citrus, fruit, particles of berry settle on the bottom, light sweetness, lightly sour, did not expect much and was pleasantly surprised by taste, light body, lively, not sure why it was included in a winter pack, cranberry?

Itís not as awful as its Summer Shandy cousin, but it still isnít great. If the citrus flavor of the Summer Shandy is all that puts you off of it then you may actually enjoy this one. The "berry" flavor overpowers the overall garbage quality of their Summer Shandy, which is, Iím assuming, why its current rating is so much higher than the non-berry version. Decent as a summer beverage, absolute crap as a beer.

nearbeer (3432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2012
On tap. Light haze on the golden body with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is faux berry and lemon, with some whiffs of factory-cracked grain. Taste is the same with maybe a hint of dry grass and honey. Light body has medium carbonation and is sweet. This one is pretty much what an informed beer consumer should expect when purchasing an industrial brew, and the shandy part seems to be totally a matter of having a liking for the style or not. Personally Iíve never had a shandy I liked very well, but if I was on the beach in Jamaica with the choice between this and a BMC, Iíd probably choose this one until it got so sweet that I vomited. Then Iíd switch to a BMC until I vomited.

This was just not my thing. The nose is intensely lemony and blackberry packed. The beer is a pale pinkish with a fizzy white cap. Sweet with tart lemon notes. The berry additions giving the feeling of an off flavor like hairspray. Light and crisp with a tart finish.

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2012
While shopping at Giant Eagle market district I had a 2-3 oz sample of this from a littel kiosk. Decently fresh taste, does have that typical shandy feel to it and the berries are ever present. Not too bad over all and I found it quite refreshing. there was a little bitterness on the finish but nothing over the top.

12 oz bottle This was shared at Thanksgiving 2012. The shandy poured a pinkish color with small head and lacing. The fruit beers are my least favorite style. It must be popular there seems to plenty to try. There was tart lemon and some berry. The sweetness of the fruit over powered any malt or beer like flavors. Carbonation was soft.

johnnyoski (415) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2012
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.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2012
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.

Berry and malts on aroma. Cloudy copper body with hints of amber. Overly carbonated, synthetic taste of berries.
