All I can say is wow! I've never had a beer that tasted like this. It really is malty and nice in the middle but with a citrus finish that is distinctly grapefruit. A nice change from the typical summer refresher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagerboy (1066) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
Amber orange with a hazy hint of pink, no head, medium carbed. Light malty citrus aroma, tart citrus taste over light malts, no hops, nice grapefruit finish. Very refreshing and easy to drink, great summer sipper.

bunget (436) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy golden body with some pink tone, small white head, medium retention and almost no lacing. Mild aroma of wheat, grapefruit, slightly floral and a touch of spices. Taste has a nice malty backbone, caramel, grapefruit, coriander, lightly floral hops. Very enjoyable.

zeek (165) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2011
Pours a lively head that fizzles out in a few minutes. Color is a red tinged gold, slightly cloudy. Aroma of grapefruit citrus over a mild malt. Taste starts off like "sour breakfast grapefruit juice" and finishes slightly malty. Very refreshing and well done.

A great summer beer (end of June now) if you like the taste of grapefruits... if youíre getting tired of the usual beer try this stuff.

Narnad (1416) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pours a very hazy, slightly cloudy copper color with a very nice tall, off white head. Aroma has a lot of grapefruit and lemon citrus juice nose to it with a light caramel malt sweetness late. Flavor has a very pungent grapefruit juice taste with a lot of acidity. Malt creeps in at the very end with some mild toasted notes and some sweet caramel malt late in the sampling. Body is slightly sugary, with a low amount of carbonation and a slight oily texture to it. Overall a very interesting and unique brew. The grapefruit comes through with a terrific acidic juice flavor of which I havenít seen in any other brew. Very tasty.

Metalchopz (2117) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
From the LCBO, in the BC Craft Brewers Guild Natural Selections 6-pack. Pours a hazy amber colour with a warm soapy head, average retention and minimal lacing. Grainy aromas of a blonde ale malt with the grapefruit zest (becomes orange-like with time) in the background well-blended with the hop. Caramel malt taste with subtle grapefruit notes and light bitterness. Not so much a fruit beer, but a real amber ale with hints of the fruit. Might appeal more to those who do not like fruit beers.

sulawang (541) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2011
excellent refreshing ale that tastes as advertised - flavours of pink grapefruit, minor tartness and sourness, slight bitter finish with hints of honey in between. Not terribly complex but a great summer beer that goes down easy and quenches the thirst. Medium bodied and medium length.

kidmartinek (3299) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours a hazy, deep amber or copper rather and waiting for the cigarraette poop stink to dissipate you can vaguely smell some fruit。 the f在avour is decidedly grapefruit though and oh so very nice. A very nice grapefruity tasting beer if you can get through the grapefruit poop smoke smell of the other patrons... because after all we all know, thatís what cigarettes smell like is poop.

(bottle) clear light amber colour with a small white head; aromas of honey, sweet fruit; balanced if simple flavour, refreshing
