: tart grapefruit with a hint of pilsner. taste: tart and dry, but slightly sweet grapefruit (feels like soda vs juice), with just a hint of peppery, grassy hops and a slight crackery pils/lager note. finish: lingering grapefruit soda sweetness, prickly carb. notes: Yup, super refreshing and delicious. Drank it almost too fast to truly appreciate it. Literally a perfect beer on a hot summer day. Bottle from the Beer & Wine Cellar in Rockville, Maryland.

On draft at the new burger place on Boulevard, sampled thanks to Tia sharing hers. Poured light pink. Aroma of grapefruit. Flavor is slightly tart grapefruit - like a grapefruit soda. Can’t say it was particularly beery. Or at all beery. But it was nicely refreshing.

Can, 2.5% ABV
Cloudy pink-orange with no head. It’s very fruity, quite refreshing, moderately sweet, with a tangy touch. Drinkable.

Been enjoying radlers lately. Definitely light and crushable. Sweet and bitter grapefruit. Simple easy clean.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can, given to me by Tim. Hazy, pale yellow, with a big, off-white head. Sharp grapefruit aroma, with some banana, yogurt, and cloves. Very sweet and a little sour, with a bit of bitterness. Light to medium body, creamy, and very acidic. This is a pretty nice radler, but overly acidic and bitter, and the hefeweizen character is lacking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is big citrus, notably grapefruit. Flavor is big lemon, with a bit of grapefruit in the finish. Pretty effervescent and very sweet. Almost like a citrus soda. Nice for midday drinking.

It tastes like alcoholic grapefruit juice. Tasty but can only do one glass. Carbonation is quite strong.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at 16-Bit, poured into a pint glass. Forgot to look at the size, but I’m guessing 500 ml. I don’t know for sure. I also hadn’t looked this up for a few years because I thought I already rated it. I first saw it hit the Cincy market when our pregnant friend used it as her go-to at restaurants. Her kid is at least 2 by this point. Pours a hazy fruit juice color with a bubbly head that fizzes out immediately. Notes of ruby red grapefruit, sugars, mild spice, wheat, and lemon-lime soda. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, fruity, citrusy mouthfeel. Good. In fact, I liked it as much as its Schofferhofer counterpart, which I enjoyed quite a bit. That one had a better nose, but this one has a better flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2015 Aroma is grapefruit, sour, rind, pretty much just grapefruit. Appearance is pale yellow, thin, white head. Taste is grapefruit, lemonade, oddly thin and finishes with a wheat finish. Could’ve done without the end there. Mouthfeel is crisp but then drops off too quickly. Overall, got the radler out of the way.
