2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Semi hazy pink pour with a white head. Sweet berry aroma with faint hints of lemon. Tastes like it smells...dominant sweet berries initially with a light lingering lemon flavor. Watery texture with average carbonation. About what you would expect based on the label. A little too sweet, but it is drinkable.

The aroma has lemon berry candy with adjunct malts. The appearance is hazy pink-gold with a medium head that leaves nice lace. The taste is macro lager with artificial fruit flavor. The palate is thin. Overall almost not worth a try.

This really isnít my kind of beer anyway. Tried it just because it was there and free. And most of the time if it free you can dismiss what it taste like. I couldnít finish it. It taste like candy. I wasnít even sure it was beer. Drink with caution.

on tap Pours a cloudy light pink/orange color. Lemon aroma. Medium carbonation. Tastes of lemon and berries. Very drinkable. Almost tastes like a wine cooler. Much better than either berryweiss or summer shandy

I am a fan of Summer Shandy, but not Berry Weiss. This is basically a mix of this two beers from Leinenkugel. As a result, this is tough one for me to rate. I want to really like it, but I just find it too sweet. It would be an OK summer beer, but I think I will stick with Summer Shandy when I am in the mood for this style of beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In early fall 2012; Leinenkugelís introduced its newest beer, Lemon Berry Shandy. It is rumored that this was crudely made over the years at Summerfest by combining their Summer Shandy and Berry Weiss. It became fairly popular and even was made in the bars before finally being a beer of its own. Letís see how it fairs when it comes down to rating.
It pours a murky pink color like grapefruit juice with a light pink head. There is a mild scent of lemons and blackberries in the mix as well as wheat. Overall there is a sweet aroma indicating a sweet flavor. This is fairly inviting.
The taste of Berry Weiss is very evident here with lots of blackberry juice flavor. There is an after taste of lemon that is a little off-putting. The taste is obviously fruity and kind of awkward throughout. It finishes kind of tangy and sour leaving an unpleasant taste in your mouth.
Two decently made beers combined sounds like a good idea, but the execution of the plan falls short. This is a great summer beer when you are thirsty after mowing the yard. But as a rate-able fruit beer, there are a lot better beers on the market. Better than average overall, but not by much.

11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Goofy pink pour with a small off-white head. Fruity, berry and lemon aroma that really reminds of berry lemonade. The flavor is much the same, almost juice- or soda-like... lots of berry and lemon in there. I canít say this is exactly what Iím looking for in a beer, but for what it is... it delivers.
