3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a super hazy yellow color, similar to orange juice. No head. Smell is straight up grapefruit, and nothing else. Taste is basically what you’d expect from a grapefruit soda, though there is a mild malt flavor present. It’s actually really good, but definitely not something to drink if you want a regular beer. Makes me wish it were warmer out. First time I’ve said that this July. Refreshing!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a cloudy, straw-yellow with a huge frothy white head that fades away quickly in a pint glas, leaving nothing but a small bubbly rim. Aroma of grapefruit pulp, hay, bitter grapefruit zests, herbal hops. Nice! Taste is actually quite dry - a good quality in a Radler if you ask me. Only light sweetness in the background, but mostly tart. Pretty soon dominated by a nice, light bitter finish with a reprise of grapefruit zest and herbal hops. Body is cloudy, medium, lively carbonated but not fizzy. Not watery at all.
I never liked Radler all that much, but I had to see what all the fuzz on american beer blogs is about. Not too sweet, not watery. Bubbly, but not dominated by fizzy carbonation. Some reviewers state that this has no beer characteristics. I disagree. From the first nose, there were clear beer notes. Clear herbal notes and hop bitterness. This is a Radler I could get used to.

Jaune comme une limonade, voilée, cernée d’une fine mousse. Un nez de pamplemousse et autres agrumes. C’est pétillant et fruité. C’est des plus rafraîchissants. À chaque fois que je bois un Radler, j’ai plus l’impression de boire une boisson aux agrumes. C’est quand même bon au goût. (1920-140816)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, 0.5l. Hazy yellow pour with minimal and short lasting white head. Smells very refreshing, grapefruit and lemonade, touch of orange peel.
Body falls between thin and medium, smooth texture. Carbonation is soft yet prickly enough to put emphasis on the refreshing citrus flavor. Taste is fruity bittersweet. Aroma is fruity - grapefruit, lemonade, mixed citrus. There is no usual soapy and sugary water flavors in here, it has more natural taste. Some slight malts flavor is present in the aftertaste.
Overall, very good radler. Sure, it’s not much of a beer, feels more like a soda - but it is damn tasty and refreshing drink. Perfect for hot summer days. Recommended.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can drink, so no info on color / foam. Smell is intense grapefruit. Sweet aspects, but not overly so. Taste is rather bitter, very sharp fruityness. Dry ( fruity ) ending. Light body, as expected by a 2 % drink. not too shabby though. I’d dare to compare this to the Breezer-drinks that used to be immensly popular a decade ago. Just like them, they are very easy to drink, and far from bad taste-wise. However, the discussion is big on wether this could be called ’ beer’

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy and lemon-colored with a fluffy, meringue head that thins quickly. The nose has grapefruit and lemonade. Easy intro with a mildly-carbonated mouthfeel and finishing with mild grapefruit and lemon drops.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Slight hazy golden with very short lasting fizzy white head and lots of bubbles in the glass. Looks like soft drink. Light maltyness, lots of grapefruit, some grass, mineral water, a touch of straw. Almost medium sweet and light bitter. Light bodied with soft drink like carbonation. Not really a beer, but quite good for a radler.

Bottle from Whole Foods PM. Poured turbid golden with nose of grapefruit. Semisweet flavor, but not too sweet, with a refreshing finish. I could drink a lot of these on a hot summer day.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow copper with a small bubbly head. Aroma of grapefruit. Sweet, flavors of grapefruit, lemon, slightly artificial, light tartness. Light-bodied, refreshing. More a soft drink rather than a beer, still OK.
