The carbonation and color is unappealing. I have always liked the berry weiss and thought this would be similar. The color is a pinkish brown, super bubbly to the point that it covers up the already subtle taste. the lightness would be nice and refreshing on the right day.

12 oz. bottle- Pours very hazy grapefruit pinkish orange with a head that reduces almost immediately to a collar. Aroma is lemony, some berries, almost like lemon pledge instead of real lemons. Taste is the same, there is a medicinal flavor that is a little offputting. Body is medium, carbonation is slightly high. Overall this was decent, but not as good as I was hoping for.

Almost too sweet, and thats for a Leinenkugel. Aroma is a nice and fruity yet taste is overwhelmingly berry. Poured pink with a white head, light body and very fizzy.

Not sure why this is in a winter pack... More of a spring or fall beer IMO. Tastes like Sunset Wheat mixed with more fruit juice. Way too sweet.

Hazy orangish yellow. Foamy white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Zesty, lemony scent. Sour sweet up front, fades into a bit of tanginesa, but not real hop presence to speak of. Fizzy, light on the palate. Refreshing and good for hot days, but thereís a lot more lemon than beer.

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.

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.

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.
