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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very sweet fruit soda aroma. Milky white body with minimal head. Sweet flavour with hints of wheat. Not balanced and too sugary all around.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can. (2.5% ABV) Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with an average, fizzy, short lived, white head. Aroma of sweet grapefruit. Sweet flavour of grapefruit and a hint of lemon with a lightly bitter, dry finish. Light body with a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. Thirst quenching on a hot day but more like a soda than a beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz can pours opaque cloudy pale yellow with tiny head that fizzes out. Nose is tart acidic grapefruit juice and lemon. Taste is light bodied, pretty much straight sour grapefruit juice with some lemony cracker. Finishes sweet, sour grapefruit, lemon, lime, light cracker. As advertised.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin.
Cloudy hazy light straw grapefruit yellow colour; Three-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Poor sticky lacing and fairly fizzy carbonation; Strong aroma of grapefruit soda, with grapefruit juice, orange soda and fructose; Medium sweet taste of moderate malt, with grapefruit soda, strong grapefruit juice, strong carbo, light sugar and hint of grass; Close to light body. Juicy thick palate;
Mouth feel is thickish grapefruit juice and soda blanket the otherwise notable fair beer maltyness. The fruit is real, very fresh and pulpy, feels like liquid grapefruit gracing the otherwise much malaised style. Nice!...
Hoppiness is near zero in nose. Light herbs and really thin grass in taste. Bitterness is hidden to for an abrupt, thinly astringent fruity-sweet finish;
Wet after taste. Very fruity and very easy to mouth.
Comments: The grapefruit content is pound-for-pound, so the resulting radler has more juicy grapefruit than the usual damp lemon beermix. Malt is not obvious in aroma but expressive in taste. This is real, bright and fruity, and really enjoyable. Love it!
