Drank from a can, thanks Ehren! New to Missouri, my first time trying it. A blend of light lager with carbonated grapefruit juice. Raddler is apparently German for cyclist, referring to its use as a sports drink over there. Nice, light, spritzy, grapefruity. A tasty summer refreshment, but I don’t think I’d want this residual sweetness while exercising. In any case, I could drink a lot of it on a hot day. A fun little oddball to try.

Can. This reminded a lot of that fancy San Pelagrino carbonated water. With all the different kinds of lemon, peach, and grapefruit. I like those waters. and this beer was pretty good too, but it tastes of grapefruit and soda water. Maybe it is the low ABV that you taste nothing else. More of a novelty than a beer.

(On tap) Pours a cloudy straw yellow with one finger of frothy white head and no lacing. Nose is tangy grapefruit against a malty wheat background. Taste follows suit, crisp and tangy. Mouth feel is light and crisp, with pleasant carbonation.
This is quite pleasant - a nice shandy to have at a company lunch. The sweetness got to be a bit much after two, though.

Smells like sweet mild grapefruit soda. Taste is sweet same, all without being artificial. Slightly cloudy pale beery look about it. Good soda sizzle as well. Could easily drink a sixer of these if the sugar don’ attack my tummy. Cannot find many, if any, bad things about the taste of this brew. Overall very good beery soda experience. Mild grapefruit soda pop finish. Very well done for a fruit beer JMHO.

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.
