jnkor (364) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Smells like grapefruit juice. Tasks like bubbly grapefruit. Looks like a ruby red body with a ring of white carbonation. Very frithy with an acrid sweetness... like grapefruit.

pumpkinhead2 (887) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2017
Breuvage orangée plutôt pâle, tirant un peu vers le jaune, parfaitement voilée, effervescence soutenue, et surmontée d’un col blanc cassé pas tellement large ni tellement dense, et qui se réduit tout de même assez rapidement. Arômes d’agrumes en général et de pamplemousse en particulier, jus d’agrumes et de pamplemousse qui semble plutôt sucré, sucre brut… On note peut-être quelques effluves de pain frais et de blé… C’est sûr que ça sent bien bon, nez bien intense, mais on ne peut pas dire que ça fasse vraiment «bière», et il n’y a aucune complexité… En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais, on note un certain velouté, un certain moelleux. Au goût, comme le nez nous l’annonçait, c’est particulièrement sucré, beaucoup de sucre brut, de sirop de maïs… Saveur de pamplemousse également (évidemment!), mais la haute teneur en sucre fait presque davantage penser à de l’orange ou de la tangerine (voire de l’orange confite!). On décèle également un peu le goût de la base de bière (pain frais, blé…) ainsi que quelques nuances acides (pamplemousse, agrumes, saveur sûre typique de la bière de blé…). Aucune amertume! Goût correct, bonne intensité en bouche, faible complexité. C’est ma première expérience avec un «Radler», et sans dire que je trouve ça mauvais, je dois dire que je ne trippe pas trop non plus, c’est trop éloigné de la bière. Et ce «Radler» en particulier me semble vraiment trop sucré pour un breuvage qui pourrait s’apparenter à une «Bière au pamplemousse». À chaque gorgée, j’ai ensuite les lèvres collantes! Dégustation correcte, sans plus…

SinH4 (3728) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2017
Can. Orangey color with nice head. Aroma is grapefruit, Hefeweizen, rather sweet. Taste is the same. Quite refreshing, but I’ve had better Grapefruit Radlers.

puboflyons (3235) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2017
From the can. Grapefruit-looking pale yellow color with quick head. With the grapefruit added to this beer that is mainly the aroma I pick up on the nose. It smells fresh and clean like a Shandy should. The body is light and refreshing. Carbonated. The taste is more about grapefruit juice and sweetness than toasted bread or white read malts. Slight fizzy tartness at the end. Just not my thing.

Zymurgeist2 (2005) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 10, 2017
From bottle to glass. Pours a hazy orange with minimal head. Grapefruity sweetness dominates, especially in the flavor. Had this on a moderate cold (for California) afternoon while it was pouring rain outside. Could see this being more enjoyable if it was the summer and 80 degrees F outside. Really just like a grapefruit juice, without much of the weizen aspect showing. Slightly tart.

weitz15 (562) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Aroma is strong grapefruit. Strong citrus flavor that is a little sweet for a hefe. Flat palate and finish. Might be good to sip on after golf, but not too often.

hawthorne00 (3668) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Orange with a small white head. Smells like diluted grapefruit juice. Very soft drink -like. Quite sweet but still refreshing. Only the head and a little wheat and grass at the end tell you that there’s beer in here. As a summer at the beach dustcutter it’s OK.

AirForceHops (6606) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 18, 2016
16 oz. pounder can from Kittery, 7 Eleven. Pours cloudy orange / yellow with plenty of white head, mild lacing. Aroma is ruby red grapefruit and wheat (mostly grapefruit). Flavor is sweet red grapefruit with a wheat backbone. Just a lot of juice. Spritzy mouthfeel. My problem with Shandy’s is they don’t taste like beer. This is mostly grapefruit soda here. Yeah, it is what it is.
