Super refreshing beer. Light glowing gold. Aroma and taste were nice balance of ginger, lemon, and soda water. Highly carbonated and definitely had a lemonade feel. Perfect summer stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a very small head.
The aroma is lemony & bright it’s lightly sweet smelling with a touch of the ginger. It’s inviting and surprising that it’s not overbearing in any elements particularly sweetness.
The flavor is tart & lemony with a nice light doughiness. The beer is sweet but decidedly not overly sweet. It’s got a mild ginger flavor up front but as the beer warms the ginger root comes out more and more... on both accounts the flavor is pretty well integrated into the flavor profile of the beer as a whole.
On all accounts a sort of benchmark for the Shandy/Radler style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared from a bottle into sampler glasses. It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a sudsy head of tight little white bubbles. A spin on German/Austrian Radler beer which is typically a blend of lager with carbonated fruit juice. This one used Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat as the base, which is a really nice, light, grainy summer spritzer to begin with. The sour lemon and spicy ginger added a great new spin. Light body, tart aftertaste with just a hint of residual fruit sugar. I still prefer Stiegl, but only because I like grapefruit better than lemon and ginger. This one was very tasty too, and equally well-crafted.

16 oz pilsner style glass. Foamy and amber. Very drinkable fruit beer. Approached this one with trepidation. Turns out it’s an outstanding hot weather brew, Light, spicy, well balanced. Love it.
