The sweet grapefruit flavors over power everything, making it hard to tell if you are drinking beer, or fruit juice. For me, it is too sweet, and not that interesting due to the fact that all you can taste is that one flavor.

(canned) - Big bubbles in the foamy head. Very carbonated body. Dusky orange looking color. The only thing picking up in the aroma is pink grapefruit. A bit perfumy. Flavor is the same. All grapefruit all the time. Since it’s 50% grapefruit "drink" (whatever that means) it doesn’t really surprise me. Mouthfeel of soda pop. Hard to classify this as a beer despite there being hefe in there. Still, it’s not horrible!

Attractive carrot colored orange body, and enticing aroma. If you like grapefruit drinks, you will love this. I admit it is delicious! My wife hates beer and even she likes it. Speaking of which, there is nothing "beer" tasting about it, it tastes only like a grapefruit drink. The Hefeweizen part is missing. On one hand, it is probably one of the yummiest beers I have ever had, however, at only 2.5% ABV, it is one of the weakest I have had.

Walking in its a heavy sugary grapefruit juice scent, and the taste matches exactly. Color is pales yellow with pink tint. Can

Refeshing radler type drink. Would it be nicer with proper fresh juice and genuine grapefruit tartness. Very sweet otherwise and lack of any wheatbeer qualities.

Nie (112) - - MAY 12, 2017
Sweet fresh grapefuit aroma. Light creamy peach color. Loads of bubbles, thin white head that disappears very quickly. Sweet citrus, slight pith, lingering wheat, sweet finish with just enough bitter rind. Not much hefe here but still an enjoyable drink.

Trifft leider garnicht meinen Geschmack, da steckt viel Chemie drin! Die Farbe ist ok!

Garrold (5063) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Can. Mitchell’s Wines, Sheffield. Colour of pink grapefruit juice. Ring of small bubbles. Very cloudy. Nose has tinned grapefruit and wheat. Not a lot else, but then you’d probably not expect it. Taste is sweet and juicy. Lemonade like mouthfeel. Does have some dryness. Juicy sweet finish. Thankfully it doesn’t come across artificial at all, and on a warm day is definitely one I’d have again.

theOptimator (385) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Aroma is grapefruit citrus. Appearance is hazy dark orange with large white frothy head. Taste is grapefruit tart forward with some citrus, followed by a wheaty banana. Palate is medium and creamy, excellent refreshing palate, velvety. Overall really refreshing, excellent on a really hot day when you want to drink a few but not get drunk,

ManVsBeer (9993) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Keg @ Hogshead Brewhouse, Sowerby Bridge. Extremely well stated with its fruit in both aroma and taste, and has both a bitter-sweet finish that lingers. Cloudy orange with next to no head.

tgrtnr (124) - Augsburg, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
Vibrant orange, small head. Grapefruit, yeast, citrus. Slightly bitter, sour and sweet. Lively carbonated. Medium body. Not much Weizenbier, but nice refreshing summer drink.
