There isn’t much to say about this beer’s nose. There’s a muted grapefruit aroma, but that’s literally it. I can’t find any other scents that would make me believe I was about to drink a beer at all. On the palate, it’s surprisingly watery and fizzy, almost like seltzer water or the cheapest light beer you can imagine. There’s more grapefruit flavor here, but it tastes almost artificial.
Frequently, beers using these hops are brewed with the addition of grapefruit and are referred to as grapefruit pales or IPAs but grapefruit beer is not a style per se.
Normally, I don’t notice the color, but this beer looks like grapefruit soda. The smell is all citrus peel and ripe grapefruit. Anything else is overpowered. Tasting it, I could have sworn that someone changed out one of the beers for Squirt soda or something similar. It doesn’t even taste like beer a little bit.

I wasn’t surprised to learn this was Stiegl Grapefruit Radler. It’s one of the lowest ABV beers on this list and tastes exactly like you assume it would. More like a hard grapefruit soda than a beer. 4) Great Divide Roadie (Taste 6) Great Divide
But don’t mistake Schöfferhofer for one hit wonders. They’ve been singing the praises of wheat beer since 1978, when the original Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen was produced in its traditional, unfiltered form. It’s all brewed in Mainz at Binding Brewery, started by Conrad Binding in 1870. A dark brown Triple Ale, which makes it an exception among the Belgian Triples. Gulden Draak is re-fermented in the bottle, and in the keg, making it a real “Living Beer”. The second fermentation offers the nice creamy head and the full body of the centuries old brewers yeast. It is a beer that you... Read more » With aromas of orange, grapefruit, and pine, this fruity beer has won many awards, and it’s no surprise why its so popular among beer drinkers. Great Divide Roadie is a Radler, but instead of being one-dimensional and all grapefruit, it actually has some substance.
