Taster glass. I think we may want to separate true Radlers from fruit beers, as a finished beer with juice or soda added before packaging is a different animal than one fermented with fruit. For one, this is intended to be low-alcohol, and for two, it’s not fair to be comparing this to a DFH Fort. That said, this is pretty tasty. Does not hide the fact that it’s light in alcohol, though probably the grapefruit adds some sugar calories. In fact, it does have a bit of an added sugar taste that might have been meant to keep the grapefruit from souring up the works. Not a world-beater, but recommended if I were ever actually "on the go."
Bottle. Super refreshing. Nose of grapefruit backed up with a hint of lime. Tastes the same. A bit too sweet at the back end.

Can. Wasn’t expecting much... sweet and sugary, but not too soda-like, which I was thankful for. Sour grapefruit (duh), plenty of citrus, but not too tart. Actually not that bad and doesn’t have any negative aftertaste or lasting dead sugar... Accomplishes its aims nicely. gampdaddy (3) - - AUG 17, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Poured from can, head is a whitish fizz, very similar to soda. The color is tan, almost yellow. Grapefruit is very much present, with the bitterness of the alcohol blending in to form a delicious drink. Highly recommended. Tjeerd (607) - GERMANY - AUG 5, 2017
Het is weer eens wat anders; en smaakt ook redelijk. Niet naar bier, maar lekker op een warme avond. klukas (307) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JUL 31, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a can into shaker glass.
Appearance: Hazy pale yellow colour, without any head and with many bubbles from the middle � Looks like juice..
Palate: Light body, moderate carbonation.
Taste: Lemon and grapefruit, first taste is sweet then bitter, and then beery aftertaste.
Overall impression: Very drinkable and refreshing, tasty.
Note: Very tasty and refreshing. I didn�t notice something artificial as in some other radlers.

Had a glass at The Town Crier, Toronto. Served in a tall thin glass. No head whatsoever. Has an appearance of actual grapefruit juice. Very cloudy/hazy. Big grapefruit aromas are immediate with some strong citrus hops following. Very sweet and tangy citrus flavours and again, the grapefruit is quite noticeable. Has an astringent and mild warming mouthfeel. Slight sourness. Very tangy in the finish as well. Not too bad. anstei (2450) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Can. Pours cloudy pale yellow. Aroma is strong grapefruit, and only grapefruit. Artificial grapefruit, that is. Body is medium, soda sweet, super lively carbonation, really a soda. Why would you put alcohol in this? FinnIckler (758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Can. Pours apple juice colored. Nose is citrus, grapefruit, orange. A tad artificial citrus. Palate is grapefruit with citrus finish. Good radler! HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2017
December 4, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs and mabel - 500ml can. Hazy pale yellow, diminishing head. Smells like grapefruit, and ... MORE grapefruit. Taste - well, ...... grapefruit. Sharp carbonation, finishes ... grapefruit. Good, but what do you say? Started to taste like "WINK" in the aftertaste. Canadians know what that is .... monkeychugg55 (1096) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Hazy light yellow with a small white head. Very fizzy. The aroma is mostly grapefruit juice, with some very subtle bready malt in the background. The flavor is mostly grapefruit juice, with some faint beer flavors that keep this from seeming like just a soda. Sweet all in all, with a lot of carbonation.
