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.
