4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful hazy yellow color. Two to three finger white head. Aroma is all about the ginger; the smell comes through so strong to me it reminds me of Vicks vapor rub. Taste is a good balance between the lemon and ginger. Feels great in the mouth; perfect carbonation. Overall I’m surprised by this beer in the most wonderful way. Fantastic.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Comes out of the can hazy solar yellow with a thick, if effervescent, snow-white head. Lemon dominates the aroma, letting a little malt peep through. Smells more like lemonade than beer. More malt comes forth in the otherwise lemonade-like and somewhat tart flavor so you know you’re drinking beer and not an offering from a kid’s neighborhood stand. That is one thing I can never resist, a kid selling lemonade. Mouthfeel features weak body and not much fizz. Still, a good one for a hot day - or to bring a little summer into your fall, or winter.

Cloudy pale yellow with dissipating head. Smells like ginger lemonade. Mainly tastes like ginger lemonade. No surprises here. Ginger flavor lingers long after a sip. Still, it’s a nice and refreshing replacement for a soda or lemonade.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a can I’m not sure if this is beer, ginger ale or lemon aide. Very good carbonation but there is a slight hop bitterness in there that I don’t really care for. Yes, this is probably why it rates so high on RB for a fruit beer, that little bit of hop bitterness that is so prevalent in most of the higher rated ales, regardless of he style. Goodly amount of ginger in there, perhaps that is what I detect as a bitterness. Smell is a little farmy. Pretty good overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma contains plenty of lemon and ginger. The flavor is very carbonated and refreshing. There is nothing complex about this beer and my rating will indeed be higher on a hot summer day in Atlanta than it would on a cold winter night but that is the point right?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at Winking Lizard. Cloudy yellow color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly to a sparse outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of lemons, wheat and malt. Light-bodied with a tart lemony character with notes of herbal wheat and malt in the background. The finish is fruity with a ginger and lemon aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Twelve ounce can from Boulevard summer sampler 12 pack purchased at Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on September 6, 2015. Cloudy yellow hue with a bit of green, tart lemon nose, highly carbonated lemon/ginger flavor. Better than a lot of other examples of the style but not really my thing.
