3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a strong lemon citrus with tangerine, candy sugar, some other tropical fruits, and a late hint of vanilla bean and anise (maybe more root beer-esque). It pours a murky orange yellow color with a medium thin ring that leaves only a thin ring with no lace. The taste is a medium sweet with light notes of bitter and and even lighter sour. The small bubble, soda-like, fizzy carbonation has a light body and a thin texture. The finish is a fruity soda and vanilla bean flavor with a touch of resin. The aftertaste is lightly tart and dry and it lingers (but it’s not offensive)

On tap at Champs. Aroma of corn, lemonade, and pils yeast. Pours hazy canary yellow with a nice small head and lingering lacing. Taste is lemon peel, italian water ice, corn, wheat, and a light stale finish. Not too sweet but all the makings of a fruity witbier. Not the worst I’ve had.

Transfer from BA review on 10-18-12-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a hazy yellow-orange colored brew (think watery orange juice with tons of pulp) with a tiny white head. The head faded fast leaving very spotty lacing.
Smell – The aroma was rather light. There was a orange aroma with some lighter notes of lemon and biscuit.
Taste – The taste was bready and sweet upfront with lemon and a wheat bread flavor. The lemon sweetness was combined with some orange sweetness more toward the middle of the taste. An overall citrus drink flavor was on the tongue at this point. In the end the citrus sweetness seems to grow even stronger, but is also accompanied by a more biscuity flavor, which with the citrus leave a sweet tart (pastry) flavor to linger on the tongue. Quite sweet but delicious.
Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is rather light in terms of creaminess and is crisp on the tongue. The carbonation level is on the higher side and when combined with the crisper body, it was fantastic for the lemon tart flavors.
Overall – While sweet and citrusy, it is very easy drinking and delicious. This is a wonderful light dessert beer or a thirst quencher on a warmer day.

I wouldn’t consider myself a big shandy fan, but this one is pleasant... refreshing, and tastes pretty good. All qualities that If I’m looking for a shandy I will be looking for, so I suppose in that respect, it does what it is supposed to do.

Cloudy golden with medium white head. Nice lemonade aroma, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is malt and some lemonade. The beer flavor and the lemonade don’t melt for me so pass.

Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a murky yellow with a small, frothy white head. Lemon oil covering up old, wet paper aroma. Country Time lemonade mix, pencil shavings, and cardboard flavors. Leaves a nasty film in your mouth. One of the worst beverages I’ve had in awhile.

It’s a odd beverage that is likely not for everyone, I had higher hopes for this.
