2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to pint. Looks artificial; an opaque pinkish-orange with white lacing. Smells of wheat and berries.. Tastes like it smells.. Average on the palate. Not my favorite shandy - by any stretch.

According to the folks at leines this is actually a lager. I thought it was lemonade actually.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine and Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy medium orange with a nice soft white head that leaves bit of lacing. Berry-like aroma is very faint and somewhat artificial. Flavor has some blackberry accents, a touch of lemon sourness, some yeasty notes, some biscuity maltiness. Mouthfeel is slightly pasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the local Wal-Mart. Pours pink lemonade-y with a white head. Aroma has berries, sweet fruit, seltzer and some wheat. Taste is of tums, berries and sweet pink lemonade. Finishes fairly short and sweet/tart. Not a pourer, but much more wine spritzer-ish than beer-ish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured an unappealing shade of hazy pink with a dense, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up lemon rind, salt, and blackberries over a weak base of earthy wheat.. some artificial sweetener character.. smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor found watery wheat at the core with sweet lemon-lime juice, tart blackberry seeds, and salt throughout.. refreshing, fairly sweet finish. Light-bodied with moderate, spritzy carbonation on the palate.. not beery, but overall refreshing and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can -pours hazy reddish orange with little white head and thin lacing. Nose is, well, lemon and berry. Flavor adds wheat and more summertime sweetness. Fizzy, sweet and tart. There seems to be a smoky backbone, but I could be wrong. Very burpy. Quite refreshing during the last warm days before the true Fall appears. Abrupt finish. This four-pack is not going to last. Yum!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy peach color with a white ring. Aroma of a strawberry lemon drop. Very fruity on the palate and the nose. Citrus and berry flavors. Subtle hints of wheat. Very light and sort of watery. Does not taste like beer, tastes like a watered down mixed drink made with ginger ale. I guess it would be good on a hot day at the lake.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sample on tour. Pours almost the color of grapefruit juice. Aroma is citrus fruits. This tasted like kool-aid. Drinkable but not something I enjoyed at all.
