Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen Grapefruit

Brewery: Schöfferhofer

Beer: Hefeweizen Grapefruit

ABV: 2.5%

What Schöfferhofer has to say about this beer: The world’s first Hefewizen grapefruit beer, a true 50/50 blend of 50% Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen blended with 50% carbonated juice, 100% natural ingredients.

Drinking notes: At first I thought the pour was pink grapefruit but it is actually hazy orange. And guess what? It tastes like Orangina-lite! Grapefruit is pretty much relegated to the label and so is the Hefe profile. Anywhoo, forget your morning orange juice…with a low 2.5% ABV, this could be your go-to, refreshingly light breakfast beer. And the slight carbonation will help you digest your mountain of bacon and sausages. Down the hatch!

As proof of her love for beer, she is dedicating herself to promoting beer corkage as a way for beer lovers to enjoy craft beer at restaurants. Wine lovers have done it forever, so why not beer? Judi believes beer as a food pairing beverage is actually superior to wine! While this may illicit a bit of controversy, she'll take responsibility. In the name of research, Judi tries to drink new beers 'a lot' and is a craft beer evangelist talking to everyone about the glory of craft beer especially trying to mystify the assertion that "beer makes me fat". Yes, if you drink a couple of six packs every night while being a couch potato. Judi also writes an intermittent blog "a woman walks into a bar..." about her experiences sitting at a bar, quaffing delicious booze - beer and cocktails mostly - and schmoozing with fellow imbibers. Judi is Canadian if that makes a difference on how you read her reviews. Prosit!
