Pours a hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating head. I really wanted to like this better. The lemon seems to have provided a bit too much sourness but not as much flavor. Needs done sweetness for balance.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, decent head and lacing. Fruity, citrus on the nose. Very sweet, very lemony. Not one of Abita’s better ales. Maybe it’s be better on a sweltering summer day.

kramer (5103) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is much closer to lemonade than it is beer. Even among its Shandy brethren, this smells especially lemon-y. The flavor is much the same, tastes like an alcoholic lemonade instead of a Fruit Beer. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering lemon drop finish. There’s a bit of a chemical tasting note that linger on the finish. Not my kinda thing, but used it fill up that last spot in a mix 6er.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle BEST BY 11/19/14. Nose is sweet and lemony with herbs and potent light laundry detergent and minty toothpaste -- a strange but still-compelling mix. Pours lightly hazy dark yellow with a foamy white head. Taste lemon and wheat, minty toothpaste. Lightly grainy, only lightly sweet, very low bitterness, light crispness, fresh and quenching. Medium body with faint chalky coating, one I’d ask for again.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: finger white head, straw color, light cloudiness, good lacing. Aroma: heavy lemon, cereal, somewhat chemical aroma. Palate: light body, sparkling carbonation, light bitter finish, thin and also cloying texture. Taste: sweet malty wheat with huge lemon zest fruitiness that overpowers everything, finish is slightly bitter finish. Overall, refreshing, but not drinkable, and not very good overall. Maybe a good beer after a hot day outside, but nothing worth buying a 6-pack.

obguthr (4081) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Yeast and new plastic smell. Cloudy yellow, medium snow white head, some lacing. Vegetal whole lemon flavor, new plastic still present. Boiled cabbage. Light body. Craft beer can do much better than this. Catastrophe.

a little zestier than their standard wheat with a little citrus twang, otherwise unremarkable.

Rperez (150) - Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2014
I didn't find crisp or refreshing but rather flat and uninspired, its a similar a wheat beer and someone dropped a lemon in it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
