This week’s beer: Grapefruit Radler by Stiegl.
This 2.5% alcohol fruit beer is brewed by Stieglbrauerei zu Salzburg in Austria.
It pours with a honey color and has little-to-no head. The aroma is grapefruity and crisp.
The taste is of tangy grapefruit with a sweet, lemon finish. It has a light body and lots of carbonation. It’s reminiscent of Fresca soda, but with a little bit of a beer bite.
Honestly, I was all prepared to hate this particular beverage. I’m not a fan of fruit beers in general, but this one is really nice. It’s refreshing and tasty with just enough alcohol to make it interesting. It would be a great to drink on a hot day in the sun without getting sloshed.
Pair with key lime pie or fresh fruit.
