Beer + Grapefruit Soda = Beer?

Eric:  Apparently it’s pretty popular, but I just had my first Stiegl Radler (Grapefruit) today.  They claim it’s half Stiegl Goldbrau, and half fruit soda.  It tasted exactly like Grapefruit Pelligrino, which I love, but I have trouble considering this a beer.  Especially at only 2.5%.  If I drank 10 of these, I’d be more worried about the impending diabetes than my ability to operate heavy machinery like my JCB 3CX backhoe loader.  They also make a lemon version.

I don’t get the difference between this and stuff like Mike’s Hard Lemonade, or Zima (Andrew’s favorite).  But if it tastes good, has a bit of alcohol, and will give you diabetes, it’s a win for the Brewboyz!  I give it a rating of 68 out of a possible 84 grapefruits.
