Bottle/Fest. A- Lemon, wheat. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Lemon, soapy, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly sweet finish. O- A pretty average wheat with a decent about of lemon. Not too artificial tasting and not as overpowering as some other Abita fruit beers. Decent.

crossovert (9510) - Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2015
335ml bottle. Lightly hazed gold pour, fizzy white head. Aroma is mostly bready, some lemon. Flavor brings far more lemon, wheat, and some herbs, light refreshing, ultimately uninteresting.

DocJitsu (1295) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours a clear light golden color with a creamy white head. Wheat malt nose with a tangy citrus quality. Nice mouthfeel. Full, creamy, and ample carbonation. Earthy wheat malt flavor. Lemon juice notes.

DrinkinWell (389) - - NOV 24, 2014
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 (5393) - 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 (5247) - 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 (835) - 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.
