Description 

ACCORDING TO LEGEND, ONE SUNNY AFTERNOON A SMALL BAVARIAN PUB WAS INUNDATED WITH THIRSTY CYCLISTS. RATHER THAN RUN OUT OF BEER, THE CRAFTY BARMAN ADDED CITRUS JUICE TO HIS BREW, AND THE RADLER WAS BORN.

INSPIRED BY THIS CONCEPT, WILSON AND TOMMY CREATED TW PITCHERS' RADLER, A REFRESHINGLY CRISP BLEND OF LAGER AND GRAPEFRUIT WITH A HINT OF BLOOD ORANGE FOR GOOD MEASURE. PROST!

Upon pouring, prominent aromas of bright pink grapefruit fruit pour forth from the glass with a splash of fresh raspberry juice and all supported by a backbone of freshly milled white flour. The beer has a pleasing, ivory head that sits atop a hazy, straw-colored beer. In the flavor, I'm first hit by a pithy and pleasantly tart, mouthwatering slice of grapefruit and big, juicy, almost fully ripe strawberry elements. With lots of pleasing mouthfeel characteristics, this radler is refreshing and crisp with a nice, dry finish. The high carbonation slices through the full, creamy body, striking a pleasant balance between slightly sweet and highly sessionable.
